There are good actors and bad actors in Bollywood and that is how it has been ever since Bollywood came into being. Every decade has seen at least one of two bad actors flourishing in Bollywood for reasons unknown and somehow we have all come to accept it.The problem, however, arises when actors with limited acting abilities are paired opposite people who deliver extraordinary performances in the same films. These are a few films where one actor was delivering a career-defining performance while another was struggling very hard match up, unfortunately to no avail.RockstarRockstarIt is widely considered one of Ranbir Kapoor’s best performances. His portrayal of mercurial Jordan was powerful enough to move even the coldest of the hearts. And the in the same film there was Nargis Fakhri who literally looked like a bowl of ice-cream that has been just taken out of the refrigerator. She delivered a performance that so dismal that it was almost tragic to see such a miscast in that masterpiece of a film.RajneetiRajneetiPrakash Jha’s Rajneeti was a film where the entire star cast which included names like Manoj Bajpayee, Ajay Devgn, Nana Patekar, Ranbir Kapoor who were nailing it and how with even Arjun Rampal doing justice to his role with an unprecedented finesse, and then there was Katrina Kaif. That much-hyped Hindi speech is stuff that acting nightmares are made of.Kapoor and SonsKapoor and SonsPerhaps one of the best films of 2016, it had a dream star cast. No points for guessing that Ratna Pathak Shah and Rajat Kapoor were phenomenal and even Fawad Khan and of course Alia Bhatt were giving a brilliantly nuanced performance. Amidst all these actors Sidhharth Malhotra with his limited acting skills was totally out of depths.KickKickFor a casting director, having Nawazuddin Siddique is any films would probably be a challenge given most actor would pale in his comparison. This is exactly what happened in Kick. As a volatile and psychotic businessman Shivgajra with his trademark laugh, Nawaz was a treat to watch. Salman Khan could barely hide his limited acting skills behind his persona, which he usually does, in front of an actor of Nawaz’s caliberPadmaavatPadmaavatSo this is in no way to contest the fact that Shahid Kapoor is a phenomenal actor which is evident from his performances in films such as Kaminey and Haider. But, coming to Padmaavat, Ranveer not only entirely stole the limelight with his stellar performance, but Shahid’s portrayal of Rawal Ratan Singh was just out of tune.

Often actors are heard saying that the best part of their profession is the fact that they can be so many different people in one life through the multitudes of different roles they play on-screen.While that might be the fulfilling aspect of their craft of being an actor, for audiences characters that show a little slice of the real-life persona of the stars playing them is always an interesting and exciting opportunity.From carrying their real-life swagger with elan to playing the shy and awkward version of themselves, these are 6 times Bollywood stars played roles that shared a lot of their real-life personal traits. Take a lookSalman Khan in DabanngSalman Khan in DabanngAlthough the setting was different and with his constant run-ins with law, him playing a cop is perhaps also a little ironic, but the character of Chulbul Pandey is closest toSalman Khan’s real life persona among all his films. A larger than life persona who is an out and out family man and wants to help people around but keeps getting into trouble-that’s basically both Chulbul Pandey and Salman Khan in a nutshell. Plus that swagger just had ‘Bhai’ written all over it.Shah Rukh Khan in FanShah Rukh Khan in FanThe character of Aryaan Khanna was entirely inspired by the real-life superstarShah Rukh Khan. Portions of it was even shot in his famous Mumbai bungalow Mannat and gave an extremely real sneak peek into what goes on behind the glamour. There are a couple of scenes in films which shows many uncomfortable truths that is the reality of superstar’s life like Shah Rukh Khan. Plus the ability to keep calm in the eye of a disaster is a classic trait of Shah Rukh that he shares with this characterSanjay Dutt in KhalnayakSanjay Dutt in KhalnayakA victim of circumstances that gives him a bad boy image even though the person behind is basically a larger than life persona with the heart of a gold- no character of Sanjay Dutt has been closer to his real-life character trait than the one he played inKhalnayak. No wonder it continues to be one of the most legendary roles of his career.Ranbir Kapoor in Wake up SidRanbir Kapoor in Wake up SidA likable albeit a little-confused fella trying to come terms with the life with a passion for his craft is a lot like Ranbir in real life. Also in the film, his character is shown to be really close to his mom, which is also very much likeRanbir Kapoorwho is a self-proclaimed mamma’s boy.Ranveer Singh in BefikreRanveer Singh in BefikreAfter intensely romantic roles in films like Ram-Leela and Bajirao Mastani, it was a welcoming change to see Ranveer in an easy-breezy role. Even if the film did not quite live up to the expectation, it showed us the side ofRanveer Singhthat is very close to as he is real life. Flamboyant, flirtatious and a romantic at heart Dharam was truly a slice of Ranveer’s own persona.Deepika Padukone in Yeh Jawaani Hai DeewaniDeepika Padukone in Yeh Jawaani Hai DeewaniIn many of her interviews, she has herself said that the character of Naina Talwar is very close to how she is in her real life. A shy and awkward girl who is a romantic at heart but faces the world on her own terms is so much likeDeepikain real life. No wonder this is one role of hers which is closest to our hearts as well.

