MUMBAI – (02-16-22) – Bollywood superstar Sonal Chauhan made headlines on Wednesday when the actor called for the LGBT community to be more represented in Bollywood, the Indian Hindi-language film industry based in Mumbai.
While the evolving portrayal of the LGBT community in Bollywood have increased in the recent past, Sonal Chauhan feels the representation is still skewed.
“Queer as well as transgender community need to be given more opportunities in the industry, so that they get a platform to showcase their talents,” said Chauhan. “By representation, I don’t mean roles where they are playing someone from LGBTQ+ community, but characters not specific to them. They should be given opportunities to play different roles, write, direct or as technicians. They need more representation, and they need to be out there at least like everyone else’s,” said chauhan.
