Anushka Sharma: So disappointed with the SC verdict. Freedom is such a deceptive term. Rights are an ambiguous mystery. #scrap377

Farhan Akhtar: The Supreme Court got it wrong today. #Sec377

Neha Dhupia: How can love be illegal ? #Section377

Rahul Bose: In Dubai and feel so far away from the debate on the judgement on Section 377. So much for those believing the judiciary is 'the last bastion of common sense' in this country.

Shruti Haasan: Second 377 its frightening how someone else decides how when and who you should love -basically freedom of choice isn't legal anymore.

Ranvir Shorey: Don't expect any better when you have lawmakers with self serving, medieval, khap mentalities. #India #scrap377

Shruti Seth: So while the world is trying to legalise gay marriage here's what we're doing as a nation. Such a disgrace!!

Raj Kundra: While I don't personally support homosexuality I do feel sad for such a regressive route taken by supreme court. Let the individual choose!

Nikhil Advani: Welcome to the medieval ages! It was only a matter of time. #Sec377

Poonam Pandey: What business does the government have in our bedrooms as long as the fundamental rights of others are not encroached upon? #Sec377

Anupam Kher: We obviously don’t believe in equal rights even in the times when we send mangalyaan to Mars. #SupremeCourtVerdict

Vinay Pathak: Supreme Court - STRAIGHT? or SCARED!

Archana Puran Singh: An atrocious violation of human rights... criminalization of homosexuality. Shocking verdict by SC!

Atul Kulkarni: SC-Parliament will have to take a stand.(read People). 2 same sex adults don't have the 'legal right' on their sexual act even if in private.

Shirish Kunder: Personally, I've no problem with same-sex relationships, as long as it's not compulsory. 

Kunal Kohli: Surprised at the supreme court. It's 2013. Laws need to be in keeping with the times & most importantly people 'choices'.
