Raktdhar first Bollywood film showing a transgender’s death rituals

India is the only country where the tradition of eunuchs is prevalent today. There are about 1 million of them, though their role in life has changed drastically from that of royal servants, confidantes, and friends. Eunuchs, or hijras as they are called here, have become something to be feared.

There have been myths and very few people know about the death procedures of transgenders. When a eunuch dies, his death rally is carried out in the night and no one else other than their community is allowed to see the procedure. It is believed that their funeral ceremony is sober. 

This mystery will be solved by the first Bollywood film, starring Shakti Kapoor to ever show a transgender’s death scene. Raktdhar’s base is about a rape case of Shakti Kapoor transgender's friend and the awful treatment they are given by the officials which leads to his death.  The film will also feature the truth of how awfully they are treated and what challenges they have to go through regularly.

Film’s trailer gives a glimpse into the story about love, political revenge and Shakti’s  struggle in society and the world of politics as he fights to take control and help his community.  The film casts Mukesh Rishi, Shahbaaz Khan, Ehsaan Khan, Deepsikha Naagpal, Manish Khanna and Archita Banerjee.
