The favorite festival of the year is around the corner. This means that Santa Claus is probably on his way. Have you ever wondered who is hiding behind the large white beard and the red and white garments? No one can probably say. Santa could be anyone, even someone we know from a popular TV show or your favorite film! Can someone famous really be Santa in disguise? After all, Bollywood is full of secrets. But the cat is out of the bag now. Or almost. We have our doubts on who Santa could be from the Bollywood film industry.

Here are the celebrities who could really be Santa Claus in disguise:

Amitabh Bachchan

He was Shahenshah, and he also fooled people as Anthony with Amar and Akbar. Could Big B actually be Santa?

Rishi Kapoor

Santa is an old man with a young heart. So was Rishi Kapoor as Amarjeet Kapoor in Kapoor & Sons. To be fair, senior RK is the only one who could pull off such a big responsibility with ease.

Even though he is slightly on the leaner side, Naseer Sa’ab is very likely to have fooled us all along. The man certainly has a Santa Claus vibe, with all the smiles and love he keeps showering us with.

Boman Irani

After watching him play a character like Dr. Asthana in Munnabhai M.B.B.S, all we know is that his laugh can make us crack too. Could that really be Santa’s laugh?

Anupam Kher

He has played serious roles, funny roles, old roles and young roles. He is the definition of an ‘actor’. If someone who could play a Santa Claus for future roles, it has to be Mr. Kher.

Hope you have a merry Christmas and Santa shows you with lots of gifts. Don’t forget to share this list with your friends.
