We can safely say that Salman Khan is solely responsible for the comeback of the action star in Bollywood now-a-days. With his skull-crushing punches and concrete-powdering kicks, the audiences just can’t have enough of the textbook action hero getting back at the bad guys. Koimoi.com celebrates the dishoom dishoom heroes of Bollywood:
Be it Garv, Wanted, Dabangg or Bodyguard, Salman Khan won’t think twice before ripping off his shirt and showing his toned physique. And not just show off, he’ll beat the villains with a water hose, concrete slab and whatever he can lay his hands on! Wonder whether we’ll get the dose of his action in Ek Tha Tiger…
Bollywood’s favourite stuntman can show the bad guys their place with a few martial arts moves. Akshay Kumar may not have the much-coveted multiple-pack-abs, but he’s always top-of-mind among the knuckle-cracking stars of Bollywood. After all, for years, he played the khiladi over and over again…
Picture this: Ajay Devgan (complete with glares) makes his entry on a bike and zooms into the screen. This is the same Ajay whose “Aata majhi satakli” had theatres echo with audiences’ applause. Indeed, the son of stuntmaster Veeru, lives up to his father’s name by slamming his opponents’ face in the mud, whether it be in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, Singham or his earlier action films.
The dhai kilo ka haath will always be remembered for uprooting a hand-pump and sending an army whimpering back to its camp. Sunny Deol is still the baap of action as Yamla Pagla Deewana showed us. Hopefully, we will see him step on the gas in Ghayal Returns.
Sanju baba may not rank high when it comes to physique, but he can definitely show the villains their place. And looking at the promos of Agneepath, we’re sure he’s going to give us a pretty good action show with Hrithik Roshan.
