Not all movies can entertain with double or triple roles. After the debacle of Humshakals, we are thrilled to jot down some Bollywood movies which had multiple roles of an actor. However, very few movies have managed to entertain and win hearts with one or more actors playing multiple roles.
Seeing double and triple roles is not new. We have seen it in
hit movies like Krissh and Mahaan. However, some
of the Bollywood movies like Humshakals failed to impress
with Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Ram Kapoor playing not
just one but triple roles. It was a complete confusion and
irritation as one was not tolerable and then 3!
Some of the upcoming Bollywood movies like No
Entry Mein Entry has actors Fardeen Khan, Anil Kapoor and
Salman Khan playing triple roles. Another movie is Bobby
Jasoos where Vidya has carried different looks as a female
detective. The trailer of Bobby Jasoos looks entertaining
and Vidya with her talent and acting skills can win hearts and
prove that an actor playing multiple roles can win hearts and box
office as well. Lets wait and watch for No Entry
Here is a list of Bollywood movies where actors played multiple
roles. However, these movies flopped miserably and failed to rule
the box office. For example, Govinda who was once the comedy King of

However, even after cross-dressing and carrying different
characters, Govinda failed to make the movie an entertaining
package. Check out other Bollywood stars who flopped in multiple

indigestible, and then triple roles. It was a complete
Threesome was more of a confusion. No wonder the movie failed to
win audience's heart.
Seriously seeing Ram Kapoor romancing his other role as a
cross-dressed woman was disastrous!
Priyanka wins the cake here. She not only tried 2-3 roles, but
total 12 different roles representing each sun sign characters in
What's Your Rashee.
Shahrukh too played multiple roles in English Babu Desi Mem. SRK
was seen playing 3 different roles in the movie which flopped
Govinda has tried many looks in his comedy flicks. However, his
multiple roles in flop movie Hadh Kar Di Aapne was not at all
impressive, and looked more forced.
In Achanak, Johnny Lever played triple roles which was hard to
The veteran actor has also played multiple roles in Mushir-Riaz
flop movie, Bairaag. Dilip not only played the father but the two
sons of the same father as well. So, we saw one old and 2 younger
version of Dilip on-screen at the same time. The script is almost
next to impossible. No wonder, the movie flopped.
The confused story and poor script lead to the failure of
Dharmendra's triple role in Jeeo Shaan Se.
Mithun is seen playing 3 different characters in Rangbaaz which
too is another flop movie.
