Asgar said, "Wherever I go for such shows, I don’t let the anchor announce my name, I just enter as Dadi. At this event, by the time I entered, people were already drunk. Unhone uske baad jo hamla kiya hai mere upar (The way they attacked my after this) - they were putting their hands on my chest, they were pinching my butt, I was molested! There is a girl in my team, and she managed to save me, warna main nikal nahi paa raha tha (I was unable to get out of there). Mera tab yeh question tha, ki bhai aapko pata bhi hai ki yeh ek aadmi hai jo aurat ka role kar raha hai? (I wanted to ask whether they knew it was a man playing the role of a woman) And the second question was - even if you don't know, yeh toh ek buddhi aurat hai na, usko toh chhor do! (this is an old lady, atleast let her be)"

Asgar will be next seen as Chauthi in Kanpur Wale Khuranas for Star Plus, also starring Sunil Grover and Aparshakti Khurana. The series showcases the Khuranas, a large family that more often than not gets embroiled in hilarious scenarios. Grover will invite eminent personalities, including celebrities and achievers to the show. Adah Khan will be playing Grover’s wife in the show.

The first episode will feature veteran actor Dharmendra along with Simmba director Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh.
