We are halfway through 2017, and Bollywood has not yet given us a blockbuster. This week, with the comeback of Sridevi onscreen, 2017 might finally receive its smash hit. Mom has created a lot of expectations and we are sure the powerhouse of talent that Sridevi is, she would definitely own this year. Alongside the dark and mysterious thriller Mom, another movie to hit theatres this week is Kartik Aaryan’s Guest Iin London, starring Paresh Rawal, where he once again plays the unwanted guest (Remember Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?).
Comedy in Bollywood is nothing without the likes of Paresh Rawal. The man brings fresh energy with each character that he adorns on screen. Known for his comic timing, Rawal has innumerable hits to his credit. Here are some of the immortal characters Paresh Rawal did complete justice to, which got us rolling on the floor with laughter not once, or twice, but every single time we watched him.
Andaz Apna Apna (1994)
Ram Gopal Bajaj or Teja – who is your favorite? This cult film is a double treat for audiences, as Paresh Rawal tickles your funny bones in a double role.
Hasmukhlal is an obnoxiously inquisitive man, with a question mark on his forehead. One of the best comic performances in Bollywood, Paresh Rawal shines in this character.
Hera Pheri (2000)
Who can forget Baburao Ganpat Apte – the eccentric character in Hera Pheri? No matter how many times you watch this film, Baburao always cracks you up.
Awaara Paagal Deewana (2002)
Remember Johnny Lever as Chotta Chatri and Paresh Rawal as Manilal? It is one of the best comedy scenes in the history of Bollywood.
When it is Priyadarshan, you know the kind of comedy you will be served. Here, Paresh Rawal played the role of a Brahmachari, who gets secretly married, without the permission of his father.
The multi-talented actor never fails to impress us. We can't wait to see him in Guest Iin London as a Bin Bulaya Mehmaan.
