After the Supreme Court's verdict on LGBT earlier today, many Bollywood stars have shown their support on the decision made by Supreme Court. Among the other stars, The Khiladi, Akshay Kumar also didn't leave this chance to express his happiness. He tweeted in support of the verdict. His tweet read. '' A historic day for India! Love for all, freedom for all RIP #Section377 '' between rainbow emojis. Check out his tweet below!

 

Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code is a section of the Indian Penal Code introduced in 1861 during the British rule of India. Modelled on the Buggery Act of 1533, it criminalises sexual activities "against the order of nature", including homosexual sex. In a verdict, the Supreme Court today scrapped the controversial Section 377. The Supreme Court reversed its own decision and said Section 377 is irrational and arbitrary. "LGBT Community has same rights as of any ordinary citizen. Respect for each other's rights and others are supreme humanity. Criminalising gay sex is irrational and indefensible," said Chief Justice Dipak Misra, who headed the five-judge bench hearing the case. 

On the work front, Akshay Kumar was last seen in Gold. The patriotic movie star is known to boss any role he plays. Next, Akshay Kumar will be seen in the most awaited sci-fi adventure film titled 2.0.  Directed by S. Shankar, this sequel to 2010's Enthiran will have the Bollywood star share screen space with the biggest star there is Rajnikanth.
