In order to play a girl, Ritesh had to get his arms, chest and legs waxed. Then he had to shave twice a day and sit for long make-up sessions before every shoot. He had to wear padding on his chest and a variety of wigs on his head.
And the result was stunning. The first time Ritesh stepped out of his van in a girl's attire to shoot for his scene, everyone around was astounded.
Ritesh says that first walk from his van to the sets (with all eyes on him) was the longest walk of his life.
But this was just the look of the character. Ritesh still had to bring the body language of a girl in his character.
Ritesh says he didn't want to overdo things as that would have made his character look like a caricature. Since the film features a number of heroines ( Celina Jaitley , Koena Mitra and Riya Sen ) Ritesh decided to observe and imitate them.
But even this wasn't enough. After a while, Ritesh decided to behave like a girl all the time when he was on the sets.
This left the movie's director and other stars in fits of laughter.
And if a statement by the movie's director Sangeeth Sivan is to go by, Ritesh has "looked prettier than the movie's heroines" in some scenes.
Perhaps that is why Anupam Kher keeps drooling over him in the film.
