When Ashish Chowdhary became a gorilla!

New Delhi: Actor Ashish Chaudhry`s role in `Double Dhamaal` not just required him to slip into the garb of a woman, but also that of a gorilla.

He says the costume, which was originally used in Hollywood film "Planet of the Apes", stank a lot!

"On the plus side, I got a chance to slip into a `Planet of the Apes` costume. On the downside, it stank to high heaven," said Ashish.

The actor was quite disgusted with the smell from the costume.

"It (the costume) can`t be dry-cleaned. I don`t know how many others got into it and sweated buckets inside it," he quipped.

Directed by Indra Kumar, the laugh riot will release June 24.
