Arshad hated Aashish’s female look in ‘Double Dhamaal’

Arshad Warsi completely hated co-actor Aashish Chaudhary’s female avatar in their recently released comedy film “Double Dhamaal”.

“I hated it, I couldn’t stand it, I thought it was disgusting. I used to stare at him and he used to feel that I’m looking at him because he is looking too hot but I used to tell him, ‘Dude you look sick, it’s disgusting’. But he has done such a good job. He worked so hard on it, waxed himself. The look was too detailed,” Arshad told IANS.

“Double Dhamaal”, which released on June 24, is a sequel to the 2007 film “Dhamaal”. The project stars most of the actors from the first film, including Sanjay Dutt, Jaaved Jaaferi and Riteish Deshmukh apart from Aashish and Arshad, with new additions including Mallika Sherawat, Kangna Ranaut and Satish Kaushik. It is directed by Indra Kumar and produced by Ashok Thakeria.
