Sridevi’s sudden demise has left everyone in a state of pain and loss. Her cameo in Aanand L Rai’s film “Zero” lead has turned out to be the most anticipated screen appearance this year as this is her last appearance on screen. The legendary actor, who finished filming for her cameo role before her death on February 24, will be seen sharing screen space with Shah Rukh Khan, Alia Bhatt and Karisma Kapoor in the film.
We cannot deny the impact of some cameos which end up being the icing on the cake for the story. While many big stars humbly agree to make special guest appearances, some become the talking point of the film due to their important presence. Here are some of the most significant cameos in Bollywood films that are worth remembering:
Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt in 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’
Tahir Taliyar Khan, the role of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's husband, was played by Shah Rukh Khan in the film “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.” Now, only an actor of Shah Rukh's stature could play the former spouse of a character as huge as Aishwarya’s in the film. Alia Bhatt was also seen in this film just before the song “Break up songs.” “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” delves deep into complicated relationships revolving around one-sided love. While Ranbir Kapoor played the leading man in the film, he did not get any of the ladies in the end.
Amitabh Bachchan in 'English Vinglish'
There could have been no better comeback film for Sridevi than “English Vinglish.” She was charming and touched the hearts of almost all Indians who struggle with the English language. But what makes watching the film even better is Amitabh Bachchan's special appearance and how he lights up the screen with his subtle presence. His role is rather small, but he is impressive as usual.
Salman Khan in 'Judwaa 2'
Varun Dhawan, who idolizes Salman Khan, went on to step into his role model's shoes by playing a double role in the sequel of the superstar’s film “Judwaa.” But how could the film be complete without the Khan himself making a cameo? Salman makes a double guest appearance in “Judwaa 2” as the original Raja and Prem who return to meet the double avatars of Varun Dhawan. Well, that can be easily called a double googly.
Priyanka Chopra in '36 China Town'
“36 China Town” is a murder thriller where Akshay Khanna is a police inspector. Upen Patel plays the role of s play boy. At the very end, the audience gets the surprise when they find Priyanka Chopra as Akshay's girlfriend, with whom Upen's character flirts.
Abhishek Bachchan in 'Hum Tum'
“Hum Tum” is one of the most popular romantic films Bollywood that cast the fresh pair of Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji. Directed by Kunal Kohli, the film brings suspense to the film when Abhishek Bachchan is introduced as Rani's husband; everyone is taken aback. Abhishek's presence ensures quite an unexpected turn of events in the film.
Hrithik Roshan in 'Don 2'
Hrithik Roshan gets into the shoes of Don for a while in the film when Shah Rukh Khan disguises himself with a facial mask. Hrithik's appearance in the sequel of “Don” was kept a secret by the film-makers and it worked wonders for the movie! Even though it is just a cameo role, it is great to see Shah Rukh and Hrithik share the screen again.
Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan in 'Ki & Ka'
Arjun Kapoor gets a rare opportunity to meet the Bachchans in the film “Ki & Ka” as Jaya Bachchan invites him for lunch after being impressed by the house husband who encourages his wife to go out and make a career. The Bachchans lent their weight to the film and played a turning point as Jaya Bachchan gives a see-off gift for Kareena which comes with an eye-opening letter.
Ranbir Kapoor in 'PK'
Aamir Khan is at his weird best in “PK,” one of the biggest Bollywood blockbusters ever made. With eyes wide open and ears prominently standing out, arriving completely naked with only a radio to hide his modesty, the actor plays an alien who accidentally goes on to break blinding beliefs while searching for his locket he needs to go back home. Director Rajkumar Hirani called in none other than Ranbir Kapoor to give a remarkable ending to the film in a similar naked avatar. Now that is called a totally unexpected cameo.
