Sundari: An Actor Prepares is a film based on the play by Anurad­ha Kapur. Jayshankar Sundari was a popular female impersonator of Gujrati stage in early 20th century Bombay.

 

Centered around the works of eminent painters Bhupen Khakkar and Nilima Sheikh, the film documents the process of his journey from a boy to a man and simultaneously from a male to a female, in the context of contemporary gender discourses and politics of acting.


Premiered at Oberhausen International Film Festival
