Bollywood is always ready to churn out brand new characters for us with its ever new stories. While some of them are taken right from real life, many of the on-screen characters are fine works of imagination. But how many of them are people that we would actually bump into? Nobody is perfect but some characters of Bollywood were so much beyond perfection that we secretly wished they would just start being humans!
1. Vivek in Hum Saath Saath Hain
If there has been a beta that every maa would pray for, it’s Vivek (Mohnish Bahl) from Hum Saath Saath Hain. But, when he was chucked out of the house with his pregnant wife, we really think he should have stood up!
2. Arohi in Aashiqui 2
Though every guy would secretly wish for a girlfriend like that, someone who accepts their flaws even if it means dying in the pool of alcohol, but let’s do a reality check, nobody has that sort of tolerance.
3. Vanraj in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
Love is blind and true love only seeks the happiness of the other. We saw a glimpse of this ethereal love when Vanraj (Ajay Devgn) takes a pledge to unite Nandini with her love, Sameer. Cut to real life, would you or anyone do it?
4. Rawal Ratan Singh in Padmaavat
Even Khilji was amazed at Rawal Ratan Singh’s achhe usool and so are we. But someone could have been saved had Ratan Singh (Shahid Kapoor) kept the usool aside and for once, been political. We know you agree with this.
5. Raju in Bandhan
Do you remember the “Jo Jijaji Kahenge Main Wo Hi Karunga” dialogue where Salman Khan is the most obedient and affectionate brother in law in the world? The character of Raju was one from a utopian world where someone’s loyalty towards his sister’s husband surpasses real life.
6. Mastani in Bajirao Mastani
Nothing amazes us more than the sheer love and dedication to her beloved, embedded in the character of Mastani (Deepika Padukone). In love, she endures all the insults, lewd judgments and number of attacks and eventually tells her son to be exactly like her father once she is a captive. Such passion is not something the real world could handle.
7. Raju in Beta
There comes a good son and then there comes Raju (Anil Kapoor) in Beta, another son that every mother would secretly hope for. The love and trust endowed in his mother surpass all, even his newlywed wife, to the extent of being exploited in the hands of his own mother. What love!
8. Poonam in Vivah
Though everyone in the movie is the height of all things good, the winner is Poonam (Amrita Rao), for sure. The extent of insult and hatred that this lady faces due to her Chachi would make anyone weep for her. But this one was not born to bend, at least not to hatred. On her own wedding day, she chooses to put her cousin first and rest is all history.
9. Ram in Dhadhkan
Come to real life and what are the chances that you will marry someone who accepts you despite you being in love with someone else? Ram (Akshay Kumar), the doting son, and a husband has no qualms about Anjali being unaffectionate. A man who is ready to give time to his newlywed wife and a son who loves being fooled by his stepfamily, this one is on a whole new spiritual level. How can someone be so good?
10. Arjun in Namastey London
Though we understand, we still don’t know if he falls in love with Jasmeet (Katrina Kaif) or the idea of settling in London, but the guy really keeps us in tears as he prepares to his lawful wife (who also happens to fool him into marriage) get married to her boyfriend. Helping the love of your life get engaged to someone else and going through it, boy, that sort of love doesn’t happen these days.
Well, even if these characters were good beyond limits, their goodness was exactly what made us fall in love with them! Bollywood surely makes us keep our faith in goodness alive!
