Remember Sherlyn Chopra or Kunal Khemu or at least Rana Daggubati? Well, you actually need not remember them anymore. These good looking actors have joined the long list of Bollywood industry's one film wonders. There are many such celebrities who entered the industry with a bang and disappeared from the industry even faster.
Actors like Kunal Khemu, Genelia D'Souza, Gracy Singh and Asin debuted with super hit movies but failed to follow through by choosing some not so good projects. Even though these actors were talented but not much could have be done when it comes to their poor choice of films or lack of judgement in choosing their roles. Eventually all these Bollywood actors ended up being tagged as one hit film wonders.
Then there are actors like Sherlyn Chopra and Negar Khan who have no talent and have been trying to survive in the industry solely on their sex appeal. Poor ladies, in spite of being so hot looking there is not a soul present in this world who watch your movie.
While their 15 minutes of fame ended with the last scene of their last movie, their names surely made it to the gracious list of super flop celebrities. Lets take a bow and remember these Bollywood celebrities who gave one hit or acted in one film and bagged the title of super flop stars. Here is a list of 25 such stars who made it successfully to Bollywood's one hit-super flop category.
She made her debut opposite Salman Khan in Veer. While Sneha got famous for being a lookalike to Ash, Zarine got famous for being a Katrina lookalike. Apart from a few item numbers here and there, this actress is yet to be a full-fledged heroine.
She grabbed headlines with her debut film Lucky for her resemblance to Ash. While many expected her to have flourishing career in the industry, the actress dint make any impact. She then announced her small break from Hindi films to focus on her Telugu career but looks like the so-called small break ended up being a permanent one.
Sarah Jane Dias
She debuted with Kya Super Kool Hain Hum. With a few films here and there the actress is managing to be in Bollywood but for how long? On being asked about her one-hit status in an interview, the actress said, "I don't care about tags like one-hit-wonder. I am here to do my job."
Another one of Salman Khan's discoveries was Bhumika Chawla, his co-star in Tere Naam. After this movie, Bhumika went back to Telugu films. Now the actress is happily married to Yoga guru Bharat Thakur.
Kajol's kid sister has made many attempts but hasn't got the success till now. Tanisha was last seen in Big Boss Season 7, where she got famous for romancing Arman Kohli.
Gracy Singh who made it big with Aamir Khan's Lagaan couldn't do much in Bollywood. She was also seen in Munnabhai MBBS opposite Sanjay Dutt and in Gangajal opposite Ajay Devgan but after that we haven't spotted the actress in any movie. Even though the actress was widely appreciated for her acting talent, Gracy could not survive in Bollywood for long.
Gayatri Joshi who was seen in the film Swades opposite Shah Rukh Khan, after such a dream debut one would expect her to bombarded with film offers but strangely the actress disappeared just after the film. She is occasionally seen in social events and page 3 parties.
Arya, Raj Babbar's son debuted with the movie Ab Ke Baras, after which the actor took a long break. He was again seen in a small role in Guru but after this the actor seems to have taken a long break from the Bollywood industry.
Jugal Hansraj will always be remembered as the adorable blue-eyed boy in Masoom even though he did a few films as a full-fledged actors. He was noticed as one of the three supporting actors in Mohabbatein. Directors tried to launch him and re-launch him a couple of times again after he grew up, but he could never match up to his own standards again. Finally he has given up acting to get into direction.
The daughter of advertising guru Alyque Padamsee made a lackluster debut in Madhur Bhandarkar's Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji. After this she did a few films but none worked out, now she is only seen in Television ads or print ads. Poor Shazahn, a pretty girl like her should have marketed her skills well!
This Norwegian-Iranian "actress" has featured in about seven movies, but all we remember of her are a couple of infamous wardrobe malfunctions and some sort of legal trouble she managed to get herself in. Calling her a 'one-hit wonder' would be wrong, only because she has never delivered a hit!
2001's Style may have been a semi-hit, and her performance in Jhankaar Beats, another moderate hit in 2003, was tolerable. Since then we only spot her in item numbers or page 3 parties, which she is very famous for!
She was a Ram Gopal Verma's discovery and everyone expected her to be the next Urmila but sadly even after her brilliant performance in Main Madhuri Dixit Banna Chahti Hoon, the movie did not fare well at the box office. Antara Mali's striking resemblance to Madhuri Dixit (dancing included), created a stir. She was widely appreciated and is still recognized majorly for just this one film.
Though he has been a part of super hits like Mohabbatein and Hum Tum, his performance was appreciated only in the Dhoom series. Once the first film of the series fared well, Uday took a pledge to not give any other hit other than the Dhoom series. Sadly we find his presence even in the Dhoom franchise quite intolerable.
Once he had taken the music industry by storm, he decided to give acting a try. While many criticized his performance in Aap Ka Suroor, it went on to become one of the biggest hit amongst the masses that year. He appeared in several other films after that but never really succeeded as an actor. But Himesh is not ready to take no for an answer, he is repeatedly trying to relaunch himself as the hero but the audiences are just refusing to watch his movie.
She received critical acclaim and praises for her performance in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. The look and character worked wonders for her. We thought she'd soon be signing the best films but she too, disappointed. She tried reliving her success with some similar roles but couldn't recreate the magic. She later opted to marry Ritesh Deshmukh and settle down once in for all, but her small supporting role in Jai Ho has been widely appreciated.
He received a lot appreciation for a promising start with Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar, his debut film. Little did we know that for years to come, it would be his only noteworthy performance. Of course his recent marriage to his long time girlfriend has also managed to bring him into the limelight. Well, now the actor is settled with his role in the Television's serial industry.
Even with looks strikingly similar to Hrithik Roshan, an amazing dancing talent and with rich family background the actor failed to create any ripples in the film industry. His only achievement till date would be his ex-girlfriend Priyanka Chopra and his present girlfriend Bipasha Basu. Even his last movie Dishkiyaon failed miserably at the Box Office.
He received wide spread recognition for his role in Kalyug. For a newcomer, he was brilliant and had even become the nation's heartthrob. We wonder why he never managed to surpass the hype and success of his first film. His performance in Go Goa Gone was also widely appreciated but that didn't get the actor any film offers.
This cute girl became every guy's ‘crush' when she appeared on the silver screen for the first time in Jannat. She rose to fame with the song ‘Zara Si Dil Mein' from the same film but failed to leave a mark in any of her following projects in Bollywood. Now the actress is trying her luck in the south film industry like all the other failed Bollywood actresses.
His first Bollywood film Dum Maaro Dum won him many accolades, both for his sex appeal as well as his performance in the film. But sadly, he too joined the league of other one-hit-wonders. But the actor has a flourishing career in the Telugu film industry where he is originally from.
When Rajeev, one of the hottest men on television, debuted on the silver screen. He managed to impress one and all with his performance in Aamir, after which his career graph only went down. It seems best if the actor gave up the dream of being a hero in Bollywood and just went back to television.
He played a youngster in the much-famous Dil Dosti Etc that became a cult film for the youth in India. Imaad Shah was a refreshing surprise in the film but failed to bag any kind valuable work later.
Udaan, one of most path-breaking films in Bollywood, saw the rise of a new star in Rajat Barmecha. He won most awards that he was nominated for. He kept the audiences waiting for more but hasn't appeared in any film yet.
When she debuted in Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai, she seemed to be the sorts who got better with every film and eventually enter the league of good actresses. But that film was sadly the best she could ever do.
