Bollywood's 10 MOST Evil Laughs!
Mogambo's thundering laugh is carved in every movie buff's memory!
Bollywood is seldom about restraint. Especially where the villain is concerned.
Loud costumes, over-the-top get-ups, bombastic dialogues and a sinful smile underscored by the sound of an unmistakably vile glee are what distinguish him from the good guy.
Bet you did a double take on hearing Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s hammy take on the beloved ‘muahahaha’ in upcoming Salman Khan action vehicle, Kick.
We did too.
On that note, here’s a look at Bollywood’s variety of evil laughs.
Amrish Puri, Mr India

Amjad Khan, Sholay
While on the topic of mean, can Gabbar Singh be far behind?
Amjad Khan shows how it’s done with his chilling, changeable temperament in the iconic Sholay.
One moment, he’s all threats, another, he breaks into a mad fit of demonic laughter.
Third and, bang, you’re dead.

Shabana Azmi, Makdee
Her hell-raising avatar as Makdee’s evil witch earned Shabana Azmi a lot of rave reviews.
But it’s not just the prosthetics contributing to the scares; the veteran creates an atmosphere of horror with her eerie, witchy cackle that’s bound to terrify both kids and adults.

Shah Rukh Khan, Baazigar
It's creepy. It's weird. It's unusual.
Love or hate, it's simply impossible to forget SRK's manic; spluttering, 'now you've had it' laugh after Dalip Tahil's Madan Chopra stabs an iron rod into his gut.

Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Shaan
Modeled around a Bond antagonist, Kulbhushan Kharbanda’s Shakaal in Shaan may be a picture of sleek sophistication. But the ruthless tone of his sly laugh is what still sends a shiver down our spine.

Salman Khan, Andaz Apna Apna
Salman Khan’s rivalry with Aamir in Andaz Apna Apna is akin to watching Tom & Jerry in live action.
And that moment where the much-bullied Sallu finally gets to embarrass AK, he does so uncontrollably, bursting into a hyena-like laughter with pure evil on his mind.

Sanjay Dutt, Agneepath
As the devilish Kancha Cheena devoid of remorse or conscience, Sanjay Dutt slips into the skin of a full-fledged khalnayak in the Agneepath remake with the face of an ogre and the laugh of a lunatic.

Prem Chopra, Bobby
“Prem naam hai mera, Prem Chopra.”
Prem Chopra embodies all things slimy as he repeatedly introduces himself in the final few reels of Raj Kapoor’s Bobby with a creepy chuckle that would become his trademark.

Rohini Hattangadi, Chaalbaaz
Technically it's Sridevi who's the source of all evil in this scene. But it's amusing to watch Rohini Hattangadi's vampy stepmom getting a dose of her own medicine after Sri paints her face with oodles of make-up prompting her to titter on command.
The sight is both hideous and hilarious.
