Sonam Kapoor is reportedly playing a homosexual character in her upcoming film, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga (ELKDTAL), which also stars Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla and Rajkummar Rao. Same sex love is yet to be explored to its full potential in Bollywood, but mainstream filmmakers are now gradually embracing the topic. Kapoor & Sons, Padmaavat, Aligarh and Bombay Talkies, for instance, are some of films that depicted the LGBTQ theme in the recent past.
With ELKDTAL, we hope Bollywood progresses further and loses some of the social stigma associated with homosexuality. A lot of curiosity has arisen regarding Sonam’s character and as per an exclusive report in BL, Regina Cassandra will be playing Kuku, her on screen partner.
