The 90s magic hits differently, the lives were not complicated and fun. With no wifi, no smartphones or fancy games and gadgets, the most entertaining thing was the films and daily soaps on TV. There were some amazing films we saw in the golden age of films and TV. We still vividly remember the plot and performance of the lead actors. But there were some talented supporting actors who made a mark by being a part of the cinema by playing supporting roles. They were equally popular and loved by all.
