In Bollywood, there are typically three types of characters – the hero, the villain, and the others. The hero or villain is usually played by a mainstream actor known for his good looks, while the latter’s roles are given to professionals for their exceptional acting skills. Hardik Mehta’s 2020 film Kaamyaab perfectly described these actors as the “aalu” of cinema – put them in any role and you get a perfect treat. Most supporting actors in Bollywood have earned their fame from acting in comedy roles. Their ability to make us laugh in any situation and even steal the spotlight from the lead hero has made them stand out in the industry. Over the years, we have found such gems in Kader Khan, Irrfan Khan, Viju Khote, Mehmood, Johnny Walker, Jagdeep and more whose legacy remains eternal even after their death. Among the living, here are some comedy actors who always put a smile on our faces.
