Despite mastering the skills of dressing up as a woman and showcasing female quirks, actor Gaurav Gera is finding it rather tough to dance while donning his woman avatar, Chutki in the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. The accessories that help the stand-up comic amplify Chutki’s image are actually proving to be a hindrance during rehearsals.

The wig, especially, keeps slipping off with each thundering move. Faced with a daunting challenge to get his act together and make it worthy of the Jhalak stage, the actor has now started pouring over different videos of the show’s contestants, hoping for tips. He is paying special attention to videos of Kiku Sharda, who took to the stage in his well-loved and appreciated female avatar, Palak, during season seven of the show.

 

Talking about his predicament, Gaurav says, “When I agreed to perform as Chutki, I had no idea what I was getting into. Playing a woman and dancing like one are two different things, and I realised that during the rehearsals. I commend Kiku for the way he performed week after week with complete enthusiasm. I am not used to wearing heels but am now trying not just to walk but dance in them. I want to take it up as a challenge.”
