Ali Asgar is a popular and entertaining actor, and has been in the industry for a long time. But he gained major fame as Dolly Sharma aka Dadi in Comedy Nights With Kapil and Begum Luchi and Nani on The Kapil Sharma Show.
Now teaming up with pal Sunil Grover, he spills beans on how he doesn’t want to play female characters anymore. He stated in an interview with a leading daily,
Frankly, I don’t want to do a female character now. It depends on how the creative will be locked and what the channel wants…When I did Comedy Circus, my son asked me if I only knew how to play a female part and nothing else. In Sunday Finale also I played a woman in 17 episodes out of 21. I had quit doing shows back then. I had no work for 6 months. Then I got Jeannie Aur Juju. I did it because I wanted to do something for the kids. And thankfully the show did well. Unfortunately as actors we get slotted.
