Ayushmann Khurana's latest release 'Dream Girl' is having a dream run at the Box Office. The film opened to a positive response from the audience and critics. In the film Ayushmann plays a character of a call center employee who impersonates as a woman on calls. His character in the film is also seen playing female roles in stage plays.
Ayushmann has been getting praise for his portrayal of Pooja. But this isn't the first time that a Bollywood actor has turned woman for a character. The biggest male superstars in films have been seen in the guise of a woman for their films. We bring to you a list of superstars who have dressed up as a woman on-screen.
In the iconic 'Mere Angne Mein' song from 'Laawaris,' Amitabh Bachchan was seen dressed up as a woman -- in lehenga. The song was a super hit and so was the movie.
Saif Ali Khan
Saif Ali Khan was dressed in a women's beachwear in the forgettable 'Hamshakals'. Just like the film Saif getup as a woman in the film was disastrous and we hope he does not repeat the act or a movie like this.
Riteish Deshmukh, in his female avatar in Apna Sapna Money Money, looked so convincing that you have to see it to believe it. For a large part of the film, Riteish was seen dressed up as a woman flirting with Anupam Kher's character.
How can we miss Govinda when we talk about male actors in women's attire in their films? Govinda has dressed as a woman in many of his films. Nobody can forget him dancing in saree in Aunty no 1.
The list is incomplete without the mention of Kamal Haasan's character in Chachi 420. Haasan impersonated a female domestic help in his estranged wife's home to be able to be around his daughter. His character was loved by the audience and his portrayal of a woman looked convincing. He indeed looked like a 'Chachi 420'.
