Underworld and its gangsters have influenced a whole lot of filmmakers. However, only a few charmed us and made their place into the list of strong and handsome dons. The first name that comes to our mind when we speak about a don in Bollywood is, Shahrukh Khan.
Although the actor is a replica of the super hit classic film, Don starring Amitabh Bachchan, SRK managed to win many hearts with his don look. This might be mainly because he got over his long time King of Romance image and turned out wild, strong and powerful Don in Farhan Akhtar's directed film series. Although he might not have completely acted like Amitabh did in Don years ago, but SRK managed to appear really stylish and handsome which is unbeatable!
Shahrukh Khan has played don roles in the Don series directed by Farhan Akhtar. Apart from Shahrukh Khan, some other actors as well played don roles in movies. For example, John Abraham played the role of a don in the hit film, Shootout at Wadala. John has a persona to carry off any look which obviously includes the don role.
However, it was a surprise to see Vivek Oberoi as a gangster. Vivek looked really handsome and rough in Shootout at Lokhandwala which was really impressive. The actor also grabbed many awards, not just for his looks but acting as well.
When we have so handsome and stylish don or gangster role filling actors in Bollywood, it is certainly possible to fall in love with the bad guy! Here is a look at the Bollywood actors who played handsome dons on screen.
Bollywood Actors Who Played Don Roles:
He looked like a typical 70s gangster in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai.
Handsome, built, wild and aggressive makes John one of the handsome dons of Bollywood.
He too went shirtless along with Salman in Dabangg which just stole our hearts.
He played the typical gangster in Vaastav. His red tikka, white kurta and golden chains are still a trend!
The list would be incomplete without the tall and handsome Amitabh who first played the role of a Don.
