In the upcoming series Taali, which premieres on JioCinema on August 15, Sushmita Sen will portray Shreegauri Sawant in a never-before-seen avatar. The Saturday teaser offers a sneak preview of her valiant journey through challenges, resiliency, and triumph.
Taali will shed light on transgender activist Shreegauri Sawant’s tenacious fight for the acceptance of the third gender in India. It was written by Kshitij Patwardhan, and produced by Arjun Singh Baran, Kartk D Nishandar (GSEAMS Production), and Afeefa Nadiadwala. It was created by Arjun Singgh Baran and Kartk D Nishandar.
At the beginning of the teaser, Sushmita is seen looking in the mirror while donning a sari and adjusting her large Bindi. On her cabinet, there is a picture of the legendary singer Usha Uthup, a queer icon. The transgender community is then seen embracing and touching Sushmita, who portrays Shreegauri Sawant, on her feet.
In order to avoid disappointing her father, a police officer, Shreegauri, a Pune native, left her home when she was in her teens. The Sakhi Char Chowghi Trust was established by her in 2000. The non-profit organization supports safe sex and offers counselling to the transgender community. She was the first transgender activist to submit a petition for transgender people’s right to adoption to the supreme court in 2014. Additionally, she filed a petition in the historic case where the Supreme Court declared transgender people to be a third gender.
