Bahurupiya is an exploration of identity, through the lives of two folk performers, whose fadinginherited profession involves ‘wearing many faces’.Kishan Bahurupiya is a low-caste Punjabi Hindu who transforms into a monkey, while Abdul Hamid is a Muslim Bhand from Rajasthan who assumes the mythical role of the Hindu demon king Ravana so completely that it has become second nature to him. Despite hailing from very diverse contexts, the two Bahurupiyas have in common, the role of being an entertainer.
