Bollywood Actors Who Could Not Continue The Limelight

The actors who could not continue their journey in the world of glitz and sparkle called Bollywood

Failure, competition, and the pressure of staying relevant perennially loom on actors in Bollywood. Some can cope with it and some cannot. Those who cannot, often quit and opt for a different path in other fields.

IANS has jotted out a few names of Bollywood actors, who courted the limelight for a while but could not continue their journey in the world of glitz and sparkle called Bollywood.

IMRAN KHAN

Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan’s nephew Imran Khan has quit Bollywood as an actor. He broke the news earlier this month. Imran made his debut in the Hindi film industry in 2008 with the hit film “Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na”. However, most of what followed were forgettable fare as “Luck”, “Kidnap”, “I Hate Luv Story” and “Break Ke Baad”. There was “Delhi Belly” in 2011, but that was an odd success, clearly not enough. Imran’s last big-screen outing was in 2015 with Kangana Ranaut in “Katti Batti”.

SANA KHAN

In October, actress Sana Khan announced that she was quitting the world of showbiz in order to serve humanity and follow the path of her Creator. The 32-year-old is best known for her stint on “Bigg Boss 6” and was also a contestant on “Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 6”. She was also seen in the 2014 Salman Khan-starrer “Jai Ho” and the web series “Special OPS” that dropped earlier this year. Sana has worked in a handful of Tamil and Telugu films, too. Sana has now tied the knot with a Gujarat-based Mufti and has changed her name to Sayeida Sana Khan.

ZAIRA WASIM

Zaira quit Bollywood in 2019. The Kashmiri girl who became famous overnight after her superb debut in Aamir Khan’s 2016 blockbuster “Dangal”, decided to say goodbye to her film career because, in her words, her “relationship with my religion (was) threatened”. In an explosive long post on her Facebook page, the 18-year-old cited religious reasons for her decision to quit her promising career in Bollywood. Her last big-screen outing was last year with Shonali Bose’s “The Sky Is Pink”.

TANUSHREE DUTTA

She recently made news after she opened the floodgates for the #Metoo movement in India. Tanushree was away from the spotlight for almost eight years before she came back from abroad and talked about her harassment incident involving actor Nana Patekar on the sets of “Horn ‘Ok’ Pleassss”. Tanushree was last seen on the big screen in the 2010 film “Apartment”.

KUMAR GAURAV

He made his debut in the 1981 superhit “Love Story”, and instantly became a teenybopper heartthrob of his generation. However, becoming typecast as a loverboy, his luck ran out soon enough. Over the years, he tried to change his image several times with films such as “Goonj”, “Kaante”, “Naam” and “Janam”. While these roles were appreciated, they could not revive his career. His last release was in the year 2006, titled “My Daddy Strongest”.

MAYURI KANGO

Mayuri Kango made her debut in Saeed Mirza’s 1995 art film, “Naseem”, and entered mainstream Bollywood a year later with the Mahesh Bhatt film “Papa Kehte Hain”. Despite hit music and immense pre-release hype, “Papa Kehte Hain” failed to live up to expectations at the box office. Her songs in the film, notably “Ghar se nikalti hi” sung by Udit Narayan, continue to be popular. She has worked in films such as “Betaabi”, “Hogi Pyaar Ki Jeet”, “Papa The Great” and “Badal”. Mayuri quit her acting career in 2003. She is currently in Google, working as the Head Of Industry going by her Linkedin profile. (IANS)
