Our country is filled with different forms of talent artistes. Some are singers, some are actors and so on. A lot of celebrities like Kishore Kumar in the yesteryears were good at both singing and acting and excelled in both these fields but then there are those Bollywood singers who have turned into terrible actors and still keep trying.
The Bollywood singers are superstars in their own territory and have billions of fans across the country. In spite of this they don't seem to be satisfied and unnecessarily they try their hand in untested waters. Singers like Sonu Nigam had a disastrous acting career and the latest to join him is Yo Yo Honey Singh who has taken upon acting in the upcoming movie The Xpose.
Lets take a look at all these fantastic Indian singers who have turned into terrible actors in Bollywood.
Yo Yo Honey Singh
The latest entrant to this club is Yo Yo Honey Singh - playing a negative role in the upcoming The Xpose.
He does not seem to realize that all his popularity stems from his nasal singing skills and not his acting performance. He grew hair, straightened it, lost some weight and continues to make films through it all.
Sonu Nigam started out as a child actor in the early 80s. And then came 'Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani' in 2002. The lesser said, the better.
He is a great playback singer is an established fact. However, his acting leaves much to be desired. He has been seen in bit roles in like movies Rakhta Charitra, but his lead role in Kuchh Kariye (2010) was an absolute disaster.
First came a Punjabi film called Mitti in 2010, and the next year a typical flop called Loot. No director has signed Mika Singh since.
Lucky Ali appeared in a number of films in the 70s. He stepped into Bollywood as an actor with Sur (2002), and Kaante in the same year which were absolute nonsense.
When Aditya Narayan followed his father's footsteps and became a singer, it was good. Given his good looks Vikram Bhatt signed him up for his horror flick Shaapit. The boy even bagged a Best Male Debut nomination at the Zee Cine Awards. He has not been seen in any more movies after that.
The first Indian Idol winner became a household name in 2005. But it was a short-lived fame due to his forgettable 2008 film Lottery.
