Best Character Artistes 2013
Usually, the term “character artiste” is accompanied by an unspoken sense of disdain, almost meaning the actor plays “second fiddle” to the hero or heroine in charge. However, think back to all of your favourite films from the past. They wouldn’t be the same without the
humble character actor, the side hero who weaves himself so beautifully into the tale, that you almost don’t notice that he is acting. He seems like one of us- the friend, the brother, the teacher, the employee, the mother, the father.
In the olden days, character artistes were a permanent fixture in most films. Actors like Iftekhar, Reema Lagoo, Mac Mohan, Bob Christo, Pran, Danny Denzongpa and a multitude of others, talented as they were, always remained character actors to a certain extent. Nevertheless, their presence in a film only heightened the effectiveness of the plot.
