Double Acting

\dubb-ahll acting\

Phrase.

Definition

Once you've reached true super star status in the Indian Film Industry you will be given the opportunity to play two or more major roles in the same movie.

This is double acting. Sometimes dubbed double action, or more reasonably double role. Rajinikant, Kamalahaasan, Vishnuvardhan, Kajol, Chiranjeevi, SRK, Dev Anand, Dilip Kumar, Sharmila Tagore, and Zee Beeg Bee, have all had their go at this popular formula.

Attempts might have been made to boost lesser actors to stardom using this mechanism in some kind of reverse mob psychology, but most will fail. Who wants to see two Sallu's take their shirts off...

Usage

Sanjana: Oy, Lalli, you're not with that fellow Govind anymore is it?
Lalitha: No ma, best only, horrid chap was double acting...

00222

The usage of double and triple before a digit is specific to South Asia. While it might be simpler to spell out each digit - Zero, zero, two, two, two - the spirit of jugaad - that which can be done quicker mustn't be fucked with - always triumphs.

So, 00 is Double Zero, 222 is Triple Two, 666 is Triple 6, 9999 is Double Nine Double Nine - and so on.

Usage

Bill: Let me write down your phone number, Sir.
Jayesh: Nine, Eight. (Pause), Three, One. (Pause)
Bill pauses.
Jayesh: Double Four, Double Four, Four, Two.

Bill (muttering): WTF!

Bill (to Jayesh): Lost you completely there. Slowly, please.

Jayesh: Nine, Eight, Three, One, Four, Four, Four, Four, Four, Two.

Bill writes 9831444442

Definition

The ultimate paisa vasool for any filmmaker: the same actor or actress plays two roles within the same film. Most often utilized in plotlines involving twins (long-lost separated-at-birth reunions, comedies of error, confused mother characters) or rebirth (revenge! justice delayed but not denied! wrath of God! 2x Amitabh Bachchan or SRK doing awkward dance moves!)

Usage

Gushing SRK fan to friend: Oye!, let's go see his new release again, yaar, he's done solid acting in that... Plus in this picture he's got a double role, which means twice as many twitching eyebrows to lau!
