"I'm a huge advocate for LGBTQI (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex). For me, it is one of the most important things that I fight for and I hope for when there is a country and a world without labels," Sonam said in a statement.
"I'm very happy and proud that India has taken a step forward and people can live and love the way they want to love and that's very important to me. And I think it should be very important to everybody in this world," added the actress.
Sonam expressed her views on the issue in an episode of Koffee with Karan season 6. She joined the chat show with her sister Rhea and brother Harshvardhan.
On the work front, Sonam will also be bringing the complexities of being a homosexual in India with her film Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. A Fox Star Hindi project, the film also features Anil Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Juhi Chawla, Abhishek Duhan, Seema Pahwa and Brijendra Kala.
Directed by Shelly Chopra Dhar, it is co-produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Fox Star Studios. It will release on February 1 next year.
