We know how obsesses we are with our Bollywood celebrities and tend to worship looks over talent. Like for example if our current heartthrob of the nation, Salman Khan looked like Rajpal Yadav or Ranvir Shorey, would you still be drooling over him? Would still watch his movie at any cost? Absolutely not! Even though they are better actors than Salman can ever be, they can replace his star value unless they are suddenly bestowed with beauty by God.
In fact, we've gone so far with this kind of celebrity veneration that talent has taken a back seat, in Bollywood that is. Yes, we've got a ton of those good-looking celebrities who we rate top notch, and it's got nothing to do with their acting skills. For example Alia Bhatt, if you take a close look at her acting chops, you'll notice that she pretty much does the same kind of acting in all her movies. She is just lucky enough to be drowned in good film projects. Parineeti Chopra is a far better actress than Alia can ever be. Parineeti is one of the lucky few who has talent and beauty other wise the industry is filled with people like Alia.
Here's a look at Bollywood's most overrated and over-hyped actors...
Saif Ali Khan:
The apparent royalty of Bollywood, Saif Ali Khan is one of the most sought after actors in the tinsel town. After delivering one flop after the other, the actor has made a name for himself in the recent past. But more than his acting skills it was the news of his divorce and then affair and marriage to Kareena Kapoor that was making the rounds.
If looks could kill, half of our industry would have been dead with this actress' stunning looks. But come to think of it, other than jaw-dropping beauty, Katrina can't speak Hindi properly and is hardly a great actress. Yet she seems to be the name on everyone's lips these days and was even the most searched actress on Google!
Good looks and a body to die for is what this actor is known for. His acting skills, however, have been a disappointment time after time. But Johnnie boy seems to be able to hog the limelight one way or another. From his passion for bikes to his love life, everything makes news. Seems like he doesn't need to work on his acting skills after all.
Seen in numerous movies and that too opposite all the biggies, Deepika Padukone has proved that she is here to stay. With her cute dimples and to-die-for body she does command some attention, but when it comes to her movies, that's all we see. More than acting, it is her eye candy image that helps make her movies blockbusters.
She is undoubtedly beautiful, and has made India proud; but when it comes to movies, Ash has hardly given us many hits. In fact, we can't say she blessed with extraordinary acting skills either. We think there are many other more talented actresses who don't make headlines for wearing Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla or having a baby, don't you think?
The whole industry knows that he can't act. All that there is on offer is a great body and a face thousands of women love. The actor with his chiselled body was voted as the sexiest man alive and he so deserves the tag; but we wonder how he gets so many movies when he is sorely lacking in the talent department!
he 20-year-old has been in the news for her alleged relationships with Varun Dhawan and Arjun Kapoor, as well as her apparent cat fights with actresses way older than her. We wonder why she is the talk of tinsel town.
His claim to fame is that he is the son Mr Amitabh Bachchan and now the husband of Aishwarya Rai. Other than Dostana and Guru none of his other movies have made a mark; yet somehow no one's going to forget Junior Bachchan in a hurry, are they?
After being in the industry for around seven years, the actress has finally given us a hit - Raanjhaana. Still she has been a part of every fashion week, magazine cover, film festival and even had a shoe just designed for herself from the House of Ferragamo. Talk about the perks of being a star kid!
Known as the bad boy of Bollwood, Salman Khan has been in the news for every thing other than his acting. The actor's relationships, fights, accidents and even hugs with fellow actors become talk of the town but we are yet to see brilliant cinema from him. Salman Khan fans, don't kill us.
