Bollywood actors and their commitment towards their work is on a different level these days. It’s nothing new in Hollywood for actors to prepare and go through drastic physical changes to become the character they would be playing in order to be more relatable for their audience. Be it weight gain, weight loss, getting six pack abs or even adding more years to their look, actors have never held back.

In recent years, we have seen the same kind of dedication from Bollywood artists as well. While many could say there is a lot more vanity in our industry than in the West, there are bold actors who don’t adhere by these norms and are taking the big step of transforming completely into their onscreen characters. Earlier this week, posters of Salman Khan starrer Bharat and Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar’s Saand Ki Aankh were released online. In their respective films, all the three actors will be seen playing much older characters and they have completely moulded themselves into their on-screen persona and look almost unrecognizable. Well, believe it or not, but in the past, quite a few actors did the same. Take a look…

Salman Khan in Bharat

Salman Khan’s Bharat is one of the most anticipated movies to release this year for all the obvious reasons. The poster of the movie is out and Salman looks almost unrecognizable. Sporting five different looks in the movie, the poster of Bharat shows Salman in a much older version, sporting a salt-n pepper look with heavy beard and moustache

Bhumi Pednekar & Taapsee Pannu in Saand Ki Aankh

In Saand Ki Aankh , Bhumi and Taapsee will be playing the role of the world’s oldest women sharpshooters. Bhumi will be seen as Chandro Tomar while Tapsee will be playing Prakashi Tomar. Staying true to their roles, both the actresses have visibly added years to their look with the help of make-up.

John Abraham in RAW

In the newly released spy thriller Romeo Akbar Walter, John is seen sporting 15 different avatars that too successfully with the help of prosthetics and specialist Preetisheel. Especially John’s look of a 70-year-old man is very convincing.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Sarbjit

In Omung Kumar’s directorial venture, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan played the role of Sarbjit’s sister. The films showcase the 22 years that Sarbjit spent in jail for alleged spying and terrorism. For the same, Aishwarya was happy to leave her vanity aside and played a much older character than her real-life age.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas in 7 Khoon Maaf

Priyanka Chopra has never shied away from taking up risky projects. So it’s not surprising that PeeCee did Vishal Bhardwaj’s Saat Khoon Maaf way back in 2011. In the film, her character ages from 20 to 65 and goes through several marriages at different points in her life. With the help of prosthetics, Priyanka played 7 completely different parts, one being that of a 65-year-old woman.

Rishi Kapoor in Kapoor & Sons

When Rishi Kapoor played 90-year-old grandfather in Kapoor & Sons, he got some help from Oscar-winning American make-up artist Greg Cannom of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Titanic fame. The producer of the film had to shell out Rs 2 crore for the actor’s unbelievable transformation and the look took 5 hours of hard labour every day.

Right from the first film in which the audiences saw Vicky Kaushal, they fell in love with the actor. Vicky started off his career with the role of a simple lover boy in Masaan, and there was no stopping for him after that. He essayed several roles and outdid himself with each offering. Currently, he is one of the most bankable names in the industry, and people know that if he is on the big screen, they are in for an entertaining watch. Today (May 16) as the Masaan actor celebrates his 31st birthday, we  take a look at 5 of his note-worthy performances.

# Masaan: Vicky touched everyone’s heart with this performance of his. Marking his debut, Masaan became a film that people still adore Vicky for. His innocent character, his lean body and his chemistry with Shweta Tripathi made his character look exceptionally good on the big screen. Oh, and a lot of the credit goes to his acting as well. People discovered Vicky through this movie, and then it was just a wave of big offers for him.

# Raazi: Yet again, posing as an innocent husband worked really well for of Vicky. Although Alia did run the movie on her slender but strong shoulders, Vicky’s appearance was just like a cherry on the cake. The delicately nuanced way the actor played the role of Alia’s Pakistani husband Iqbal Syed, left everyone impressed.

# Sanju: If we ever want a friend, it would be a friend like Vicky Kaushal in Sanju. He essayed the role of a Gujju boy, Kamli, in the film, and stepped into the shoes of the character excellently. Ranbir Kapoor and Vicky’s camaraderie was appreciated by everyone, and his dialogue delivery had everyone feel each emotion that he was feeling.

# Manmarziyaan: Vicky was seen in a never-seen-before avatar in this film. He essayed the role of a DJ and his blue hair grabbed everyone’s attention instantly. He romanced Taapsee Pannu in the film and we can say that no one but Vicky could have essayed the role of an irresponsible and rash, but endearing lover with such ease.

# Uri-The Surgical Strike: This film was a milestone in Vicky’s career. Portraying the role of a Major Vihaan Shergill, Vicky raised the nation’s collective energy by simply asking, “How’s the josh?”.  It has been his best performance till date. The film made the audience cry, laugh, smile and and feel proud, and all the credit goes to Vicky for sure.

So these were our favourite films of Vicky’s! Which one is your favourite? Let us know in the comments section below.  Vicky will now be seen in Sardar Udham Singh, where he will essay the role of freedom fighter Udham Singh. He will also be a part of Karan Johar’s magnum opus Takht, in a negative role for the first time. We at CineBlitz also wish Vicky a very happy birthday.
