Many people already know Kami Sid as an activist who has worked relentlessly for the transgender community in Pakistan.

Sid also made headlines when she debuted as a model in November last year and now, the trailer for her upcoming short film, Rani has been released. The upcoming flick has been directed by US-based director Hammad Rizvi and produced by Karachi-based production house GrayScale as well as Rizvilia Productions.

Excuse us while we pick our jaws off the floors.

As assistant producer Omema Nasir shared with Images in an earlier interview, "Rani tells the story of a transgender who makes a living by selling toys on the streets of Karachi, Pakistan. One day she finds an abandoned baby, lying in a cradle outside an orphanage. Overcome by emotion, she picks the baby and takes it home. Later, after a series of distressing events, she realises the discrimination the child would face as a result of her decision."
