In Demand: Kamal Hassan

The 57-year-old Irish actor, who plays John Hannibal Smith, has kicked some serious butt in his latest out and out action flick, The A-Team along with co-stars Bradley Cooper, Quinton Rampage Jackson and Sharlto Copley. The film shows Liam Neeson still has what it takes to be an action star. This has surely led us to question whether our desi stars too can pull off the same. When it comes to Bollywood unlike the West, our Indian actors earlier seemed to attract more of character roles as they grew older but things have started to change since the comeback of Amitabh Bachchan, who seems to be one of the busiest actors in Bollywood today.

Down South, superstars like Rajnikant and Kamal Hassan too have certainly raised the shelf life of action heroes in India as they can still fight the villains with the same skill as any other newbie, proving age won’t keep them down. 

With the experienced actors in Hollywood still yearning to hold on to their positions as leading men, they surely don’t mind giving stiff competition to their much-younger rivals. And Bollywood is not too far behind in this case. Well, these guys sure seem to have it all.
