    In a historic move, the Supreme court of India has announced its verdict on pleas challenging the validity of Section 377 in the favour of the LGBT community. The bench led by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and comprising Justices Rohinton F. Nariman, A.M. Khanwilkar, D.Y. Chandrachud and Indu Malhotra announced that homosexuality is no more a crime in India!

    A five-judge panel in the Supreme Court was unanimous in its decision to end the law known as "Section 377", which prohibits "carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal". On Twitter, several Bollywood celebrities applauded Supreme Court's decision. Here's what some of them had to say-
