Mina Muzumdar |Feb 09, 2019

It’s been a long while since the last time we heard of Tanushree Dutta. You possibly were an Aashiq back then, weren’t you?

Undoubtedly, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra still remain the hottest names up till now, but not Udita Goswami. The last time Zeher’s actress got featured in a film was 2012. After that, she disappeared from the silver screen despite the fact that she gained herself a momentum with Zeher.

Come to think of it, it was quite a good time when Aashiq Banaya Aapne used to be played aloud on CD players. iPhones and social media such as Twitter and Facebook weren’t so popular back then, and that was possibly the reason why some celebrities’ names got oblivion - we couldn’t catch up to them on social media.

Here are 9 actresses who got their reputation skyrocketed after one night and fans going crazy about. No matter how famous they were, their names mysteriously faded away.

So are you ready to take a stroll down the memory lane? Let’s have a quick workout over it.

She made her Bollywood debut in 2002 with Mohabbatein. Mohabbatein and Awara Paagal Deewana are the two films that made the actress’ name known.
