Gabbar Singh (Sholay), Mogambo (Mr. India), Dr. Dang (Tahelka) and Prem (Bobby) are some of the epic villains of all time. However, the bollywood baddies were always disliked by the people, whereas, the heroes were always appreciated. But with time, the perspective of audiences has changed and actors who play bad guys don’t face the burden of being typecast anymore. And that has led to some amazing performances by actors in villainous characters. Here are 7 of them…


1. Ranveer Singh – Padmaavat

Ranveer Singh shocked all his fans when the first look from Padmaavat was released. He has gone from playing a charming boy in Band Baaja Baaraat to playing Allauddin Khilji in Pdmaavat. He really did an outstanding job and saved a place in all our hearts.


2. Bhallaladeva – Baahubali

While Prabhas made several women swoon over the character he played in Baahubali, it was hard not to fall in love with Rana Daggubati’s role. His presence on the screen, stellar performance and fierce look made many women go weak in their knees.


3. Nawazuddin – Kick, Badlapur

3. Nawazuddin – Kick, Badlapur

Nawazuddin Siddiqui made us love him in the Salman Khan starrer Kick. He stole the show with his evil laugh and the ease that he plays his characters with is one to notice. He won us over again in the Varun Dhawan starrer Badlapur!


4. Neil Nitin Mukesh – Wazir, 7 Khoon Maaf, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Players, Golmaal Again

With blue eyes dark brown hair and a charming smile, Neil Nitin Mukesh came in the industry and played several chocolaty boy roles unless he discovered that there’s more to him. Playing anti-hero in films like Wazir and 7 Khoon Maaf, the actor became the talk of town and with small roles he bowled us over.


5. Jim Sarbh – Padmaavat, Neerja

Ranveer Singh wasn’t alone in Padmaavat, he had Malik Kafur to be his bad buddy. Jim Sarbh debuted in Neerja, and who doesn’t remember that performance?


6. Vidyut Jammwal – Force, Baadshaho

6. Vidyut Jammwal – Force, Baadshaho

He is a trained martial artist, a complete badass and has all the ingredients to play that bad guy you’d fall in love with. He has also played positive roles, but we love him Force and Baadshaho.
