National Award-winning film editor Apurva Asrani, known for writing scripts of 'Aligarh' and 'Simran', shared a picture with boyfriend Siddhant Pillai after Supreme Court's verdict on Section 377. He captioned it, "11 years of togetherness. We loved openly even when the law tried to stop us. The only difference now is that we can share our love with the world.
"After the Section 377 verdict, Asrani told a leading daily, "For too long, we have lived in a democracy that is unevenly applied. Because of what I do with another consenting adult in my private space, the law has been able to call me a criminal. So, my heterosexual brother, for example, has different rights from me. He can fall in love with a person of his choice get into a recognised union with her and then choose to adopt a child. I do not have any of those rights."
