The film is Called Qutub Minar, and that’s the name given to the hero of the film Karanvir Bohra who suffers from macro-phallus, a condition where the reproductive organ is unnaturally large.
Bohra’s character suffers endless taunts for his condition. Bravely the young actor has gone into a territory which most of his peers would shy away from.
“Yahan par if an actor plays gay, people make presumption on his real-life sexual orientation. The same goes for any affliction. It was brave of Karanvir to take up such a controversial role where a large part of the dialogue will converge on the unusual size of one part of the anatomy,” says an informed source.
The last time an actor played a man with an unusually over-sized reproductive organ was Mark Wahlberg in Boogie Nights.
With a close cropped haircut and lean gaunt physique, Karanveer is looking very different these days.
He explains, “The look is for a film that I’m doing called Qutub Minar.It’s a very interesting story I play a character with a rare disorder . It’s a father-son story where the terrific Sanjay Mishra protects his son from ridicule and taunts.”
Karanvir has become a big Sanjay Mishra fan. “He looks after every actor. He says this subject has not been tried in cinema from any part of the world. I’m blessed to be working with Sanjayji.”
