Govinda inspires Jay Soni for TV show

IANS  |  Mumbai 

Actor Jay Soni will next be seen disguising himself as a woman in the TV show "Bhaag Bakool Bhaag". Jay says his look is inspired from Govindas character in the hit 1998 film "Aunty No. 1", and that he is a huge fan of the actor.

"Bhaag Bakool Bhaag" tells the story of Bakool (Jay), who wants to keep both his wives Jigna (Shruti Rawat) and Sheena (Hiba Nawab) happy.

"I am a huge Govinda fan and my look for this particular sequence is inspired from his movie 'Aunty No.1'. I have always admired Govinda's comic timing and it's exciting for me to get an opportunity to step into a character similar to what he has pulled off with much elan," Jay said in a statement.

"It's a huge experiment for me to play a woman. I've gone clean shaven to look like a woman while make-up adds the finer nuances. I hope that the viewers will enjoy watching this side of Bakool too," he added.

"Bhaag Bakool Bhaag" is aired on Colors.
