Kami Sid has been actively involved in various campaigns and creative projects. The transgender activist’s short film ‘Rani’ will be premiered at the Newport Beach Film Festival in the United States.
The short film has been selected for screening at the festival which will run from April 26 to May 3 in Orange County, California.
