Indians are guilty of enjoying an overrated and exaggerated form of entertainment. Whether he is going to jump out of a burning building unharmed or fight a vicious tiger, if he is playing on a theater screen, it does not have to make sense.
It’s no different when you’re going to see actors playing crossword puzzles. Even if it is criminally and terribly scary, the public will consume it without even thinking about it for a second. From the horrific sexist films starring Govinda in a girl’s tennis suit and ponytails to Ranbir Kapoor mixing them up in a crossdressing ad, here are some of Bollywood’s worst crossdressing characters.
1. The trio of “Humshakals”.
Having recently agreed to scary reviews he received from his drag look Humshakals, Saif Ali Khan told Kusha Kapila in a recent interaction that it was completely embarrassing. Not only did he wear a swimsuit and a bad wig, but also co-stars Ram Kapoor and Riteish Deshmuskh crossed paths in the film. Needless to say, there was nothing tasteful about these masks.
2. Ajay Devgn and company at “Golmaal Returns”
Expectations from the sequel skyrocketed when Golmaal it went well at the box office. However, when Tusshar Kapoor’s dumb character dressed in a kimono costume with his co-stars Ajay Devgn, Shreyas Talpade and Arshad Warsi showing off a huge, fake breast, Golmaal returns nothing but a feast of creeps took place.
3. Akshay Kumar in “Laxmi”
4. Riteish Deshmukh in “Apna Sapna Money Money”
Ritesh Deshmukh has always been loved for his comic timing and talent. But the actor has done his share of awful roles in movies like Apna Sapna Money Money. Riteish plays a rogue who disguises and deceives people in the film.
5. Sharman Joshi and Sahil Khan in “Style”
Although Style is one reason why Sharman Joshi got on the map, the movie had its creepy moments that were offensive and sexist. For example, the protagonists Sharman and Sahil Khan disguise themselves as women to live in a women’s hostel. The disgusting fake implication of pinched clothes, shrill voices and overtly sexual behavior were some of the elements that these cross-bred characters misunderstood.
