Over the years, Bollywood has given us a lot of things. From star crossed lovers to the girl next door, we have had our share of iconic characters over the years. However, while every movie inevitably talks about the defeat of good over evil, we seem to ignore the brilliant performances by the bad guys. Today, we are here to take you down the memory lane and give you a brief insight into some of the better known Bollywood villains!
1. Mogambo from Mr. India
How can one ever forget the brilliant Mogambo from Mr. India? Played by Amrish Puri, the line ‘Mogambo khush hua” still stays with us after all these years.
2. Gabbar from Sholay
This list is not complete without Gabbar from Sholay. Not only is Gabbar the most iconic Bollywood villain, but he is also the most iconic character so far.
3. Prem from Bobby
Played by Jack Braganze, Prem from Bobby was perhaps one of the most badass villains of Bollywood. Want someone to get scared with just his words? Then Prem is your man!
4. Crime Master Gogo from Andaz Apna Apna
Villains come in all shapes and sizes. Crime Master Gogo comes in the form of Shakti Kapoor. In fact, the most number of memes are made about him even 20 years after the release of Andaz Apna Apna,
5. Kaancha Gheena from Agneepath
Now this dude was a villain with class. Not only was he the bad guy but he was also the smart guy! Sanjay Dutt totally rocked this one, living up to all the expectations and comparisons
6. Langda Tyagi from Omkara
Saif Ali Khan totally pulled off the character of perhaps one of the last villains in Bollywood. Not only was Langda Tyagi evil, he was also rustically real. This was also probably Saif’s best acting to date!
7. Captian Andrew Russel from Lagaan
A movie like Lagaan could not have become such a huge hit if it didn’t have Captain Andrew Russel. The super mean firang trying to rob poor Indians was the icing on this amazing film.
8. Akbar from Mughal E Azam
All the films about the life of Akbar have shown him to be kind, just and full of compassion. In the midst of the good, there comes a movie like Mughal E Azam where Akbar completely slays the role of the evil father. He tries redeeming himself at the end of the movie but by then, it is too late.
9. Robert from Amar Akbar Anthony
Quite a modern name for a villain, right? The character of Robert was true to form throughout the film and has made a mark even over the years.
10. Birju from Mother India
At a time when there was a clear distinction between the hero and the villain, Sunil Dutt chose to play the role of Birju, the villain in Mother India. This, perhaps, is the best performance of Sunil Dutt!
Bollywood movies has given us a lot over the years. If you forgot about these villains, then it is time to binge watch and revisit some classics!

Karan Johar Responds To Drug Abuse Allegations
Three weeks after the drug abuse allegations were made on him, filmmaker Karan Johar finally broke his silence on the issue. The accusations came after a video shared by Karan Johar went viral on social media, which included many prominent celebrities of Bollywood like Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal.
In a recent interview with film critic Rajeev Masand, Karan Johar has called the accusations baseless and ridiculous. Karan Johar said in the interview “Apparently you are not allowed to scratch your nose. Apparently, you are not allowed to put your phone in your back pocket. Apparently, a shadow of light is perceived to be some kind of powder. There were achieving members of the industry who were having an easy night out after a hard week of work, having a good time. I took that video with all the earnestness. Would I be putting out that video if there was anything happening at all, I am not stupid. I don’t react very well to these baseless accusations because that’s what they were, baseless.”
Karan Johar further added that his mother was also present at the party and said “My mother, 5 minutes before this video, was sitting with us. It was that kind of a family, happy, social gathering, where friends were sitting and having a good time and we were listening to some music, having some good food and having good conversational energy there. There was nothing else going on”
Shiromani Akali Dal leader, Manjinder Singh SIrsa accused Karan Johar of hosting a drug-fuelled party and has requested the police to take action against the celebrities. None of the celebrities present in the video have commented on the situation till now.

National Award Winner Surekha Sikri Reveals She Suffered From Brain Stroke
Recently, winners of the 66th National Film Awards were announced. Actress Surekha Sikri won the award for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of a quarreling grandmother in the Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Badhaai Ho (2018.)
However, the 74 year old veteran actress is not working on any new project since almost 10 months now because of health reasons.

She added the doctors assured she will be alright soon.
The actress expressed her excitement about winning the National Film Award and said, “I think it should have won the Best Screenplay Award as well as the script is the king and today content rules. The film has a family drama with a universal appeal. Bahut gharon mein relationships kuch aise hi hote hai. I am humbled that kuch logon ne mujhe is laayak samjha to give me an award. I am quite thrilled. I realised that so many people love me and it is because of Badhaai Ho, I think. The first time I won the National Award for Tamas, I was over the moon. It was a huge deal. Winning such prestigious awards changes the way people look at you, think of you. More people want to work with you.”
