For a society in which men take immense pride in their masculinity, we are quite open to the concept of cross-dressing. In fact, seeing men in female avatars has become a norm in comedy shows. A man is not funny enough being himself, and thus, puts on a female avatar to draw attention. The concept has worked on many occasions. Comedy Nights with Kapil stars Ali Asgar as Dadi, Kiku Sharda as Palak, and Sunil Grover as Gutthi – these characters have made them more famous than any of their individual ventures. Bollywood, too, has many instances of male actors playing female characters. Take a look at some of these masculine beauties.
