Don’t underestimate the power of the common man,” said superstar Shah Rukh Khan in “Chennai Express”. Bollywood seems to have taken the line seriously. The “aam aadmi” is indeed the hero of the Hindi silver screen, with the larger-than-life hero slowly fading out.
It is an important change in trend, and it has been happening over the recent past. The Bollywood hero is now in the mood to be human.

He has carved a niche for himself in just eight years in Hindi filmdom and has never shied away from saying that he enjoys being an “unconventional hero” in Bollywood.
