5 Lesbian Bollywood Movies That Are Banned In India

Updated on 9 December, 2020 at 11:52 am By

It is just a couple of days ago that the Supreme Court of India has abolished Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code which criminalized homosexuality. The landmark verdict has, in fact, led to a wave of celebration. While the celebration of the victory of love continues across the country, it is also important, especially at this historic moment, to celebrate the freedom of making homosexual or lesbian-oriented movies.

Now that the law has been decriminalized, we hope many more such movies will come up in the days to come. But before that, let’s take a look at five lesbian Bollywood movies that are banned in India.

 

1. Unfreedom

 

Unfreedom is a lesbian drama which is banned in India. It is said that while appearing for censorship, the censor board suggests some cuts, but the film director, Raj Amit Kumar, refused to remove any scene from the movie. So he released the movie in North America in 2015. The film stars Victor Banerjee, Adil Hussain, and Preeti Gupta.
