How did Madhuri Dixit-Nene become the new gay icon?

Begum Para of Dedh Ishqiya has been very well appreciated by the LGBT community. Read on to know why…

Madhuri Dixit-Nene’s has supposedly become the new icon for the LGBT community. A special screening was held for the LGBT community of her latest film Dedh Ishqiya. The queer content of Abhishek Chaubey’s film was the reason for organising this special screening.

Talking to a leading daily Vivek Anand of Humsafar, a city-based organisation, which promotes LGBT rights said, “Dedh Ishqiya has acquired iconic proportions and Madhuri’s character as Begum Para is the new diva of the LGBT community.”

The producers organised the screening of the film, which also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi and Huma Qureshi, for the community as part of the ongoing month-long event that will culminate in an annual pride walk. The event would be a significant event in the wake of the Supreme Court judgement.

After Dedh Ishqiya the Dhak dhak girl is coming up with Gulaab Gang which talks about empowering the women. So will she support the LGBT community after winning this new gay icon status?