Bollywood has seen a lot. In the strange world of Bollywood, Friday is the only decider that matters. However, with the ever-changing dynamics of Bollywood, the wheel of fame and fortune is in constant motion.Today’s generation might know Ram Gopal Varma as the fading ‘has been’ who writes really explosive andprovocative tweets, without knowing the brilliant filmmaker that has given us some of the most exquisite gems of Indian cinema. But for us, the filmmaker RGV will continue to hold a special place in our hearts and archives.Known for his enthusiasm to launch newcomers in Bollywood RGV has not only given us many new talents but also given quite a few Bollywood celebrities the roles that came to define their career. On his birthday, here are 5 Bollywood actors who owe their career-defining roles to Ram Gopal Varma.Urmila MatondkarUrmila MatondkarOne of the many gifts that RGV has bestowed upon Bollywood isUrmila Matondkar.Most of her noted performances which include films such as Kaun, Bhoot, Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya are all a product of Urmila and RGV collaboration. However, if there is one film that became synonymous with Urmila it wasRangeelawhich was also directed by none other than Ram Gopal Varma. The film is not only a landmark in the history of Indian cinema but the character of Mili Joshi is also the character that made Urmila Matondkar one of the biggest stars of 90s Bollywood.Manoj BajpayeeManoj BajpayeeWidely hailed as one of the most talented actors to have come out of Bollywood,Manoj Bajpayeeover the years have played many characters and played them to perfection. But if there is one role that not only brought him into the limelight but is still arguably his career best is the role of Bhiku Mhatre fromSatya. Many a misstep on the part of RGV is probably forgivable just for giving us this one character which changed the way we looked at gangster characters in Bollywood.Vivek OberoiVivek OberoiVivek debuted with RGV’s directorial Companyand was immediately noted by the fraternity as a new entrant with a lot of potential. Although his career did not shape out the way it started, it that does not take away from the fact that he has actually given some pretty solid performances. Although it was films like Saathiya or Yuva that were massive successes of his career, when it comes to raw, gritty performances it was a revelation to see Vivek in RGV’s revenge sagaRakhtcharitra.NagarjunaNagarjunaHe is not only one of the biggest star that Telugu film industry has ever produced, but is also among the rare few who have left an impression on Bollywood from Telugu cinema. However, whether it is in Telugu or in Hindi, the film that madeNagarjunathe phenomenon he is was yet another RGV directorial Shiva. The cycle-chain sequence has not only been immortalized but imitated in more films that can be counted and Nagarjuna has received more adulation for this role than anybody will ever achieve.Abhishek BachchanAbhishek BachchanWhenever we talk about the game-changers ofJunior B’scareer Guru and Yuva are a few names that are usually thrown around. However, his portrayal of Shankar Nagre in RGV’s tribute to Godfather, Sarkar, is probably the most measured and nuanced performance of his life. The role that was inspired by the immortal character of Michael Corleone from the original and film is the one that made Abhishek sweep all the major awards such as Filmfare, Zee Cine and IIFA Awards in the category of supporting actor.

