Every movie attracts an audience because of the main actors who are working in the film and there obviously is no doubt in this fact that their hard work and powerful performance are the reason why the film becomes a huge success in the end. However, there are certain cases when it is the supporting actor who shines out by leaving the audience spellbound with their performance thereby stealing the show.

So today we will be counting our best picks for those actors who are well known not by their real names but by the characters that they performed that helped to build the whole film.

1. Mohammad Zeeshan Ayub

One may or may not be familiar with his real name but most of us do know him by the name of Murari. Zeeshan who starred in a peculiar film like Ranjhanaa did a commendable job with his portrayal of Murari as a character. Murari’s outburst when Kundan tries to commit suicide is an emotion that was brilliantly represented by Zeeshan. We should all know about his other recent works that are as amazing as the film Tandav and Chhalaang.

2. Rajendranath Zutshi

Another less acknowledged film and television is an actor named Rajendranath Zutshi. His contribution to the entertainment industry of India is spellbinding. Known mostly because of his work as Ismail in the Oscar nominee film Lagaan we should recognize his other great works in films like Murder, Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Chachi 420, and many others as well.

3. Supriya Karnik

Mostly well known as an Indian television actress Supriya Karnik is well known as a queen for her negative roles. What might come as shock is that she has also worked on the big screen with quite a good film as a supporting character like Welcome, De Dana Dan, Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, and many others. The fame that she actually deserves has not quite been bestowed on her.

4. Deepak Dobriyal

Worked in so many films like Lucknow Central, Hindi Medium, Kaamyab, and many others one cannot deny his amazing performance as Pappi in the Tanu Weds Manu series. A stellar performer who won so many hearts as Pappi must be known by his real name which happens to be Deepak Dobriyal.

5. Saurabh Shukla

An unexpected gem of a movie series Jolly LLB came out in the year 2013 and as much as the performance of Akshay Kumar was spellbinding so was that of Saurabh Shukla as Justice Sundar Lal Tripathi. His other works should also be given as much appreciation as PK, Fraud Saiyaan, Madam Chief Minister, and others. And so should his name as an amazing actor be validated.

6. Annu Kapoor

A veteran actor who has portrayed many astounding supporting roles must not be seen as a mere supporting folk especially when the talk is about his character of Dr. Baldev Chadda in 2016s most revered movie Vicky Donor. It was not only the film’s plot and the main lead’s acting but also Annu Kapoor’s star performance that made the movie a huge success.

7. Snehal Dabi

Snehal Dabi is another versatile actor who is known mostly for his side yet an impactful performance in the 2007 film Welcome. He sure had a mere role but the sheer talent this person is blessed with is still well seen in his acting. He has worked in other films too like Phir Hera Pheri, A Wednesday, Pyaar Diwana Hota Hai, and many others. His is a name that surely deserves a place in everyone’s mind.

8. Nitish Pandey

Yet another integral part of the Bollywood films wherewith his marvelous manager and secretary roles Nitish Pandey has e a very effectual remark on every one of us. Still, somehow we don’t acknowledge them and often forget about him. He has worked in films like Shaadi Ke Side Effects, and Om Shanti Om and he also often works in the television industry.

9. Jim Sarbh

No way in hell I am discounting Sonam Kapoor’s iconic work in the sensational film Neerja but one thing is for sure one of the two terrorists in the movie named Khalil was such an intense and terrifying character was so, so rivetingly played by an underrated actor Jim Sarbh. Without his stupendous acting, the film would not have been this impactful. One must appreciate and recognize this folk.

10. Kurush Deboo

Another Indian film actor named Kurush Deboo is barely known with his name to everyone which of course is saddening but what is remarkable about this being is his contribution in some wonderful films like Munna Bhai M.B.B.S and others like Mujhse Shaadi Karogi and Bhoothnath Returns etc.

11. Pradeep Rawat

Saying without this 69-year-old folk named Pradeep Rawat the film Ghajini would not have been Ghajini is absolutely correct. The antagonist role played by him in this sensible and astounding film is beyond praise. His other great works include Singh is Bling, Grand Masti, and others.

12. Dinyar Contractor

Late veteran actor Dinyar Contractor appeared in various films and television series that we all have certainly watched but when it comes to remembering his name we just can’t. What is important for all of us is to know that he was not just a versatile actor but also a classic comedian who definitely made the films and shows he worked in worthwhile for everybody who watched.

13. Jeetu Verma

Jeetu Verma who gained a little recognition from his appearance in the Amazon Prime original show Mirzapur is actually an actor who has given quite a good performance way before as well. If you’ve watched the movie Soldier you might remember the hilarious and fun character Jojo, that was performed by none other than our Jeetu Verma and it is important to acknowledge all his amazing comical side roles because that is what makes a film eminent.

14. Ranvir Shorey

He has worked in several prominent television series as well like Yahaan main Ghar Ghar Kheli, C.I.D., Naagin, and many others. His prominent Bollywood works come from films like Welcome, Baazigar, Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, etc.

16. Sherveer Vakil

Vakil who has worked not just as an actor but also as a personal trainer for so many well-known personalities is someone who we barely recall. It is a sad fact that he was mostly active in the years prior to 2010. His most renowned works come from the film Welcome where his antagonism won so many hearts.
