The defence ministry has rejected the script of a film showing a gay soldier in the Indian Army.

National award-winning filmmaker Onir said that his script, inspired by a now two-year-old NDTV interview of a gay Major who quit the service, was "very respectful of the army" and not some "salacious story" but got rejected as it shows a homosexual soldier.
