In an industry like Bollywood, one picture can build or break a life history. The instances are plenty to demonstrate how one successful box office hit can work an actor into an overnight lead. From Ranveer Singh to Shraddha Kapoor we know many such creative people.
But then again, this goes both ways. One bad film and these actors are back to where they started from. Here is a list of actors who did the wrong movie at the wrong time (and we are sure they regret the choices as much as we do).
1. Shah Rukh Khan
While Shah Rukh Khan is known to make smart choices with his films, one film that would have left best of his fans baffled would is Dilwale. Kajol and SRK reuniting might have been good on paper, but it wasn’t worth the watch!
2. Sharman Joshi
Off late, the movies Sharman Joshi has been a part of haven’t been able to impress the audiences. For example, his role in 1920 London was totally dull and made us question his choices.
3. Saif Ali Khan
Saif has given us many beautiful movies that we still love, but an actor of his caliber doing such a flimsy role came as a shock to us all. In an interview, he said that “The film didn’t have a script as such, it was all there in Sajid’s mind. I did whatever he asked me to, the humor was not the kind I enjoy.”
4. Akshay Kumar
We have no idea what was going on in Akshay’s mind when he signs on the dotted line of movie contracts. He does movies like Special 26 and Baby that just makes us love him and then we see him in movies like It’s Entertainment and Boss. Why Akshay, why?
5. Kangana Ranaut
Her career turned upside down after Queen. Before that, some of the films she did, including Rascals and No Problem are just very shocking and hard to imagine.
6. Shahid Kapoor
Shaandaar’s promotions and posters looked very promising and it was one of the most anticipated movies of 2015. But alas! The movie didn’t do all that well at the box office and Shahid has started to blame the film’s storyline for it. Looks like the Shaandaar actor isn’t very proud of the flick that they had been endorsing for months.
After a long pause in Bollywood, Govinda decided to resume his career with Kill/Dil but in vain. After the movie crashed at the box office, Govinda admitted in an interview that he took the role he was being offered because he didn’t want to be left behind.
