7 Bollywood Movies That Portrayed LGBT Community Correctly!

Movies have a very creative way of showing us the lives of society. They beautifully trick the deepest hidden lessons and lifestyles of the real world and film it as a work of fiction to teach us some beautiful lessons, you will always remember for the rest of your lives. The characters are strong and their dialogues touch your heart. The sequence of the scenes have no genre limitations. It could be family drama, fantasy, comedy, biopic, fantasy or a thriller.

Bollywood movie scripts are written very carefully. The audience’s feelings are weaved strongly with their minds. Going bold can create some real offence. But, there are few movies that had the neatest ways to make us feel normal about the society.

LGBT has created a hush in the recent years. People in India have started being normal about the whole thing. And, these movies have the most simple and decent ways of portraying it in the film!

1. Kapoor & Sons

The movie is a family drama and has had the most emotional moments. Each one of us have dropped a tear during the movie.

The starting of the film with Fawad Khan’s Role is Portrayed as the sincere eldest son in the family. He’s also a successful writer. He later meets Aliaa Bhatt and then there’s a twist.

It might look as a long a love triangle but unfortunately it’s not.

Fawad is gay and his mother is the first one to come to know about it. The movie, without stereotyping the behaviour and presentation, portrays the subtle truth of his life. 

2. Fashion 

There’s a dark world behind the world of Glamour and fame and Fashion gives us a tour of the behind-the-stage life. And, Priyanka chopra & Kangana Ranaut both performed flawlessly.

There are two friends Meghna (Priyanka Chopra) makes in the movie. Rahul Aurora (Sameer Soni) as a very talented designer and Rohit Khanna (Ashwin Mushran). 

Both of them have a role of being Gay. Rohit’s character has ways of talking and dressing that’s easy to portrait while Rahul, his character is more of a handsome, successful man because he cannot reveal his identity. 

It clearly shows how some of them are open about their identities while some have to keep it hidden because they fear judgements. 

3. Margarita with a Straw 

There’s no doubt when it comes to Kalki Koechlin’s incredible performances she has given to the movie world. She’s bold, confident and gives in her 100% for whatever she does.

Margarita With A Straw is one of her finest films ever made and written.

She has cerebral palsy and moves to New York where she unexpectedly falls in love with a woman. 

One of the most beautiful films made in the industry, Kalki Koechlin’s contribution was worth every emotion. 

4. Bombay Talkies 

A Combination of four short stories, Bombay Talkies is Karan Johar’s most unique creation.

The beautiful, sensuous Rani Mukherji plays the role of Randeep Hooda’s wife. 

The gay romance of Randeep Hooda and Saqib Saleem is hidden behind the doors. When finally Rani Mukherji discovers it, she breaks down.

The film also has a kissing scene between Randeep Hooda and Saqib Saleem.

5. Fire 

Hats off to the team who could come up with a movie like Fire Starring Nandita Das & Shabana Azmi in the year 1996.

The movie has lesbian romance shared between the two female characters.

Both the lovers find solace after being dumped by the husbands. The movie faced a lot of controversies during that year.

6. Honeymoon Travels

A Bus loaded with six couples is headed to a honeymoon destination.

One of the couples have had a very instant marriage. Madhu has recently discovered that her boyfriend had a wife and a child. Whereas, the NRI husband is a homosexual who is forced by his parents to marry a girl. 

7. Padmaavat 

Since the first trailer released, Padmaavat has taken the entire nation by surprise. And, nothing surprises us more than the fact, that it falls under Bollywood’s LGBT Category.

Ranveer Singh who plays the role of Sultan Allaudin Khilji is a bisexual. 

There’s an entire song dedicated from his lover to him in the entire film that has crossed a million views.
