While we have seen bollywood picking up some strong topics to make movies recently, but one thing which baffles us is – Why our film-makers cannot shed their own inhibitions? Why can’t a real transgender play the role of a transgender in hindi movies?
Since ages, we have seen men playing transgender roles, while being dressed up as women. Earlier this year we saw Vaani Kapoor playing the role of a transgender in Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, and now we have Vijay Raaz playing a transgender in upcoming movie Gangubai Kathiawadi.
The debate got sparked after the trailer of Gangubai Kathiawadi came out, and we saw Vijay Raaz essaying the role of a transgender woman. While people are applauding Vijay Raaz’s acting, but this portrayal has led to many questioning the film-makers about their inclusivity.
Here’s what some people had to say.
A few twitter users also called out Bollywood’s nepotism practice, and mentioned that maybe a transgender bollywood kid might have helped bring in inclusivity among the industry.
You can watch the complete trailer of the movie below:
We have only one question to ask our dear bollywood – Why ?
