Having Judwaas Were Definitely Not Enough In These Seven Indian Films

Varun Dhawan had a double role in his last film which is still running in theatres. Judwaa 2 was a remake of Salman Khan’s 1997 movie in which he played twins. While Prem and Raja were enough to entertain the audience, here are a few times Indian filmmakers felt the need to have the hero play multiple roles.

1. Dasavathaaram

In this 2008 sci-fi movie, Kamal Haasan played 10 distinct characters. One of them was…wait for it…George W. Bush.


2. What’s Your Raashee? 

Priyanka Chopra played 12 roles, each signifying a zodiac sign. This is supposed to be a record in Bollywood but even a dozen PeeCees couldn’t save What’s Your Raashee? at the BO.


3. Mahaan

We all know that Big B is a versatile actor. In the 1983 film, Mahaan, he got to play the role of a father and his twins.


4. Humshakals

This one had three Saif Ali Khans, three Riteish Deshmukhs and three Ram Kapoors. Nine times the headache, we say.


5. John Jani Janardhan

Directed by T. Rama Rao, John Jani Janardhan showcased Rajinikanth in three different roles. The actor made the most of the parts.


6. Gaja Gamini

M. F. Husain has always considered Madhuri Dixit his muse. He had her play five characters in his 2000 film, Gaja Gamini.


7. Naya Din Nai Raat

Sanjeev Kumar absolutely nailed it as nine characters in this Hindi remake of the regional movie – Navarathri.
