As Bollywood lovers in India like to deal with absolutes, they relate an actor with a certain role, character and only envision like that. For Example, Iftekhar has always been a policeman and Nirupa Roy has been a mother. It’s very easy, right? To typecast in Bollywood!
However, as the time changes, the actors are also fascinating their roles scratching deeper than the surface.
Scroll down to see some of the brilliant performances that completely changed their perception regarding those particular ones.
Shahrukh Khan in Chak De India
King Khan, Baadash of Bollywood had enough gained his name in the role playing of best son and lover. Regardless of not being so expressive in ‘Swades’, the Baadash came with a brilliant performance in Shimit Amin’s Chak De India. In this movie, SRK’s performance as Kabir Khan didn’t give a false note to the audience.
Varun Dhawan in Badlapur
Having been debuted in Karan Johar’s Student Of the Year and then following his dad’s film Main Tera Hero, no one would have imagined that the decent lover guy will play the role of an aggressive man. The aggressive look in Sriram Raghavan’s Badlapur changed the perception of the audience. That was damn impressive one! Not only Dhawan but also, Nawazuddin Siddiqui completely nailed it. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the best actor in today’s generation.
Hrithik Roshan in Guzarish
After his failure in his International movie Kites, Hrithik thought that his career is dropping down! Bravo! His quadriplegic magician performance in Guzarish mesmerized everyone.
Alia Bhatt in Udta Punjab
The cutest little girl of Bollywood, Alia Bhatt turned her image upside down by playing the role of Bihari immigrant worker in Udta Punjab.
Shahid Kapoor in Haider
Shahid Kapoor peaked his acting career up in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider. Playing the role of Kashmiri version of Shakespeare’s Helmet, finally reached a rich lineage of his father Pankaj Kapur.
Deepika Padukone in Piku
From being a model to an actress, she had to face this usual plastic criticism in her initial movies. Besides her films, she finally came up carrying her film by own in Shoojit Sircar’s Piku. In Piku, Deepika brought the everyday urban from working woman to a successful daughter, as she takes care of her father and looks for a life partner at the same time.
Manoj Bajpayee in Aligarh
The man is only known for playing Masculine roles like in Satya, Shool, did an unthinkable emotion by playing the role of a homosexual in Aligarh.

The man even received the winner as the Best Actor Award for Aligarh.
Rani Mukherji in Black
In her 10 years career in the industry, she shined in the role of Michelle McNally; a modeled biological film based on the story of Helen Keller. Nevertheless, Bhansali would have gone sentimental; but he provided Rani Mukerji one of her best roles.
Amitabh Bachchan in Paa
Turning to 60s; Big B played the role of a 13-year-old Auro in Paa; who suffered from Progeria. Director R Balki managed to extract Big B’s performance from the superstar. Abhishek Bachchan played the role of Amitabh Bachchan’s father; a real father to being his reel father.
Priyanka Chopra in Barfi
One of the glamorous beauties in Bollywood, Priyanka Chopra nailed her every performance. But, the most exciting character in her career was in Anurag Basu’s Barfi; where she played an autistic character. Short and curly hair and there was hardly a dialogue to communicate with her muted deaf/ dumb husband (aka Ranbir Kapoor), turned out to the most thrilling performance in her industry.
Rishi Kapoor in Kapoor & Sons
Rishi Kapoor, the always smiling man in his good old days. He started his career in Ekta Kapoor’s Kuch Toh Hai. Since then, he never failed the audience to entertain. His performance as Daddu in Shakun Batra’s Kapoor & Sons was simply mind blowing.
Kudos! Awaited for more such brilliant performances!
