Bollywood personalities have spoken out against the Indian Penal Code, specifically Section 377 that makes being a part of the LGBTQ community a criminal offence. They have asked for the law to be decriminalised.
Shab movie review: Given Onir’s experience in creating interesting characters grappling with the kind of personal demons not usually seen in Bollywood, especially in his last outing I Am, Shab should have been a far more accomplished film. All these are characters, fleshed properly, could have given us a film.
Filmmaker Onir has said that his upcoming film Shab had been conceptualised 17 years ago. Talking about the film, he said: "It is about city life. It is a place where people come from small cities and towns with their own dreams. Everyone wants to achieve something."
Shab director Onir said, "This film is not about fashion industry. In this film, only one character wants to get into fashion industry. This film is about dreams and relationships. We have tried to show different backgrounds of people and how their life intersects with each other's life."
