Bollywood films that portray the LGBTQ community with compassion

Sep 07, 2018 12:46 IST

A look at Bollywood films that portrayed the LGBTQ community with compassion ‘Margarita With A Straw’ shows Kalki Koechlin’s character suffering from cerebral palsy who eventually figures out her sexuality. ‘Fire’ may have got released ahead of its time but showed the emotional reality of two women, who find solace in each other, after being neglected by their husbands. ‘Bombay Talkies’ shows Rani Mukerjee feeling heart broken as her husbands character Randep Hooda discovers his physical intimacy with another man. ‘Kapoor & Sons’ shows Fawad Khan’s character battle with himself and his family to come out of the closet with a lot of compassion. ‘Padmavaat’ shows Ranveer Singh play the role of Alauddin Khilji with perfection. Jim Sarbh’s role as Khilji’s slave Kafur, is beautifully showcased as a helpless lover.
