Shikhandi is perhaps one of the earliest trans-characters known in mythology. Shikhandi was meant to be born male to avenge an insult in her past life as Amba. But the bigger karmic game unfolds when she is reborn female, raised male, has a sex change on her wedding night (thanks to a yaksha,and finally fulfils her destiny - to be the cause of Bhishma's death. A comic, tongue-in-cheek retelling of the story of Shikhandi, mixing the traditional with the contemporary, the play questions maleness, femaleness and everything in between. The play was runner-up at the Sultan Padamsee Playwriting Awards 2016. Shikhandi was also awarded Best Play at the Laadli Media Awards 2017, Best Ensemble and Best Supporting Actor (Female) at META 2018.
