Jambalakidi Pamba: Does playing woman mean acting like a gay?
This is the question Srinivas Reddy and his 'Jamba Lakidi Pamba' director JB Murali Krishna should be asked. Because gay-like acting is what the actor delivers in the name of looking the part of a woman in the latest Tollywood release.
In 'JLP', Pallavi (Siddhi Idnani) swaps her body with that of her husband Varun (Srinivas Reddy). As such, Reddy behaves like his wife. But his body language is a far cry from how Siddhi is seen in the first half. While Siddhi is not coy, or submissive, or too girly, Reddy acts like one when his wife's soul enters his body.
The way the actor handles it, he becomes seeming like an oversimplified image of a woman's demeanour. Worse still, he acts like a gay!