Although he has the proverbial ‘Khan’ as his surname, Saif’s Bollywood trajectory has not only different from the Khan triumvirate but also as interesting and unpredictable as his bold choices. Written off as another run of the mill chocolate boy who is in the industry due to the influence of his mother Sharmila Tagore, his journey has been anything but smooth.He has failed several time as a lead but that had hardly deterred him from pushing the envelope. While there are many roles of his as a lead that aremajorly underappreciated,he has shined bright in supporting roles. As a Bollywood A-lister himself, he never shied away from playing the second fiddle when meaty roles came his way. From Kachche Dhaage toOmkara, these supporting character played by him are one of the biggest assets of this film and he has made this supporting character remarkable by the sheer brilliance of his performance.Kachche DhaageKachche DhaageThis Ajay Devgn starrer was probably the first time people set up and took notice of ‘Sharmila Tagore’s son’ and saw a glimpse of the actor behind the soft curls and ineffable charm that they were quick to write off. Matching the intensity of Ajay Devgn in this action drama was no mean task but Saif was a treat to watch as Dhananjai Pandit, the urban and yuppy stepbrother. He literally fit the role like a glove.Rehna Hai Tere Dil MeinRehna Hai Tere Dil MeinAgain this was a movie where R. Madhavan was literally exuding charm in every frame. Though the film was not a major hit at the box-office but has achieved somewhat of a cult following over the years and Saif deserves a major chunk of this adulation. As the ‘foreign return’ , suave Rajeev ‘Sam’ Samra, Saif was one of the coolest characters of the mid-2000s.Dil Chahta HaiDil Chahta HaiThis film changed a lot. It brought the wave of coming of age dramas and changed the way we looked at male bonding stories but above all it changed Saif’s career trajectory. His portrayal of Sameer provided such a strong and much-needed contrast to the character of Akash and Jai that makes the film the cult it is. Whether it is his romantic quotient or his sharp wit, he is an asset in a movie in which, again, lead Aamir Khan was giving a performance of a lifetime.Kal Ho Naa HoKal Ho Naa HoOne of the things about Shahrukh Khan is the fact that it is almost impossible to focus on any other character in the frame, but Saif was such an amazing exception in Kal Ho Naa Ho. He not only stood his ground as Rohit, but made the film as much about his character as it was about Shahrukh and Preity’s character by sheer brilliance of his performance.OmkaraOmkaraEverybody who thought that Saif was only fit for playing the urban or NRI yuppy and the quintessential charming gentlemen literally had to swallow their words after seeing him in Omkara. First credit probably goes to the visionary director Vishal Bharadwaj for being able to see Saif playing the antagonist Langda Tyagi, but what Saif did with the character was beyond anybody’s imagination. Shattering his urban he seamlessly blended into the role of this cunning and conniving village goon with an elan that shadowed some of the strongest performances by Ajay Devgn and Kareena Kapoor who were the main leads of the film.Honorary Mention: His performance as the second fiddle in the infamousBlackbuck rowwould probably be his most talked about supporting venture outside films, but that is a discussion reserved for another day!

With Baaghi 2 breaking every possible record at the box-office Tiger Shroff has emerged as the ultimate action hero. But amidst all the craze going on for Tiger, there arises a small question about another Bollywood celebrity who trod the very same path but did not even receive one-tenth of the success that Tiger is enjoying.We are talking about none other than Vidyut Jamwal. Much like Tiger, his dashing looks, rippling muscles and kickass kicks became the talk of the town when he showcased some serious acumen for action in his debut film Force. He also went on to do high octane action films such as Commando, but despite all the karate ‘karamaat’ he soon fizzled out and last time we saw in a laughable film named Badshaho where played a turtleneck wearing cop.So what went wrong? Even after being in the same territory and having comparable skills why did Vidyut Jamwal fizzle out and Tiger Shroff became the undisputed champion? Here is what we thinkStar KidStar KidNot to stir up the nepotism debate again or taking away from Tiger Shroff’s credit, but nobody can disagree that being Jackie Shroff’s son comes with its own advantage. When Tiger debuted with Heropanti, there was an instant buzz among people who wanted to see Jackie Shroff’s son in action. However, when Vidyut Jamwal had a debut in Force, people hardly knew about him. Additionally, it will not be unfair to say that big banners would be more accessible to a star kid than a complete outsider.Debut FilmsDebut FilmsTalking about debuts, Tiger chose a more debut friendly script than Vidyut. Although his performance and flair for action was much appreciated, at the end of the day he was playing a antagonist who was pitted against John Abraham in all his heroic and muscular glory. No matter how things change in Bollywood, heroes will always have better chance of winning audience approval than the quintessential villain.Dancing SkillDancing SkillIf anybody ever asks what does Tiger Shroff has and Vidyut Jamwal doesn’t, the most obvious answer would probably be killer dance moves. In terms of an action hero they can match up to each other but when it comes to shaking a leg there are very few in Bollywood who can even come close to him, and make no mistake, being a phenomenal dancer is still a prized skill to have when it comes to being a hero in Bollywood.Romantic HeroRomantic HeroYet another advantage that Tiger Shroff has over Vidyut Jamwal is the fact that he has tried to diversify his talents. Apart from being a bonafide action star and a talented dancer, he has always picked up roles that has a strong romantic angle as well, something than Vidyut Jamwal rarely tried to explore. While Bollywood audiences still laps up heroes engaging in high octane action sequences, nothing rolls in Bollywood without a little bit of romance thrown into the mix.Mass AppealMass AppealA combination of all these factors have led to Tiger Shroff garnering a mass appeal that Vidyut Jamwal never could. Tiger has always gone for scripts which let him explore all his skills which include action and dance packaged with a generous dose of romance while Vidyut has chosen scripts which focused entirely on showcasing his action prowess which made for rather insipid content that had little hope at the box office and thus he never enjoyed the mass appeal that Tiger does.

