No explicit scenes in 'Inkaar'

New Delhi, Jan 16 (IANS) Although Sudhir Mishra's "Inkaar" talks about sexual harrasement at the workplace and word 'sex' has been used 262 times in it, but reportedly the director has not used any explicit scenes to narrate his story.

The film is releasing Friday with U-A certificate, and the real content will revealed only then.

But if sources are to be believed, there was a kiss and few lovemaking scenes between the film's lead pair - Arjun Rampal and Chitrangada Singh - in the script, however, owing to Chitrangada's hesitation, changes were made in the script.

Chitrangada was apparently adamant about not doing any revealing or sexual scene in the film and Mishra made adequate changes to appease the lady.

An insider confirmed, "Yes, the kissing scene was removed from the script."

Writer Manoj Tyagi to direct bilingual film

After capturing Mumbai culture in his directorial debut "Mumbai Salsa", now writer-turned-director Manoj Tyagi dons the director's hat for bilingual thriller "Sakshat".

The supernatural thriller, written by Tyagi himself, will be made in Bengali and Hindi and Raj Behl of Shree Balaji Mudra Films TV and Video will produce it.

"This is my first attempt at a bilingual and I have always been intrigued by topics of supernatural and horror," Tyagi said in a statement.

Tyagi, who has been associated with "Satta", "Page 3", "Corporate" and "Heroine" as a writer, feels understanding emotions while writing is important.

"Storytelling is an art for which understanding of life is very important. The core of writing is emotions and not just mere understanding of writing," he said.

Tyagi's next movie is "Inkaar". Directed by Sudhir Mishra, it features Chitrangada Singh and Arjun Rampal.
