Villains are always remembered – sometimes more than the actor – be it in Hollywood or Bollywood. We all remember Mogambo and Gabbar as well as the Joker from Batman.
A hero has always managed to outdo his antagonist to save the day, but they also make a place in our hearts.
Alfred Hitchcock once said, “The more successful the villain, the more successful the film.” And he couldn’t be any more right.
Be it a captivating performance or just a brutally agonizing and painful-to-watch character, villains have always had a good space in Bollywood and are successful in stealing our minds.
Here are 6 actors who are all set to play the baddies in upcoming Bollywood films.
We love him what ever role he plays – be it as a comedian or as a soldier – It is always a thrill to see Khiladi Kumar on screen and now we will get to see him as a villain opposite none other than Rajinikanth! Akshay will be seen as a bad guy in Robot 2.0. It’s going to be crazy to see the talented actor make a comeback as a baddie.
We have seen her playing an ichadari naagin in two seasons of Colors’ Naagin. Mouni is all set for her big Bollywood debut with Akshay Kumar in Gold. Also, she is all set to make her debut as a vamo with Brahmastra starring Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor. We are definitely looking forward to seeing her on the silver screen.
We remember her as the sweet Preeti in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge as well as the evil spiteful Madira from Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. Mandira Bedi is returning to films after a hiatus with the much-awaited Saaho, starring Prabhas. It will be fun to watch the gorgeous actress turn evil on screen.
Pankaj Tripathi will be returning as a villain in Hrithik Roshan starrer, Super 30.
Although his look from the film hasn’t been revealed, the National Award winner has commented that he has done prosthetics to give his character a slightly edgy and weird vibe.
After his classic take on the quintessential Bollywood baddie in Dabangg, Sonu Sood will be making a comeback as the villain on the big screen in the Rohit Shetty helmed film, Simmba, starring Ranveer Singh in the titular role.
Ashutosh Rana is returning to the big screen, playing a politician in Dharma Productions’ Dhadak, starring Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor. And by the looks of it, he seems pure evil.
