Supporting actors hardly get to go on promotional sprees or be in the limelight. However, they are those names that make it to the hearts of people and leave an ever-lasting impact with their acting. Here are 5 of our favourite picks from the Bollywood that have taken supporting characters to a new height:
1- PRIYANKA CHOPRA

She is a perfect blend of beauty with some really blessed acting chops. Priyanka Chopra has made everyone go ga-ga over her performances as a leading lady in the film industry's most acclaimed projects. However, it was her pitiful Kashi act in Bajirao Mastani
that has made us fall for her all over again. Those confused eyes, that poised demeanor, the confidence of a wife and her heart-breaking tears, Priyanka was like a painting in every frame of this Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial.
2- JIM SARBH
He was just giving his first performance and the man made us hate him like anything! We cursed him for killing our beloved Neerja
because he performed the role of the heartless terrorist with absolute conviction. Then he followed it with his portrayal of Malik Kafur in Padmaavat
and we could not help but applaud this talented man. Do look out for him in Sanju
as well, where he plays God and makes us cringe with his true-to-life impersonation of Zubin Mistry, the drug peddler.
3- RISHI KAPOOR

Well, he is a delight to watch in the Kapoor Dadaji act in Kapoor and Sons.
The man has cheeky humour that leaves us in twists and especially his Mandakini-fetish. Oh! Rishi Kapoor is still younger than many Bollywood youngsters, even (hush-hush) his son Ranbir Kapoor. And we look forward to his Mulk act now.
4- SONAM KAPOOR

It's true that Akshay Kumar portrayed the role of the social activist Arunachalam Murugnantham. However, it was Sonam Kapoor's Pari Walia that was our absolute favorite. Need we say, behind every successful man there's a woman. In the film it was the inspiration and motivation Laxmikant derives from Pari to earn the accolades for his innovation. Kapoor was endearing and bold in her performance and an absolute show-stealer.
5- SWARA BHASKAR

She may have invited controversies with her take-no-prisoners attitude in Veere Di Wedding
but she deserves a resounding applause for performing Sakshi Soni, a spoilt brat and divorcee in the film.Swara may have shown a bit much in VDW
that has irked our 'society' but she has definitely over-shadowed some of the brightest performances in the film. In fact, we knew that she can hold herself strong right from Raanjhana
. She is a headstrong and bold lady in real life and has no qualms facing any issues around her choice of characters.
6- VICKY KAUSHAL
Right from Masaan, we knew that this man is here to stay. He starred in a blink and miss role opposite Alia Bhatt in Raazi
but within that glimpse he stole the show. However, it is his role in Sanju
that is our most favourite till date. Kaushal plays Sanju's bestie Kamlesh 'Kamli' Kanhaiyalal Kapasi and leaves us in splits in one frame and in tears in the next. This man is a bundle of talent and B-Town has sure found a gem in this actor.
