Bollywood is infamous for making the same movies over and over again, and for typecasting actors. If you look closely, you will see that several of the industry’s stars have made a career out of playing the same roles. Confused? Here are some examples.

Ranbir Kapoor

Before you go all guns blazing at us, we’d like to draw your attention to some movies featuring Kapoor. From Wake Up Sid, Rockstar, and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani to Tamasha and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Kapoor has played the lost man-child character over and over again. It’s almost always the same trope…a confused man who finds himself after a manic pixie dream girl fixes his life. Honestly, it’s getting a bit tiring.

Kartik Aaryan

It won’t be wrong to say that Aaryan has become a household name for being a serial misogynist who despises women in almost all of his films. What started as a breakout role in Pyaar Ka Punchnama has now become his niche. Only time will tell if Aaryan is capable of playing anything other than a man with a sexist monologue.

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja

It’s a truth, universally acknowledged, that Kapoor Ahuja plays herself in many of her movies. Case in point: Aisha, Players, Bewakoofiyan, Khoobsurat, Veere Di Wedding, The Zoya Factor. Basically, a rich, privileged woman with first world problems. Even in the movies where Kapoor Ahuja has stepped into the shoes of a middle-class woman, she hasn’t been able to get her diction right.

Nushrat Bharucha

If you watched a video cut of Bharucha’s roles, you wouldn’t be able to tell one from the other. Bharucha has made a career out of playing the desirable woman who takes innocent men for a ride. To be quite honest, it’s a travesty because Bharucha seems like a promising actor who is capable of delivering much more than what she’s restricted to.

Varun Dhawan

Dhawan’s filmography has as much variety as the Diwali gifts your relatives send every year. He has truly mastered the art of playing a lover boy who woos the girl, overcomes a few hardships, and then gets married. Although he has fashioned himself after Govinda, he hasn’t been able to mimic the latter’s versatility.

Do you have any more names to add to the list? If yes, let us know in the comments.
