Taali is a story about struggle, resilience, and indomitable power, it is about Shreegauri Sawant, who was born as Ganesh and raised in Pune and became a formidable name in transgender activism.

Shreegauri Sawant is the one of the petitioners of the National Legal Services Authority (NALSA) which was filed in 2013, in which the Supreme Court recognized transgender as the third gender with a final verdict in 2014.

The upcoming biopic will shed light on the momentous life of Shreegauri Sawant – from her childhood, her transition, to her contribution to revolutionize the transgender movement in India.

The biopic is created by Arjun Singgh Baran and Kartk D Nishandar, directed by National award-winning director Ravi Jadhav, and produced by Arjun Singgh Baran, Kartk D Nishandar and Afeefa Nadiadwal.

She will be next seen in Disney Plus Hotstar`s `Aarya Season 3` which is currently in the pre-production stage.
