A good debut is a prerequisite in Bollywood to survive. While all debutants strive for a hit movie to tee off, not all are that lucky. A few of the actors who began their career with a flop include the following:
The bubbly actress who’s the recipient of seven Filmfare awards had a disappointing start to her career.
Her debut movie sank without a trace and even though her performance was termed satisfactory, Rani quit the industry and went back to college.
The son of actors Shatrughan Sinha and Poonam Sinha played the lead role in the 2010 period drama ‘Sadiyaan’.
This film was supposed to launch Luv into stardom but came a cropper in the box-office and it has been a struggle for the young actor ever since.
Saawariya, with co-debutant Sonam Kapoor, may have bombed at the box-office but Ranbir, grandson of Bollywood’s greatest showman, toughed it out.
Today he’s the heartthrob of Bollywood with a string of hits to his name.
