      Phulala Sugandha Maticha In Trouble! LGBTQIA+ Members File Complaint Against The Show For Homophobic Slur

      |

      In this month of Pride, people talk about the LGBTQ community and the struggle they faced to get an identity in society. After the decriminalization of Section 377, the people from the LGBTQ community are now feeling free to open up about themselves and can get married to the love of their life. However, looks like representation of the community is not yet changed on Indian television.

      Recently, Star Pravah show Phulala Sugandha Maticha showed a queer character in the show. In the episode, other characters Chandrakala and Daulatrao Jamkhedkar played by Aditi Deshpande and Prashant Choudappa can be seen teasing the queer character. They pass remarks on his mannerism and addressed him as gulabjaam (sweet) and chakram (mad) as well.
