Off late, the audience has grown really receptive to genres that did not find a wide acceptance just a few years ago. In the past few years, we have seen an increasing demand for women-oriented subjects, biopics, and films without songs among other genres which were termed as “unconventional” till date.. Intentionally or otherwise, a few artists, apart from showing their versatility, have aced in one genre or the other.
These Bollywood actors have risen to be the kings of their respective genres and hence the audience simply couldn’t get enough of them.
Below is a list of actors who have achieved this feat.
Akshay Kumar is already a popular star who has made a mark by acting in movies which deliver a social message alongside a dose of entertainment.The actor has proven that he can get people thinking about various social issues with his films such as ‘Airlift’, ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’, ‘The State vs Jolly LLB2’ and his upcoming release, PadMan. He is and forever will be in the books of history as the first man who used his popularity for the greater good.
Salman Khan films have emerged to be a genre in itself for his loyal fans. Since the last five years, every movie featuring Salman in the lead has touched new and then unimaginable heights of success. Films like ‘Kick’, ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’, ‘Bodygaurd’, the ‘Dabangg’ franchise, to name a few, have showcased a lot of his antics, unique dance moves, catchy one-liners and that is what the audience love to see out of him.
Within a short span of foraying into the industry, Kartik Aaryan has garnered a lot of attention for his comic timing. The actor, who is remembered for his performance in films such as Pyaar Ka Punchnama (2011), Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 (2015) and Guest Iin London, to name a few. He is being loved as the witty chocolate boy and has continually impressed us so far. His upcoming movie, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, once again belongs into the same space.
Tiger Shroff is the only, authentic Bollywood action star out of the latest generation of B-Town. When Shroff made his debut with Heropanti, people noticed that he is an impeccable dancer and is ever better at butt-kicking. The two films after that, Baaghi and A Flying Jatt, were crafted on the same template: stunts, action scenes and dance, three things that Tiger roars really hard through. And, just like that, Bollywood got its own real action hero.
Ayushmann Khurrana, who made a rather unconventional debut as a sperm donor in “Vicky Donor”, has a penchant of being the boy next door in very unusual stories. He has carved a workable niche with heartland entertainers like ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’, ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ and ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi”. With his films, he has almost always forced the society to introspect and learn from its past doings.