2018 so far has been a mixed bag when it comes to Bollywood films. While the year has given us some landmark moments like Padmaavat it has also disappointed us with films like Aiyaari. However, even though it has been only three months, Bollywood has made us witness some stellar performances, especially from actors in roles that were not of the prime significance to the plot of the film, but made their presence felt simply due to their outstanding performances. Here are the ones we are talking aboutMalik Kafur from PadmaavatMalik Kafur from PadmaavatTo say we found out how great an actor Jim Sarbh in Padmaavat would be a great disservice to his body of work. Even with people not familiar with his theatre background, he has proven himself in Neerja and how. However, in Padmaavat, facilitated by the dramatic premise, he is one of the most memorable things about the film. That is surely saying a lot for a film where the lead cast was giving a performance of a lifetime. From balancing his subtlety of homosexuality on the edge of the sword or simple things like moving in a frame, the way he blends technicalities with a poetic grace, is a total visual treat.Amma from RaidAmma from RaidIt was a character that could have been so easy to miss out, especially with Ajay Devgn and Saurabh Shukla knocking it out of the park in every single frame they are in. But the 85-year-old actress, Pushpa Joshi, who plays the part of ‘Amma, Saurabh Shukla’s mother brings a wit and presence to the role that is unparalleled. As the fading matriarch of the family whose vulnerability bows down to her sass, she is a character that will stay with you for long.Dadaji from Sonu Ke Titu Ki SweetyDadaji from Sonu Ke Titu Ki SweetyIt is very easy to write off our liking for Alok Nath’s character in Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety as intrigue for something out of the ordinary, but that would probably be a half-baked way of looking at it. Yes, the contrast of our ever sanskaari Babuji spewing expletives is fun, but there is much more to the character that keeps you hooked. The sarcasm and swag that Alok Nath pulls off and delivers a performance that is so outrageously comic.Morgue Worker from PariMorgue Worker from PariPari might have disappointed many, but one cannot discredit the fact that it certainly had a different story and a horde of intriguing characters. One of the characters that stand out simply because of his performance and not significance, is the character of the morgue worker played to perfection by Dibyendu Bhattacharya. From his body language, to his acceptance of morbidity that his job entails to the various grey elements that he brings to the table, it is one character from Pari that haunts you not because it is supernatural in any way but so natural that it baffles youGopal from MukkabaazGopal from MukkabaazIt is not easy to stand out in a role as stereotypical as the ‘hero’s friend’ but actor Shreedhar Dubey manages to do exactly that. In a film where lead cast that includes actors like Jimmy Shergill, Vineet Kumar and Ravi Kissen are making the presence of the towering acting prowess feel, Shreedhar as Gopal, the faithful friend of Shravan is never confined within the boundaries of the usual sidekicks. He brings an integrity into the small role assigned to him and can be given a huge slice of the credit for giving the film a local flavor that is as authentic as the punches in the film.

