Top 5 Underrated Actors in Bollywood
5. Manoj Bajpayee
Debuting in a one minute role in Dhrohkaal, he went on to play roles of small screen presence in Bandit Queen, Satya etc. Anurag Kashyap's Gangs of Wasseypur was a breakthrough which gave him the recognition in the industry. Yet we find it shocking that this phenomenal actor has not deserved the success he very much deserves. Here's hoping that we get to see more of Manoj Bajpai in the coming years. He is gearing up for the release of Suraj pe Mangal Bhaari and Family Man Season 2.
4. Kay Kay Menon
Again, debuting with a small role in the 1995 movie Naseem, Kay Kay Menon went on to portray the lead in Bhopal Express but it wasn't a success. Anurag Kashyap directed Paanch would have been a breakthrough had it not remained unreleased due to its gore, violence and drug abuse. Being a versatile, charismatic actor, he has been time and again praised for the vivid roles portrayed by him on screen. His recent series, Special Ops was a hit among the masses.
3. Randeep Hooda
How shall we put this in words? Randeep's debut was in Monsoon Wedding (2001) which itself was a commercial success. The actor later went to portray roles in D and later Once Upon A Time in Mumbai, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster and later Sarabjit which was the best and most appreciated performance of his. The actor is gearing up for his next release as a supporting character in Salman Khan starrer Radhe.
2. Gulshan Devaiah
This gem of an actor is not seen much on screen and we wonder why! Debuting in That Girl in Yellow Boots and later starring in a few movies like Dum Maaro Dum, Shaitan, Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota. The latest of his movies include Commando 3, Afsos and Ghost Stories. A few in number to be underrated you may think? Watch each of his roles and you will understand why! Cast him in a big flick already!
1. Vidyut Jammwal
Let's just say it! "Bollywood doesn't deserve true talent". Not drawing any comparison but Vidyut Jammwal is unmatched when it comes to martial art and action sequences in Bollywood. Debuting in a few minute role in Stanley Ka Dabba, Vidyut went on to play antagonist in a couple of movies: Force opposite John Abraham, Thuppakki opposite Vijay (tamil), Oosaravelli opposite Jnr NTR (telugu) and Billa 2 opposite Ajith (tamil). Meanwhile, his debut in Vipul Shah's Commando A One Man Army was praised beyond words for its tremendous action value and his ability to pull it off without body doubles. The actor, trained in the south Indian form of Kalarippayattu also starred in Baadshaho. His upcoming releases include Khuda Haafiz and Yaara. The actor, under his banner, Action hero Films, hosts "X-Rayed by Vidyut" where he converses with martial artists and action heroes from across the world.
