01/6From Salman Khan in ‘Zero’ to Ranbir Kapoor in ‘PK’: When A-list Bollywood actors made cameos in other movies
Gone are the days when big Bollywood actors would hesitate to star in multi-starrer movies. Today, the actors not only share screen space with their competitors but also graciously play special cameos in each other’s movies.
There have been many movies in the past where A-list actors of Bollywood have played special cameo roles in movies of their Bollywood counterparts. Salman Khan made a cameo in Aanand L Rai’s ‘Zero’ starring Shah Rukh Khan, SRK too made a special appearance in Salman Khan starrer ‘Tubelight’, so on and so forth.
Now, with Shah Rukh Khan all set to play a special cameo in Ayan Mukerji’s upcoming film, ‘Brahmastra’ starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, here we take a look at the times when Bollywood actors made cameos in other movies.
02/6Salman Khan in ‘Zero’
Salman Khan is one of the most gracious and down-to-earth actors we have in the industry. While he is known to be the Godfather of many newcomers in the industry, he is also one of the most polite and giving actors in Bollywood.
Salman not only recommended his friend Shah Rukh Khan Aanand L Rai’s film, ‘Zero’ but also went ahead to do a small cameo in one of the songs in the movie. In ‘Issaqbaazi’ song, Salman and Shah Rukh are seen matching steps and it was a treat for the sore eyes for all their fans.
03/6Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Tubelight’
Much before Salman became a part of Shah Rukh Khan starrer, the latter had done a special cameo in Salman starrer ‘Tubelight’. The actor was seen playing a magician dressed in colourfully embroidered waistcoat with harem pants, kohl-filled eyes and a tattoo on his face in the film.
Salman had revealed in an interview earlier that it just took him a phone call to convince Shah Rukh Khan to play this role in ‘Tubelight’.
04/6Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’
Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan are not only one of the most loved director-actor duos in Bollywood but they also share a great bond of friendship. The filmmaker had the actor play a special cameo in his last directorial venture, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ starring Anushka Sharma, Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
In the film, Shah Rukh is seen playing ex-husband Tahir Taliyar Khan to Aishwarya. His peek-a-boo appearance in the film was loved by his fans and was one of the major highlights of the movie.
05/6Ranbir Kapoor in ‘PK’
Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘PK’ starring Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma and Sushant Singh Rajput impressed one and all. The film dealt with an alien who accidentally goes on to break blinding beliefs while searching for his locket he needed to go back home on earth.
The filmmaker called in none other than Ranbir Kapoor to give a remarkable ending to the film in a naked alien avatar and it was simply whistle-worthy.
06/6Amitabh Bachchan in ‘English Vinglish’
Late actress Sridevi starrer ‘English Vinglish’ was one of the most remarkable and much-appreciated films of the actress. Apart from her strong screen presence and brilliant performance in the movie, it was Amitabh Bachchan’s special cameo that stood out in the film.
Sridevi meets Amitabh Bachchan in a flight and their short sequence in the film where the actor is seen helping and comforting Sridevi as a co-passenger was heart-warming.
