The United Nations says a Bollywood-inspired music video promoting equal rights for gays, lesbians, transgender people and bisexuals, has been watched by more than one million people online – and millions more on tv – since its release on April 30th.
The 2 1/2-minute video stars Indian actress Celina Jaitly, who was named a U.N. Equality Champion – by Human Rights chief Navi Pillay last year – for her support for LGBT rights.
Jaitly says the video aims to promote the difficult conversations that promote change, “in a wonderful light-hearted way…through the universal language of music.”
