Actress-turned-director Pooja Bhatt says she is tired of watching caricature of gay people in Hindi movies.

"Maybe some day we will portray gay people in Hindi films with the dignity they deserve. Tired of seeing them only used to evoke laughter," tweeted Pooja.

Even her half-sister Alia's debut "Student of The Year" (SOTY), features Rishi Kapoor as a gay, with humorous overtones. His look is also homosexual - he is seen in pink shirts and lilac ties, which are typically a fun way of looking at those without a straight sexual orientation.

    I loved Sameer Soni's character in Fashion, perhaps Pooja should watch that movie, things are changing slowly and surely but one can't expect a KJo movie to not be OTT.

    unfortunately or not where I come from(North America) most gay men act femininely and have a certain air about them ... i don't blame show biz for stereotyping homosexuals ... thats how most of em are ...

    I guess most people still have the notion of thinking gay men have to act girly.. No such thing. Gay men just like men, not women.
