Television actor Paras Chhabra has opened up on whether he is okay with playing the role of a gay person in a film or show. "It totally depends on the script. If the script sounds good to me, I won't mind doing it," Paras said. The world is celebrating June as the Pride Month to mark the achievements of the LGBTQIA+ community.
Sharing his thoughts on the ongoing Pride month, the "Bigg Boss 13" fame TV star said: "Our nation is changing slowly and accepting the LGBTQ community. The purpose of Pride Month is to make our nation the best place for LGBTQ people. We are halfway there and need to do more progress about our mindsets to justify its purpose."
"We should show empathy towards them and stop making them feel left out because they are part of us. We all are humans," he added.
On the work front, Paras recently featured in a music video titled "Nazaraa" alongside his "Bigg Boss 13" co-contestant Mahira Sharma. The legendary Wadalis -- Ustad Puran Chand Wadali and Lakhwinder Wadali -- have lent their vocals to the song.
Paras and Mahira have also been part of music videos such as "Baarish," "Rang Lageya" and "Ring". They met on Bigg Boss 13 and grew a close bond. While they haven't confirmed their relationship in public, Paras claims that mahira is very special to him and he would even love to marry her. However, he is not ready to give their relationship a name.
On a related note, Paras Chhabra says he dealt with anxiety owing to constant body transformation. "I had to gain weight for my last project. The whole process to put on weight was very difficult. Gaining weight naturally and gaining weight consciously are two different things. The process took a bad toll on me. Above all, the kind of hate I got for putting on weight took me by shock which affected my mental health and triggered anxiety in me," said Paras, who has been busy working in music videos.
