World Aids Day 2021: Bollywood movies that raised HIV/Aids awareness

Published Date:

World AIDS Day is observed across the world on December 1 every year to spread awareness about AIDS. Unfortunately, it is a serious disease and there is no cure for AIDS, which is caused by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.

One can remove its taboo only by making people aware about its adverse effects. At the same time, Bollywood plays an important role in conveying a strong message to the public about this deadly disease. We have seen several movies on AIDS over the years. Though many of them were left unnoticed at the box office but still many of them managed to create a buzz.

Let’s take a look at the Bollywood movies that raised HIV/Aids awareness:
