Indian Slashfic: Yes, it exists

This is kind of a repost, I put this up as one of my first fanvid posts ever.  But the original post was kind of short, just the videos.  So here it is, expanded and perfected, in honor of Pride.

So, I was just talking with a friend about slashfic, and she didn’t realize that it exists in Bollywood too!  There are several, gifted, fanvid makers who are serving this void!  Some of my favorites are below.

This is from Magpie08AA5, who does all slashfic from a whole variety of fandoms.  Hindi film, but also Jerry Lee Lewis and Dean Martin, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker, and, of course, Batman and Robin.  Her films really stand out for me because it isn’t just about the titillation of a forbidden romance, she builds up these real emotions and relationships between them!  Like in this, where I fully believe that Sanjay is in love with Ajay, but unable to commit to him in public.

 

Or this, which is more about a youthful innocent pure love which has been corrupted in the years since.

 

Or this, which I always read as Shahrukh taunting and seducing Arjun.  So, not so much about a love connection here, as a love-hate-sexual tension connection.

 

She goes old school too, pulling out the black and white to give us the wonderful romantic pairing of Ashok Kumar and Shashi Kapoor.

 

There’s also the delightful moment when the stars themselves craft some slashfic for us.  For instance, this sketch from the 2004 FilmFare awards (go a minute and a half into the video).

 

Or, I’m not sure what is happening exactly in this song from Gunday, but I am definitely getting a “more than friends” vibe here.

And then my all time favorite slashfic video, from vrxly.  It is the only slashfic fanvid she has posted, but it is enough to forever place her in the fanvid hall of fame so far as I am concerned.  Like if Aditya Chopra had only made DDLJ.

    • Apparently, Mehbooba (2008). Which I vaguely know about as one of those movies that took forever to be released for some reason. You can see, those clothes are not 2008 clothes. India may be a little behind, but not that far.

  2. Hi–love your fanvid posts–so much procrastination material (it is in my name after all). I’m looking for a post I think you did with a slash video of Anil Kapoor and SRK. Am I remembering that right?

    • It’s probably this one:

      I don’t remember what post I put it in (maybe a birthday post for someone?). Anyway, it’s another one by Magpie08AA5, she is just the best at slashfic. There’s a fair number of her videos I haven’t even posted yet!

      (the movie is Trimurti, which is very slashfic friendly, seeing as it is all about brotherly love)

      • Yes! That’s the one! I couldn’t find it on YouTube. Thanks for posting it again. So much fun, and so much pretty. I need to watch Trimurti still–or any Anil Kapoor movie besides Dil Dhadakane Do.

        • Trimurti isn’t the greatest. If you are looking for vintage Anil, check out Ram-Lakhan or Tezaab. Mr. India is probably the best movie he’s been in, but it’s also so much more than just an “Anil Kapoor” movie! If you can find a copy, you are in for a real treat.
          Oh! And 1942: A Love Story! Gorgeous Gorgeous Manisha Koirala picking Anil Kapoor is a little unbelievable, but the soundtrack is amazing, RD Burman’s last score.
