Bollywood wants to bring LGBTQ narratives to the mainstream

Hansal Mehta in his 2016 film 'Aligarh' had depicted the story of the AMU professor, which was played by Manoj Bajpayee, which left an impression, and the film was awarded at several international film festivals. 'Aligarh' is considered to be one of the most mature portrayals of LGBTQ characters in Hindi cinema. In the last few years, Bollywood has been criticised for caricaturish portrayal of the community. 'Angry Indian Goddess' and 'K apoor & Sons' have attempted to show LGBTQ narratives in an evolved manner. 'My Brother...Nikhil', directed by Onir is considered an important film in the context of LGBTQ narratives. Bollywood’s score card hasn’t been great as far as LGBTQ characters are considered, but filmmakers and actors say that the 377 verdict has given them hope that LGBTQ characters will be brought to the mainstream, without caricaturisation.
