New Delhi: As India continues to celebrate the Supreme Court’s decision to decriminalise Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), everyone from activists to the common man is engulfed in the jollification.
Supporting the historical judgment, Bollywood’s ‘Bajirao’ and ‘Mastani’ Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, too joined the wagon but in a quirky way. The rumoured couple posted boomerang videos on their respective Instagram accounts, donning rainbow-coloured outfits.
While Deepika can be seen jumping around with her million-dollar smile, dressed in a short glittery shirt, the ‘Befikre’ star donned a rainbow jacket, fedora hat along with black denim and shoes.
“ONE LOVE #377verdict, ” read Singh’s caption.
A five-judge Constitution bench, headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra and also comprising Justices D Y Chandrachud, Rohinton Fali Nariman, A M Khanwilkar and Indu Malhotra, issued the verdict on a bunch of petitions filed to scrap the law.
Known as Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), the 157-year-old law used to criminalise certain sexual acts, terming them as ‘unnatural offenses’, punishable by a 10-year jail term.
