Even as double roles get increasingly popular in Bollywood, the first instance dates back by 91 years, way back in 1917. Dadasaheb Phalke's movie Lanka Dahan saw Anna Salunke playing the first double role. In the age of talkies, it was Shahu Modak who followed his footsteps by enacting the role of a prince and a pauper in Master Vithal's Awara Shahzada in 1933.
