It is well said that a good actor can rise above a script that’s mediocre. But some actors are so good that they don’t even need a mediocre script and manage to shine in whatever role they’re told to put themselves into. Today we’re especially going to talk about such actors who are so good but still Bollywood has no idea what to do with such talent. These actors that we’re going to list down now have way more potential than any other actor but still, they don’t get the kind of roles they deserve.
So here we present you the list of those 10 Bollywood actors who need to be seen in much better roles.
1. Javed Jaffrey
This man is a whole package, he can dance, rap, and act better than any other actor of his age. Who’ll say that he turned 50 years old because he looks just half his age. His acting in the film “Salaam Namaste” and “Dhamaal” is still one of his memorable acts till now. Even though he’s a good actor, he’s seen once in a while in some movie as a supporting character with minimum lines which is not what we want.
2. Atul Kulkarni
Anyone who saw the film “Rang De Basanti” knows what this man is capable of and what he can bring to the table. But still, after so many years of hard work, his acting skill is kept to a limit and he’s not given many opportunities.
3. Kay Kay Menon
Out of others, Kay Kay Menon still got a better-deserved role in the film “Haider”. But still, after having such a great talent, he should get more films like this as he appears on the screen once in many years.
4. Aparshakti Khurrana
Ayushmann Khurrana’s beloved brother is also a great actor and is no less than his brother. We’ve seen him in many movies like Stree, Pati Patni Aur Woh, Street Dancer 3, etc, but always in side roles. Bollywood should soon consider these real talents for better opportunities.
5. Rajat Barmecha
Rajat Barmecha surely won millions of hearts with his tremendous acting as a troubled teenager in the film “Udaan”. His way of essaying that role was just neat but it saddens us when we realize that he vanished from Bollywood because after then as he wasn’t getting any movies.
6. Piyush Mishra
Piyush Mishra is well known for the way he delivers his dialogue. Maybe his role was very less in the film “Gangs of Wasseypur”, but the way he portrayed it is commendable and he managed to shine with a small role too.
7. Anand Tiwari
His movies like Udaan and Go Goa Gone have been praised for their exceptional concepts. He has done many movies after that but his role wasn’t that fine enough and it didn’t really showcase his potential which he has.
8. Gulshan Devaiah
His acting skills are not hidden from anyone and over the past years, we’ve seen his improvement. He did movies like Hate Story, Hunter, Ram-Leela, etc, and he really did outshine in those roles. But his small roles are just a waste of his skill.
9. Vijay Raaz
Vijay Raaz is well known for his comic timing in films like Welcome, Run(2004), etc. Viewers really witnessed him for his epic comedy and even today his role as Petticoat Baba in Run is remembered. But due to a lack of great script, we don’t see much of him nowadays.
10. Ashutosh Rana
In the 90s he was more famous as the villain on screen and after his role as Lajja Shankar in the film “Sangharsh”, he gained mass popularity. No one can even compete to his role and his acting skills were much praised. But after that, he only got supporting roles in films which didn’t really compliment him.
