Bollywood actors always try to get into the skin of their characters. Regardless of whether the character is a negative, a romantic, or a mentally or physically challenged one, the talented actors of B-Town have managed to portray their roles with ease.
From Rani Mukerji to Hrithik Roshan, all these superstars have nailed it with their performances as differently-abled characters.
Here is a List of B-Town Actors who Portrayed Differently-Abled Characters:
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan gave a brilliant performance in "Paa" where he portrayed a 12-year-old, suffering from progeria. The legend won National Award for Best Actor for his role.
Shah Rukh Khan
Shah Rukh Khan mesmerised the audience with his mindblowing acting in "My Name Is Khan." He played the role of Rizwan Khan who suffers from asperger's syndrome. He again proved that why he is called as King Khan of Bollywood.
"Exotic" singer-actress, Priyanka Chopra, stunned audience with her performance as an autistic girl in "Barfi!" The actress went through a three-day workshop to prep up for the role and to prove that she was right for the role.
Ranbir Kapoor played deaf and dumb in "Barfi!" and his character was also inspired by his grandfather Raj Kapoor and comedy legend Charlie Chaplin.
Hrithik Roshan has put himself in such roles twice. One, in "Koi Mil Gaya," where he was a 21-year-old man with a seven-year-old's brain. And second, in "Guzaarish" where he played the character of a magician who gets paralysed.
Rani Mukerji did a tremendous job in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Black." She played the character of Michelle, who is blind and deaf and cannot speak properly. The actress had to learn sign language and Braille for seven months for this film, which was inspired by Hellen Keller's life.
