When Apurva Asrani met Elliot Page – “We talked for a couple of hours about Aligarh”

Juno actress Elliot Page has taken the world by storm by coming out as transgender. In every sense, he has turned the Page. Writer-director Apurva Asrani met Elliot and remembered those days.

Apurva recalls, “I met Elliot Page in May 2016. He and his best friend Ian Daniel were in Mumbai shooting for a series and we were meeting prominent LGBTQ citizens. They came home with their camera crew for my pet dog Doobie’s 9th birthday.”

Elliot had a long conversation with Apurva. “We talked for a couple of hours about Aligarh (which I had scripted) and the state of India’s LGBTQ. I found Elliot to be very concerned for us under the archaic Article 377 which was still in force back then.”

Elliot appreciated Apurva being an uncloseted homosexual in spite of 377. “He was very happy to see my partner and me celebrating the day with our parents and was trying to understand how we could be so open when the law was against us.”

Apurva was impressed by Elliot’s nature. “What struck me was how down-to-earth and simple Elliot was. He didn’t demand special attention, dressed simply, and talked to everyone sincerely. He even brought presents for my pet Doobie.”

Apurva Asrani has never been afraid to express himself on the subject of sexual orientation.
