Everybody has their own set of experience in Bollywood and not everyone attains success from their very first movie. The debut movies are important in bollywood because they set the tone for the career ahead of bollywood newbies. Following are the examples where the now successful bollywood stars had super flop debut movies:
Aditi Rao Hydari
She was not even acknowledged for her role in the movie, Dilli 6, but she worked hard and got recognized for her role in Yeh Saali Zindagi and also went on to win the Best Supporting Actress Screen award.
Her debut movie, Luv Ka The End might have sounded like the end of a budding career. But, in 2013 with Aashiqui 2, she broke records as far as bouncing back is concerned. She has been relentlessly performing well since then.
Abhay is an unconventional actor and does unconventional movies. So, his debut with the movie, ‘Socha Na Tha’ didn’t do well at the box office. But, later, his conventional choice of movies did become his USP, especially with movies like Dev D and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.
Her debut movie was “Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat”, and if you don’t remember this movie, its because it was a massive failure. But the tables turned around for her with Ghulam and then of course, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.
Aditya Roy Kapoor
Though he started his career with big stars and big movies like Guzaarish and Action Replayy, but they both failed despite their talented starcast. But again, Aashiqui 2 happened.
The Khiladi’s debut movie was not “Khiladi”. It was Sugandh and Dancer in 1991. They failed, but he didn’t. From action to comedy to romance to patron, he can be everything.
