The 19th Edition of IIFA will take place sometime in the middle of the New Year. Although the nominations haven’t been announced, the year is coming to a close and one can make a few predictions for the nominations to come. Here is a short list of predictions for actors in a negative role who have made a mark this year with their performances.

1. Jugal Hansraj as Mohit Dewan in Kahaani 2

Moviegoers must not be aware that the Masoom kid from the 1980’s is the same actor who has played the role of a paedophile in the dark thriller Kahaani 2 this year. He was surprisingly effective as a creepy uncle in the film. He was convincing to audiences as an evil man that needs to be stopped.

2. Shah Rukh Khan as Gaurav Chandna in Fan

Although SRK’s movie didn’t do so well at the box office, he sure did make the audience a fan of his character Gaurav Chandna, an obsessive fan of a superstar in his movie. His acting was the most controlled and well delivered in the film. The fierce obsession of the character was dark and mysterious and surely deserves a nod for IIFA.

3. Angad Bedi as Rajveer Singh in Pink

The courtroom thriller Pink has Angad Bedi playing a very convincing villain. The controversial movie had audiences hating his character Rajveer every time he appeared on screen. The patriarchal character portrayal deserves a nomination for awards as well.

Besides these roles there were others that are also well-deserving such as Jim Sarabh as Khalil in Neerja, Taher Raj Bhasin as Shiv Sharma in Force 2, Anurag Kashyap as an ACP in Akira and Shreedhar Babu as Raghav in Baaghi, amongst others.
