will be about wife-swapping.
The producer plans to cast actress Paoli Dam in the feature Love Games
, after she made her debut in his erotic thriller.
He told The Times of India
: "Why do you say wife-swapping is taboo? You'd be surprised to know how many urban couples indulge in it. It's prevalent, almost rampant in the big cities.
"Go on the internet. There are websites devoted to wife-swapping. That's what we've come to. I want to explore the psychology of wife-swapping.
"How does a man tell his wife to go and sleep with his friend and how does the wife give consent to her husband's sexual tryst with another woman? More importantly, how do the husband and wife look at each other in the eye the morning after? These are questions that haunt me."
Bhatt added: "Paoli [Dam] has the courage to go beyond her body on camera. That's where I want to go with Love Games
Dam recently said that she considered the controversial Hate Story to be a woman-oriented film
director Vikram Agnihotri claimed that the film will change erotic cinema in India
