Game Time: ‘Rashmi Rocket’, and the issue of gender testing in sports

Gender testing in sports has been widely controversial, and in several cases has led athletes to experience trauma, and face stigma from those around them. The test in question is such a burning issue in the sporting world that it finds itself at the center of a recently released Bollywood film. Rashmi Rocket, starring Taapsee Pannu, is possibly the first Indian film to deal with the subject.

In this episode, host Mihir Vasavda is joined by the writer of the film Aniruddha Guha. They talk about the issue with gender testing, and the finding the balance between entertainment and telling a sensitive story.
