Zareen Khan spilt the beans on the LGBTQ community

To this, she said, "The LGBTQ community is very close to my heart. Many of my friends belong to this community and I know the kind of things that they go through. Though Section 377 has been approved by our government and we have the freedom now but still, I think it will take some time for our family to accept this. The film Hum Bhi Akele, Tum Bhi Akele is a very sensitive subject which shows the struggle of the LGBTQ community but in a very fun manner."
