Vishnuvardhan & Amitabh Bachchan

Both started their careers playing non-central character in a non-commerical movie. Amitabh won the National Award for best supporting actor in his debut film "Saat Hindustani" and Vishnu made his entry into movies with the National Award winning movie "Vamshavruksha".

Both rose into prominence with angry young man roles - Vishnu in the iconic "Nagara Haavu" and Amitabh in the career defining "Zanjeer".

Both soon diversified into starring in comedy, action, masala and multi-starrer movies in seventies and eighties.

Both are lefties (LoDDes) Not only that they display their left-handedness prominently in most of the characters they portray - be it bashing up villains, holding the gun or writing.
