It's the 4DK Animalympics! Round 16

Raja from Khoon Bhari Maang

Skill Set: Bullet proof

When you're trying to exact revenge against the men who fed your face to a crocodile, it sometimes takes more than being a world famous disco supermodel. Sometimes you need a little help from the animal kingdom. That's why it's a good thing, in the case of Khoon Bhari Maang, that Rekha has at her side both her trusty dog Jumbo -- who we covered in Round 15 -- and this week's featured anipal, Raja. Now, as Mard has demonstrated, it can be tricky for an equine actor to costar with a dog. Unlike Badal, however, Raja proves that he can hold his own, and doesn't have to resort to any demeaning, monument-based miscegenation in order to do it. This is because Raja not only proves his mettle as an attack horse to be reckoned with, but also demonstrates that even a bullet fired at close range directly into his chest cannot slow him down (horses have chests, right?). That this incident merited no further mention once it had taken place, added to the fact that we see Raja looking tip-top at the film's conclusion, suggests that this type of thing happens all the time, and that Raja is in fact some kind of indestructible super-horse. Take that, evil!

Disco supermodel?

Say did you ever read Plasticman in its Adventure comics run?

3 superheroes in 1 comic! Learn brain surgery in 30 days! A disco dancing chimp that refuses to come down when asked to because it is self-actualized!

Sorry, I'm a Plasticman purist. I'm only into that pure Jack Cole shit.
