Did you just say no character in Indian TV, since Ali Asgar and Sunil Grover, have managed to perfect their men-in-drag avatars? Wait till you’ve seen Aasif Sheikh play a desi woman, Vibhuti Narayan, in popular serial Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain. Yes, his act, complete with the mandatory red lipstick, kohl eyes, bangles and bindi, looks convincing and hardly over-the-top.
Vibhuti dons the new avatar of a beautiful woman to shield his neighbour Tiwariji (Rohitash Gaud) from none other than Yamraj himself!
Asif had earlier played the roles of a kabadiwala, Radio Jockey, a bald guy and even a Sardarji, among others.
Talking about his new avatar, Aasif said, “Honestly, I love donning get ups. I had a lot of fun shooting the scene with Rohitashji. There is a scene where he is kissing me on my cheek too. I hope the audience enjoy this new look of mine.”
Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai also features Saumya Tandon and Rohitash Gaud and airs on & TV.
