100 years of Bollywood: 10 actors who shouldn't have been actors!
Acting might not be everyone's cup of tea. We look at some 'actors' who, we think, chose the wrong profession
Actress Bhagyashree shot to fame overnight with her film Maine Pyaar Kiya. However, she put a condition of working only with her husband in future films. The result was that both their careers tanked.
Puru Raj Kumar
Son of legendary actor Puru Rajkumar made his debut with Bal Brahamachari which failed miserably at the box office. Although after that he did make his comeback in a negative role, his career never took off.
Kishan Kumar, brother of Gulshan Kumar made his acting debut only because of his brother pumping in money for him. Good sense prevailed and Kishan thankfully decided to stay behind the camera.
Himesh Reshammiya was reigning as a music composer but then the acting bug bit him and he made a debut with Aap Ka Surrorr. Thankfully, he has now content with doing itsy bitsy roles like the one in his last production, Khiladi 786.
Upen Patel has the strangest accent and is not an actor worth writing home about. But perhaps his 'cool' factor worked against him and one still wonders who advised the boy about joining Bollywood.
Dev Anand’s son Suniel Anand had everything going for him. An iconic actor’s son, a big production house and a big launch but he did not have it in him to be the star that his father was. So predictably his acting career fizzled into nothing?
Rajkumar Kohli spent crores on launching his son but Armaan who was definitely not cut out to be a hero. He was launched and relaunched but nothing worked. Last we heard he is planning a film.
Shilpa Shetty’s younger sister had a successful debut in the form of Mohabbatein but that's about it. She is now handling Shilpa’s production work, which appears to be the best career option for her.
Uday Chopra made his debut in 2000 with Mohabbatein and the film worked but not Uday. Even though Uday was part of the Dhoom series, being a production person seems like the best career fit for him.
Ram Gopal Varma’s muse never made it. Although doting Ramu did his best to make her a star with multiple films, she failed in every department with RGV’s Aag being the final nail in her acting career's coffin.
