“When you are talking about progressive values, would you do a “Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan” where Ayushmann Khuranna played a gay character?” asked Baradwaj Rangan to RJ Balaji to which the latter replied saying that he loves to.

“I haven’t seen Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan” but I have watched the first series of Modern Love which shows about a gay couple trying to have a child through surrogacy. While watching the series, I felt so happy and had tears out of happiness as well. It became my favorite series and I am willing to show such aspect of gay relationship ” RJ Balaji elaborated.

“I have friends who are same sex orientation. They are my best friends. They have so much value. For years and years, a taboo has been created around them, referring to them by making wierd noises. I stand for this friend whenever he needs and no one has the value he shows” Balaji further said.
