Since sometime, the quintessential Bollywood bad men were missing from the films. The likes of Pran, Prem Chopra and Amjad Khan were not seen in many hit films of recent years. Most love stories had soft villains.
However, With RA.One, a vicious villain played by Arjun Rampal, will be unleashed on the screen. A bald, ferocious looking Sanjay Dutt will be seen as Kancha Cheena in Hrithik Roshan’s Agneepath. Very soon Vivek Oberoi will be seen as as a dangerous adversary in Krrish 2.
Bollywood watchers say that the bad man trend was actually reinvented by Prakash Raj in the films Wanted, Ready and Singam.
