At the end of Bohemian Rhapsody, right before the Live Aid concert, Freddy Mercury meets his parents and sister together with Jim Hutton.
At one point, he says Jim is his friend and hold hands with him. His father then hushes his daughter Kashmira to give Jim some sweets.
The camera clearly focuses on the plate which is handed to Jim and we see him parting hands with Freddy, taking in his left hand the sweet.
Did Bomi Bulsara have the sweets offered so that they do not hold hands together, or just to ease the tension?
The next scene shows that the father and the son are reconciliated to some point, at least from the perspective of Freddy professional activities. I was wondering whether he also (in real life) accepted his sexual orientation.
