She also added that mostly Bollywood and Lollywood films end up making fun of transgender community in their films. So, she always wanted a character which did not victimize her community.
“The first thing I wanted to be sure of when the role was offered to me was whether it makes a mockery of our community, which happens often in Bollywood and Lollywood films.”
Ali said that the producer and director made sure that the film gave out this message that everyone has a right to self-identity. She wore a Sania Maskatiya’s dress in her item song. Rimal loved the way she was treated by all her colleagues and added that she had a lot of fun at the shoots.
“We had a lot of fun during the shoot!”
This year has been a year of breaking a lot of stereotypes.
As Transgender person act passed this year, things for the community changed a lot in our country. First, Mavia Malik became the first ever transgender News Anchor. Now, Rimal Ali’s role in a big film shows things are changing eventually.
Transgender community is finally getting the right place in our society.
People are finally realizing, after all the discrimination, that this community is lacking basic rights. And, media is the perfect platform to change the perspective of the people. Soon, we will be seeing more films highlighting the issues of transgender community in our society.
