Can Salman Khan recreate Ajith’s villainy in ‘Zanjeer’?

Posted Fri, February 24, 2012 3:03pm IST

Over the years, Bollywood produced great actors who brought to life some of the most iconic villains of Hindi cinema. But who today can do justice to those roles in remakes?

Think Bollywood and you may envision chiffon saris and kissing flowers, but Hindi films have produced some great villains too. Sometimes they’ve impeded young love, but many-a-time they have also caused massive destruction in the life of young heroes. These arch-baddies have become iconic and are as oft-quoted as a Jai or a Veeru. What makes them so special? Why do today’s filmmakers get tempted to bring these bad people back to life? There was Don, with Shahrukh Khan doing his take on Amitabh Bachchan’s character. Just recently we had Kancha Cheena – the suave, urbane drug smuggler first created by Mukul S Anand and Danny Denzongpa in the 1990 film Agneepath was resurrected as an unsophisticated, ugly, evil incarnate by Karan Malhotra and Sanjay Dutt. There’s a lot of buzz about the type of villain Salman Khan will play in the sequel of Mr India, since Amrish Puri did such an impressive job in the original. We take a look at the iconic villains of Bollywood and give you our first choice for their resurrection….

    I think the industry should look at this character in Rangrezz who played the crazy father of the lead heroin and is obsessed with government jobs. He could be a great villain if given the right chance. He also played the bad guy in No One Killed Jessica as the corrupt Minister.
