Bollywood does everything in twos. Two stories, two dramas, two lives and two roles! From Varun Dhawan in Judwaa 2 to Salman Khan in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, our favourite Bollywood stars have given twice the amount of fun and action in their movies. Today, we look at movies that have blown us over with the amazing double roles in them!
1. Judwaa 2
We know for a fact that the first part of the Judwaa series was amazing, which is why a second part had to be made. Varun Dhawan gets quite close to Salman Khan’s characters in Judwaa 2 by playing the double roles of Raja and Prem. One is the kidnapped son of a gangster while the other is the son of a wealthy businessman. Both the performances are fun and inspired. The movie is worth a watch for sure!
2. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo
Salman Khan’s role as Prem in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo was his return to the screen as the Prem loved by his massive fan following. The role he plays as Vivek, the sick Prince, was made as an offering to the fans he got after the success that Wanted was. This Sooraj Barjatya movie had a little in it for everyone, with more than enough of Salman Khan to go around for a happily ever after.
3. Kaho Na Pyaar Hai
Only a few actors are as lucky as Hrithik Roshan to have a dual role in their very first movie. Kaho Na Pyaar Hai was Hrithik’s first movie in Bollywood and boy. Did he make a mark! Not only was this movie instantly declared a blockbuster, but we saw how versatile an actor Hrithik could be by playing the roles of Raj and Chopra and Rohit! One was a dancer and the other was a singer. Two birds, one stone. What’s not to love?!
Kaminey was Bollywood’s chocolate boy, Shahid Kapoor’s career turning blockbuster. Through this movie, Shahid surprised everyone by showing us that he was NOT the supremely cute, good boy that we had been used to seeing him as. In Kaminey, Shahid played the role of a good boy AND a bad boy! Uff. Who knew double roles could be this entertaining?
5. Love Aaj Kal
Saif Ali Khan already plays a double role in real life. Not only is he a brilliant actor but is also a Nawab in real life! Saif is a King on screen and off screen! While he plays the eternal bad boy in most of his films, the movie Love Aaj Kal showed us not one, but two different sides to him. The movie showed Saif as a modern day jilted lover and one who fought for his love. Hmm. Didn’t think that could happen!
These may have been our current day dual roles but some of our iconic movies have had some brilliant double roles like Seeta Aur Geeta, Sharmilee and Aankhen. Vote and let us know which movie is your favourite, maybe?
