The audience waits for the Tamil one-act play Vellai Mozhi by transgender activist and writer, A Revathi.
Revathi recalls her younger days when she always wanted to wear a sari even when she was a boy.
The play began after transgender activist Kalki Subramaniam gave a brief introduction to Revathi and how she herself was strongly influenced by her.

“Vanakkam,” greets Revathi clad in a red sari and gold jewellery.
