Comedian Ali Asgar, who is known for convincingly playing a female character of an old woman called Dadi in his comedy shows, has revealed that he was molested by drunkards when he was performing at a wedding in Delhi.
"Wherever I go for such shows, I don't let the anchor announce my name, I just enter as Dadi. At this event, by the time I entered, people were already drunk. Unhone uske baad jo hamla kiya hai mere upar – they were putting their hands on my chest, they were pinching my butt, I was molested! There is a girl in my team, and she managed to save me, warna main nikal nahi pa raha tha. Mera tab yeh question tha, ki bhai aapko pata bhi hai ki ye ek aadmi hai jo aurat ka role kar raha hai? And the second question was – even if you don't know, ye toh ek buddhi aurat hai na, usko toh chhor do," Ali Asgar told The Times Of India in an interview.
Ali is now coming back with his new show called Kanpur Wale Khuranas which is being headed by Sunil Grover who has also been part of hit shows like The Kapil Sharma Show and Comedy Nights with Kapil.
The comedy chat show revolves around Sunil, who plays the role of a man, who has four sisters-in-law and a brother-in-law, played by Aparshakti Khurana. The format of the show will see celebs visiting the show with the Khurana family entertaining them.
The eight-episode show will start airing from December 15.
