This film would have been incomplete without Paintal. Although Rishi Kapoor managed to cross-dress and walkthrough it in high heels with ease, Paintal reportedly got so carried away with the act that he even forgot for a while that he’s a guy!

It might be in the list of the worst films ever made, but Saif Ali Khan does get a special mention for his drag look.

With bold lip shades, feathery ear-rings, Saif does look the best cross-dresser in the film! But that’s not saying much, considering the fact that he had Ram Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh for competition.

Well the male actors aren’t the only ones to experiment with cross-dressing. Bollywood female leads prove that they too are quite capable to stepping into a man’s world.

Rani Mukerji grows a beard and still manages to look cute as a Sadarji! She turns into Veer from Veera in Dil Bole Hadippa, all this just to be part of a men’s cricket team.
