Suniel ShettyMain Hoon Na featured Suniel Shetty as Raghavan Singh Dutta in the movie. Our protagonist, Major Ram Sharma (Shah Rukh Khan), fights him to stop his evil plans. Shetty's character was a subtl take on the "evil" Raavan.

Sanjay DuttA take on what would Raavan be like in today's time, Sanjay Dutt's Rudraksh saw him in the titular role. The film had many references to Ramayana with Dutt's character Varun resembling Raavan.

Abhishek BachchanOne of Bachchan's best performances was in Manu Ratman's Raavan. The film talked about the core of the epic Ramayana. Bachchan's character of Beera Mundra in the movie was a great attempt to re-create a modern-day Raavan.

Arjun RampalThe film might have tanked at the box office, but we have to give it to Arjun Rampal for playing one hell of a baddie in this film. His character - Ra. One is the villain of the video game that wreaks havoc in real life, giving the concept an interesting twist.

Varun DhawanAnother romantic take on Ravaan and Sita, Kalank saw Varun Dhawan take up the nuanced role of playing the baddie. Sita aka Alia Bhatt crosses the 'laxman rekha' by falling in love with Dhawan, but things turn sour real soon.
