If Bollywood Actors Played Themselves In Movies, These Movies Would Have Failed Miserably

Acting in a movie is all about taking up a different character and playing it like it is you. There are many talented actors in Bollywood that have always made the viewers believe in the characters they play. But this does not mean that the actors eventually become like the characters they play. In real life, SRK is more known as a business genius than someone awfully romantic, Sallu Bhai is known more for his bindass attitude than his fights and action.

Every actor has their set of skills and characteristic that help them transform into the character they play. What if they refuse to be someone else in the movie and play just themselves. Do you think the movies will be a superhit? Or a complete disaster? This is how we think the scenario will be:

1. Aamir Khan, Dangal

First of all, if Aamir Khan played himself in Dangal, he will never be as bulky. He’d let his daughters choose the kind of careers they want. He might want them to be as perfect as he is but will never force them to do something to fulfill his own dream.

2. Salman Khan, Bajrangi Bhaijaan

After finding Munni, Sallu bhai will just call a few of his friends and get Munni to be sent back home safely, instead of going there himself. He might as well adopt her if she doesn’t find a home.

3. Ajay Devgn, Baadshaho

If Ajay Devgn played himself, Baadshaho will be a lot less torturous because he’ll be married already and won’t fall in love with Ileana’s character. He will never be blinded by love and the film will end faster.

4. Sonam Kapoor, Neerja

Sonam Kapoor will not last long after the hijack if she behaved like herself. The terrorist will kill her first because of her rant and comments on their bad dressing sense and shoes.

5. Shah Rukh Khan, Fan

If SRK himself in Fan, which he did, the story will not be stretched as long because he’ll get Gaurav arrested way before he creates all the chaos. Also, there will be a lot of censor cuts and no smoking banners in the corner during the entire movie.

6. Ranveer Singh, Dil Dhadakne Do

If Ranveer Singh played himself in DDD, the film wouldn’t have him as a character because the classy and elite Mehra family will disown him just because of his ridiculous seeming fashion choices.

7. Kangana Ranaut, Queen

Kangana will not care much about Vijay after she leaves her except calling him his stupid ex. She will move on with her life for “the man who is better than the one before”. But if ever Vijay tried to come back to her life, she’ll make sure she takes the matter to aapki adalat.

8. Anushka Sharma, Sultan

Anushka’s character in Sultan wouldn’t be much different. However, the story will change because she’ll fall in love with a cricketer, not a wrestler. The rest will change accordingly 😉

9. Varun Dhawan, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania

If Varun Dhawan played himself, he’ll not have to worry about his marriage because daddy will take care of everything. He’ll never get beaten and the film will be way shorter, because who’ll not want to marry their daughter to Varun.

While these movies seem like a disaster now, we’d really like to know your views on these. Do comment below!
