Being Hijra

SYNOPSIS

In this observational and testimonial documentary we follow Rudrani and her transgender models from the moment she conceives the idea of setting up a model agency. Against all odds Rudrani becomes Delhi’s highest profile trans activist, launching the agency under the intense glare of national and international media. After much rejection and numerous setbacks, she gradually builds the business as she gets featured on the cover pages of national magazines, stars in a drama film and scores media work for other models.
