“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.

“All these days, my friend was afraid about how his circumstance is going to accept him and slowly he is opening up. It’s not only about him, so many boys and girls are reluctant about not being proud at least but about opening up to others about their emotions” the LKG actor said.
