One More Pride Post! That I Forgot to Put Up Yesterday: Queer Images

I reposted everything yesterday, I thought, (once again, my Pride themed fanfic is sad and ignored.  WHY???  I give you Arjun and Shahrukh making out, isn’t that what everyone wants?). And then I just found this post hiding in the archives, so here is a late breaking addition.

Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar are just the cutest couple EVER!!!!  And I would apologize for outing them, but come on.  I don’t think they are exactly hiding.  Unless they really are just best friends for decades who live together and do everything together and hold hands all the time?

And they seem so happy together!

Switching genders, and from reality to fiction, we all know that John and Abhishek’s characters got past their issues and got together about 6 months after Dostana was over, right?

Not that I think they were closeted or anything, but I think they were both probably a little bi (aren’t we all?) and it’s pretty clear that kiss unlocked something.

And that something was missing, since they never wanted to settle down or get serious with any woman, but had no problem building a life with each other.

Going back to reality, I know I don’t usually do videos in these posts, but if you haven’t seen this one, it is an absolute MUST!  Two celebrities who are officially not gay (or at least, officially in love with and committed to their wives) but also comfortable being casual about their sexuality in public, finally meet and give the world the image it so craves.

And over to the ladies for a moment.  Personally, my against the grain reading of KKHH is that Kajol is a stand in for Karan/a shy young gay man and it is the SRKajol romance that codes as queer (best friend yaar).  But there is a strong contingent which sees the Kajol-Rani situation as a butch-femme kind of thing.  Which works, I suppose, if you remove Shahrukh from the picture below entirely.  And forget they are cousins in real life.

Speaking of common against the grain readings, shower scene in Silsila anyone?  Where they actually have a blink and you’ll miss it “drop the soap” joke?

Back to real life!  Zoya and Reema are the younger generation, but we also have the elegant older generation to look to.  Rekha and Farzana, together for over two decades.  Very classy looking couple.

Even back in the day when they first got together.

One more real life example!  Although they are just friends, not a couple (although my fanfic suggests more!).  I do love the whole Karan-Manish vibe though.

Speaking of people Karan could be dating but isn’t, I also kind of like his vibe with Ayan Mukherjee.  But Ayan, unfortunately, seems to have some kind of something with Ranbir Kapoor right now (unrequited crush, I am guessing).  So that’s not happening (again, unless you read my fanfic)

(So cute together!)

Let’s see, have I done everything/everybody?  I think so!  It’s time for the grand finale.  One of the all time greatest and sexiest jodis in Indian film.  Saif and Akshay!!!!  So cute together!

With that fun kind of opposites attract fighting all the time sort of chemistry.

But it’s also way sexy.

    I am continually amazed that Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar just go on and on and there’s no drama or outrage. Or maybe there is and I’m missing it? Maybe it’s sort of like Liberace?

    Anyway, it’s great and they seem to be a great model for others.


    • I think it’s just that they are director/writers so no one cares enough to notice. But yeah, it’s great! They could so easily hide away, and instead they are out there talking about being “best friends” for 20 years and holding hands in public and just being happy together.

  2. I think I’ve never fully realized that Saif and Akshay were so charming together and that they have such a long filmography together. I’m so used to seeing Saif play second fiddle to all of the male stars, but I could only think of Tashan and that awful Sabrina remake, Yeh Dillagi (though I think I should give that a rewatch someday).


    • Yeh Dillagi is pretty fun, mostly because you get to watch Kajol twist people around her little finger. And Akshay makes a very hot Humphrey Bogart.

      Main Khiladi Tu Anari is my favorite Sakshay movie, Saif playing a naive movie star who follows around Akshay, Tough Cop, to learn a role. And then of course they stumble into a real conspiracy and have to work together. But it includes a moment when Saif leans forward and gently strokes Akshay’s knee and says “Say please, with love”. Very hot.

      Their sons are friends now, there was some video that came out on social media a few years back of the two of them goofing around and everyone got excited about a new era of Sakshay.
