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. 

Govinda

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'.
