Author's notes...

I had the privilege of watching Aligarh at the DFW South Asian Film Festival where it premiered in North America as its closing film. The movie got a standing ovation from the audience as Apurva Ansari appeared visibly touched by the audience response on the screen as he was connected via skype for Q&A that followed (picture below). Later Hansal Mehta, the director joined on skype as well for a Q&A with the audience. Vivek Vaswani, actor/ writer/ producer, was responsible for bringing the movie to DFW as a board member of DFWSAFF that is headed by Jitin Hingorani.
