Writer Apurva Asrani publically shares a picture with his love Siddhant Pillai

With the Supreme Court decriminalizing homosexuality, September 6 came as a watershed day for millions of LGBTQ Indians. Four days after the verdict, Apurva Asrani, the screen-writer of films such as 'Aligarh', 'Shahid' and 'Simran', took to Facebook to make public his 11-year-old relationship with his partner Siddhant Pillai.

Changing his profile photo on Facebook to one that has Apurva and Siddhant in front of the Eiffel Tower, the writer posted, “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."

"Heterosexual couples get respect by default. Even we want that," said Apurva.
