Bollywood has given us some of the most awesome surprised expressions over the ages. In no particular order, here are our favourites.
Watch out for the oh-no-must-cover-eyes-this-instant aka grandaddy of the double facepalm for future generations.
Because apparently if the future generation is not allowed the facepalm they might try to claw their faces…
Jab We Met, 2007
Or pretend to be a startled T-rex? (Note to self: Recheck with office T-rex.)
Andaz Apna Apna, 1994
You mean my gorgeously made-up eyes have been featured only once on this list so far?
Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, 2001
Because if this surprised (or shocked- thin line really), we’ll do the most awkward laugh cover-up in history. It masks the pain, ok?
We’re going to have to chalk this down to consensual because surprise surprise (notice background aunties) song and dance follows.
Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!, 1994
Because Kantaben. Can’t. Even.
Kal Ho Naa Ho, 2003
And if life’s mixing it up and everything comes as a surprise, we’ll roll with the dice.
