Angar Chand

The wealthy man with a joint family in film Hulchul who plays Angar Chand is this actor. His decision to ban females entry in his house gave him the villain avatar in this otherwise comedy film

Baba Bhairo Nath 

The actor plays Baba Bhairo Nath, the snake charmer, in the film Nagina cannot be forgotten. While Sridevi plays the naagin, the actor was no less in his role

Thakur Durjan Singh 

Thakur Durjan Singh in Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan film Karan Arjun is another popular role. He was hated by the audience for causing the protagonists pain and suffering

Durgaprasad Bhardwaj 

Away from his villain characters was this role as Durgaprasad Bhardwaj in the film Chachi 420 where he falls for a man portraying to be a woman. Epic fun!
