MUMBAI: Bollywood actress Bhumi Pednekar said that she wants everyone in India to watch 'Badhaai Do' with their families.
In that, she will be playing a lesbian woman named Suman who gets married to a gay man played by Rajkumar Rao.
She said that her own family was open to the idea of love irrespective for gender.
“Badhaai Do is definitely a film that needs to be watched together with your family. It’s about celebrating love and acceptance. We have taken the route of humour to talk about something that our society is uncomfortable addressing," she said to the media.
She also called out discrimination of people on the basis of gender and sexual orientation.
Actress Chum Darang from Arunachal Pradesh plays her on-screen girlfriend. 'Badhai Do' is directed by Harshvardhan Kulkarni.
