    Kancha, Mogambo, Gabbar, Shakal…the greatest villains of Bollywood cinema

    Kancha, Mogambo, Gabbar, Shakal…the greatest villains of Bollywood cinema

    Bollywood’s bad guys have better lines, better outfits, better babes, more gadgets and way more fun before they go out in the climax reel with a bang
    Agneepath, the first success of 2012, firmly establishes the return of that Hindi movie staple—the villain. For almost two decades, the director trinity of Sooraj Barjatya, Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra, who championed family values and pretty people in love, had effectively banished the baddie from Bollywood.

    There is more than one reason why we think the Bodyguard actor should lap up the opportunity to bring out the dark side inside him
    We don’t know how true this fresh piece of goss is, but just hearing it got us excited. And if it does come true, it will make things really interesting. According to trade buzz, Yash Raj Films has big plans for the Dhoom franchise. Apparently, Vijay Acharya, the write and director of Dhoom 3, has been using his free time (Dhoom 3’s shooting schedule has been pushed to mid-2012 because of Aamir Khan’s over-packed diary) to complete the script for Dhoom 4.
