The history of Bollywood is replete with actors who sunk with their first movies never to rise again. Have a look at these seven celebrities who exploded into fame and stardom with their successful debut movies.
A sixteen-year-old teen falling in love is nothing new. With big beautiful eyes, an angelic face and a simple polka-dotted dress, Dimple swept the nation off its feet with her first movie Bobby in 1973. She then quit the industry to wed the first superstar of India – Rajesh Khanna.
The actress would return in nine years time to stamp her authority on the screen yet again.
The action king of Bollywood started with a bang with the romantic thriller Betaab in the year 1983. With great music and a catchy story, Sunny delivered the biggest hit of the year with fellow debutant Amrita Singh.
Some of Bollywood’s biggest hits have been delivered by Sunny including Gadar:Ek Prem Katha and Border.
Bhagyashree and her co-star Salman Khan delivered the romantic hit Maine Pyar Kiya that brought romance into an India that was opening up to the world. With Bollywood clamouring for her, she quit to marry boyfriend Himalay.
Such was her popularity that her husband was offered a lead role for three movies starring with her as she refused to entertain any other actor in a lead role. All three bombed and she quit the industry to have a family.
