Pakistani Transgender Rimal Ali is breaking Stereotypes
Pakistani transgender model Rimal Ali was recently seen in one of the latest Eid releases 7 Din Mohabbat In (7DMI). The film stars big guns from the industry such as Mahira Khan, Sheheryar Munawar and Javed Sheikh amongst many others in pivotal roles.
Being a skilled dancer and a prominent figure in Pakistan’s transgender community, Ali first featured in a 2017 music video of the local band, Soch. In 7DMI, Ali is seen performing an item number called Saudai Saiyan.
Speaking to a leading English publication Variety, about her role in 7DMI, Ali said, “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.”
She continued that she was thrilled at how wonderfully the story featured a transgender character. “Directors of the film, Meenu Gaur and Farjad Nabi made sure to not victimize the character either, which is another trap that films often fall into,” added Ali.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 firstname.lastname@example.org
