    Kamal Hassan donned the female avatar for ‘Chachi 420', Rishi Kapoor in ‘Rafoo Chakkar' and Riteish Deshmukh in ‘Apna Sapna Money Money'. The latest Bollywood offering ‘Humshakals' displayed Saif, Riteish and even Ram Kapoor in female avatars. But Television isn't far behind.

    Do the adorable Palak and naughty Daadi in ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil' need any introduction? Strange but true, Palak a.k.a Kiku Sharda and ‘Daadi' a.k.a Ali Asgar have tasted success, even more than in their previous serials. Kiku has garnered a lot of appreciation for forever-dancing Palak. Ali plays the alcoholic Daadi to the tee and flirts, plays and gives ‘Shagun ki Pappi' to the celebrity guests! The very fact that Ali and Kiku have been seen acting in their male forms and have been accepted as women in this show is an example of how effective their acts are. Moreover, Kiku is even part of ‘Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa' in the form of Palak!! That's the sort of adulation he has received.

    Speaking of Palak, ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil' kicked off with ‘Gutthi' a.k.a Sunil Grover. The show soared in popularity with Gutthi. Sunil was the perfect ‘Gutthi' singing with an awkward and clumsy body language, leaving the audience in splits. Gutthi-Palak were ironically known as the dancing sisters too! Sunil again played ‘Chutki' in ‘Made In India', a comedy show which was launched later. However, this time around, Sunil's ‘Chutki' failed and the show had a very short stint.

    The television serial ‘Pammi Pyaarelaal' showcased Gaurav Gera's skills of taking up the form of a married lady. However, the serial didn't do well and sank. Gaurav followed this up with his female act of ‘Dulaari' on ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil'. Since he wasn't really convincing, his character didn't continue. Even a senior actor like Satish Shah had few years back essayed his on-screen wife Maya's avatar in ‘Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai'. Right from his body language to his dialogues, he was perfect as Maya Sarabhai.

    TV actors have proved in the recent years that they can adapt the female avatar with ease and can bring a real sense of humour in that form.
