Rajkummar Rao is one of the few actors who can, very convincingly, pull off unconventional roles really well. Recently, the actor dropped his first look from his upcoming film, Anurag Basu's Ludo and left netizens in disbelief. In the first still, Rajkummar is dressed as a drag in a midriff-exposing ghagra choli with long hair, red lips and a bindi. He is seen looking away from the camera. The actor captioned the picture as, "Happy new year guys. #LUDO @anuragbasuofficial @bhushankumar @tseries.official."

The actor's jaw-dropping transformation broke the internet and many even confused him to be Alia Bhatt. A fan commented, "I thought it is alia" while another netizen wrote: "looking like @kritisanon in 1st one." Others complimented him for the look and wrote, "Best drag ever!!! Happy New year Rajkumar!"

The actor posted another picture dressed in flashy clothes as he poses on a motorcycle decorated with tassels. Directed by Anurag Basu, Ludo is a dark comedy which also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Sanya Malhotra, Pankaj Tripathi and Rohit Saraf. The crime-anthology is slated to release on April 24, 2020. Besides Ludo, Rajkummar Rao will also be seen in Rooh Afza opposite Janhvi Kapoor and Chhalaang which stars Nushrat Bharucha. The actor is doing a Netflix film, The White Tiger with Priyanka Chopra.
