Double roles are back!
Kamal Haasan in ten different avatars in Dasavatharam must have been too much to handle (that’s why the film flopped), but Bollywood audiences have always considered double roles to be a double whammy.
Two for the price of one. Paisa vasool, especially if the actor playing the two roles is like Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan in Om Shanti Om. And though there have been instances of double role films failing as well — nobody took a bigger fall than Deepika Padukone with her martial art moves in Chandni Chowk to China opposite Akshay Kumar, or Akshay himself in 8x10 Tasveer, the trend that was once a hit formula in the 1960-70s, continues.
Coming in a double roles next are Shahid Kapoor in Kaminey, Bipasha Basu in All The Best and Tusshar Kapoor in Bellari Sagar’s next film. Playing a comic role of a boy-next-door who lisps as well as a ruffian who stammers, Shahid is waiting for Vishal Bharadwaj’s Kaminey to release.
Super excited as he’s got some thrilling scenes, the actor said, “Playing a double role is a dream come true for any actor. After all, what better way to put two of your extremities on screen...” Bipasha Basu, who did the trick as a curly haired firangi bimbette in one role and then played the stern police officer in the other role with Abhishek Bachchan in Dhoom 2, is once again going the ‘double’ way with All the Best. Flattered by the compliments she received for Dhoom 2, Bips is now tight-lipped about her ‘different’ look in the forthcoming film.
Lately, besides Deepika, actors Paresh Rawal and Asin Thottumkal were also seen in double roles in Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! And Deepika herself prepared for Chandni Chowk to China by watching Hema Malini’s rocking double role magic working in the 1970s’ hit Seeta aur Geeta. As for Tusshar Kapoor, his double role has him playing twins in a romantic comedy. Excited, Tusshar said, “I’m cast opposite three heroines. What fun!”
