Unpredictable And Unexpected Betrayals In Popular Films.

While Betrayals are one of the most hurtful things in the real world, it happens to be something that truly spices up the game in the reel life! Believe it or not, the classics betrayals are truly the most powerful essence of any suspense film.

Right!? So, without beating much around the bush, today with this post, we have come across some of the most classic betrayals in Bollywood movies that no one could have ever thought of! Let’s have a look:

Katrina Kaif in Race

Though you might have awful memories of this series after the release of its third installment, we can certainly not deny the success and excellence of its first installment. The movie Race gained immense popularity for its unique and mind-twisting plot.

Not only this, but the film was also well praised for the diversity of characters especially the character of Katrina Kaif which no one could have predicted in the first place! While we already had an idea about the cunning character of Akshaye Khanna, the classic betrayal by Katrina was something that no one saw coming!


Now this movie was a perfect blend of love, money, and confusion as to who is with whom. While we were already aware of the plan made by the duo of Akshaye and Ameesha in the film, it certainly came as a surprise that he was ready to betray his love, Ameesha just for the sake of money! Well, someone has truly said, “Baap bada na bhaiya, sabse bada rupaiya!”

Kareena Kapoor in Fida

Well, looks like Kareena Kapoor was not only a honeytrap for Shahid in real life but in reel life too! Yes, none of us could have ever imagined that a cute-looking character of Kareena in the film would turn out to be the master planner of the whole film and would end up ruining the lives of everyone!

Kabir Bedi in Khoon Bhari Maang

One of the best examples of betrayals so far happens to be in the movie Khoon Bhari Maang. Starring Rekha and Kabir Bedi in the lead roles, this movie showcased one of the cruelest revenge stories. The actor Kabir Bedi pushed Rekha into a lake with crocodiles to kill her and get hold of her property.

However, things were in the favor of Rekha and she saved just to seek revenge on Kabir and let him pay for his sins. However, the classic betrayal by Kabir was something that no one saw coming! 

Urmila in Kaun?

A psychological suspense thriller starring Manoj Bajpayee and Urmila in the lead roles, this film was the one that no one could have ever imagined the ending for! While we all were suspecting Manoj to be the real killer, it blasted the minds of audiences with the revelation of Urmila being a psychopath killer at the end of the film!

Ileana D’Cruz in Baadshaho

Set in the emergency era of 1975–77, the character of Ileana was loosely based upon Gayatri Devi, the third Maharani consort of Jaipur from 1940 to 1949. While the character of Ileana was initially depicted to be the one in distress who was seeking the help of Ajay Devgn along with his crew, turns out to be the real villain towards the end. 

Bipasha Basu in Ajnabee

Right from its songs to characters to the mind-twisting plot, this movie was a complete entertainment package that unveils its true cards towards the end of the film.

While “everything was planned” in the movie and we all have made up our minds of Akshay Kumar being the real killer of his wife, Bipasha falsely blaming Bobby, it comes as a real shocker to see her alive and be a partner in crime with Akshay Kumar towards the end of the film. The film was certainly about a series of betrayals that left all of us in complete shock!! 

Pankaj Kapur in Dus

While we already have an innocent yet funny image of the actor in our minds, certainly because of the kinds of roles he has played so far, this movie was certainly the one that left us in a complete state of shock.

We all assumed the character of Pankaj just to be included for the comical elements in the film, however, as the film progressed, he was the one who turned out to be the real master in the film. 

Aishwarya Rai in Khakee

It’s certainly recommended not to go by the mesmerizing looks and cute smile of this actress in the film! Yes, while the actress initially came up as an innocent personality seeking help from Amitabh and his squad, it blew off our minds to see her as the real villain betraying everyone especially Akshay Kumar, who happens to fall for the actress. She was the one who was involved with Ajay Devgn. 

Saif Ali Khan in Ek Haseena Thi

The character of Saif was a real betrayer for the main antagonist of Urmila in the film. 

Saif Ali Khan (again) in Kurbaan

The cute love story of Kareena and Saif in the initial part of the film was a delightful experience to watch.

However, things get worse as the duo gets married and the cards unveil to depict Saif as a real betrayer for both the audience and his reel and real-life wife, Kareena. 

Naseeruddin Shah in Mohra

Who could have thought of a fragile blind man to be a real culprit? Well, the character of Nasruddin Shah in the film was one of the most unimaginative betrayal characters that we could ever think of!! 

Bipasha Basu in Jism

Looks like Bipasha Basu cannot be trusted upon! Well, not in real life of course, but in the reel life. In the film Jism, she was depicted as the one who was leading a passionless marriage and ended up luring John with lust only to use and dupe him!
