12 Legendary Supporting Actors From The 90s We Miss In Today’s Films

The 90s were a surprising time for Bollywood. We moved from the ‘angry young man’ roles to heroes who knew how to laugh at themselves. We had our Govindas entertaining audience besides the Khans and all was well in the world. But if you look through each of their hits, there is a distinct pattern. Supporting characters contributed more than they were often credited for, they made our 90s films iconic.

In the 90s, supporting characters were not just an afterthought. Their roles were scripted into the screenplay.

Here are some iconic actors from 90s Bollywood we wish were active today.

#1. Guddi Maruti

Guddi Maruti featured in movies like Biwi No 1, Chamatkar and Khiladi.
