These actors have gone ahead and gotten inked to suit their filmi characters

Quite a few actors like Sonakshi Sinha, Arjun Kapoor,  Saif Ali Khan, Akshay Kumar would have seen a variety of B-town celebs flaunting their artistic epidermal possessions in real life but we give you a list of actors who sported temporary ink-work for their hit films!

Sidharth Malhotra for Ek Villain: Although we couldn’t decode the meaning of the rectangular tattoo on the Hasee Toh Phasee actor’s forearm which caught our attention when Ek Villain’s poster was released, we were pretty convinced that this actor has put his mushy blue-eyed boy days behind him and revamped his personality to be the new villain on the block. He is now the raggedy man, sporting a rugged stubble with eyes spelling danger. Boy! We are smitten by Sidharth’s new avatar, what about you Bollywoodlifers?

Priyanka Chopra for Ram chahe Leela number in Ram-Leela: PeeCee was seen donning a white Anju Modi creation in the video and guess what stole our breath away. That sexy tattoo right under her blouse! Rumour mills were set atwitter as everybody thought that after Daddy’s Little Girl this is Piggy Chops’ latest ink adventure. But we were sadly mistaken to find out that she sported the tattoo exclusively for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film. Itna hi nahi, the I Can’t Make You Love Me singer spent ten hours getting that complex tattoo painted on her hot bod! Well on behalf of the innumerable fans who drooled over her Ram-Leela look we’d like to say that the Barfi! actor should get that tattoo permanently inked on her abs!

Ranbir Kapoor for Yeh Jawaani hai Deewani: Ranboo borrowed the title for his temporary tattoo from his grandfather Raj Kapoor’s 1951 classic by the same name. He flaunted his inked throughout promotional and publicity events of YJHD and washed it off when the film was out for the viewers to enjoy. We always wonder why the Rockstar actor wasn’t daring like his ex-girlfriend to have gotten inked. Perhaps one loved the other a little less or maybe he was just playing it safe. Jo bhi ho, the decision to not get permanently inked paid off!

Anushka Sharma for Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola: Our hearts skipped a beat when this sweltering seductress stepped out of water in her intro scene in the Vishal Bhardwaj film. We gaped at her sexy lower back and asked, “Could this be real?” Sadly it wasn’t real. We are talking about the Dekho Magar Pyaar se tattoo Anushka sported on her back for the Imran Khan-Pankaj Kapur starrer MKBKM. She got temporary ink-work done on her lower back to titillate the audience and grab eyeballs in a wink on an eye!

Deepika Padukone for Dum Maaro Dum’s item song: Recently, we told you about how Dippy’s RK tattoo magically disappeared from the back of her neck probably because the epidermal love that was lost pinched the sultry actor a little too much. If only she could alter the RK into an RS! *wink wink* Most likely the leggy lass would have wished for it be a temporary one while undergoing the painful laser removal procedure. The Ram-Leela star sported a fake tattoo for her item song in the film Dum Maaro Dum paired with a sexy little halter neck bikini top and a shredded short skirt. We just couldn’t get our eyes off the intricate tattoo on her sexy kamariya, which made Deepika look like a hippie in the music video.
