Actress Huma Qureshi says love is not restricted to any gender, and believes it is an individual’s right to choose who they want to love.

“I’ve always believed in freedom of choice and that includes an individual’s right to choose who they want to love. I support the LGBT community because love is free and not restricted to any gender,” Huma Qureshi said in a statement to IANS.

“I’ve often spoken very strongly about civil liberties and equal rights.”

Huma also walked the ramp in support of the community at the recently concluded Lotus Make-up India Fashion Week (LMIFW) in Delhi. The fashion show brought together over 40 renowned designers including names like Manish Malhotra, Samant Chauhan and Gaurav Gupta to celebrate the power of genderless love and the Supreme Court’s decision to repeal Section 377, which criminalised homosexuality.

After doing some short films, Huma Qureshi, who hails from Delhi, came into the spotlight with Anurag Kashyap’s dark thriller “Gangs of Wasseypur – Part 2” in 2012.
