In any Bollywood film, when there is a dashing hero, there has to be an equally stylish villain. Without the villain, no story can be written and so here is a special compilation of Bollywood’s most iconic villains. They got us scared and at the same time made us laugh with their weird trends and funky names. While today, your heroes may be the ones flaunting Gucci, in the 80s and 90s the villains had their own swagger and it is their dressing and styling that mattered more.

Here is a compilation of Bollywood’s most iconic villains:
