The Supreme Court of India has come up with good news for the LGBTQ community. It said that the four-year-old judgement that effectively criminalized even consensual sexual intercourse between same sex couples would be reviewed. While getting respite might still be a long way, the ray of hope that the decision evoked is too bright to ignore.
Several web series and short films have depicted the plight of LGBTQ couples in India. One of them, Amit Khanna’s All About Section 377 was an award winner in various technical and creative categories all around the world. In an exclusive conversation, Amit Khanna spoke his thoughts about the latest Supreme Court decision. He said,
“Love is a beautiful emotion which must be expressed freely and not be restricted based on gender. It’s great to know this redundant article 377 is being considered to be abolished. I feel it will be a great step towards freedom liberty and protection of every person’s privacy.”
Meanwhile, a sequel to the series All About Section 377 is set to release soon. Titled All About Section 377 Season 2, it stars Gulshan Nain, Ankit Bhatia, Mustafa Shaikh, Gunjan Malhotra, Yash Yogi and Amit Khanna.
Asmiy Entertainment presents the sequel, a Phillum Makers and Dancing Shiva production. Dhaval Patel, Ritesh Kudecha, Anuya Chauhan Kudecha, Shyam Patel and Amit Khanna produce the sequel.
