Life & Living of sex workers as portrayed in films is just about as far as you can get from the truth.

The first film is Tikli & Laxmi Bomb stars Chitrangada Chakraborty, Vibhawari Deshpande, Saharsh Kumar Shukla and directed by Aditya Kripalani. The 2 hours 13-minute-long film is about two sex workers who decide to kick men out of the system and form a cooperative that runs the business for women and by women.

Speaking about the lineup of films, Pooja Kohli Taneja, Artistic Director of Bandra Film Festival, stated, “Broken but Beautiful captures feminism. It is a theme that showcases lives of perhaps the most oppressed women in our society yet how empowered they are to really fight the system. We are really a lucky lot, to sit back, sip our coffee and talk about feminism. The women who face oppression on a regular basis, standing up for their rights is a very different ball game. Through Broken but Beautiful we would like to salute these women for their exemplary resilience and strength to not only endure but to strive for change”.

The second film Bahadur: The Accidental Brave is a Nepali film acted and directed by Aditya Seth. The film talks about labor migration to India.  Many Nepalese migrant workers are susceptible to high risk sexual behavior and end up contracting HIV.
