In one of India’s most historic judgements, the Supreme Court of India decriminalised homosexuality last year. And since then, celebrities, of and outside of the film fraternity have been voicing their support towards the LGBTQ+ community, including them in the normal, as they utilise their status and power as a step towards inclusivity.
Early this year, we had Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga which spoke about homosexual relationships between two women and now, Ayushmann Khurrana’s Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan will also revolve around the same topic.
In an interview with a leading daily, when Deepika Padukone was questioned on the same, she expressed her views and said, “It feels strange to me that we even have to ask that question and the fact that we need to address it. We should not even allow ourselves to even be in this place where somebody else dictates how and with whom you want to spend the rest of your lives.”
On the work front, after her sabbatical post the release of Padmaavat, Deepika Padukone will be seen in Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak, which releases on January 10, 2020.
