Huma Qureshi turns poetic for LGBT
Tuesday, June 24, 2014 • Hindi Comments

Buzz is that ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ beauty Huma Qureshi has lent her voice to a spread social awareness for the LGBT community. The actress is going to be part of a poetic campaign called "Ishq ki Ijaazat" which will launch online and spread awareness.

However, our sources claim that the initiate is not an angry statement against the Article 377. But a dialogue which implores, nudges and converses. By gracefully agreeing to be a part of this project, Huma said to have done wonderful justice to the words with her impeccable diction and assertive yet tender voice. Confirming the news Huma added, "I believe everyone should have the freedom to choose for themselves."

Interestingly, "Ishq ki Ijaazat" is a film poem by Satyanshu and Devanshu Singh - the brother duo who wrote the poetry in Vikramaditya Motwane's 'Udaan' (2010). "Ishq ki Ijaazat" is a poetic campaign to urge people to bring love out in the open. It is not about sexual preferences. It is about a basic right that every human being deserves - to be able to love with dignity, and not prejudice.

On the movie front, Huma currently has Sriram Raghvan's next project, ‘Badlapur’, which also stars Varun Dhawan and Yami Gautam in lead.
