Ranjeet Punia supports transgenders

Actor Ranjit Punia, who is celebrating the back-to-back releases of his Hindi (Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui) and Punjabi film (Shwa ni Girdhari Lal), plays Vaani Kapoor’s brother in the Ayushmann Khurrana starrer. Ranjit supports the main message.

Commenting on the subject, Ranjit said, “I believe if someone close to me comes across as transgender, my reaction will be shock. However after the initial response I will do my best to support them. I am sure it would have taken him a lot of courage to speak openly on this subject. Due to lack of education our society has not accepted the idea of ​​transgender. There are a lot of books that can help one understand sexuality or gender identity. Most people have trouble understanding what it means to be trans. But all people, even those whose identities you do not fully understand, deserve respect. That is the main message that the film also conveys. Plus, the film talks about what the transgirl has done to carve out a niche for herself, the hardships she has taken to live the person she is on the inside. No one can tell by looking at him whether he is transgender or not. Many people think they will “just know” when someone is trans and it may be surprising to learn that this is not always true.

Hindi cinema has rarely focused on stories around trans characters and trans identities. The way Chandigarh does Aashiqui. “I was born and brought up in Chandigarh and I had a girlfriend who always wore sweaters and jeans with her hair cut like a boy. People who didn’t know him used to ask me about him considering him as a boy. These things didn’t matter to me at that time. We were just kids, and I saw the way she dressed as part of her choices. Years later, she confessed that she was a lesbian. I was surprised but not surprised. Because I never recognized her based on her dressing – not even when others speculated about her. I have always seen my friend beyond any label and love that person not from outside but inside, and request everyone to do the same. After talking openly with him, I told him that it may take time for me to get used to the idea, but I will do my best to support him.” Ranjit said.
