7 Supporting Roles in Hindi Cinema that Stole The Show

Team FC

Nawazuddin Siddiqui - Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015)

Although Bajrangi Bhaijaan is undoubtedly one of Salman Khan's best performances, Siddiqui's as the reporter Chand Nawab has stuck in the minds of the audience. His performance was not only touching but also incredibly essential for the film's plot to move forward.

Arshad Warsi - Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. (2003)

Arshad Warsi's portrayal of Circuit in Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. is one of the most beloved characters in Hindi cinema. Although the star of the film, Sanjay Dutt, carried it on his shoulders, the film would not be as memorable as it is without Warsi's camaraderie with Dutt.

Priyanka Chopra - Bajirao Mastani (2015)

Although the central tenet of the film was the phenomenal love story of Bajirao and Mastani, an unintended consequence that not many could have imagined was the love that Priyanka received in her portrayal of Kashi Bai.

Irrfan Khan - Haider (2014)

Irrfan Khan does not need more than a minute's worth of screen time to light up the screen. Khan as Roohdaar in Vishal Bhardwaj's Haider is a testament to the above statement. Roohdaar's heroic entry into the film made his unknown character hard to overlook by the viewers.

Pankaj Tripathi - Masaan (2015)

Pankaj Tripathi is not just a talented performer, but his skill in selecting roles that are combined with his genius make for a truly memorable character. Tripathi's Sadhya Ji in Neeraj Ghaywan's Masaan is no exception.

Boman Irani - 3 Idiots (2009)

Boman Irani delivered the most unforgettable character of Hirani's cinematic universe, Viru Sahastrabuddhe, also known as Virus. His role as a grumpy old man has made him a household name, which people cannot seem to forget even after a decade.

Piyush Mishra - Gangs of Wasseypur (2012)

Despite the fact that all actors in the film played a significant role in the creation of the film, Piyush Mishra as Nasir Ahmed dominated the movie from the first frame to the last.
