Janhvi Kapoor wears a t-shirt supporting the LGBTQIA+ community

In an India where celebrities are deathly afraid to voice their political leanings, Gen Z newcomer Janhvi Kapoor has come up with an ingenious hack. Taking to her IG account, the 24-year-old shared photos of her quiet New Year celebrations with her BFFs Tanisha Santoshi and Orhan Awatramani.

However, a close look at the T-shirt she’s wearing and Janhvi’s support for the LGBTQIA+ community becomes as clear as daylight. The black t-shirt she wears for a number of photos has a message that needs to be amplified. Fans, are you listening?

be the voice

Janhvi’s t-shirt reads “No homophobia, no transphobia, no sexism, no violence, no abuse of power” on the back. At a time when most celebrities tend to shy away from making outspoken statements, we appreciate Janhvi’s outspoken support.

These slogan t-shirts have also been used by celebrities to make statements. The most important being Rhea Chakravarty in the middle of the trial Sushant Singh Rajput appearing at the CBN office with a T-shirt who said: “Roses are red, violets are blue, let’s break the patriarchy, you and me”. It quickly went viral in the aftermath of the ensuing media trial.

Move forward

While we appreciate the (minimal) effort made by the Gen Z star, it would be far more satisfying for us to watch a more direct endorsement. Few mainstream A-listers have come out in favor of the community, so this would be a big step forward.

As Janhvi comes from a powerful position, using her platform to spread support for the LGBTQIA+ community would have more impact and ripple effect. What do you think of his t-shirt? Do you think this is a powerful message or just a banal outfit?
