This week, we look at the several occasions where a newcomer (only a few films old, if not the debutant) was given the role of an over-the-top villain in a lavishly mounted saga – often pitting him against established stars of the times.

We bring you Filmy Friday, a column by Diptakirti Chaudhuri.
Chaudhuri is crazy about Bollywood. In fact, he is crazy enough to have
written a book on Bollywood trivia. He can be found on Twitter and
Blogger by his first name.
