Transgender Activist, Kami Sid Set To Star In Short Film, 'Rani'
Pakistan's first transgender model, Kami Sid first made headlines when she debuted in a stunning yet powerful photoshoot. Now, the transgender activist is set to appear in a short film to shed light about transgender rights titled Rani.
According to DAWN Images the film is directed by US-based director Hammad Rizvi and produced by Karachi-based production house Grayscale.
According to Kami, "The short film is called Rani and I play the titular character, who is a transgender. The film was shot around the beginning of October and is in post production now. The story is absolutely brilliant."
"In the film, we've shown that transgenders can do a lot more than just sex work and dancing at weddings."
Earlier featured in a documentary filmed by BBC titled, How Gay is Pakistan, Kami is known for being an avid activist about transgender rights.
