2018 can easily be declared as the year of writers and directors in Bollywood who brought some unique stories to the forefront and of the actors whose performance redefined cinematic brilliance.

These were the performances that were relatable not because we saw ourselves in those amazingly well-written characters, but because their performance spoke to us, irrespective of the age they played or the society they belonged to.

So here are 7 actors who played their age and the nailed their parts -

Gajraj Rao in Badhaai Ho - Neena Gupta and Gajrao Rao were the true leads of the movie that was centered around an older couple's unexpected pregnancy. Gajraj Rao's endearing performance brought vulnerability to his character that we fell in love with.

Neena Gupta in Badhaai Ho - Neena Gupta's portrayal of a housewife, balancing her family, an unexpected pregnancy, and her children were spot on. Her natural performance was so relatable that everyone could see their own mother in her.

Tabu in Andhadhun - Tabu has been delivering performances with layered characters since she won the audiences and critics with her role in Maachis. But Tabu performance e slightly psychopathic, completely practical and rarely emotional widow in Andhadhun proved that artistic performances never go out of style.

Rishi Kapoor in Mulk - Mulk was a much-needed movie for us as it tackled with the religious intolerance that is gripping our country slowly. Rishi Kapoor's impassioned performance left an indelible impact on the audience as the actor was absolutely convincing as a man fighting for the right to lead a judgment-free existence in his own country.

Gitanjali Rao in October - One of the finest performances of 2018 which touched our very soul was Geetanjali Rao's performance in October. The actress played her role with unrelenting conviction as a mother to a comatose daughter, who has to watch her young daughter die and battle, not just her own grief, but also help her daughter's friend in the process.

Jaideep Ahlawat in Raazi - Alia Bhatt blew us all away with her performance in Raazi but Jaideep Ahlawat's role as a stoic teacher to Alia left a strong impact with us. Audiences could resonate with his character that even though he was a hard taskmaster, he had some deeply buried emotions within himself.

Surekha Sikri in Badhaai Ho - Bollywood has seen few but fine performances of on-screen grandmothers like Kamlesh Gill from Vicky Donor, and Zohra Sehgal from Cheeni Kum. Surekha Sikri absolutely nailed her performance as a sharp-tongued but warm-hearted grandmother in Badhaai Ho. From her rant on finding out her son and daughter-in-law are pregnant to her sharp remarks defending her daughter-in-law, the actress was a treat to watch!
