Juno actress Elliot Page has taken the world by storm by coming out as transgender. In every sense, he has turned the Page. Writer-director Apurva Asrani met Elliot and remembered those days.
Apurva recalls, “I met Elliot Page in May 2016. He and his best friend Ian Daniel were in Mumbai shooting for a series and we were meeting prominent LGBTQ citizens. They came home with their camera crew for my pet dog Doobie's 9th birthday.”
Elliot had a long conversation with Apurva. “We talked for a couple of hours about Aligarh (which I had scripted) and the state of India's LGBTQ. I found Elliot to be very concerned for us under the archaic Article 377 which was still in force back then.”
Apurva was impressed by Elliot’s nature. “What struck me was how down-to-earth and simple Elliot was. He didn't demand special attention, dressed simply, and talked to everyone sincerely. He even brought presents for my pet Doobie.”
Apurva Asrani has never been afraid to express himself on the subject of sexual orientation.
