It has taken Bollywood a while to address a few social themes that were considered a taboo, but Hello! It is almost 2019 and it was high time to address the elephant in the room. Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga is one such film that needed to be made and what brings an immense sense of joy is that big names like Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor are ones who are bringing it to the big screen.
The trailer for the movie was released yesterday and it received a hell lot of love from the audience for its’ theme. It is one of the few mainstream Bollywood films which showcase Queer Love as it is, just how its tagline goes #LetLoveBe its time that our society finally accepts the idea of same-sex love. 2018 has been the year for the LGBTQ community with the decriminalization of Section 377, but the struggle has just begun. With Bollywood biggies like Sonam and Anil Kapoor, Rajkumar Rao and Juhi Chawla entering this spectrum of cinema, we hope that the industry keeps on making films about things that really matter.
The scriptwriter of the film, Gazal Dhaliwal identifies herself as a trans woman and is happy to give the LGBTQ community its very own version of DDLJ. She believes that everyone should have a chance at love and it should be portrayed or be spoken about as it is.

The trailer has tugged all the right strings in our hearts and we truly believe that Bollywood is progressing and so is our country. Here is to a brighter future and more acceptance and tolerance because everyone deserves a shot at love, irrespective of their gender or sexual preference.
