He also told PTI that playing a transgender was one of the most "mentally intense" roles of his three-decade-long career and he had to be careful about delivering his performance "without offending any community". Akshay added that he has a new-found respect for women and said, "It was an experience for me to wear a sari. It's extremely difficult to carry it. I was struggling to even walk wearing it. Hats off to how well women manage it."
