Even if you are not a fan of item numbers, you are absolutely going to love this one. Amir Mohiuddin’s upcoming musical-romance flick carries a bombshell of a song, featuring a performance of Gohar Rasheed alongwith more than a hundred transgenders.
“I’m certainly doing an item number and that too with transgenders. And I would love to mention how an absolutely wonderful experience it has been for me to shoot an entire dance sequence with such amazing people,” Gohar tells HIP.
Further on, Gohar said, “I was told in the narration that there will be an item number with the transgenders and I was absolutely game.”
The mentalities long locked and webbed are being broken for good now, as this diverse song is being made to initiate tolerance and acceptance of differences, dissimilarities and diversity.
“Everyone who is behind the song, the director, the composer and even the choreographer was eager to take this initiative. The idea behind including transgenders for an item number was to generate acceptance. We want to change the perception of the society and show them the positive side of these people,” says Gohar Rasheed.
Gohar further shares that his experience working with this particular dance team has been nothing but amazing. Narrating an incident, he shared, “one day I was feeling really down after a long day of shoot and all of them just surrounded me, cracking jokes in their typical language, teasing, ‘Haye Haye Gohar Bhai ap tu kitne handsome hain, yeh tu apki dewani hai,’ just to make me laugh and cheer me up.”
Seeing our industry taking such initiatives is super refreshing and remarkable.
So are you sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for this Urwa Hocane, Bilal Ashraf and Gohar Rasheed starrer to come out? Us too!
