Bollywood loves excitement, confusion, contrasts and surprises. Double roles provide them in abundance. No wonder from Ram Aur Shyam to Rowdy Rathore, the fascination just doesn't end.

Almost every actor loves to portray a dual role at least once in his or her career. And quite a few have made a lasting impression doing just that. Still many more are gearing up to experience the same.

Here's a look at some of Bollywood's exciting double roles to hit screens soon.

Ameesha Patel, Desi Magic

From blink and miss roles in multistarrers to a double role in her newly launched production house, Ameesha Patel sure knows how to give her career a new lease of life.

In her ambitious project, Desi Magic, the Race 2 star plays two very different girls -- Mahi, a sweet, girl-next-door and Sonia, the wild one.

In Yash Raj's latest film Aurangzeb, which sends out strong whiffs of The Departed in its promos, Arjun Kapoor plays a cop and a crook who have only one thing in common -- appearance.

How it used as a tool by the protectors of law to plant the good guy in the bad guy's place and nab crime-based information forms the crux of the plot.

It also introduces Pakistani actress and singer Salma Agha's daughter Sashaa in films.

Himmatwala may have tasted dust but director Sajid Khan, along with producer Sajid Nadiadwala, is slated to reunite with Judwaa 2.

If the film indeed takes off, it's interesting that Saif Ali Khan and not Salman Khan will be reprising the role of unlike twins who can sense each other's pain.

Anand L Rai's Tanu Weds Manu sequel may have been delayed but it's certainly on the cards.

Rohit Shetty was keen to cast Shah Rukh Khan in Sanjeev Kumar's role for his remake of Gulzar's comic classic. Apparently, the Golmaal director found it too humble a project for his vision and decided to put it on hold and concentrate on Chennai Express instead.

If the Angoor remake does take off, which going by the pressing trend it will, it will be interesting to see SRK revert to his 'Double Shah Rukh. Single Rate. Aao dekho Duplicate' motto.
