Pakistani Trans Activist/model Kami Sid to Star in Dil E Nadan

Dil E Nadan
Kami Sid has earned fame breaking barriers for transgender people.

Top model and Pakistani transgender activist Kami Sid has landed a first of a kind lead role in the Express Entertainment production of the drama “Dil E Nadan”.

A post shared by Kami Sid (@kamisid_official) on

Speaking with The Express Tribune, Sid discussed starring in the drama and how it’d help her cause of changing the image of transgender community. “I have been offered roles before in television, but they always wanted me to do dance numbers and reinforce the stereotypical image of transgenders. That’s why I didn’t do any of them,” she said. “For Dil e Nadan, it was different. In fact, the story was shaped into what it is after we met and discussed how it’s supposed to not do the same schtick.”

She shared that her character in Dil e Nadan is also named Kami. “This is a human story about me and how a community where I live supports me. I feel it’s great that Talent Hub is giving opportunities to all genders and all kinds of people.”

The play airs on Express Entertainment, commencing November 6 at 8:30pm, Monday to Friday.
