11. Kapoor & Sons
The film Kapoor & Sons, starring Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra, and Fawad Khan, tells the narrative of a befuddled family. The film depicts the relationship between two brothers, Arjun and Rahul, deteriorating due to a girl. When it is revealed that Rahul Kapoor is gay, the conflict comes to an end.
12. Margarita With A Straw
While Shonali Bose’s film ‘Margarita With A Straw’ (2014) was about a feisty girl who lives life to the fullest despite being born with a disability, the film also focused on a same-sex story of love, providing Indian viewers with a taste of how love and sex are for people born with a disability.
Tarn Mansukhani’s film ‘Dostana,’ released in 2008, was a tongue-in-cheek look at homosexuality. The plot of the film revolved around two men who pretended to be gay in order to share an apartment with a girl and eventually fell in love with her. For the way the characters were depicted in the film, many people accused filmmaker Karan Johar of demeaning the LGBTQ community.
