‘Pills the Beans’ with Sushant Divgikar on Drag

Fashion is of major interest to both men and women across the globe, however there are certain aspects that we’ve struggled to decode either out of the fact that there isn’t enough coverage or because many don’t relate to them.

It could be what high heels are to men, or the lack of variety in men’s fashion, to women. In keeping with Vitamin Stree’s constant effort to create content around ideas that are relatively fresh and unexplored in India, Vitamin Stree had Sushant Divgikar come on board for their short documentary,

where he ‘Pills the Beans’ on Drag.

 

Also see what happened when Sushant and his mate Norden took over FSoG’s Instagram account.

While Drag is still a relatively new art form in India, Sushant Divgikar has found himself a place internationally with his

Rani-Ko-He-Nur avatar.

In Vitamin Stree’s latest video, Sushant ‘Pills the Beans’ as both himself and Rani, and compels us with both their perspectives on drag, fashion and what it’s like to be the eccentric, Rani-Ko-He-Nur.

 This piece aims to introduce a person to everything that goes into transforming into a drag queen (or king) and explain what it’s like to be a part of a rather unique set of artists.

“At Vitamin Stree, we aim to do two things:

1) educate our viewers about topics and issues that they might not be aware of, and

2) create conversations and be as inclusive as possible. This piece with Sushant attempts to hit both these targets and we hope it gets a lot more people to have more conversations about Drag.”
