Anil Kapoor and his daughter -Sonam Kapoor starrer 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga' which also stars phenomenal actors like Rajkumar Rao and Juhi Chawla is all set to hit the theatres on first of February in 2019.  Shelly Chopra Dhar directed this romantic-drama film carries a story which is not in much fashion when it comes to Bollywood. Last time when we had seen something similar in Bollywood was when Fawad Khan had played the role a gay on screen. The trailer is out and is already making headlines and good reviews.


The script of the movie is written by Gazal Dhaliwal who herself is a transwoman. The writer has previously written for movies like Wazir and Lipstick Under My Burkha which gained critics' applause on a wide level. “I was born in the wrong body. I never felt like a boy. Even the smaller things I liked were feminine. My friends were girls, I loved playing dollhouse with them. When my mother wasn’t home, I would wear her dupatta. All of this started as young as five. I remember, once when my mother wasn’t home, and I was dressed in her clothes, my aunt saw it. Finding my behaviour extremely strange, she slapped me hard,” she says.

“They would call me slurs like chakka (eunuch). I knew I had to control my feminine traits because if I expressed them, people would make fun. For a very big part of my life, I had lived suppressing my identity. I felt confined and caged in my own body. The gender that my body had was nowhere close to the gender my soul identified with.”


“I was depressed. I couldn’t cope with academics. Just a day before the exams, I stole some money from home and boarded a train to Delhi. I was terrified after the train crossed Patiala. There were some men who kept telling me to go with them. I got off, ran to a telephone booth an called my mother. She was crying on the other end. ‘Please come back Gunraj, we won’t say anything.’ I promised to return home. My father’s close friend in Delhi picked me up, and the next day, my father drove from Patiala to take me home,” she continued.

“I wanted to transition, but it was difficult at the time. So I decided to pursue my next big dream, to write for the Hindi film industry. It was at the time I realised, that transition was difficult, but not impossible."
