16 Bollywood Supporting Actors who deserve to act in a lead role.
Deepak Dobriyal has played the hero’s best friend in many moviesin movies like Omkara and Tanu Weds Manu. his class can be seen from the 2 roles, the variety he brings one for a comedy role & other with a dark background.
He started of well with Mohabbatein & did some movies that did not work much since then he has been playing second-fiddle to second-rate romantic leads in movies. Though he has been a star in Punjabi movies for years. But he has always minted his performance in whateveer role he was offered.
He is the one of the greatest comedians of this generation, his comic timing & dialogue delivery plus the innocence that he puts in his role is just mesmerizing. He did some lead role as an insecure husband in “Main, Meri Patni Aur Woh” which was also praiseworthy. but still he doesn’t fit according to the definition of a hero.
She put up great performances in roles in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Veer-Zaara, She was last seen in Badlapur. She should have got better chances to work but she is out of films almost for 5 years now.
Piyush Mishra is a multi-talented treasure. His writing and singing are also just as exemplary as his acting skills. He writes beautiful poems & is a great comic as well as a serious actor see his performances in Gangs of Wasseypur. However he too never got much opportunity as a lead actor.
Seema Bhargava Pahwa
While many people would remember her as Badki on Hum Log, she has been playing mom to a whole bunch of people in the last few years in Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Ankhon Dekhi, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, and Barreilly Ki Barfi.
Tripathi has played memorable characters as Atma Singh in Newton, Bitti’s dad in Barreilly Ki Barfi, and Sultan Qureshi in Gangs Of Wasseypur. Who’s to say he can’t hold his own in a lead?
Ratna Pathak Shah
She was popular for her serial Sarabhai VS Sarabhai. She has put up great performances in movies like Kapoor 7 Sons & Lipstick Under My Burkha where she could be said to be in the lead but thats all, nothing more.
She has played role of a mom in many movies like Ram-Leela, Wake Up Sid, and Love Per Square Foot. she was even popular for her performances in TV serial Khichdi. however she too lacked chances to work as a leading lady.
This man is just amazing, give him any role be it comedy, serious anything he will nail it with a great perormance. Sure, he was the lead in Ankhon Dekhi but his performances in movies like Anarkali Of Aarah and many other movies is all the proof you need that this man deserves way more screen time worthy of his talent.
He has been the sidekick for years in movies like Lootera, Half Girlfriend, and Dil Dhadakne Do. “A Death In The Gunj “ however did give him quite the limelite but lets see what more does he get to do in the coming years.
You may remember him as the goon from Delhi Belly or the sleazy-but-well-meaning wedding planner from Monsoon Wedding. You might remember him from the funny “Kauwa biryani” scene from the movie Run. He had a lot of potential but did never get a chance.
He is FLOURISHING in multiple film industries across the country. But, Bollywood clearly hasn’t tapped into this man’s soft side as much. He should be given more roles like Iruvar or OK Kanmani?
Tisca Chopra is best known for her role in Taare Zameen Par. But, a look at her lead roles in short films in the last few years will give you an idea of how good she could be if given the chance to lead her own movie.
Annu Kapoor has been on the scene supporting Bollywood leads for over 30 years. We remember him as the irritable boss in Mr. India, the host for Antakshari, and even the doctor from Vicky Donor.
We’ve all been incredibly afraid of his characters in Dushman and Sangharsh but his role as the softie-on-the-inside dad in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania reminds me why he’s such a convincing actor. More of him, please.
