Bollywood runs on luck! While for some it shines brilliant and quick, for the rest it is nothing but a constant struggle to be acknowledged and recognized. This cinematic world has itself witnessed some real talents being washed away under the influence of their hard luck and also some terrible skills gaining unexpected limelight.
Here is a list of Bollywood’s most ill-fated stars.
Yes! Amrita Arora is critically acclaimed for movies like Welcome to Sajjanpur and Main Hoon Na. But, this quintessential Bollywood’s ‘girl next door’ could not ring a lot of bells for a long time in movies and eventually faced severe disappointment in Bollywood.
Dia Mirza entered the glamor world almost at the same time as Priyanka Chopra. But she could not maintain a very consistent position in Bollywood. As beautiful and ravishing as she is, her dazzling looks were not enough to make her stars shine brightly in B-world.
We almost cannot calculate how much Ameesha Patel won our hearts after her innocent characterization in movies like Kaho Na.. Pyaar Hai and Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. In spite of being one of the sexiest women in India, she could not make a long way in Bollywood.
On a trip to Delhi, Kim gave audition for Close-Up toothpaste advertisement and was selected. She then appeared in some commercials for Sunsilk, Pepsi, Tata Safari, Ponds, Fair & Lovely and Liril. Aditya Chopra then signed her for his directorial venture titled Mohabbatein. All liked her due to her sexy figure. Last she was seen in the movie Magadheera that too in a special appearance in the year 2009.
Dhupia made her acting debut through play in New Delhi called Graffiti. After that, she made her film debut in 2003 by Qayamat: City Under Threat, which had an average performance at the box office. Later, she rose to fame with her role Julie and then appeared in Sheesha (2005) in a dual role of twin sisters. Sheesha also did not do well at the box office. After that, Dhupia appeared in supporting roles in multiple critically and commercially acclaimed films including Chup Chup Ke and Singh Is King. In 2011, she played Eva Braun in the movie Dear Friend Hitler about Mahatma Gandhi. Now she is doing a show called Roadies on MTV.
