Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - YASHIKA MATHUR

Ac­tor Gau­rav Gera (left), who has es­sayed quite a few fe­male char­ac­ters on­screen, says he has more re­spect for women ac­tors af­ter re­al­is­ing what a tough time they go through on the sets while shoot­ing.

“It’s painful to be a woman. Life is very easy for us guys. We reach the set five min­utes be­fore the shot and get ready. But ac­tresses have to reach hours be­fore the shot, get ready and sit straight all the time to keep the makeup and heavy ac­ces­sories in­tact,” says Gau­rav, who has done TV shows such as Dekh In­dia Dekh, Mrs. Pammi Pyare­lal, and is seen as Chutki in his online com­edy se­ries.

“I re­spect ac­tresses much more now. They go through so much. It’s nat­u­ral for them to get ir­ri­tated but then, they end up be­ing in­fa­mous for throw­ing tantrums,” he adds.
