A still from the scene

Television actor Rubina Dilaik, who plays the role of an intersex in the series ‘Shakti — Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki’, recently shot a sequence in Thailand along with transgender co-stars.

A source from the unit says, “The scene had to look grand and beautiful, so, the makers opted to shoot in Bangkok. They roped in a few transgender artists to give it an authentic feel. They looked beautiful.”

Dilaik, who was shooting for a scene in which her character was set to be sold to the highest bidder, was mesmerised by her co-actors. She was happy to notice how accepting Bangkok is of people with different gender identities. “Three to four actors that we appointed were transgender. They were beautiful. Being in their company isn’t unnatural here. We [in India] should avoid gender labels.”
