In what can be called a first and a new chapter in Indian Cinema, Malayalam superstar Mammootty recently introduced his co-star on social media, Anjali Ameer, a transsexual, who is all set to play the lead role in a bilingual movie (Tamil and Malayalam), which is directed by Ram. The movie is set to be released later this year. While the Tamil version will be called Peranbu?, the Malayalam one is yet to be named.

The 21-year-old model turned actress, was born in a Muslim family in Keralas Kozhikode. She lost her mother at a very early age and her father a couple of years back. Since her childhood days, Anjali was always passionate about acting and to pursue her dreams she would always participate in youth festivals to showcase her talent. At the beginning of her modelling career, not many people were aware about her sexuality. It was only after she was dropped from a TV show, which became a controversy, most of them came to know about her sexuality.

Anjali felt feminine and in early 20s and even went through a sex change surgery. Anjali faced a lot of criticism not only from outsiders but also from her family members. Due to which she ran away from her home and started living with transgender community in Coimbatore and Bengaluru. Later, after much protest her family accepted her for who she was. They requested her to come back home and since then have been a constant support and her strength.

With her first movie ready to hit the screens, Anjali has been getting a handful of offers from Tamil and Telugu too. Anjali has definitely set a mark not only in Indian Cinema but also has become an inspiration for other people from her community to come out in open and pursue their dreams.

Way to go Anjali!

Senior Telugu actor Chalapathi Rao booked by Hyderabad Police for allegedly passing sexist remarks about women. A case has been registered against him at Saroornagar Police Station when a womens organisation filed a complaint against him.

Rao, during an audio launch of Nagarjunas son Naga Chaitanyas upcoming film, said that women are only fit to be good partners in bed. He had made the comments when an anchor during the programme sought his opinion whether girls are a disturbance to mental peace, (which is the tagline of the movie).   Rao responded by saying, What can I say if you ask like that? Women aren’t a disturbance to peace. But, are useful to sleep with.

Rao faced a huge backlash on social media after he made those derogatory comments. Rao, while speaking to a TV channel, rendered an apology by saying that he has immense respect for women.

However actor Nagarjuna’s comments came only after Rao’s comments revoked a negative reaction from women’s organisation.   I always respect women personally and in my films. I definitely do not agree with Chalapathi Raos derogatory comments. Dinosaurs do not exist!!, Nagarjuna tweeted on Tuesday.
