    5 Most Popular And Successful Dwarfs Of Bollywood & Hindi TV


    Bollywood and Indian Television might be dominated by big stars and tall men and women, but there are bigger and more talented people in small packages who’ve never really got their due in the film fraternity.

    We’ve already seen how stalwarts like Peter Dinklage (who plays the great Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones), Warwick Davis from Harry Potter in the west getting an immense amount of respect and love from their fans. It’s time we appreciate and recognize the contribution and talent of dwarfs in Bollywood and TV, who have made a mark with important roles in films and television.

    3.5 feet tall and 68 year old Lilliput’s real name is M M Faruqui and he’s by far the most successful and renowned dwarf in Bollywood and TV. He has featured in shows like Dekh Bhai Dekh , Maano Ya Na Mano etc. He has also appeared in movies like Bunty Aur Babli, Swarg, Aunty No. 1 and more. In a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror, he explained how the past five years have been really difficult for him. He said, “For the last one year, I have been making the rounds of producers' offices with two scripts. Some say, 'Dekhenge, sochenge,' while others are blunt, 'Baune uthke chale aate hain director banne.” He is currently being financially supported by his daughter.

    He also took a dig at the Hindi film industry saying, “But the Hindi film industry lets the length of a man's legs define his capability. It doesn't understand that a man doesn't think with his feet.”

    Juhi Aslam

    Juhi Aslam has been accepted and loved by a lot of viewers on TV in shows like Baba Aiso Varr Dhundo, Jodha Akbar, Badho Bahu, Warrior High etc. In an interview to a leading daily, the actress expressed rather positive views over the reception she got in television. Juhi said, “There may be people who say that my career has gone downhill, but I am glad that I have not been stereod because of my height. People approach me for my acting calibre; or else, anybody could have played the parts I have essayed so far.”
