Along with some amazing performances, headlined by some of our favorite actors, 2016 also saw a cluster of unexpected and, at times, completely surprising cameos. Superstars played homosexuals with panache and recited poetry with a silken touch all for the sake of a role that lasted no more than a few minutes. But, oh boy, did they leave a lasting impression within that constricted time frame, sometimes, even more so than the lead cast.
We list you five of the best Bollywood cameos of 2016, which were alone worth the price of admission.
Trust SRK to bring even chaste, archaic Urdu to life in his own inimitable style. Hats off to you, King Khan.
Lisa Haydon as D’Souza in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
Lisa was downright hilarious as the gold-digging bimbette, who was taking sweet, innocent Ranbir Kapoor for a ride. Perhaps, a full-fledged role along the same lines is in the asking.
It takes a special actor to look so convincing as an effeminate, homosexual after having built a career out of playing macho onscreen characters. To do so in a matter of five minutes is beyond special. Also, kudos to Akki for making the role funny without ever venturing into caricature territory.
Leaving a mark in just few minutes despite being in the shadow of Alia Bhatt, in arguably, her best performance to date, requires a special effort. Thankfully, Aditya was up to the task.
Playing themselves, the Big B and his better half warmed our hearts while delivering a touching and topical anecdote about marriage and companionship these days.
