The sexual act that involves a dominant and a submissive partner, commonly known as BDSM, is the subject of seasoned director Vikram Bhatt’s new web series, Maaya.

The trailer of the series gives us a sneak peek into the world of bondage sexual encounters, where the submissive participant is often tied and ‘tortured’ by the dominant one.

While parallels to 50 Shades of Grey to any topic remotely BDSM is to be expected, Vikram reveals that he wanted to make a film on this subject, even before the E.L. James books were turned into movies. “I wanted to do this even before 50 Shades of Grey was made,” says Vikram. “But at that time, this platform wasn’t available. When I decided to make my own web channel, Maaya was the first series I wanted to work on. I felt that just because we have freedom on the Internet, we can’t go about making porn. So, I had certain responsibilities. Maaya is a very intense, and emotional drama.”

On launching his web channel, Vikram said, “I feel that nothing has been made for the youth like this. Television has missed the bus with the Indian youth, as they cater to the ladies. The youth of the nation is gravitating towards digital content. I thought, why can’t I make something for them on the web?”
