Ever looked at a celebrity on television and wonder why he/she is even being called as the celebrity. Did you think- How did they become celebrity? What have did done to become a celebrity? Or even OMG! Is that person a celebrity? When did this happen? Trust me this is a very common feeling for us these days.
Every now and then a wanna be celebrity is popping up on our television screen and suddenly we feel like taking a bullet to the head. Sadly we can't. Bollywood showbiz is downright crazy, where men and women with real talent fail to make it big and men and women with absolutely zero talent are hobnobbing in stardom.
There are many socialites or self-proclaimed actor that suddenly start making the headline and become celebrities overnight. And we sad people are left wondering who they are. Let's take a look at some of the people from the entertainment world who got a celebrity status for nothing.
Here are the chosen few who have made a grand entry to the celebrity who got famous for nothing category...
Veena Malik somehow knew that a sleazy cover shoot for a magazine and some nasty acts on a reality show will earn her a ticket to Bollywood. Today you can see her on huge billboards.
Fashion faux pas galore at red carpet dos, a dumb interview at the Cannes Film Festival and a hyped TV show, The Bachelorette India to her credit...Mallika is certainly having the time of her life! Don't know about you guys, but we are definitely not excited to know about this certain celebrity.
Bigg Boss 7 participant Gauhar is a model and reality TV star. She rose to fame with the Indian version of the popular show Keeping up with the Kardashians, The Khan Sisters. Replete with sleaze and dirty gossip, Gauhar became a celebrity in no time without any real effort.
Ashmit wanted to taste success in Bollywood just like his sister, Ameesha Patel. But, an MMS scandal ruined his film career forever. Nevertheless, the scandal was enough for him to enter the Bigg Boss house which got him an undue celebrity status.
Star kid Riya Sen has nothing to her credit so far. Not more than two to three odd films she acted in, we remember her more for the scandalous MMS leaked by her ex-boyfriend, Ashmit Patel. What then makes her a celebrity?
Sanjay Kapur found himself a celebrity tag the moment he became a 'damad' (son-in-law) of the Kapoor khaandan. A business tycoon from Delhi, Kapur has been in the news for the ongoing custody battle with Karisma Kapoor.
Star wife, that's it! Manyata has done nothing to prove her worth in the world of showbiz. Her newfound celebrity status is all thanks to her husband and Bollywood superstar, Sanjay Dutt. Agree or not?
A rich and powerful husband can certainly take care of all your needs. Madhoo's claim to fame was Mani Ratnam's film Roja, following which the actress couldn't really compete in the race. Today, she is well known in the Page 3 circuit because all she is good at is posing for the cameras!
A failed model, Dimpy always wished to become a celebrity. The Kolkata girl soon got lucky by marrying Rahul Mahajan. Today, she frequents glossy parties and poses with her good-for-nothing husband. Easy life, we think!
Vindoo Dara Singh:
He sure won the popular reality show Bigg Boss season 3, but Vindoo Dara Singh has really nothing else to hang on to in the world of showbiz. To make matters worse, he was arrested for betting in an IPL match. In our world, that makes him a culprit and not a celebrity!
