He strongly defends the association of Kamasutra with porn.
"India is known as a land of Kamasutra. The epic erotica is as significant as Gita or Ramayana. It is not just about sensuality and eroticism. It is a struggle of human mind to understand one of the most important areas of life. It is pathetic to relate this ancient scripture to porn," he said."If you go to Paris, every coffee shop will have an abridged version of Kamasutra. The ancient scriptures are read and appreciated by millions of people abroad and we never owned it. It is such a shame," added Paul.There is another reason why the director has decided to release the film in 2013.
"Indian cinema is completing 100 years in 2013 and an epic film like 'Kamasutra' should release in the same year. The film will do the rounds at various international festivals and it will be in a way celebration of Indian culture also apart from Indian cinema" he says.The movie's initial trailers, shot by Sapan Narula, will be screened soon in Los Angeles Nov 4 and later at the Berlin International Film Festival.Earlier, Mira Nair's "Kamasutra: A Tale Of Love", released in 1996, delved on the same subject.
