New Delhi: Looks like Bollywood is no more abashed about portraying gay characters in its mainstream cinema. After 'Kapoor and Sons' and 'Aligarh' – another movie will have a gay character in its story, and a mainstream actor will be playing lead.
According to a report in TOI, originally attributed to Spotboye.com, Akshay Kumar will be playing a gay man in upcoming flick 'Dishoom'.
The actor was in Abu Dhabi to shoot his bit of the part along with Varun Dhawan and John Abraham.
