His role in this movie still gives nightmares. Ashutosh Rana plays the role of a transgender and nails it. Since his outstanding performance, he has been labeled as the scariest villain of Bollywood.

His role as a cold-blooded, sadistic killer and rapist is worth a standing ovation.

Raaz is still one of the scariest Hindi movies. Ashutosh Rana plays the role of a professor who is the first one to know about the ghostly affair. His acting makes us believe in the ghost ourselves.

4. Simmba

Although the story revolves around Ranveer Singh as a corrupt police officer, it is Ashutosh Rana's role as a diligent and dedicated police officer that helps Simmba mend his ways.
