It is a general opinion that doing comedy is difficult. Having said that, there are certain Bollywood actors who have excelled in this field thereby tinkling the humorous bone in the audience. Here, we take a tour at the most-loved comedy actors of Hindi cinema. It is to be noted the list not only consists of comedians but also lead actors in a comic role. This list is not in a particular order but is just an exhibition of accolades for the great performances by these actors.
Generally, Hindi movies inserted comic scenes in order to divert from the otherwise serious story. But Kishore Kumar is an exception to this. He was exceptional in comedy and whether it is his singing, dancing or laughing there was a comic stint to it in his roles. He had an eccentric look which helped in sending the audience to the hilarious mood.
Akshay Kumar is very much at ease with comedy. He has made great performances in films including Housefull 2, Housefull, Singh is King and Welcome (to name a few). Akshay has expressed sadness in one of his interviews that comedy is not getting its right due. Very true Mr. Khiladi!
We have seen this talented actor in many Hindi films and he has carried comedy as well as negativity with equal ease. Hungama, Hera Pheri, Andaz Apna Apna, Welcome, Awara Paagal Deewana are some of the films in which he depicted comic sense beautifully.
Govinda was lapped by the audiences during the 1990s for his good comedy films. He is such a funny actor to watch and his movies including “Coolie No. 1”, “Hero No. 1” , “Saajan Chale Sasural”, “Bade Miyan Chhote Miyan”, “Dulhe Raja” are memorable. Comedy comes naturally to him. Though some of his films were below average his comic timing was the saving grace for those films.
