Bollywood has all been about “Drama”, Bollywood has been gifting us over-the-top characters who have been redefining what it means to be “dramatic” or maybe “Over-dramatic”.
Here are some of the characters who redefined what is means to be dramatic
Sapna (Hum Saath Saath Hain)
With her love for smiling and dressing up, Sapna is the colleague you love at a party but hate on a Monday Morning.
Neetu Batra (Om Jai Jagdish)
Remember the dialogue ‘Poo bani Parvati‘ from K3G? Neetu Batra is the original inspiration for that comment.
Pooja aka Poo (Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…)
The most iconic OTT character, you’ve got to love her attitude and self-confidence. I mean, she chides her own self for being too pretty! Bollywood’s Kardashian? We AGREE!!
Nandu Bhide/Vicky Grover (Happy New Year)
If only alcohol gave us the same level of confidence boost that Nandu got. While we end up passed out in a corner after a night of heavy drinking, this guy ended up winning an international dance competition. So what if that competition was rigged?
Sweetu (Kal Ho Na Ho)
When you’re low on confidence, think of your life the way Sweetu thinks of her life – there is no minor event and everything deserves maximum attention.
Raj Aryan (Mohabbatein)
Mohabbatein is basically Casper, with the gender reversal. Also, when are our Indian schools officially going to launch a subject called the art of falling in love?
Khushi’s ideology in life was basically this: Why reason when you can protest? Clearly, this was a movie far ahead of its times. Released now, Khushi would have been a Twitter idol.
Rahul Mithaiwala (Chennai Express)
Bollywood’s Rahul is synonymous with helping damsels in distress, be it against his wish or her wish. Also, another gem in the illustrious life of ‘pehle takraar phir pyaar‘ movie genre (exclusive to Bollywood).
Ms. Braganza (Kuch Kuch Hota Hai)
The English teacher who helped launch the love ideology of the nineties, Ms. Braganza and Raj Aryan probably got their teaching license from the same school.
Aisha Verma (Ek Villain)
She did spend the movie shouting ‘aye villain‘ but to the wrong guy. Clearly, she was the biggest secret keeper and we just missed that in the plot.
