It seems to be a trendsetting phenomena these days to have gay friends. Suddenly Bollywood's bigwigs are coming out of the closet and admitting to accepting gay relationships.

Bollywood damsel Celina Jaitley, who is a strong supporter of homosexual rights, has found a friend in the Bong beauty Bipasha Basu. "We are born with certain natural preferences which we can't deny. No one can dictate what is good or bad for a person's sexual experience. It is an individual choice,'' said Basu.

"I have many homosexual friends and I believe they should do whatever they feel is correct. We are no one to judge their prerogatives. At the end of the day, they are human beings too,'' added Bips, who is a part of a film on the same subject.

Even the film Pankh by Sudipto Chattopadhyay, which stars the dusky beauty will now face less opposition thanks to the legal step taken by the Delhi High Court today.

Speaking about the movie, Bipasha said, "The movie features a boy who goes through the trauma of gender confusion. It revolves around a child who plays a female artist and becomes very popular. But later when he grows up, he wants to be launched as a hero. In the film, we have delved more into the issue of the confused state of mind rather than homosexuality."
