Sanjay Dutt, Agneepath
Though the look is blatantly modeled on Marlon Brando’s Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now, Sanjay Dutt’s bald-headed, bulging eyeballs menace in Agneepath ensures he holds his own in a part made immortal by Danny Denzongpa as Kancha Cheena.

Sanjay Dutt, Kartoos
And with Sanjay Gupta’s Kartoos, Dutt unleashes his intemperate persona a tad more strongly than Khalnayak with brooding fury, braided hair and bloodshot eyes.

Kamal Haasan, Abhay
Kamal Haasan tackles a double role in his strange, graphic Abhay wherein one of his characters is a mentally unstable man plagued by the memories of his evil stepmother seeking unreasonable vengeance.
And thanks to his creepy appearance, it’s easy to tell him apart from his saner, sensible twin.

Akshay Kumar, Jaanwar
In this A Perfect World rip-off, Akshay Kumar transforms into a wild Yanni lookalike.
Interestingly, this one time, a character sports a severe, intimidating look after he’s turned new leaf as opposed to his suave demeanour as mobman’s dependable sidekick.
