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. On his birthday, we’d like to take a look back to 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 these films.

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.

Judaai (1997)

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.

Hulchul (2004)

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. Happy birthday, Sir!
