If Bollywood Actors Played Themselves in Movies

Acting is all about playing someone you are not and making the viewers believe you are that character. There are many brilliant actors in our industry that make us believe in almost every character they play. However, this does not mean that the king of romance will always be in his romantic avatar visiting dream locations and romancing his lady love. Neither will Sallu Bhai be perpetually fighting crime and saving his family. Every actor has his or her own personality and a skill that helps them transform into someone else. But what if they refuse to be someone else in some of the movies? Will it be a disaster or another epic? Very interesting, right? This is how we picture the scenario will be:

Aamir Khan, Dangal

Aamir Khan would just let his girls choose the career they want to and would make sure that they are getting everything they need, instead of trying to fulfill his own dream vicariously. Also, Mahaveer Phogat will never become as bulky.

Ranveer Singh, Dil Dhadakne Do

If Ranveer Singh played himself here, the film probably wouldn't have happened, at least with him as a part of the cast. Because the elite Mehra family would disown him just for his fashion choices.

Kangana Ranaut, Queen

If Kangana were to play Rani, after Vijay ditched her she'll start calling him as her stupid ex in all her conversations and just move on with her life to look for "the man who is better than the one before".

Shah Rukh Khan, Fan

If SRK would play himself in Fan, well that he did, it will all be almost the same only with CBFC requesting for more than a few cuts to reduce the smoking scenes. He'll also get Gaurav arrested much before he creates all that chaos.

Sonam Kapoor, Neerja

In Neerja, Sonam Kapoor would not last long in the hijacked flight as the terrorists will kill her to make her stop talking about their bad fashion sense, crappy clothes and shoes that don't match their outfits.

Salman Khan, Bajrangi Bhaijaan

Sallu Bhai would just ask a few of his kite-flying friends to look into Munni's matter and send her to Pakistan after broadcasting the story of his good deed to the entire country. Or, just adopt her as her new sister, broadcast this good deed to the nation and get going with his life.

Anushka Sharma, Sultan

If Anushka Sharma would play herself in Sultan, most of the things would remain the same except the marriage bit. Because instead of falling for a wrestler she will fall for a cricketer and everything will change.

Don't you think if these movies were made like this they would be even bigger blockbusters? Lol! Let us know how you think they'll fare at the box office in the comments below.
