Horror Queen of Bollywood

Posted by Kokolicious on January 28th, 2009


Horror movies have always needed a pretty girl with an awesome set of lungs. Sure, they look for awesome sets of everything, these canny casting directors, but it really is imperative that the leading ladies in any half-decent (or even completely awful) scare-fest be able to screech the audience’s ears off. Urmila Matondkar, for instance, has long been the genre’s resident diva. Of course, after her most recent outing opposite a certain baseball-capped singer — wherein said singer outshone her in the acting department, heck, the coffee table did better than her — directors of bhootiya schlock have been hunting for a new face.

Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut, somehow Bollywood’s first pick whenever it comes to roles demanding weeping, drunkenness and hysteria. As the makers of Raaz: The Mystery Continues have cleverly judged, there’s a thin line between schizophrenia and, say, being possessed, which makes her ideal for the genre. Here then, for the sake of our fearmongers, are a set of other actresses who we think might fit the scary movie bill.

Deepika Padukone

An ethereal beauty, she could adequately be cast in a remake of Mahal. Imagine Deepika flitting through corridors, wearing gossamer garments and lit dramatically enough to sinisterise her luminous features. Her debut film, Om Shanti Om, featured Deepika in similar vein as a reincarnated version of her pretended to play a ghost, and judging from Arjun Rampal’s reaction, he had either been given a monologue to memorise, or the girl can indeed be effectively frightening.

Vidya Balan

Big eyes? Check. Big smile? Check. Why then are we even considering the Parineeta girl for a horror movie? Hmm. Imagine, if you will, a plot featuring a fashion designer hero. Imagine then what trauma said hero would go through when he comes face to face with madame Balan’s wondrous wardrobe? Much screeching will ensue, and even if it’s not from the girl, audiences are likely to reel in alarm just as much as the leading man.

Rani Mukerji

The onetime queen of the industry has built up a career playing likeable roles, from the bubbly con-artist to the generic girl-next-door to the helpless housewife. And over the last few years, they really don’t seem to have been clicking — not even when she plays an angel. So an image change is what we suggest. Think of those godawful B-movies with overweight vamps, and cast Rani in a self-deprecating, grotesque variation of the streetwalking moll. Give her inconceivable lines and peculiar, cleavage-heavy costumery, and aid her every word with a paan and a wink. Actually, scratch that. Sanjay Leela Bhansali tried it already.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Casting one of the most beautiful women in the world and making her appear scary is no mean feat, but give a bored screenwriter some free time and he’ll conjure up a context making her absolutely frightful. So here goes: How about a naturalistic film? You know, dim lights, Ajay Devgan, all that jazz. Picture Ash as the lovely girlfriend, with her and the hero completely besotted with each other. The first half seems almost boringly idyllic, until interval point, where the hero pops the question and Ash agrees to marry him. The second half is where the horror lies. Bring on the news channels. Muahahaha.

Mallika Sherawat

The statuesque stunner with the bod to die for is admittedly intimidating for any man right in front of her, but as an audience we’re too busy ogling to even let emotions like fear crowd our fervently wistful brains. Which is why, shot with ambient sound and minimal background score, we can have A Tale Of Three Sisters. The treatment can be like a Korean film, with Mallika surely making us cringe if she glares straight into the camera — there’s always that ‘what were you staring at?’ guilt — but the real fun is with the plot. Actually, forget the plot, just cast Mallika as all three of the sisters. The audience would be in a frenzy trying to swivel from one Mallika to the other, trying to maximise optimum skimpiness viewing angles. And whiplash can assuredly be pretty scary.
