Not everyone hits the bull’s eye on the first attempt and as life has it, even our careers are full of failures and successes. Some of the very successful actors have had their share of failures at first and then tasted success and some of these have gone on to become one of the most successful actors of Bollywood till date. Rather some of you might be shocked at hearing some of the movies done by these actors/actresses were actually flops. This also gives us a message that our life is full of failures and successes and we must continue to work hard despite all odds.

Amitabh Bachchan:

He is one of the greatest actor India has seen and unarguable the biggest star of Bollywood but his debut in Saat Hindustani which was a black and white film wasn’t a hit. He had given more than 7 flops before he could deliver his first blockbuster, Zanjeer, from which he came to be called the angry young man of Bollywood. All of us know what command and respect he holds in Bollywood. Since more than 40 years he has been working in Bollywood and Indian cinema has still not found a replacement.


Ranbir Kappor:

The only proper flop film of his career was his debut film Sawariya. Though his towel scene raised many eyebrows and got him some crazy female fan following but when the movie released it all got drained up. But subsequently with hard work and perseverance he has become what he is today. With some great films like Rockstar, Barfi, Rajneeti in his kitty he has become the leader of the new generation. He is the only star today who competes with the Khans, Kumar and Devgan of Bollywood and even beats them.


Katrina Kaif:

No! She did not debut with Maine Pyar Kyun Kia. Her debut film, Boom, was a super disaster. It is considered to be a C grade film by many. She has come over it, improved her dancing and some acting skills and by pairing up with the Khiladi of Bollywood in her early career, gave some real great hits. Despite a disastrous start she has managed to be one of the leading ladies of today’s lot of actresses in Bollywood.


Kareena Kappor:

Refugee, her debut did not impress many people. The sisters, bebo and lolo, were seen in comparison and people found bebo not matching her elder sister. But soon after her first movie she managed to break the ice and get noticed for her work. Her role in Jab We Met has become an iconic role and she has earned a permanent place for herself in Bollywood.


Sonam Kapoor:

Along with Ranbir Kapoor even Sonam Kapoor has debuted in the same movie Sawariya. With this rare disaster of Sanjay Leela Bhansali she too features in our list. She looked promising in her first movie even though it did not turn out to be a hit. She since has made a mark in Bollywood with some good movies like Ranjhana and Bhag Milkha Bhag. She is majorly India’s new style diva and she earns that tag for her flawless dressing sense.


There are few actors who flop at first and then make a mark, and as I believe when they do they rock the industry. We have seen it with Amitabh Bachchan and now we are seeing the same with Ranbir Kapoor. So here then we conclude our list of the actors who in spite of a terrible first outing managed to make a mark. Do share with us how did you like the post?
