Good boys, bad roles

Dhoom 3Dhoom 3
When they played good guys, they were good, when they played bad, they were better....Some movies where the good guys turned mean. Aamir Khan will be playing a negative role in 'Dhoom 3'. This, however, is not the first time that Khan will be playing a villain. Earlier, in '1947 Earth' and in 'Fanaa' he played characters with gray shades. YuvaYuva
Junior Bachchan looked convincing as the menacing Lallan Singh in 'Yuva'. His performance was appreciated. And to think Abhishek almost lost the role as he didn't respond to Mani Rathnam's calls when he wanted to approach him for the role, because he didn't recognise the number. It was Abhishek's friend Shaad Ali who finally got Ratnam and Bachchan to speak to each other.DhoomDhoom
For an industry riddled with bald headed and menacing looking villains, drop dead gorgeous John Abraham came as a refreshing change, when he played the bike-riding cool villain.Dhoom 2

No villain must have looked as breath-takingly handsome as Hrithik Roshan did in 'Dhoom 2'. He played the villain who had a penchant for technology and was a master con man.AnjaamAnjaam

It is still considered one of the boldest moves of his career, when Shah Rukh chose to play a killer at a very early stage in his career, not worrying about being typecast. In this movie he avenges the death of his father. He dates both the daughters of this father's killer and kills one of the sisters played by Shilpa Shetty.OmkaraOmkara
