When the mainstream commercial films in the region used to end with scene portraying fight between the villain and the hero, the importance of the negative characters is disappearing in many contemporary films.
Many films are produced these days in the region, especially in Kolkata and Mumbai, where the villain’s character is given special emphasis.
Actor Shakti Kapoor, who acted in villain in many Bollywood films, laments disappearance of villains from modern cinema.
At a programme with another Bollywood villain Gulshan Grover, Shakti said Bollywood had always been adamant on creating a unique experience for a villain’s character, but a romantic sequence by a villain could only happen in the modern times.
‘As the trend is changing, and the villains are disappearing in this modern cinema, an actor has to be very versatile and good with every role,’ Shakti said, reports Hindustan Times citing IANS.
Agreeing with his thoughts Gulshan said, ‘Cinema has taken acting to a whole new level, we don’t see anyone playing a dedicated role of a villain in modern movies. So, keeping the changing trend in mind, the actors have to be good and engrossed with all the roles.’
