Many Telugu actors are disappointed with Supreme Court's verdict on criminalising homosexuality. On Wednesday, the court has upheld IPC Section 377 that criminalises gay sex. Tollywood stars like Siddharth, Shruti Hassan, Rahul Ravindran, Lavanya, Chinmayi Sripaada and a few others have condemned the Court's judgment.
Siddharth is most active on Twitter and he often expresses his opinion on every current affair. The actor, who is shocked by the SC verdict, tweeted, "We are calling our citizens criminals for doing something that is their fundamental birth right to do & is natural. Mera Bharat kahaan? Sad. Face it. Whoever comes to power, the people will always be powerless. Some of us, all of us...the species most at risk is us."
The Telugu actor added, "My dear friends from the LGBT community, the next time anybody speaks to you about how great India is, take a selfie of you slapping them. India is a bigot nation. I pray that every person who tries to deny another person their rights gets IBS. Bigots beware. Hex hex hex!"
On her Twitter page, actress Shruti Hassan also wrote, "Second 377 its frightening how someone else decides how when and who you should love -basically freedom of choice isn't legal anymore." She added, "So marriage is a natural choice has nothing to do with society I guess :)"
Actor Rahul Ravindran tweeted, "A way of life is made illegal again. Millions were counting on sense to prevail. What this means is that thousands will go back to being..."
Actress Lavanya Tripathi tweeted, "Thr are more hidius crimes in our country than gay sex, in fact its nt even a crime, SC needs to take strict action against rape first..."
Singer Chinmayi Sripaada tweeted, "Beg your pardon Supreme Court of India, but criminalising homosexuality doesn't seem like justice upheld."
