Bollywood is often criticized for giving its hero much screen time. Often Bollywood movies are identified by their heroes. Idealizing the same philosophy, we come up with a list of Bollywood movies and their lead actors which you all may agree with.
1. Rab Ne Banaa Di Jodi – Moustache
Foreigners often point out that Indian movies often show a variety of mustaches. Aaditya Chopra is a visionary director and he cast Moustache in a lead role for his movie Rab Ne Banna Di Jodi. And yes, there was Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma was also in the movie.
2. Sooryavansham – Kheer
Amitabh Bachchan’s movie Sooryavansham got cult status after its continuous rerun on Set Max. The audience is smart and they understood well that the movie is a big hit not because of Amitabh Bachchan but the Kheer which gave a noteworthy conclusion in the climax.
3. Dilwale Dulhaniyan Le Jayenge – Bell
DDLJ is a big hit because of SRK and Kajol chemistry? Hell no. They wouldn’t even know that they have feelings for each other if there was no bell. Bell is the true hero of the movie. For instance, people visit theatres only to hear music produced by the bell.
4. Vivah – Jal
Shahid and Amrita were two kids romancing with the consent of families in the movie. They were not the heroes. It is the Jal that makes every scene memorable in the movie. With this now ‘Mujhe Haq hai’ to make my statement.
5. Shaadi Mein Jaroor Aana – IAS
There’s no better way to promote the status of IAS officers in society. The film is fun, filled with memorable moments, and got brilliant actors as supporting cast that includes Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Kharbanda. IAS is the lead. Isn’t it?
6. Dhamaal – Dev Kumar Malik
Dhamaal is one of the most loved comedy films in Bollywood. I’ll admit that – but what you like most about the movie. Vijay Raaz stole the show by delivering the sensational performance of Dev Kumar Malik.
7. Highway – Truck
Trucks often get good roles in Bollywood movies. Remember “Gadar Ek Prem Katha” Truck played a supporting role. Little you know the cameo of Truck along with Salman Khan in “Dhai Akshar Prem Ke”. However, Truck and Twinkle Khanna both stopped getting movie roles after Mela tanked at the box office. Finally, it got the lead role in Imtiaz Ali’s Highway and made a sensational comeback.
8. Dream Girl – Phone
Ayushmann Khurrana got the chance to share screen space with Superstar Phone in the movie Dream Girl. Writers confirmed that the story was inspired by real events, and they have written the whole script with Phone in their mind.
9. Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara – Ms. Bagwati
Forget Katrina and Kalki, the lead actress of the film was Ms. Bagwati. She got special attention from everyone in the movie and from the audience too.
10. Welcome – Majnu Bhai Painting
The welcome movie was star studded but the real dark horse was the painting of a horse having a donkey on its back. The lead actor of the movie is definitely that ‘horse loves donkey’ painting.
11. Dhoom – Bike
Admit it, we all remember the Dhoom movie because of the Bikes. Okay, Esha Deol yellow bikini too but that’s the heroine. Bikes are the bad boys that got everyone’s attention.
12. Jolly LLB 2 – Scooter
Fans were a bit skeptical about Jolly LLB 2 as the lead actor from the franchise was missing. However, the movie poster helped the fans to get relaxed when they saw Scooter in the lead role. Scooter revealed in an interview that they are very choosy with the scripts. Some of the popular movies include Rab Ne Banaa Di Jodi, 3 Idiots, Mrs. Scooter, etc.
13. Run – Siddharth’s Friend
Vijay Raaz has the ability to leave a long-lasting impact with small roles. Fun aside, we have huge respect for the actor as he made the ‘Kauaa Biryani scene’ more popular than the movie.
14. Chup Chup Ke – Bandya
Chup Chup Ke has many memorable funny scenes, and I bet most of them feature Rajpal Yadav. Rajpal Yadav outshines everyone in the movie and thus he is the lead actor of the movie.
15. Tirangaa – Fuse
We often talk about the actors after watching the movie. However, after watching Tirangaa, we talk about Gendaswami and the iconic Fuse scene. Again who was the hero? It’s the fuse.
