In the last episode of Pride and Prejudice, we explored how trans actors struggle to find opportunities in Bollywood. So, in this episode, host Suryatapa Mukherjee spoke to trans filmmakers Varsha and Asawari, who started their own production studio, Star Hopper. We explore what it’s like for queer-trans people behind the camera in the industry and how marginalised artists can create opportunities for themselves. In this conversation, we also found out that one of the trans actors we spoke to in the previous episode is now making a film with Star Hopper! Tune in to find out more.
