Jackie Shroff’s daughter krishna shroff makes documentary on transgenders

Actor Jackie Shroff’s first-born Tiger Shroff made his Bollywood debut as a leading man this year, and now his daughter Krishna has decided to make her presence felt from behind the scenes with a documentary on the transgender community.

She has shot the film on her own.

While the family has kept the project low-profile, a friend of the Shroffs said: “Krishna is a very talented girl. She could’ve excelled in any field — academic or fine arts. But Krishna was very clear about what she wanted to do.”

The documentary, entitled “Black Sheep”, takes a lingering but dispassionate look at the transgender community.

Krishna’s proud mother Ayesha said: “Our daughter just completed shooting the documentary on the transgender community in Mumbai. Her documentary focuses on the community’s hopes and dreams and joys as opposed to the murky sordid side of their lives that keeps recurring in all discussions on the transgender community.”

What makes Ayesha especially proud is that her daughter did the documentary on her own.

“Krishna made this documentary in collaboration with her professor from her university — an Indo-British lady named Reshal Shah. We are very happy with what both our children are doing.”
