Most Underrated Actors that We Would Love to See More Often on Big Screen


Plenty of talented actors in Bollywood are still underrated despite giving stellar performances in their previous films. While some actors like Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pankaj Tripathi have finally found the deserved success, a few actors still go under the radar. Nushrratt Bharuccha, an actress with skills and persona, recently reminded viewers of her acting prowess with social comedy Janhit Mein Jaari. However, the buzz has started to die down, and the talented actress is again getting lost in the obscurity. Many like her are appreciated by the audiences but do not get enough chances to display their skills on big screens. Flickonclick celebrates these artists in this article.

Most underrated actors we just can’t get enough of are:

Perhaps the most criminally underrated actor in the Hindi film industry. Randeep Hooda has been excellent throughout his career, and his roles have shown his dedication to his work. No one can forget his epic transformation for the film Sarbjit. He almost risked his life to bring that character in its originality to the viewers. His work ethic is second to none. Moreover, he has a charisma and aura that can charm anyone. Even then, he is being given limited opportunities in Bollywood. Despite his versatility, he is one of the most underused and underrated actors in Bollywood.

Best Works of Randeep Hooda:

  • Sarbjit
  • Highway
  • Main Aur Charles
  • Rang Rasiya- Colors of Passion

Most of his films are thrillers or social dramas. He has been appreciated by critics and audiences for most of his roles. Still, Menon remains one of the underrated actors of Bollywood.
