Actor Amol Parashar who is currently seen as Nirav Chhabra in The Zoom Studio’s web series ‘Ready 2 Mingle’ says that my sexuality or masculinity cannot be defined by what I wear on screen.

The series is about the modern-day couple who is striving to revive and spice-up their love life on ‘Ready 2 Mingle’. Amol’s character, Nirav, wears a cheerleader’s dress and perform a little cheerleading gig. In the recent episode, he was seen putting a piece of lingerie on his face as a mask and pretending to be a superhero. The actor had no qualms doing these scenes and managed to do it without being flustered on the sets despite the cast and crew making fun of him.

Talking about his experience Amol Parashar said, “All these scenes where I am wearing or dealing with women’s clothes are written as a part of the narrative, and do not just exist as gimmicks. When I read those scenes, I found them cute and didn’t have any second thoughts about doing them. There is a misplaced notion of masculinity that leads to discomfort in these situations. Thankfully, I have no such qualms. I know that my sexuality, or masculinity for that matter, is not and cannot be defined by what I wear on screen. Wearing a piece of lingerie on my head, or getting into a cheerleader’s costume may be unfamiliar to me but it is not uncomfortable. And that is the plus point of being an actor - that you get to do unfamiliar things. What’s the fun if you are going to run away from them. It was weird but fun wearing women’s garments on me in ‘Ready 2 Mingle.”

‘Ready 2 Mingle’ is a series about everyday relationships of millennials and the constant search to find their true love. The show deals with issues that each one of us faces in our lives at some point but there is an ample amount of fun and frolic that keeps it engaging and breezy.
