10 Hindi Film Actors Who Are Considered ‘Super Serious’ But Have Spectacular Comic Timing

Bollywood actors get typecasted a lot.

They do a bunch of heavy performance-based roles and are immediately considered as ‘serious actor types’. Industry and audience alike stereotype them. They are actors, they can adapt themselves as per the tone of the script. Great actors make any role seem effortless.

These Bollywood actors have forever been known as great actors and serious performers. Thanks to great scripts, now we know that they have epic comic timing.

#1. Nawazuddin Siddiqui

From a cameo in Dev D to a more commercial Raees, he has shown that behind the serious facade he has a cracking sense of humor. Chand Nawab’s funny lines from Bajrangi Bhaijaan are still memorable.

Vidya Balan is a chameleon in front of the camera. Her comic timing is effortless. Even though Bobby Jasoos and Ghanchakkar did not hit big at the box office, they did give us a glimpse of her comic talent.

#5. Kangana Ranaut

No one can claim the otherwise serious Kangana Ranaut is not great at comedy. Tanu Weds Manu and its sequel were proof enough of that.

#6. Saurabh Shukla

This character actor has worked in the grittiest of films. He, however, has a cracking style of comic dialogue delivery. He has some of the sassiest lines in films. Thanks to him, Jolly LLB 2 redeemed itself.

#7. Ajay Devgn

He is known for his angry guy seeking justice roles. But with the Golmaal franchise, we saw him taking a hiatus from serious roles. Had it not been for these films, we’d never have known that he is pretty great at comedy.

#8. Naseeruddin Shah

“Guanrantee! Main kya aapko pankha bech raha hun?”, could this dialogue have been iconic were it not for him. A serious film like A Wednesday and still his sharp wit shows through. He is truly a director’s dream when it comes to comedy.

She is a firecracker on screen and her sharp dialogue delivery is unparalleled. Her timing in Tamanchey and Fukrey was exceptional. We really hope she did more of comedy!
