So here’s taking a look at few performance of side actors who stole our heart.

There are many actors who played the role of Dawood Ibrahim on-screens in various films but the one created and defined by Anurag Kashyap in the film ‘Black Friday’ will always be remembered in the books of Indian cinema. This portrayal of ‘Dawood’ by Vijay Maurya yet remains unmatched as he did it perfectly without any flaws. It’s a small scene between Dawood Phanse and Dawood Ibrahim but it’s too creatively shot by Kashyap. With a less screen time, Vijay as Ibrahim steals the show in Black Friday.

Seema Pahwa (Shubh Mangal Saavdhan)

But one of her best is in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan as she plays Bhumi Pednekar’s mom and the scene where she is giving sex lessons to her is one of the epic comic scenes in Bollywood.
