Dodging the question, Ranveer, who has never confirmed or denied a relationship with Deepika even as rumours have been around for some years, said: “It is a relationship of mutual admiration… I rate her very highly as an actor, and she doesn’t.”

“She says, ‘You’re just a ham’,” he quipped, adding that she is “awesome” and that “there’s a lot to learn from her as an artiste”. He acknowledged that his “Bajirao Mastani”, “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela” and “Padmaavat” co-star has helped him become a “well-rounded human being” and that he is “blessed to have her in my life”.

Ranveer was also asked if his quirky and flamboyant persona is his real self? He said it was in 2013 that something in him changed and he felt he didn’t need to try and fit in.

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people

When a baby is born in an Indian household-they invite hijra to shower the newborn with their blessings for their blessings confer fertility, prosperity, and long life on the child. But when that child grows up we teach them to avert their eyes when a group of hijras passes by, we pass on the behaviour of treating hijras as lesser humans to our children. Whenever a child raises a question related to gender identity or sexuality they are shushed down. We're taught to believe that anything "deviant" and outside of traditional cis-heteronormativity is something to be ashamed of. This mentality raises anxious, scared queer adults who're ashamed of their own identity, and adults who bully people for "queer behaviour".

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people. They worship the Hindu goddess of chastity and fertility, Bahuchara Mata. Most hijras, but not all, choose to undergo a castration ceremony known as "nirvana" in which they remove their male genitalia as an offering to their goddess. The whole community is vibrant with hundreds of people with hundreds of ways of expression, the true identity of a hijra is complex and unique to each individual. In India, hijras prefer to refer to themselves as Kinner/Kinnar as it means the mythological beings who excel at singing and dancing.
