They Aced As The Second Fiddle In 2018
A film is incomplete if those acting in it aren’t up to the mark. But in the recent past, there have been instances where not only did the main woo us but the supporting cast as well. These actors who played second fiddle in these 2018 film were at par or sometimes even better than the lead.
Some amazing examples of these are mind blowing actors are Annu Kapoor in Vicky Donor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui in Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Rajkummar Rao in Bareilly Ki Barfi and more.
We bring you 10 actors who won us with their supporting role performance in 2018.
Jim Sarbh – Padmaavat
Jim essayed the part of an eunuch slave-general to Alauddin Khilji in this film. There is no doubt that he won our hearts with his sly comments, fabulous acting and amazing dialogue delivery. He was so awesome that in some scenes he even overshadowed Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and may be even Ranveer Singh.
Vicky Kaushal – Sanju
Remember Kamlesh Kanhaiyalal Kapasi aka Kamli aka Vicky Kaushal? Even though the movie was based on the life of Sanjay Dutt – essayed by Ranbir Kapoor – we feel more in love with Baba’s best friend Kamli.
Rajkummar Rao - Fanney Khan
As Adhir, Fanney Khan’s friends, Rajkummar Rao cannot be missed. The innocence with which he takes care of the kidnapped Baby Singh (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) is sure to make you go ‘Aww’.
Irrfan Khan – Karwaan
Irrfan played Shaukat, a person who has no filters between his mind and mouth. He speaks what he wants even if it’s not politically correct.
Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurrana, and Abhishek Banerjee – Stree
The 3 actors - Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurrana, and Abhishek Banerjee – played as much an important role as Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao. From their comic timing to their innocence – we loved it all.
Abhishek Bachchan – Manmarziyaan
Abhishek played Robbie a mature NRI who comes to India looking for a girl to settle down. He may not have been Taapsee’s first choice but he definitely was the one she stayed with.
Sunil Grover - Pataakha
Though the film is centered on sisters Badki (Radhika Madan) and Chhutki (Sanya Malhotra), you cannot take your eyes off Dipper Naradmuni aka Sunil Grover. His acting as the chuglikhor is what drives the sisters in making decisions.
Manav Vij - Andhadhun
Manav Vij as the ‘not so good’ inspector in this drama is what gives more character to the main leads. Don’t you agree?
Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub - Zero
As the bestie of the lead he does play an important role in the love life of the male lead. The chemistry he shares with Shah Rukh Khan is refreshing.
Ashutosh Rana and Siddhartha Jadhav – Simmba
Ashutosh and Siddhartha played a head constable and sub inspector respectively in this drama that released in the last week of 2018. Rana’s dedication and honesty to his job later becomes one of the driving forces behind Simmba’s transformation. Jadhav’s support for his superior during their fun and then the serious times is noteworthy.
