5 Bollywood Characters Who Would Die First in a Classic Horror Movie

5 Bollywood characters who would die first in a classic horror movie

In the world of Bollywood, where drama, romance, and song-and-dance sequences reign supreme, horror films often take a backseat. However, if we were to transplant some of our favorite Bollywood characters into a classic horror movie, it's not hard to imagine who might be the first to meet a spine-chilling demise. Embark on a thrilling cinematic adventure and speculate on the fates of these five Bollywood characters who might find themselves in the unenviable position of being the earliest casualties in a classic horror flick.

  1. Rancho: Yes, we do not think the prodigy from 3 idiots is going to cut. We are all well aware of his inquisitiveness and valor for all things stupid. One can safely assume that Mr. Chanchad will not only be the first person to investigate uncanny sounds coming from ominous corners of the haunted house but also potentially whip out his trusted screwdriver in an attempt to fix the forever creaking doors.

  2. Inspector Chulbul Pandey: From catching criminals to flaunting his “criminal” dance moves, Pandey Ji is a legendary cop indeed. However, we must admit, that marrying one’s daughter the very next day following their death is flabbergasting. Certainly one of those reasons that compels souls to roam the earth in a fury or rage, ravenous for revenge (or whatever The Grudge taught us). On the occasion of a supernatural contingency, we envision his father-in-law at his doorstep at 3 a.m. He might even say “Swaagat nahi karoge humara?” just for the laughs.

  3. Pooja Sharma aka Pooh: The gorgeous diva from K3G is a timeless icon, but her probability of surviving seems slim. Not just because the attractive ones are always the first ones to go. We can only imagine how annoyed she would be if the ghost dared not target her first. “Kaun hai ye? Jisne murkar  mujhe nahi dekha? Who is he?” Indeed. God forbid, the phantom kills her in a hideous or ugly way. “Ugh, Minus!!!”

  4. Baburao: The hilarious Baburao Ganpatrao Apte is the epitome of comedic relief in Bollywood. ‘Hera Pheri’ is truly the comfort movie one craves at the end of every deplorable day. The only drawback is the glasses. Yes, yes, we understand “Yeh Baburao ka style hai” but he is practically as blind as a bat without them. This renders him the perfect prey for the classic ‘Main character loses his glasses and the demon is right behind him’ theme. Ultimately, the antagonists are notoriously swift and we’re afraid of “Sunday ko aa. Sunday ko mast naha dhoke aa.” is not a viable option.

  5. Thakur from Sholay: **crickets chirping**
