Actor, model and equal rights activist Sushant Divgikar while talking to Firstpost said, "Over the years, the mindset has changed and it's time indeed that Section 377 was scrapped. It's not even an Indian construct! It is a Victorian relic and reflects a colonial mindset. Section 377 should have left when the British left our country, it should have ended with the end of their oppressive and inhumane rule."
Actress Swara Bhasker who has always been vocal about her opinions, Tweeted saying, "Congratulations to all the activists and petitioners on #SupremeCourt judgement scrapping #Section377. Your perseverance just made #India a freer place for everyone! #LoveIsLove #Pride #377Verdict #377Scrapped. Three cheers for the #SupremeCourt." - (sic)
