Actor Ali Asgar says he fails to understand the reason behind him being offered a woman’s role in comedy shows even though he has maintained a distance from such characters for almost a year.

Ali played the role of a woman in the TV show Comedy Circus and is again seen essaying the role of an old woman in the comedy show Comedy Nights with Kapil.

“There is no dearth of male roles. I am doing this woman’s role after a year. I am surprised why people keep offering me women’s roles. Maybe it is because I am good at it,” says Ali.

Ali plays the role of comedian and producer of the show Kapil Sharma’s grandmother in Comedy Nights with Kapil. And it was his friendship with Kapil that made him accept the offer. “I agreed this time because I couldn’t say no to Kapil,” he shares.

Ali is also currently seen in the show Jeannie Aur Juju and is in no hurry to bag more projects. “Right now, my hands are full with these shows,” he says.
