Ravi Dubey played different characters on screen, but his latest avatar had him in jitters. Wondering what could that be? Well, the actor had to dress up like a woman for a sequence in his show ‘Jamai Raja’. And by his own admission, it wasn’t easy to pull off the sari look.
He says, “A haldi ceremony was being performed for Roshni (Nia Sharma). And since men aren’t allowed, I sneak in, disguised as an old village woman.The sister helped him to smuggle into the house and he got his wish to apply haldi first. Even Roshni didn’t know it at that time. No one knew it was Siddharth in disguise but he thought many people might recognize him, so he tried hard to conceal his identity which made the sequence very funny, entertaining as well as romantic. ”
However, this is not the first time he dressed up as a woman. He had performed a number for an event with his wife Sargun Mehta, where he attempted a dance form which only girls do. “Even this sequence that I shot recently was as much fun as the last time. The disguise is not an easy one to pull off, but it’s fun. With these experiences, I can claim that it’s not easy being a woman. As an actor it’s always challenging. I managed to pull it up”. ” he says.
