We love our celebrities for who they are. We like the characters they play on screen. We begin rooting for the character so much that we want to become like them. We get used to seeing actors play the roles of saviors and Goody-Two-Shoes in films; and actresses playing cute and charming roles. But have we ever rooted for the guys who play antagonists? Playing a negative role is no joke. Rajinikanth started off his career by playing negative roles in films. And got immediate attention from the audience! Kamal Haasan has shown us his negative streak in Aalavandhan. Today’s top stars Ajith and Vijay haven’t shied away from experimenting either. However, there are a few more actors we’d like to see play negative roles. Here’s who should consider playing the antagonist in their future films.
If you watched her performance in Arrambam and Anaamika, you’d probably ask yourself one question: Why hasn’t she taken up a full-fledged negative role yet? With her menacing eyes, and distinct demeanor, she’s sure to excel in a negative role. We hope our wishes come true soon!
If there was an award for playing a reformer/revolutionist most number of times, then Jayam Ravi would win it! From playing the role of an army officer in Peranmai to his recent role in Thani Oruvan, he’s played many roles where he battles it out with the enemy. It would be refreshing to see him play the enemy, for a change.
Stylish star Allu Arjun did play an off-beat role in Arya and Arya 2, but those don’t really qualify as negative roles. His intense looks and unmatched screen presence might make him fit the bill of a negative actor. We hope he takes up a role like this, and stars opposite his cousin Ram Charan (the two were last seen in Yevadu). That would be a battle we would surely watch.
She’s often typecast as the cute and innocent girl in most of her Telugu and Tamil films. Considering the way she’s climbing to a top position in her career, we want her to take up diverse roles, in which we get to see her acting prowess. Which is why we need to see the actress play the role of a vamp. A fashionable vamp that is!
Ruling hearts for over a decade, Trisha is one of South cinema’s most sought-after heroines. While she has played a variety of roles in her career, a negative role is still missing from her filmography. If a top league heroine decides to do a negative role, we’re sure other heroines will follow suit.
