Homosexuality should be addressed

Mumbai: Bollywood actor Zareen Khan, who portrays a homosexual character in the upcoming film Hum Bhi Akele Tum Bhi Akele, feels cinema should be used to normalise the elder generation to start a conversation on homosexuality.

"After hearing the narration I realised how significant the story is, to come out in films. Although the court has decriminalised Article 377, society and our parents' generation is certainly not okay with the reality that homosexuals are as normal as all of us. It is just another sexual orientation and nothing more," said Zareen.

Citing a real-life example, Zareen said: "I have a friend who is a homosexual and his family is trying to get him married to a girl. He still is unable to tell his parents because they are orthodox. This is a problem many people of the LGBTQ+ community face, so I think we should use the power of cinema to implant the thought of normalcy in people's mind, especially people who are not well-versed with the topic of homosexuality."

The story of the film revolves around two homosexual characters played by Zareen and Anshuman Jha.
