Geet’s dialogue ‘main apni favourite hu’ taught us so much of self love. Geet made her own rules so that she can own up her mistakes too. She refused to settle for a compromise in love.
One of the iconic bollywood characters is Rancho from 3 idiots! 3 Idiots is a 2009 coming-of-age comedy-drama film and directed by Rajkumar Hirani. There are some characters which come home with you, sticking to your mind, heart and emotions. Ranchoddas Shamaldas Chanchad aka Phunsukh Wangdu from 3 Idiots was the latter. Rancho played by Aamir Khan remains etched in our memories, and the ‘Aal izz Well’ is still our motivation. His point of view towards education made every student hit their brains. And surely his character made a great impact.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani a romantic drama film, directed by Ayan Mukherji. No one could play chashmish better than Deepika padukone did. She lived the character.”Jitna bhi try karo Bunny life me kuch na kuch toh chootega hi. Toh jahan ho wahin ka mazaa lete hai”. Naina’s words definitely strike a chord in our hearts. She is total inspiration when she turns from unconfident Scholar Naina to fearless, independent Doctor Naina Talwar is surely an iconic bollywood character!
Padmaavat is a 2018 epic period drama film directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Khilji, played by ranveer singh brought us goosebumps.

Sholay a 1975 action-adventure film ,directed by Ramesh Sippy was a all time hit. Beautiful Hema malina had played this confident character. ” Basanti Inn Kutto Ke Samne Mat Nachna” is enough to know how much craze this character had brought.

Despite extortion calls, he is the go-to person for everyone. Also despite threats of kidnapping, he is scared of his parents.
Hera Pheri comedy film directed by Priyadarshan, in year 2000.Apart from its hilarious dialogues and comedy of errors, major credit goes to one man who lifts the movie entirely – Baburao Ganpatrao Apte aka Babu Bhaiya played by powerhouse performer Paresh Rawal.
