Although Deepa Mehta’s film Fire in 1996 is considered to be the first Bollywood film on gay relationships in which Nandita Das and Shabana Azmi were in the lead role, very few people will know that in 1995, Irrfan Khan Played a gay character in a film called Adhura. This film is considered to be the first film in Bollywood on gay relationships. Sadly, the film could never be released.

The story of the film was on gay relationship Irrfan Khan himself had told about this during an interview that he had played a gay character in a film.
