Shakti Kapoor Promotes Transgender Rights

Known for his comic villainous roles, Shakti Kapoor has recently taken an unusually serious stance. In the latest film Raktdhar, he has portrayed a transgender character who attempts to bring justice to the death of a victimized transgender. “Even small things are capable of making big changes,” said Shakti Kapoor, “Raktdhar isn't a big budget film but I believe it will make people see the message we are trying to preach. Hopefully people will look at transgenders equally now and focus on their rights.” Ajit Verma, the director of Raktdhar, stated, “If we can make people change the negative way in which they view transgenders, I will consider this movie a success.” The movie also features Mukesh Rishi, Shahbaaz Khan and Ehsaan Khan, among others.
