‘LGBT community won’t be free till section 377 exists’

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

Actress Celina Jaitley spoke of how section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) is a big challenge for millions of people, who belong to the LGBT community. The ambassador of 'Kashish Mumbai International Queer Film Festival', India's only mainstream LGBT film fest, said as long as section 377 of the IPC, which criminalises homosexuality, exists, people of the community won't feel free.

"The way we started, there is a huge difference. Be it the sponsors, media, people or even Bollywood. But it's our biggest challenge. I don't think millions of Indians, who belong to the community, will truly be free ."

The 34 year old actress was speaking at the closing ceremony of the fest, which showcased old and new LGBT films and the ''Apna Sapna Money Money'' actress feels such movies are important in influencing generations. "We have received so many national and international entries this time, which is a good news. Because films not only influence the society, but also the coming generations."

Celina, who was last seen on the big screen in "Will You Marry Me?", is keen to return to films with her own home production. "I had a long sabbatical of nearly four years. I am looking forward to my home production and a lot more comedy films in the future."
