Labelling things is an issue. Being gay is a non-issue: Sonam Kapoor

Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga might be about same sex relationships, but actor Sonam Kapoor believes it should be seen as a coming-of-age romance without any labels. “Labelling things is an issue. Being gay is a non-issue. Some of the people in films and fashion are gay and there is nothing but pride,” Sonam said. The actor also said that, “Judgment in our country comes in various forms, we always are conformed to thinking or be in a certain way. That is very cruel. Each and every person has a choice of who they want to be.” source: HT
