Huma Qureshi has lent her voice to spread social awareness for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community. The Gangs Of Wasseypur actor is going to be part of a poetic campaign called Ishq ki Ijaazat which will be launched online. So what is this initiative all about? Are the makers trying to put forward their angst against the government’s ruling on Article 377? We wonder…

The makers clarify that the initiative is not an angry statement against Article 377, but a dialogue which implores, nudges and converses. The Ek Thi Daayan actor agreed to be a part of the project and rendered poetry effortlessly. “I believe everyone should have the freedom to choose for themselves,” Huma said. The poetic campaign is not about sexual preferences. It is about a basic right that every human being deserves to have, be able to love with dignity, and not prejudice.

The poem has been penned by brother duo Satyanshu and Devanshu Singh. The brother duo also have previously written the poetry in Vikramaditya Motwane’s Udaan.
