Appearing in a cameo in a film is the latest trend in Bollywood, as many A-listers make a beeline for small roles in upcoming films. Here’s a list of the superstars who will soon be seen in guest appearances.
For: Tell Me O Khudda
Actor Salman Khan will be soon seen in a special appearance in veteran actor Hema Malini’s upcoming directorial venture Tell Me O Kkhuda, which is touted to be a relaunch vehicle for her daughter, actor Esha Deol. Hema, who has recently joined the social networking website Twitter, confirmed the news through a tweet that read, “Salman Khan has been very gracious to be a part of my film Tell Me O Khuda. What an adorable person!!!!(sic)” Reportedly, Khan will be seen in a song with Deol in the film that releases on September 30.
For: English Vinglish
Actor Amitabh Bachchan will be seen in a cameo appearance in actor Sridevi’s comeback film English Vinglish, which is being directed by Gauri Shinde (wife of Paa director R.Balki). Talking about the cameo, Balki was quoted as saying, “It’s actually a two-day cameo for Mr Bachchan, and not an afterthought. Gauri had written the cameo with Mr Bachchan in mind. It’s actually a very funny midair cameo. And only Mr Bachchan could do it.”
Actor Priyanka Chopra will be seen in a cameo in actor Shah Rukh Khan’s ambitious project Ra.One, which also stars actor Kareena Kapoor in the lead role. Apparently, Chopra would be performing an ‘item-action-sequence’ in the film. Reportedly, she will have superhuman abilities so that she can match up to Khan on-screen during the action sequence, which is being touted to be one of the highlights of the movie. She will also be doing a lot of stunts in the film. Chopra even tweeted about the cameo saying, “On my way to set to shoot for Raone. Should be super fun (sic).”
Veteran actor Hema Malini will be seen in a cameo opposite Amitabh Bachchan in Prakash Jha’s Aarakshan. In February, Bachchan tweeted about the same saying, “Hemaji joins us for the shooting of ‘Aarakshan’ .. a cameo but all looking forward to her arrival ... ‘Baghban’ remembered (sic),” Reportedly, Malini’s role is very short but strong in this film. She has acted with Bachchan in many movies such as Satte Pe Satta, Sholay, Baghban and Baabul among others.
If the reports are to be believed, then actor Karisma Kapur, who is making her comeback with Vikram Bhatt’s Dangerous Ishq, will be seen playing a part in Salman Khan starrer upcoming film Bodyguard. The film, which releases later this month stars Karisma’s sister Kareena Kapoor in the lead role. Quite a sister act we must say. Actor Sanjay Dutt will also be doing a cameo in the same film.
Shah Rukh Khan
For: Love Breakups Zindagi
Actor Shah Rukh Khan will reportedly be doing a cameo in actors Zayed Khan and Dia Mirza’s debut production Love Breakups Zindagi. “Since both Dia and Zayed have known SRK, they decided to request him to do a special appearance in the film. And SRK, who has always valued friendship, has agreed to do so,” reveals a source. Apparently, Zayed was keen on roping in brother-in-law Hrithik Roshan for doing the same cameo, but there were date issues.
