Know how Bollywood celebs reacted after watching ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’
A Bollywood movie about homosexuality where a family is accepting their daughter to be a lesbian. The movie ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ hit the theatres on Friday by breaking the sigma in cinema and in our socially conservative India.
The film comes after the country passed a green signal to homosexuality in September, with celebrations among the India’s LGBT community.
It is the first mainstream Indian film to show parents dealing with their daughter’s relationship with a same-sex. Bollywood is going gaga over the movie release.
A prominent LGBT activist Harish Iyer wrote on his twitter account, “I can’t believe what I saw”. He further added “while people were waiting for a right time, day and age, VVC films actually made a film like that”.
“Looks like such a beautiful and heartfelt film….more power for pushing boundaries”, Karan Johar twitted.
While everyone are taking their enjoyment to their twitter account, Farah Khan also twitted, “such a difficult subject handled with so much dignity and restrain….. Wishing all the best to its vast and crew!! It’s an important film first of its kind…”
The promoters of the film also kept tight lipped, though they gave hints through the official hashtag #SetLoveFree.
