The classic twin storyline seems to have reappeared on the Bollywood horizon.

In Anees Bazmi’s fun-fest Mubarakan, we will get two Arjun Kapoors for the price of one. With or without the turban.  If that does not do it for you, then perhaps Siddharth Malhotra’s dual identity in Raj Nidimoru & Krishna DK’s A Gentleman may work. Technically, not a double role, but two different personalities coming this August.

Come September, and David Dhawan’s much awaited Judwaa sequel with son Varun Dhawan. Varun will be reprising Salman’s iconic double role in 1997, and he is understandably excited. And the reason for his excitement is that he will be sharing screen space with Salman, who also will be in a double role.

Writer-director Anees Bazmi of Mubarakan feels there is tremendous scope to innovate within the double-role format. “You can play around with the resemblance between the two characters, put them in unusual situations. In fact, I have another script, No Entry Mein Entry, where all three heroes have dual roles.”

It looks like Ram and Shyam just did a double-flip.