There are only a few of us who can truly claim that we love our bosses. Nagging, whining, rude, manipulative, unrealistic and pushy these are probably the adjectives that we are used to using while describing our bosses.However, when it comes to the staff of our Bollywood stars, they are far luckier than us not because they constantly get to be with our dreamy celebs andget paid handsomely, but also because some Bollywood celebrities are the best employers you can find on the face this earth. Here are the ones we are talking about.Salman KhanSalman’s generosity is no news. Whether it is his family or his colleagues, the man never shies away from bestowing love and lavish gifts for his dear ones. Salman also happens to share a close bond with his staff and especially his bodyguard Shera who has been in his service for long now. In return for his faithful service, the large-hearted star has promised to launch Shera’s son into films and he has already been put under different directors as their assistant to learn the tricks of the trade.Shahrukh KhanWhen you work the Baadshah of Bollywood, royal gifts should come as no surprise. Back in 2009 when Yaseen Khan who used to be Shahrukh’s bodyguard, received a rather generous wedding gift from the star. Shahrukh gifted the couple a flat in the Bandra area not very far from his own house. Later Yaseen Khan quit the job and started his own security and presently Ravi Singh is in charge of Baadshah’s security.Amitabh BachchanWhen longtime make up artist, Deepak Sawant decided to turn a producer, he was supported by none other than the superstar of the century and his employer, Amitabh Bachchan. The megastar readily agreed to star in the Bhojpuri film ‘Gaangadevi’ produced by his erstwhile employee.Aamir KhanAamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao gave a surprise to Aamir’s personal assistant Sudhakar. The duo not attended his marriage in Karnataka but also presented him with a lavish car as his wedding. Interestingly, Sudhakar’s father, Kushe Gowda is also a staff member of Aamir Khan and he has also helped in the construction of their house.Gurmeet ChaudhryRecently the TV hottie who has made a foray into films showed a generous gesture towards his staff. He not only covered the entire expenses but also actively participated in the wedding preparations. However, the star sadly could not attend the wedding due to some prior commitments.And then there are our non-filmy bosses who, forget flats or cars, doesn’t even give us our peace of mind.

Baaghi 2has emerged as a major success at the Box Office, what with 25.10 crore coming on the very first day of release. This has pretty much set the stage for the film to further grow from here and while a Hit tag is definitely on the cards, what has to be seen is how fast is itsjourney towards the 100 Crore Club.Also See:Box Office Report: Baaghi 2 Is A Record Smasher!With this, the film's producer Sajid Nadiadwala now has yet another franchise in hand as Baaghi was a superhit and now the second in the series would go past the former's lifetime [77 crore] in four days flat.That has only increased the stocks further for the producer's filmmaking house Nadiadwala Grandson as it adds on to the list of successful sequels/franchises that it already boasts of."That's right, with Baaghi 2 emerging as a solid success and Baaghi 3 announced already, Sajid is the undisputed King of Sequels," says a trade veteran.This can well be gauged from the fact that he has Housefull and Judwaa as the established franchises while Kick is being added to the repertoire already."Housefullstands right up there amongst other major comedy franchises like Golmaal when it comes to the commercial appeal," a close associate adds, "Housefull, Housefull 2 and Housefull 3 were all good commercial successes. Now Housefull 4 is going to the next level and it is being said that a budget of 200 crore has been allocated to it. That shows the kind of confidence that Sajid has in the franchise."On the other hand,Judwaa 2released a couple of decades after Judwaa and in a remake/re-dux avatar, it went on to attain a Superhit status. As for Kick 2, it reunitesSalman Khanwith Sajid Nadiadwala who is also the director of the film. While Kick made an entry into the 200 Crore Club, a bigger milestone of400 Croreis being aimed for the sequel which is set for Christmas 2019 release."Meanwhile there is now added craze around Baaghi 3 as well since that would bring back the original team of Baaghi 2," our insider adds, "The franchise promises to be an action entertainer and so far it has been delivering as per that as well. What has to be seen is how much bigger does Baaghi 3 eventually turn out to be since Baaghi 2 has already set new benchmarks for the production house and the actor."With four solid franchises under his belt, Sajid Nadiadwala has already taken a lead when compared to other major producers like Aditya Chopra and Karan Johar who have franchises of their own too."Aditya Chopra is the man behind one of the biggest franchises of Bollywood, Dhoom. He is also the architect of Tiger series [Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai]. On the other hand Karan Johar has seen good success with Dulhania franchise [Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, Badrinath Ki Dulhania] and is now gearing up for Student of the Year 2 (which incidentally stars Tiger Shroff again). The maximum count of franchises though is with Sajid," an observer comments.Will there be more in the offering soon enough from him? Well, it won't be surprising if his action entertainers like Jeet and Dishoom find sequels/franchises going for them as well. Now that would be something!
