I have seen Bollywood films and love Priyanka Shopra. Really adored this film especially the angle with the Hijeeras - did not know anything about them - and its shocking how transgenders are treated in some parts of the world.
I went for this film because I read that it got banned in several countries because of the transgender characters. What I found was a beautiful film - some comedy, some drama - along the lines of The Big Sick or 100 Foot Journey (both of which I love).
If you are a fan of either of those, do catch this one - but not for a Bollywood treat. I also loved the lead actress and will add her to my list of faves.
