indian celebrities -- including muslim celebrities like aamir khan, soha ali khan, imitiaz ali, malaika khan, farhan akhtar, shabana azmi, and others -- came out in support of the lgbt community by denouncing the illegalization of homosexuality in india again. 

aamir khan, one of the most popular bollywood actors, said he was disappointed with the judgment and added  that it was shameful because it felt intolerant and violation of basic human rights. 

shabana azmi, a well known actress and respected activist, said that the judgment was shocking, violated human rights, and was anti-democracy.
