Sridevi, Rani, SRK, Hrithik: Bollywood's FAMOUS disguises
Vidya Balan's many avatars in her newest film Bobby Jasoos made us revisit all these other curious disguises we've seen on the big screen.
There has been a huge buzz about Vidya Balan's many avatars in her new detective film ever since it was announced.
While our reviewer came back unimpressed from the film's screening, it sent us digging into movie archives for other such epic disguises we've seen in films before.
Here's what we found:
One among many to follow, this Sridevi picture was recently shared by the actress on Twitter.
It was taken from the sets of her ill-fated 1989 film Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja, where she played a con woman.

In the Yash Raj film Dil Bole Hadippa that released in 2009, Rani Mukerji plays a young and feisty girl -- as well as her own little brother -- in a Punjab village.
A cricket fanatic, assuming the identity of a boy is the only way she can get herself in the village's cricket team to play.

As a thief par excellence and a master of disguises, Hrithik Roshan steals the show in Dhoom 2.
His smooth criminal Aryan is stuff celluloid dreamboats are made of.

Vinod Khanna, Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan
Legendary trio --Vinod Khanna, Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan -- in this Manmohan Desai multistarrer hit of 1977 was a sight to behold.
Even more so in disguise.

In the uproariously funny and heartwarming Chachi 420, Kamal Haasan's Chachi act was great fun to watch.
His Laxmi Godbole is street-smart, compassionate and fights off goons when the need arises.
Pretty impressive and nimble for her age, don't you think?

One of the few actors of his time with a mind-bending range, Govinda could slip into any eccentric character with ease that was unique to him.
Take this poser aunty from his 1998 comedy for instance.
He completely owns this pretend-royal widow act to say the least.

In his 1963 film Bluff Master, the legendary Shammi Kapoor does the whole nine yards for a song sequence.
Look at that expression and let out a sigh.
We know we did.

In the madcap comedy Andaz Apna Apna, directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, Aamir Khan disguises his Amar as an old man to heckle his hapless rival Prem.
What ensues is unprecedented hilarity.
AAA loyalists will agree.

Vinod Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan
Before they reunited for Amar Akbar Anthony, Khanna and the Big B came together for the first time for Hera Pheri in 1976.
