9 Actors Who Played COP Character Brilliantly.

The recent trend of making films centering on cop dramas has been one of the most trending things that the makers have been following. While we truly love the action and the uniformed heroes, the recently released film Suryavanshi has made the audiences more anxious about which all actors would be seen in the uniform next. And to spice up things even more the actor Pankaj Tripathi is reported to be seen playing the role of a cop in the upcoming Bunty and Babli 2. While we have witnessed various uniformed artists over the years, it’s time to look back at some of the brilliant actors who astounded the audiences with their realistic performances that give us a peek at how uniformed officials are actually in real life. Scroll down below for some offbeat cop characters over the years: 

Arshad Warsi in Sehar

While each one of us is already aware of how underrated this actor has been, various brilliant films have been skipped by the audiences starring this actor. And amongst such classics, the 2005 Indian crime drama film Sehar starring Arshad Warsi in the role of a cop named SSP Ajay Kumar, happens to be one of the best performances of the actor. Rated as 7.7 on IMDB, the film included an ensemble cast of various actors in uniforms. Surrounding the real-life events and incidents and depicting organized crimes in the state of Uttar Pradesh, the film brilliantly portrayed how the state police work towards tackling the issues.

Rani Mukherjee in Mardaani

Probably no one could have ever imagined this side of the actress Rani Mukherjee until we saw her playing the role of a strict and bold cop in the Mardaani installments. The extreme energy and efforts held by the actress for this role were something beyond our expectations and emerged as one of the brilliant cop characters of all time. Tracking down the criminals in her unique ways, the physical and personality changes adapted by the actress to get into the skin of the crime branch officer, senior inspector, Shivani Shivaji Roy was something beyond words. 

Shefali Shah in Delhi Crime

Emerging as one of the brilliant actresses of the industry over the years, Shefali Shah started her career with a brief role in the film Rangeela. While we all witnessed her in a variety of supporting roles, her performance in the Netflix web series, Delhi Crime in the role of DCP Vartika Chaturvedi was certainly beyond everyone’s expectations. Becoming a major turn point for her life, her character in the series was based on Police DCP Chaya Sharma, who cracked a sensitive case within 72 hours. Acing her role in the boots of this strong character, Shefali Shah emerged as one of the brilliant actresses of all time. 

Aamir Khan in Sarfarosh

Witnessing the actor Aamir Khan in uniform for the movie Talaash was a great experience for the viewers unless it’s compared to his breathtaking performance in Sarfarosh. Marking its release in 1999 this Indian action drama film by John Mathew marathon had the actor Aamir Khan playing the role of ACP Ajay Kumar Rathod whose energetic performance and brilliance of the uniform role can never be matched with anyone else in life. Emerging out as one of the brilliant uniform characters played by the actor, Aamir Khan was highly praised for his offbeat cop role in the film.

Manoj Pahwa in Dabangg 2

Why you all might have been wondering about the actor Salman Khan to be named on this list for his brilliance in the cop role in Dabangg installments, the Babli character of Salman in the film failed to connect the audiences with some realistic cops. It was rather the actor Manoj Pahwa who looked a bit more convincing in the role of commissioner SP Anand Mathur. While the actor has certainly lent a major contribution to the entertainment industry, the offbeat performance of the actor in a uniformed role was truly blissful.

Kay Kay Menon in Black Friday

Marking its release in 2004, this crime film happened to be an exceptional work by Anurag Kashyap. While various characters still happen to be an all-time favorite, the actor Kay Kay Menon, took the attention of people following his brilliant performance in the role of DCP Rakesh Maria. A witty character aced by the actor made the audiences relate deeply to the cop world. 

Manoj Bajpayee in Special 26

“Sirji, asli kaam to yeh hi kr rhe hain, hum toh bas apni..!” Remember how cunningly the actor Manoj Bajpayee was outsmarted by Akshay Kumar towards the end of the film Special 26? Remaining scared and devastated for life, Manoj Bajpayee’s extravagant performance in the character of CBI Officer Waseem Khan happens to be one of the brilliant ones to date. 

Girish Kulkarni & Ranvir Shorey in Sunflower

While most of us might still have no idea about the existence of this series, its brilliance can certainly not be overlooked upon. With an ensemble cast of some brilliant actors of the industry, this series had the actors Girish Kulkarni and Ranvir Shorey foraying as cops which are truly beyond words. With having Sunil Grover in the lead role, this series was rated as 7.5 on IMDB and included Girish Kulkarni as Sub Inspector Chetan Tambe with Ranvir Shorey as Inspector S. Digendra. The extravagant performance of these actors made this worth giving a shot!

Tabu in Drishyam

Who could forget the brilliant trap and story weaved Ajay Devgn in the film? Making us all believe about his vacation plans, the dilemma and pain held by the strong cop Tabu can certainly not be neglected. With a brilliant rating of 8.2 on IMDb, this film was the remake of a South film of the same name. Having the actress Tabu being seen in the role of IGP Meera Deshmukh, the actress nailed the role of a stern police officer and mother which was truly remarkable.
