The Indian film industry has mostly portrayed the transgender community in a cliché comic & negative light. In international movies & documentaries, “the world of the Hijras was described as a trans-utopia, where gender differences are celebrated & even revered. What we need to gauge in the depiction is the fact that most of the Hijras are maligned in real life & are mistreated every day of their lives. Many are forced to beg & make a living by sex work. The first time a real biopic film on transgender made in Odisha.
A film is a real-life event. It’s a biopic and Real life story of Meghna Sahoo India’s first Transgender Cab driver and social activist. A real inspiration to the transgender community and to the global community.
