This Sept. 11, 2018 photo shows Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan during the Toronto Film Festival in Toronto, Canada. Bachchan is cheering India’s decision to strike down a ban on consensual gay sex, calling it “a wonderful step in the right direction.” India’s Supreme Court last week reversed a colonial-era law that made gay sex punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a landmark victory for gay rights that one judge said would “pave the way for a better future.”
