Bollywood Actors same role different movies

The main fiasco of acting is getting yourself into a character. The character might be far off different from what you actually are IRL but, that’s your job and you gotta ace it.

Were used to seeing our favorite characters playing different roles. But all of us have a comfortable character, the role we’re used to the see the character play, and the fun fact is it doesn’t get monotonous for us.


Below is the list of actors who have pretty much played the same role in most of the movies they have acted:

1. Pankaj Tripathi – North Indian man

The versatile actor has appeared in multiple flicks in recent past. Some of the films include Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017), Newton (2017), Fukrey Returns (2017), Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl (2020), or Mimi (2021).

But the fun fact is most of the films gave him the same role and acting scheme to do. In an interview with India Today, he said,

“I don’t have to work hard for 90 percent of the roles I get (laughs). Most of the brief I get is simple – there’s a North Indian man, aur tum apna wala kuch kar dena (and then you do you).”

2. Salman Khan – Badass hero

Apart from playing the character of Prem, Tere Naam, Tubelight and Sultan, Salman Khan has been playing almost similar roles. A comedy movie or a badass cop role, Salman hasn’t experimented much and sticks with commercial films.

3. Ajay Devgn – The tough guy

Ajay has kind of experimented with his roles. Where he did act in a very subtle manner in films like Drishyam. But mostly we’re used to seeing him in roles like a cop or someone who is never vulnerable or weak.

4. Aparshakti Khurana – Hero ka dost

He’s mostly seen playing roles where he has always been the Hero’s friend. He has acted in films like Dangal, Stree, Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, or Luka Chupi. All of them more or less had similar kinda roles. During an interview, he said,

“I was traveling and a guy came to me at the airport and said a very thing cute thing which makes me very happy. He said ‘Sir, aapko pata hai aapne hero ke dostun ko respect de di’ (Do you know you gave respect to hero’s friends). I felt so good about it. And whenever somebody comes and gives me ‘gyaan’ on doing a lead role or looks down on me as an actor because I am not doing things in the lead space, I just go back to that conversation and feel happy about it.”

10. Rajpal Yadav

The comedian guy. No matter what the film is. we’re always used to see Rajpal being the comedian. His main role in a film is just to be the comedic aura beside the people and to give a film a comic relief.
