Actor Prateik Chaudhary got a better understanding of what the LGBTQAI+ community stands for during his mid-20s. The actor is glad that Indian society has evolved in the last few years and people are far more open about their sexuality now than they were before.
“I feel that there is nothing to hide about one’s sexuality. It’s not a crime to be gay or lesbian. It’s perfectly normal like those who are straight. There’s nothing different. God has created us all. We all are special in our way. So yes, I am really happy that after so many years mindset of people is changing. Many are coming out and can live their life without any fear,” says the Paramavatar Shri Krishna actor, who admits having many friends from the industry who are open about their sexuality, adding that he is proud of them.
Actor Prateik Chaudhary on same-sex marriage:
Though Article 377 has been decriminalized in 2018, same-sex marriage is still illegal in India. Expressing his views, Prateik adds, “I don’t know why it is still illegal, and believe there must be some reason behind it. I have full faith in our judicial system. When two adults are mature enough to make their own decisions, they have the right to choose their partner and exchange vows. And it does not matter whether they are straight or those a part of the LGBT community.”
Giving his message to people belonging to the Pride community and fans, the actor says, “Don’t think much about what other people think about you. Even if you don’t do much, people will judge you anyway. You should do what you want to do, you feel like doing, because if you are not happy from within, then you can’t make others happy. Live for yourself, and your family and friends who love and trust you. Rest, I don’t think you should care about anyone else. Ek hi zindagi hai, khush raho.”
