Ek Naya Rishta (lit. A new relation) is a 1988 Indian drama film.[1][2] The film was produced and directed by Vinod Pande, starring Rekha, Raj Kiran, Mazhar Khan and Om Shivpuri among others. The film is a modern take on relationships, business, independence, interdependence and the institution of marriage and hints at indirect surrogacy. It was perhaps the first movie of its time to talk about surrogacy. It also highlighted how society forces the helpless to fall prey to the murky business of prostitution and lesbianism. Many scenes in the 2001 hit Chori Chori Chupke Chupke are a direct lift off from Ek Naya Rishta and the story of Chori Chori Chupke Chupke in essence is taken from this movie.
