Kami Sid’s next film is a transgender love story
Soon coming short-film Rani doesn’t require a presentation. As transgender extremist Kami Sid’s first historically speaking undertaking, the film is a one of a kind story a transgender Pakistani lady who embarks to deal with a relinquished child.
In any case, living in the core of Karachi, Rani (Kami) faces numerous difficulties all the while, decided as she might be to dependably make the right decision.
“I’m very excited that Rani is finally releasing in Pakistan,” Kami told The Express Tribune, at a special screening. “It’s our film; it’s a film for our people. I’m very glad that I’m a part of this.”
Talking about why a story like this is necessary for the Pakistani audience, Kami said, “Rani has already won so many accolades internationally. I think it’s imperative for our people to see it because I think it’s a very close issue. It’s a film about transgenders and motherhood.”
According to the actor, “People still tend to hide a lot of important topics in our films and dramas. Usually projects on subjects like these are either attacked by critics or stopped by Pemra. But Rani? It prominently showcases the life of a transgender in Pakistan.”
Kami also spoke about her experience of working in Pakistani showbiz. “It was my first film. I’ve worked in several documentaries before but working in Rani was completely different,” she said. “The director of Rani, Hammad Rizvi, was extremely supportive of everything. He was very patient. He taught me a lot of things like angles and postures.”
“One that I’ve been doing lately is working in fashion mostly. Hopefully, you’ll see me somewhere in a huge fashion show. For now, my focus is completely on trying out new things,” she responded. “I’m also working on a transgender love story. I’m not in a hurry, nor is films production being stopped. I’ve few offers but my primary goal is to see how I can highlight the issues of the transgender community. I’m from that community and that will always be my goal.”
Discussing the vision behind Rani, Rizvi revealed, “When I first started the film, I had few things that I wanted to talk about which included the transgender community, orphans and generally those who are underrepresented. If you forget all labels after watching this film, then for me that’s a success.”
Another important issue the film sheds light is adoption.”We have Bilquis Edhi on board,” the producer of the award-winning documentary, Akbar Allana, said. “She will be one of the panelists at the KLF. We wanted to raise awareness about this, along with transgender awareness.”
Subsequent to scoring a few worldwide screenings and grants, the fifteen-moment film is at long last set to debut at the Karachi Literary Festival (KLF), which will be held from March 1 to March 3.Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to email@example.com
