Heroes doing female roles is always special. Let’s look at 5 such films.
Avvai Shanmugi : Kamal Haasan is always a trendsetter and in this comedy riot he disguises himself as an aged nanny to be with his daughter. Kamal Haasan nails the lady look to perfection. Even today his role is considered as the benchmark for heroes playing female roles. The mannerisms and the voice modulation is top – notch.
Aanazhagan : Prasanth is a surprise. He did it before any of the leading young heroes had actually attempted it. He looks pretty and convincing as the young lady. Though the film didn’t do well at the time of release over a period of time it gained a cult following.
Super Deluxe : Vijay Sethupathi as a transgender woman is fabulous. As a woman struck between the love for her family and her new identity he gains the empathy of the audience. The finale where he reunites with his family is a heartwarming one.
Remo : Sivakarthikeyan doing a hero role was a daring attempt. The fact that he looked very attractive as the beautiful nurse was an added advantage. It is no surprise that the audience too fell in love with his role and made the film a superhit.
Kanchana : Sarath Kumar gave us a very dignified portrayal in Kanchana as the transgender woman. It is the presence of Sarath Kumar that gives the character the depth that it requires.
