Section 377 has been the most talked about topic off late and finally the hearing is going to take place tomorrow. It is a big day for the supporters of section 377. Just while we are a day away from the verdict, Director Amit Khanna, who had directed ‘Tutiya Dil’ and ‘Badmashiyaan’, has served the starter of his menu which is a whole new set of web series called ‘All About Section 377’. The promo is out now and it reflects the joys and sorrows of people who have different sexual preferences and how they cope up with the society.
‘All About section 377’ is written and directed by Amit Khanna who is also an ace photographer who has shot the who’s who of the television industry. The web series consists of eight episodes which is produced by Weirdoze and the Creative Gypsy. It features Gulshan Nain who played the lead in Channel V’s Show ‘Friends Conditions Apply’, Ankit Bhatia, Mustafa Shaikh and Amit Khanna himself as well who marks his acting debut.
The promo is catchy, and definitely leaves a strong message by planting a serious thought in the minds of every individual. The promo will definitely hit hard to a lot of Homophobic people and their phobia just might come to an end.
Amit Khanna who has really put his heart and soul in this series said, “The existence of Section 377 itself is frightening. How does someone else get to decide how, when and who, one should love? Basically the right of ‘freedom of choice’ isn’t legal anymore…”
Apart from the concept of the series, what is interesting to see is that celebrities like Niranjan Iyengar, Iris Maity and Suzanna Mukherjee will be seen in cameos.

About ‘All About Section 377’
As we all know that a law called ‘Section 377’ exists which prevents an individual from making another individual of the same sex their life partner. But for once did the lawmakers think what a ‘gay’ individual goes through in his/ her life in exploring themselves, their desires and feelings for someone and one else? No! Homophobia is a deadly disease that needs to be stopped this moment so that the society becomes a more peaceful place to love in. In a little humourous and a little emotional manner, this web series attempts to cover it all and open everyone’s eyes to the reality of a gay person’s life.
What happens when a typical homophobic man has to share a room with a gay man with his alleged lover dropping into the apartment most of the time? Wait and find out what happens…
