We recently saw Vijay Sethupathi ace the role of a transgender in Thiagarajan Kumararaja's Super Deluxe and it is not the first time we have seen such a role in Tamil Cinema. There have been various actors who have portrayed roles as a Women or as a transgender on screens and they ace it quite convincingly as well. Some of these characters are light-hearted and funny such as Kamal Haasan in Avvai Shanmughi or most recently Sivakarthikeyan in Remo. On the other side, we also have some eccentric and serious characters who have played a pivotal role in moving the screenplay forward such as Vijay Sethupathi in Super Deluxe or Prakash Raj from Appu.
