Actor Celina Jaitley is returning to Bollywood with a short film tiled Season’s Greetings: A Tribute to Rituparno Ghosh, based on recently abolished Section 377. While talking to Hindustan Times, the actress spoke extensively about her upcoming short film, and also revealed an incident where she had been through a ‘traumatic relationship’.


Speaking to the leading daily, the actress first spoke about the subject and later about her previous relationship. She said, “The film deals with every aspect of the LGBTQIA. A famous gay Kolkata based make-up artiste was a mother figure to me in my struggling days as a model there. I closely observed his trials and tribulations as a gay middleaged man, then as a senior citizen. Incidentally, at the same time I was in a traumatic relationship with a closeted gay man.

At 16, you think prayers and shamans can fix this. Their untimely deaths a few years later made me realise that everyone has the right to life and choose whom they can have a relationship with. I had to do something about it. After 12 years as an activist, the United Nations appointed me as a goodwill ambassador for the same cause and today we have come full circle after abolishment of Section 377.”

Further, the Apna Sapna Money Money actress revealed what kept her busy these years, she told the leading daily, “This sabbatical was one of the best things I have done in my life. Career-wise it was never goodbye, it was a sabbatical during which I was able to turn producer and also work on my talents as a recording artist. I performed with Sting on Broadway… I began work on my forthcoming books and truly found peace in pursuing completely different aspects of myself. Motherhood and all of the wonderful things have been such a refreshing blessing to someone who monotonously worked since the age of 15.”
