A Bollywood-style video from the United Nations (UN) on gay rights has topped over a million views on line.

It has become one of the UN's most watched videos ever on YouTube, according to Charles Radcliff of the Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights

The video which stars Indian actress Celina Jaitly is part of the UN's Free and Equal campaign against homophobia.

The video, titled The Welcome, shows a young man bringing home his boyfriend to meet his family for the first time.

Jaitly, who was named last year as a UN Equality Champion for her support of LGBT rights said that she had been overwhelmed by the positive reaction to the video.
