We ask our telly stars, which is the one role or character that they would like to play.
Mohini from Tezaab. Absolutely loved the way Madhuri Dixit played it. I am fond of dancing, so I feel that I’d play it to the hilt if I get an opportunity. Madhuri was like fire on-screen and stole hearts by her fabulous portrayal of Mohini in this film. Tezaab made her a superstar overnight.
I’d love to play coach Kabir Khan from Chak de. I think SRK is best remembered for that role even though he played many larger-than-life characters in numerous films. The performance was restrained and subtle. The role presented Shah Rukh in a very different manner. Even though he didn’t have a romantic interest, he nailed it and people just loved it .
I would like to play Raj from Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayege. The role made Shah Rukh the undisputed king of romance. Shah Rukh Khan redefined true romance with this film and the climax scene was simply mind blowing. I would give anything to play this role.
I would love to play the role of Vijay from the film Deewar any day. I am a huge Amitabh Bacchan fan. I simply loved the way he played the angry young man in this film and created history. He is what a hero should be. He is one actor I look up to.
I would like to play Geet from Jab We Met. Kareena was so mesmerising as Geet in the movie. The role had huge emotional range. I can watch the film again and again and not get bored. That film presented Kareena Kapoor in a role of a lifetime. I would call it her best.
I would love to be in the Karan Johar movies because I love his films... he makes his heroines look the best. I would love to do a film like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and play Kajol’s role. The role had so many dimensions. It gave her a huge canvas to perform.
Showman Raj Kapoor’s role from Mera Naam Joker. I’d like to play a clown because these characters have all the shades and dimensions of this world. I would say ‘Kal khel mein hum rahe na rahe... gardish mein rahenge sada.’
