Is it true that people prefer short and sweet? IndiaFM presents to you a little photo feature on some of the little midgets that we have or will be seeing this year in Bollywood.
Anupam Kher going the Appu Raja way made news. Check him out over here minus about 2 feet from his body in Shirish Kunder's film Jaan-e-Mann. "I had to be on my knees for 40 shootings days. It was the most painful thing in the world", said he. Check him out in the film where he dances as well along with Salman Khan. However word is that his role is more digitalized as compared to Appu Raja.
We have seen quite a few dwarfs in the Sunny Deol-Viveik Oberoi starrer Naksha where we saw about 150 of these little people in the film. Director Sachin Bajaj said that they had picked up dwarfs from all over India to fit into the film. Here they play the role of tribal from a jungle and for some comic element their race is shown as short. Check them out in the song Jat Yamla dancing with our very own Sunny paaji.
The other picture is a still from the movie Bhoot Unkle starring Jackie Shroff. A kiddies film, the dwarf here plays an integral role in the film.
