Over the years, double roles have become the most tried and tested method for entertaining the audiences. The concept of double role is quite an old one. Actors like Dev Anand, Dilip Kumar, Hema Malini and Sridevi have played double roles and have nailed it to the T.
Now, Ishaqzaade actor Arjun Kapoor is all set to enthrall the audience with his double avatar in Mubarakan. Arjun will be seen essaying the role of Karanveer Singh and Charanveer Singh. So let’s rewind and take a look at some of the classic double roles in Bollywood:
Seeta Aur Geeta (1972)
Hema Malini And Dharmendra In Seeta Geeta
