There is no shortcut to success and who could set an example better than these Bollywood celebs, who did everything to reach the position, where everybody know their names.

Ranbir later confessed that his main motive for working on Black was to ensure that Bhansali liked him enough to cast him as an actor for his next project.
Whereas, Hrithik had assisted his dad, Rakesh Roshan, in his film, Koyla & Karan Arjun and both of the films, had Shahrukh Khan.
