Still not going to say “Bollywood”! I have taken a solemn vow! And even my addiction to alliteration will not sway me! But I am going to give in to my addiction to Fairy Tales and use it as the basis for a movie.
This is kind of a repost, I put this up as one of my first fanvid posts ever. But the original post was kind of short, just the videos. So here it is, expanded and perfected, in honor of Pride.
So, if you have watched your fair number of 90s Hindi films, you immediately went “Yes! That guy!” as soon as you saw the picture up there. He’s one of those people that wanders in and out of films, playing the guy who is like-the-hero-but-not-as-good. Friend, rival, enemy, brother, what have you. In, like, Everything!!!
He played Sanjay’s best friend and side-kick in Sadak:
(It is a special challenge as a side-kick to make Sanjay look like a good dancer)
A year later, he was in Khiladi, supporting Akshay:
(Shirtless Akshay presents different challenges. Like, being visible on the screen when he is blinding us with his hotness)
The same year, he was Aamir’s rival in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander
(ooo, they are so evil!)
In 1994, he twice bested Shahrukh in a romantic challenge, in both Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa and Anjaam:
(I love this movie, and I really love this song. I don’t care that it makes no sense on any level. Also, did you know this actress married Shekhar Kapur, director of Mr. India and the Cate Blanchette Elizabeth movies?)
