Directed by Hansal Mehta, Aligarh is based on the real life incident of Dr Srinivas Ramchandra Siras, an AMU academician, who was suspended from his job because of his sexual orientation. “As our society is also growing and evolving, the way we are, as a nation, as a country, its very courageous for Hansal sir to make this film,” the Queen actress said about the film.

The actress even said that the film is “so beautiful, it’s like a poem and I can go on talking about it”. “It’s beyond any issues, beyond homosexuality. But sometimes the film turns out to be so strong that we actually forget how creatively and artistically it is made. So I hope Hansal sir gets his due, because it says something very strong and important. I hope we do not forget how fine an artist he is,” she added.
