At the end of the film, during the festival of love, Hugo gives Djali a flower. Djali wholeheartedly eats the flower, and licks Hugo's cheek and flutters his eye lashes, implying that he has finally accepted Hugo. However, it's also possible that Djali was only being nice as opposed to actually being in love with him.
