Playing cameos in movies has become a trend. Some actors work for free, while some don’t, nevertheless cameos just make a striking performance in the movie. Many movies have actors who have acted as themselves and were highly appreciated. Guest appearances have not been a novelty but it has been a colloquial thing in the industry since the era of 60s and 70s. What happens when the actors play their Real selves in the Reel life? Well, we love them even more!


Check out the actors who played their Real selves in the Reel:

Salman Khan

In Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, the character played by Katrina Kaif is shown to be a Salman Khan fan. Thus, there is a scene where a die-hard fan character of her meets Salman Khan – the star. Salman essayed himself quite literally as he is shown giving autograph to his beloved fan. We could completely see his ‘superstar’ persona on screen!

Amitabh Bachchan

It’s hard to miss Big B when he plays himself. In Bombay Talkies, a fan goes all around the world just to give “murabba” to Amitabh Bachchan as per his father’s wish and at last he meets him in an overjoyed moment. Particularly, I like this scene because it might be a dream for thousands of people to meet the angry young man.

Katrina Kaif

This was the first movie of Katrina Kaif, where she did a guest appearance as herself in Bombay Talkies. A small kid wants to be dancer like Katrina Kaif from the famed Sheila Ki Jawani song. In a dream sequence, Katrina is seen talking to the kid about his passion for dancing. Indeed it became a very cute scene in the movie.

Ranbir Kapoor

Remember bubbly queen Juhi Chawla’s cameo role in Andaz Apna Apna? When her car breaks down and meets Aamir Khan on the way. Later they became an item in the movie. And I must say it was a pleasure to see our Qayamat couple together in the film.

Hrithik Roshan
