. #EkLadkiKoDekhaTohAisaLaga : ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Strong, relevant social topics touched in a beautiful way. A simple, sweet, sensitive & an intimate New-age story. I walked out with tears, will you? Watch it for yourself. Dil se dekhna, dimaag se nai, as @RajkummarRao says. @sonamakapoor

Same-sex relationships continue to be a taboo in India, despite the Supreme Court scrapping Section 377 that criminalised “unnatural intercourse”. Produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the film also stars Juhi Chawla in an important role.
