RUBINA FEATURED

NEW DELHI: Popular Indian actress Rubina Dilaik, known for her role as Soumya Harman Sing, has stepped forward to take up a role of a transgender person in a TV serial ‘Shakti’.

According to reports, Dilaik would be the first actress in any TV serial to feature in a transgender role.

“Yes, I will play a transgender and it is the biggest revelation on the show. Soumya is going to react to it because it is the biggest secret of her life that has been kept from her.”

The concept of the show comes with a great shock value and it was very important for us to build the narrative of the show in a convincing manner.

“More than focusing on the casting of the character, the makers looked at it as an opportunity to break a stigma that had been dwelling in our society, through Soumya’s journey. It is the kind of role I will be remembered for and will resonate strongly with viewers.”
