In a landmark judgement, the Supreme Court on Thursday decriminalised homosexuality and diluted Section 377. Welcoming the decision, the Twitter was flooded with reactions from the Bollywood stars who hailed the apex court.
Hailing the judgement, actor Sonam Kapoor wrote on Twitter,”tears of joy for the lgbtqi community. One day there won’t be any labels and we will all live in utopia.” (sic)
This isn’t the first time, the actress has supported gay rights. Speaking at the Kashish International Queer Film Festival, the actress said that most of her followers were women, gay men or lesbians.
“They love me and I love them,” she said.
She added that hopefully soon KASHISH will be just a film festival and there would be no labels needed.
