The turban-wearing heroes seem to be getting back in action. There was one such time when nearly every actor opted for wearing a turban on-screen and playing the loving and wild Sardaar. Soon, over- the- top machismo and fighting with 10 men-at-a-time took over.
But with Irrfan Khan's turban look in 'Qissa' and reports of Tiger Shroff playing the turban-wearing superhero in his upcoming flick opposite Jacqueline Fernandez, looks like the fashion is back in town!
So, let us look at the Turbanators of B-town who made the turban-look cool and awesome.
1. Sunny Deol:
When it comes to playing the angry and brooding Sardaar, no one doe sit better than Sunny paaji. He has played a Sardaar in so many movies that we have almost lost the count. Be it 'Border' or 'Yamla Pagla Deewana', here is one of the most handsome Sardaars of Bollywood.
2. Akshay Kumar:
He is the man to be credited for making the turban-look a trend. He rocked it with his funny histronics as the lovable Sardaar in 'Singh is King'. And because we just could not get over this fit sardaar, Akki would be back at playing a Sikh in his upcoming 'Singh is Bling'.
3. Saif Ali Khan:
'Love Aaj Kal' had two Saifs. While one was the Saif we are used to watching in every movie, the second one was the romantic sardaar who would cross any boundaries to get the love of his life. Certainly the most adorable sardaar in recent times.
4. Salman Khan:
Salman too tried his hand at playing the strong and good-hearted Sardaar in 'Heroes' and the guy can rock in any look!
5. Ranbir Kapoor:
Enough of your jokes on Sardaars. Ranbir played the street-smart Sardaar who could lead to a big company's downfall with his intelligent business skills.
6. Ajay Devgn:
Ajay Devgn was at his funny best playing the grumpy Sardaar in 'Son Of Sardaar'. But we loved him as the freedom fighter Bhagat Singh.
7. Farhan Akhtar:
And here is one hot Sardaar whom every girl would love to fall for. Farhan paid a tribute to one of the most respected sports personality of the country- athlete Milkha Singh.
8. Rani Mukerji:
Oh yes! She played a Sikh in 'Dil Bole Hadippa'. It was not just about wearing the turban but also, acting manly and dealing with the fake beard. And she did it with grace!
9. (Special Mentions) Shah Rukh Khan:
Not for a movie, but King Khan too played a Sardaar in one of an advertisement for a popular toothpaste brand. And given his typical Delhi accent, he did much justice to his role in just those few seconds.
