We all know Rajkummar Rao is one of the most talented actors of the current generation and that he pushes the envelope with every movie.

A few days ago, Rajkummar Rao took to Instagram to share the poster of his upcoming film, Ludo. It was the first look of him in the movie directed by Anurag Basu.

It was not too long before the post, in which he is seen dressed in drag, went viral. Donning a ghagra choli, hair that runs down to the thighs, red lips and a bindi, the actor seems to sport an attitude while posing as if “she” is meeting someone’s eye in the distance.


Happy new year guys. #LUDO 🙏❤️@anuragbasuofficial @bhushankumar @tseries.official

What’s even more interesting is the fact that many confused Rao with Alia Bhatt.

One fan wrote: “I thought it is alia” while another thought it was Kriti Sanon and wrote: “looking like @kritisanon in 1st one.”

However, there were some who identified him and complimented the actor. One user said: “Best drag ever!!! Happy New year Rajkumar!”

Rao also shared another picture, where he sports sunglasses while seated on a bike in which one can only assume, he’s going for that small-town rowdy look.

The movie is a crime anthology and features Abhishek Bachchan, Pankaj Tripathi, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh in prominent roles.

It’s gonna be a busy time for Rajkummar Rao as he takes on shooting for The White Tiger along with Priyanka Chopra for Netflix, Roohi Afza with Janhvi Kapoor and Chhalaang with Nushrat Bharucha. Another film, Shimla Mirchi with Rakul Preet Singh and Hema Malini is likely to release soon.
