Finally, there is one man who understands girlie troubles! Moreover, after his much appreciated womanly act in Apna Sapna Money Money, actor Ritesh Deshmukh claims he understands women a lot more than others.

Bra-baring woes
Can wearing a bra be the most difficult part of being a woman? Women may disagree with it but Ritesh who pulled off a womanly act for the film feels so. "Now I realize that wearing bra and blouse is really a tough job.

Not just that I had to go through constant ogling by dozens of crew and onlookers. It was so embarrassing! In fact when I got the role, it was an experiment for me. I wanted to get into the skin of the character so I decided to remain a woman mentally as long as the shoot continued. Besides my director, there were lot many other women on the sets who helped in becoming a woman. And my make-up was so good that no one could make out that I am man," recalls Ritesh.

When I became a laughing stock…
He further adds, "It was a hilarious experience. My friends and co-stars didn't leave any opportunity to tease and embarrass me. I did and undid blouse and other stuff several times just to get familiar with them."

'Women do a lot to lure men'
Not just that Ritesh had to get his waist, legs and hands waxed for a girly appearance. "It was so painful. I had to apply all sort of creams and lotions that I never even heard of in my life. Waxing, threading and bleaching all are so painful that sometimes I really used to cry with severe pain. Now I realize women have to work a lot to look attractive and charming. And all this just to allure and get a man's attention!" states Deshmukh.

Asked how a woman feels when a man stares at her, answers Ritesh, "As far as I felt, the act of staring satisfies a woman's ego and she feels elated on being stared."
