7 Most Stereotyped Bollywood Actors

Team FC

Aruna Irani

Irani was saddled with roles of the "vamp", a vengeful woman who was always implied to have questionable morals, through most of her career, thus prohibiting the actor from proving her talent with more challenging characters.

Johny Lever

Lever is likely the finest comic actor in Hindi cinema, but filmmakers have seldom made an effort to offer him a variation in role, leaving it to the veteran actor to give his fans something memorable each time.

Chirag Wakaskar

Arshad Warsi

Warsi has been pigeonholed into playing comedic characters or straight men in comedies when he has the ability to go for broke in dramatic turns, as he has suitably demonstrated on the occasions when he has had the opportunity.

Rajpal Yadav

Yadav's comedic skills are undeniable, as is his acting ability, but filmmakers have used him in exactly the same way all too often.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Siddiqui's breakout role came in Gangs of Wasseypur, and he has since played gangsters to the point that his performances even feel same. The stereotype has even crossed the seas, with the British show McMafia casting Siddiqui as a hoodlum too.

Ayushmann Khurrana

From his debut Vicky Donor, Khurrana has played men with different biological problems and sometimes battling societal conditioning.

Abhishek Banerjee

Despite a terrific performance as Hathoda Tyagi in the show Paatal Lok, Banerjee's film career appears to have been one of largely playing the "hero's friend".
