About the project

Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves: Abraham Lincoln




It is the 21st century now, and we as humans have achieved tremendous success in the space of science, arts, infrastructure and the likes, but how far have we truly come in terms of liberation?

While we’re struggling with gender inequality, there is still one major concern that needs to be addressed i.e. the stigma that comes with being a homosexual.

We have tackled numerous issues and ideologies as a society, but why are we still wary about accepting choices and differences of an individual’s sexual orientation? Why do we disapprove of homosexual individuals leading a ‘normal life’? And, why should a homosexual individual’s ‘normal’ be approved by us in the first place?

The Door deals with the dilemma of one such man. Hailing from a rich family, Dev has the wealth to lead a luxurious life, but what good is all the wealth in the world when your basic need to love and choose is taken away from you?

After being forcefully married to Radhika, an independent, middle class girl, Dev is forced to face the reality of this situation. Will they be able to find a way out of this mess?

Exploring this moving journey the film shadows two characters battling their emotions. Do they eventually find a way to truly be free? We'll only know if we're able to complete this film and release it.

Who are we and why are we making this film?
We truly believe in the power of cinema, and we, as humans, relate to the emotions that we see on screen. If you have related to or loved a character on screen, and lived their journey in that story, the emotions portrayed there would leave an indelible mark on your mind. If nothing else, you would at least open your mind to the possibility of a change or further strengthen your resolve to help those who are suffering. And that's the first step in bringing a change and embracing one, which is what we wish to do with this film. 



Addressing a concern is of utmost importance, and the message of this film is just that. With strong performances from the whole cast, the film aims to push the masses to open doors of their heart and mind, to accept a small change that soon could be a movement.



We just launched our trailer! Check it out here - 


What happens if you fail to raise your target amount?

If we don't make it to the target, then all our efforts in the past year will go down the drain. It would be a huge let down for everyone who came on board to lend their voice to a subject that is so relevant.

Why crowdfunding?

When we started the film, we thought we would be able to accomplish this by the funds collected from our own pockets. But gradually, as the film started to take shape we wanted to make it in the best possible way we could. We are certain that this film will make a lot of noise and create a positive impact. However for this to happen, we need the support of not just our friends and family, but of all the people who believe in this change and acceptance. Help us make a positive reform and take this film to various festivals.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 250000 in Marketing

Rs. 150000 in Press Release & Screening

Rs. 50000 in Festival Submissions

Rs. 50000 in Admin Fee


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

With a taboo topic like this, we have realized that even big brands shy away from taking a stand. And that has also been our journey, as a lot of big brands and platforms didn’t want to publicly voice their support for an issue that still needs to find its acceptance with the Government. We feel crowdfunding is the only way forward for us.

Why should you believe me and why should you fund this project?

Well for one, the film is already shot and only needs a little bit of more work to be complete. The film would be ready within a fortnight of getting the funds. And as sincere filmmakers and actors, who have considerable standing in the market, running away with the money is not even an option. Especially after putting in so much from our own pockets. We only wish to sincerely release the film and take it to places as a collective work of art.

You concept seems interesting and it is essential to talk about these issues as they are prevailing in the society and lots of lives are getting affected. Your cinema will act as spark to ignite awareness about equal right and freedom to all, whether from the LGBTQA+ community or not.

Dear Gaurav, Wishing you and Meghana super success for not just this film but all your endeavours. In all these years that I have known you (it has been more than a decade now), I have always admired your talent but more than that it is your sheer grit and persistence that is remarkable. Those of us who were fortunate to know you well have seen you overcome several personal and professional setbacks and you are on your way to emerge a winner, not to say that you already aren't. There are much larger milestones that you are born to achieve. Best wishes always, Anshul
