Ekta Kapoor Breaks Silence on Releasing Back-to-back Same-Sex Love Stories | Wins Hearts
Ekta took to Twitter and said, “This is for everyone who has been asking me why we are releasing two same-gender love stories in a span of two months. To them, I would like to say that we do millions of opposite-sex love stories & no one asks that. That’s how marginalized and lowly represented stories of the LGBT community are.”

Her tweet further read, “Acceptance for all kinds of love and ALTernate storytelling is what we, at ALTBalaji wish to showcase with our stories! Our recent launch, #TheMarriedWoman has been loved and appreciated by all! We’re humbled with the response of the audience and critics alike on our same gender love story!”
Her tweet concluded with, “Here’s hoping, our next show, #HisStoryy also makes a place in your hearts and helps people out there who are scared To be true to themselves. We hope you will give as much love to Kunal & Preet as you gave to Astha & Peeplika. Staying closeted could be claustrophobic, in a world where accepting one’s sexuality and gender choice is a constant struggle, let’s normalize these love stories one step at a time. Thank you, India for giving us this support and acceptance in this alternative storytelling space. As our favourite dialogue from #TheMarriedWoman goes- “Love is beyond everything. It’s beyond sexuality. It’s beyond conditioning. It’s beyond gender” #LoveIsLove.”
