Here are few flicks where dogs and other animals have floored us with their superb acts and were truly the stars.

Bajarangi in Aankhen- David Dhawan-Govinda's jodi is considered evergreen. Adding more to the spark in their flick ‘Aakhein' was Bajarangi a monkey playing Govind and Chunky Pandey's companion in the movie.

Yamla Pagla Deewana 2: If Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby-trio weren't enough for the viewers to watch this flick, the makers gave them a highly classified orangutan, a monkey species to soar up the laughter doze. The ape played an equivalent role in the flick. From drinking alcohol, to painting and romancing, orangutan was more or less a show-stealer.
