Bollywood loves its romances but when it comes to same sex love, we still shy away from it. But hands down, this video is the best thing I have seen in a long time!

The video for DJ Nanok's new electro-single Lay You Down, starring Anushka Manchanda and Monica Dogra, turns the lens on the relationship between two women and the video has since went viral.

And no surprise that it is trending because we are just not used to seeing two women naked in bed together.

There was a time when Nandita Das and Shabana Azmi’s Fire faced protests. It’s been years since then, but I haven't noticed any progression in the mindset of the filmmakers or the Censor Board. When Amrita Arora and Isha Koppikar’s Girlfriend released, it faced the same problems.

Two women finding love in each other is still not acceptable in "Indian culture".

So, hats off to Monica Dogra and Anushka Manchanda for daring to bare in this video, which is sure to invite criticism for its portrayal of lesbian love.

The beautifully shot music video, starts with a few passionate kisses between the two women. And for the first time, it doesn’t look forced, or vulgar – infact the chemistry between the two ladies makes this a hot sequence.

They do not lip sync or speak throughout the video and the passion intensifies as they make love. They cry,they makeup, they kiss, and fall apart again – everything that happens between two people who love each other.

Anushka and Monica have had a brief acting stint so far. Anushka’s name as an actor became strong ever since she appeared in Angry Indian Goddesses while Monica Dogra made her debut with Aamir Khan production Dhobi Ghat.

And now they have given us another taste of their acting skills.
