Glad tidings for the transgender community in Pakistan, as trans activist and model Kami Sid, has won an accolade for the country. After making it to various other film festivals globally, her short film Rani was recently screened at NBC Universal Short Film Festival held in Los Angeles, where it won an award for ‘Best Writer – Film’.
Speaking exclusively to Something Haute, Kami expressed her joy on the triumph. “As an ambassador for Pakistan, I proudly represented my film Rani at the event. The film was nominated in three categories, namely best director, best actress and best writer. It’s a huge moment and a great honour for me as Rani has won the Best Writer – Film,” the actress said.
Kami looked uber glamorous in a custom-made gown by Deepak and Fahad.
Produced by Rizvilia Productions and GrayScale, Rani has been written and directed by Hammad Rizvi. The story of the film revolves around a socially outcast transgender woman (Kami Sid) who sets out to take care of an abandoned child. She faces waves of challenges, yet is determined to do the right thing.
