Famous Side Characters In Bollywood Who Deserve Their Own Movies


Recent Bollywood movies are not just about a hero, a heroine, and a villain. Many actors are working as side actors in the movies.

While most of the movies are centered on heroes, some character actors came into the limelight because of their acting skills and their character arc.

Even though they are not in the limelight, they stole the show and the audience ended up asking for more screen-time for the characters.

Raja Awasthi From Tanu Weds Manu

Tanu Weds Manu made Kangana Ranaut a star actress in Bollywood. All the characters in the movie are written very well.

People demanded to see more of Deepak Dobriyal’s Pappi Ji, Swara Bhaskar’s Payal, Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub’s irritating Kumar Singh.

Well, fans also think Raja Awasthi from the Tanu Weds Manu series is fabulous and deserves a solo movie.

Probably, he will be able to get the girl in his solo spin-off.

Rohit From Kal Ho Na Ho

Kal Ho Na Ho is all about Aman did this and Aman did that. The chemistry of Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta created the magic on screen.

However, Saif Ali Khan steals the limelight from the main characters as well.

He was as adorable as sweet and funny Rohit in the movie. A movie from his perspective would be an interesting watch.

Moeen Arif From Gully Boy

Vijay Varma got some recognition in the industry after playing the gritty character of Moeen Arif in the Rap-drama Gully Boy.

Varun Sharma as Choocha is one of the most interesting comics characters ever created in Bollywood movies.

He has a good bromance with his friend Sunny throughout the movie.

Moreover, he has a love story arc in the film with Bholi Panjaban as well.

Even though the Fukrey Series is focused on Choocha & the team, people want a standalone movie of Choocha.

Babloo Pandit From Mirzapur

Mirzapur is one of the most-watched Indian Web series. The story revolves around two brothers Guddu Pandit and Babloo Pandit who are living the American dream in Mirzapur city.

However, people didn’t like the ending of Mirzapur season one when Munna Tripathi blew Babloo’s head. Fans are demanding the spin-off or alternate ending of the series.

Maanav From Dhamaal

Maanav is the most hilarious character in the Dhamaal series.
