Bollywood has kept us entertained since forever. Although most movies are backed up by an A-lister, who also has the chunkiest role, there are a few characters who have been etched into our memories.
This is, by no means, an extensive list, neither is it exhaustive. It is merely the tip of the iceberg that is Bollywood.

Who: Bhavani Shankar
Where: Golmaal (1979)

Where: Andaz Apna Apna
Why: Because master of crime, he is the Crime Master.

And an honorary mention to Jimmy Shergill. He really deserves a movie of his own.
