In the past, actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and recently, even Shahid Kapoor have dressed up as women for some scenes in their movies and in T-Series' 'Yaariyan', two of the three male leads Himansh Kohli and Shreyas Pardiwala too did a drag queen act in a hilarious sequence in the film.
A source attached to the film unit said, "Nicole and Rakul Preet in a funny sequence decide to sneak out for a pajama party under the pretext of attending a 'Jagrata'. However, at the party, Rakul's character Saloni gets drunk and Himansh and Shreyas are entrusted with the responsibility of dropping her home. This is when the two men dress up as women to drop Saloni back home and when confronted by her skeptical dad, the two start singing the 'ABCD' song (which was played at the pajama party) in the manner 'Jagrata' bhajans are sung, with hilarious consequences."
Talking about the sequence, Himansh said, "It was quite a funny sequence and though initially, we were reluctant to dress up as women, we decided to deal with the situation sportingly." Shreyas Padriwala too chuckled when he recalled the scene and said, "It is one of the craziest scenes in the film and am sure everyone will laugh till their sides hurt when they see this sequence in the theatres."
Produced by Bhushan Kumar, 'Yaariyan', that marks the directorial debut of Divya Khosla Kumar, is a contemporary and youthful film that takes audiences through the trials and tribulations of the best years of their life and is slated to release on January 10.
