As Friedrich Nietzsche says, “Art is the proper task of life”, film is an expression which is pregnant with so many arts within it. When in the case of mainstream cinema, there are remarkably very less number of films with LGBTQ narratives. Though Indian cinema is more than a 100 years old, homosexuality and queer community in the films and television has not received much positive light on it. Hence, this research paper aims to find out the representation of the queer community especially how homosexuality has been approached over last two years through mainstream Hindi cinema. The objectives include the analysing of characterization and their coming out of closets, how homophobia and the stigma attached to it is addressed, the degree of societal acceptance, and the human rights perspectives within.
