Aditya Singh @AdityaReviver
"After watching #EkLadkiKoDekhaTohAisaLaga I can easily say that homosexuality is no longer a taboo in our country now. Never expected that this movie will be based on such an intense topic. Great work by @AnilKapoor @RajkummarRao @sonamakapoor.
Nice outing with brothers.."

"Saw it last night in a packed theater in New York. It was a beautiful and uplifting film love story (without having to resort to the cringe-worthy stereotyping in Dostana). Thank you! #EkLadkiKoDekhaTohAisaLaga."
