It wasn't a long time ago when women acting in films was considered to be a taboo and looked down upon. So the men took one for the team and played the women characters. Now we have an evolved film industry with wonderful actresses. However, men have not forgotten how to play female roles with ease and even today, we have some fun examples where a leading actor plays a woman and has his audience entertained.
We have handpicked a few very talented actors who are not afraid to don a dress or a saree in order to play a woman in a movie. They have made us laugh and entertained us and the least we can do is applaud them for their efforts. After all, being a woman is no easy job.
