During filming in India, the name of the project was not revealed to government officials who would have denied the petition to film in India had it been called “Kama Sutra.” Instead, it was called “Maya & Tara.” Since government officials made many periodic visits to the set to ensure proper Indian film etiquette, the cast had to improvise fake scenes which avoided the nudity and sexuality central to the story. Upon completion, authorities screened the film and it was subsequently banned in India because of the erotic scenes that contained heterosexual as well as homosexual elements (the lesbianism was depicted in an explicit scene, whereas the male homosexuality was more implied.
