Additionally, the new century represented individuals who were more complicated than those who had preceded them. And there is no doubt that we were having a wonderful time with our innermost superfans.

When you were a teenager, how much Bollywood film love from the 2000s kept you awake at night? Let us check them out. 

Shahrukh Khan

Throughout the 2000s, everything King Khan acquired was transformed into gold. And Kal Ho Naa Ho was one of the films. Aman embodied what Bollywood refers to as a 'bindaas' or happy-go-lucky character; he was possibly the most cheerful figure on screen, smiling and assisting everyone in finding love, despite a startlingly tragic backstory destined to make fans tear. Perhaps it was the linen kurtis and the khaki pants he wore or his dimpled smile that stole our hearts. And Aman was successful in driving us all mad!

Aamir Khan

The 2000's film Dil Chahta Hai established a sense of relaxed and casual cool to mainstream Bollywood. Aamir Khan's Akash has been the personification of what we're referring to here. Akash was known for his casual clothes, which represented his general laid-back nature. He was likewise perplexed by his existence and yet retained the innocence of a child. The narrative was one that a large number of people, including us, could relate to.

Hrithik Roshan

Those who always believed he deserved so much more were entirely justified! Hrithik showed to be a natural in his debut film, Kaho Na… Pyar Hai! and the country gained an unexpected sweetheart. To be honest, Rohit's kind, loving, and overwhelming devotion to his new girlfriend stood in stark contrast to the more rough-and-tumble characters prevalent in 1990s Bollywood blockbusters!

Vivek Oberoi

We can't believe Vivek Oberoi was that charming at the time. Saathiya (2002) was written specifically for all the romantics and dreamers out there! The image of a dreamy-eyed Aditya riding his motorcycle while wearing headphones makes our hearts skip a beat. And the fantastic soundtrack by A.R Rahman only served further to cement its place on our list of teenage obsessions.

Imran Khan

Imran Khan embodied nearly everything: he was compassionate and devoted, not to mention endearingly adorable in Jaane Tu…Ya, Jaane Naa. Is there anyone who dislikes Aditi for not comprehending how much she had missed until she lost everything?

Neil Nitin Mukesh, the son of famed Bollywood vocalist Nitin Mukesh, has appeared in box office smashes such as New York, Johnny Gaddar, and Nadaan Parindey. He gave some of the most promising performances of the 2000s. Yet, he was never cast in any significant parts following that. Given his limited filmography, viewers continue to have faith in his superb acting ability and semblance of a soft side.

Another enticing performance is nevertheless well worth a look. Despite his drool-worthy performance in MP3, audiences haven't forgotten about him. Namaste Wahala, his most recent Netflix film, is a breakout performance for Nigerian actress Ini Dima-Okojie.

Have you any clue what happened to Zayed Khan in the first place? A string of disasters followed, including Mission Istanbul, Love Breakups Zindagi, and many others, although audiences formed an affinity for the guy through films like Main Hoon Na and Dus.

Rajat hasn't acted in several films since he stunned audiences with his performance in the 2012 coming-of-age film Udaan. However, we are convinced that he still deserves greater fame, more substantial parts, and much more attention.
