Older women falling for younger men (and vice versa) has always been a taboo topic in Indian films. But a few filmmakers have dared to incorporate such relationships in their films. We bring you a sneak peek into the films that have dared to be different, and the men and women who have been bold enough to portray such rolesâ€¦
Dimple falls for Amol Mhatre (â€˜Leelaâ€™)
The veteran actress plays a 40-plus professor in the film who gets into a physical relationship with one of her students, Kris. The film didnâ€™t do well commercially, but did evince interest in the multiplexes. The woman returns to her husband (played by Vinod Khanna) in the end.
Dimple falls for Saif Ali Khan (Being Cyrus)
In this forthcoming film, Dimple plays a married woman (married to a Parsi played by Naseeruddin Shah) who falls in love with a much younger Saif Ali Khan.
