She wrote, “Badhaai Do, is an intimate revolution that will activate a desire of transformation in the way “LGBTQIA+” oriented films are made in India. Finally, my community has a film; wherein, two girls are not sexually objectified for being two dykes in love, and two men aren’t being called “meetha” and “chukka” for being homosexual studs. At the end of the day, it’s all about the sensitivity in “the gaze” and not only about “the gays” in LGBTQIA+ films. Appreciated the “absence” of the “male gaze” in this sensitive queer outing. The emotional, physical and psychological consequences of “lavender marriages” are intense, honorable, honest and dramatic. Add a bit of humor to this conflict and you get a light-hearted dramedy called Badhaai do.. Watch it.”

Some of the leading ladies have in the past when asked to play a lesbian. Not you! You’ve led the way! Somewhere, in some corner of rural India, You have inspired a “tomboy” to live her/his/life with integrity, honesty and bravery. Thank you, for being you.”
