Mumbai: Screenwriter Apurva Asrani recently made a shocking revelation about how he and partner Sidharth were thrown out of their rented accommodations by landlords.
He said, “People have thrown us out of the apartments after realising that we are together. We don’t want to worry about these things, so we bought a place. Sid and I are family and have the blessings of our families.”
Recently Apurva took to Twitter and shared the news of his new house to his fans. He wrote, “For 13 years, we pretended to be cousins so that we could rent a home together. We were told ‘keep curtains drawn so neighbours don’t know ‘what’ you are’. We recently bought our own home. Now we voluntarily tell neighbours we are partners 💕. It’s time LGBTQ families are normalised too.”
