Reel people and their real counterparts

If there’s one thing that Bollywood has been buzzing about this week, it’s Sonam Kapoor’s look in the upcoming Neerja Bhanot biopic. Though a lot of people had their reservations, all doubts were put to rest when Sonam shared the first picture of her in character. From her gorgeous hairstyle to the chic uniform, the lovely lady has charmed us all with just the first look of her as Neerja! But she’s far from the first actor to wow us in a biopic. Here are 10 more of Bollywood’s finest actors who have won us over with their amazing depictions of very real people:

Silk Smitha – Vidya Balan

Though they might not look too similar, no one can argue that Vidya Balan didn’t perfectly emulate Silk Smitha’s sensuality! The best part? She brought the sexuality without compromising on the depth of Smitha’s story!

Milkha Singh – Farhan Akhtar

It took 18 months for Farhan Akhtar to prepare for his role as the Flying Sikh, and that showed in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. From the body to the mannerisms, Farhan’s performance truly hit the nail on the head.

Mary Kom – Priyanka Chopra

We don’t know about you, but Priyanka Chopra’s portrayal of Mary Kom knocked us out. But that’s not all. The depiction has Mary Kom’s seal of approval! In fact, the real Mary Kom helped the reel Mary Kom promote the film!

Paan Singh Tomar – Irrfan Khan

Paan Singh Tomar’s tale is an unconventional one. It’s, therefore, no surprise that Irrfan Khan, Bollywood’s most noteworthy offbeat actor, was the perfect choice to portray Tomar. And boy, did he wow us with his performance!

M.S. Dhoni – Sushant Singh Rajput

Sushant Singh Rajput, Bollywood’s newest man of "substance", is the perfect candidate to play one of the most notable cricketers of our time. From the trials and tribulations he faced to the highs of his career, we can’t wait to watch M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story.

Raja Ravi Verma – Randeep Hooda

The tale of the 19th-century painter, Raja Ravi Verma, is not one that most people are familiar with. But Ketan Mehta’s Rang Rasiya was the perfect crash course for anyone looking to delve deep into his story. Randeep Hooda’s depiction of the ace painter certainly helped!

Shivkar Bapuji Talpade – Ayushmann Khurrana

Shivkar Bapuji Talpade’s story is undoubtedly an inspiring one. However, bridging the gap between a story like this and an entertaining one isn’t an easy task. If there’s one actor who could’ve stepped up to the task, it’s Ayushmann. And he didn’t prove us wrong!

Bhagat Singh – Ajay Devgn

Bhagat Singh’s evolution into a martyr is one that has fascinated all of us. And if there’s one person who has portrayed it remarkably, it is Ajay Devgn. Right from the iconic mustache to the subtle gestures, we would have been fooled if we didn’t know better!

M. S. Subbulakshmi – Vidya Balan

We’ve all been entranced by M. S. Subbulakshmi’s beautiful melodies. And now, her story is coming to the silver screen. And what better actress to portray her than the lovely Vidya Balan? We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to watch the film!

Kishore Kumar – Ranbir Kapoor

Though there have been bumps in the road to the film, Ranbir Kapoor is all set to portray Kishore Kumar in Anurag Basu’s biopic. Portraying a legend like Kishore Da is a daunting task, but we’re sure that Ranbir will step up to the plate!
