Gone are the days when Bollywood's staple villains had blood-shot eyes, signature walk, and a catchphrase. But now even mainstream heroes don't mind going bad. Villains are the reason that the heroes get an edge on the silver screen. In fact, the more terrifying the villain the more interesting the conflict between good and evil becomes.

So here are 6 times when good guys of Bollywood nailed the role of a villain -

Riteish Deshmukh in Ek Villain - After giving us forgettable performances in Masti, Kya Kool Hai Hum, Heyy Baby, Riteish Deshmukh reinvented himself in Mohit Suri's Ek Villain as a frustrated, henpecked middle-class Rakesh whose wife thinks he is good for nothing and vents his frustration by killing innocent women.


Shah Rukh Khan in Darr & Baazigar - Both Darr and Baazigar proved to be the first milestone in Shah Rukh Khan's career on his journey to become King Khan he is today. Despite playing a mentally disturbed, obsessive lover in Darr and as a guy seeking vengeance in Baazigar, Shah Rukh shined in his roles and set himself firmly in people's hearts.


Ranveer Singh In Padmaavat - After giving back-to-back hits with SLB's Ram Leela and Bajirao Mastani, it wasn't surprising when Ranveer Singh did a hat-trick on the box-office with Padmaavat. The actor's portrayal as a ruthless invader who is also a bisexual shattered the glass ceiling in Indian film writing.


Amitabh Bachchan In Aks and Aankhen - Megastar Amitabh Bachchan once again proved that he can get slip into the shoes of any character. His role in Aankhen as a vengeful bank official who manipulates 3 blind men to rob a bank was done to perfection. Also Rakesh Omprakash Mehra's debut movie Aks saw him essaying a role of a cop and a killer and can be considered one of his best performances, if not the best.


Sanjay Dutt In Agneepath - Sanjay Dutt gave a career-defying role as Kancha Cheena, a ruthless crime lord in Agneepath. His herculean physique, a bald head without eye-brows and a menacing laugh got a huge thumbs up from audience and critics alike.


Saif Ali Khan In Omkara - Many might say playing Sartaj Singh in Sacred Games brought Saif back to the limelight but, it was Langda Tyagi in Omkara that awakened us to the actor that Saif could be. His sinister smile, manipulative ways, conniving tactics and an evil plan to hatch his revenge made Tygai one of Saif's memorable performance.
