Dipti Mehta (New York) | Presented with Diwali in BCHONOUR: Confessions of a Mumbai Courtesan is a testament to the humanity and lives of sex workers; a mother’s plea for her daughter’s life and her honour; a story of the struggles of an unlikely family. See Mumbai’s red light district — the eunuch, priest, pimp, mother and daughter who call it home — come to life through the versatile and award-winning performance of Dipti Mehta. When Rani, who was born and brought up in the Mumbai Brothel, falls in love she stirs up the ire of the community. What does her future hold? Will she escape her fate?
