Indian actor’s satirical answers to fan questions about being gay

Imran Khan, a young leading man in Bollywood, participates in a satirical video to answer questions following the re-authorization of a law in India banning gay acts.

He describes how gay people are trying to convert others, where to find the gay/straight switch and other practical advice. All in all, it is a strong criticism of fears about homosexuality in India and a rather funny way of taking on the fears.

The video comes from All India Bakchod, the same group that used humor to criticize attitudes about rape in India.
