Bollywood is famous for a lot of things. Right from letting us believe that every Simran will ultimately get his Raj, one can dance on the rooftop of a train and still look glamorous to how pigeons can be used as a messenger between lovebirds, Indian films take you on a different journey altogether. Having said that, it's 2019 and a few filmmakers are trying their hands on content which is untouched. Coming to the point, on October 12, 2019, the makers of Sheer Qorma unveiled the film's first poster. Starring ace artists like Swara Bhasker and Divya Dutt the flick's poster looks simple, pure and flashes a queer love story. Swara Bhasker Loses Footwear on Her Way Back from Lalbaugcha Raja Ganpati Darshan (Watch Video).
With a vintage backdrop, the poster sees the female leads, Divya Dutta and Swara Bhasker having a lovely moment. The movie also stars terrific actress Shabana Azmi as well as Surekha Sikri in key roles. Going by the poster, the movie seems to be revolving around the story of two queer woman who belong from a Muslim family and are in search of acceptance. The poster is indeed beautiful!

After the Supreme Court of India's decision to scrap Section 377, films such as this is a right move. Sheer Qorma is surely going to break many taboos and stereotypes in the society. Earlier in an official statement, the director of the film, Faraz Ansari had talked about choosing Divya and Swara to play same-sex love partners. His statement read, "Divya and Swara are two celebrated names in the industry and strong allies of the LGBTQIA+ community. It was an easy decision to approach them. In fact, when I started writing the film, I had Divya in my mind, and already saw her playing this role. The day I finished the script, I put up a status on Instagram saying I need someone to play the role, and Divya was actually the first person to call me. It was kind of bizarre that both of them were thinking on the same lines. Without even reading the script, she said she wanted to do the film."
