Is Akshay Kumar wooing the transgender community?

Bollywood News

By playing a transgender ghost in Laxmmi Bomb, Akshay Kumar seems to be clearly trying to win over an audience that so far Bollywood has neglected.

Is Akshay Kumar wooing the transgender community

Sources say the transgender activist Laxmi Narayan Tripathy tweeting her appreciation of the trailer was no coincidence. That her participation was indeed solicited in making Akshay’s transgender transformation not just entertainment, but rather a movement towards an acceptance of the Third Sex in the mainstream.

Indeed, Akshay playing a transgender character could be the beginning of a new phase in the acceptance of the third sex in mainstream cinema.

Says filmmaker Onir, “More roles need to be written in mainstream Hindi cinema for the LGBT community. And they should be played by members of the LGBT community.”
