Shiney Ahuja – The forever shame to Bollywood

Frankly speaking, Shiney Ahuja is a talented actor who won Best Male Debut at 2003 Filmfare Award with the role in Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi. This 45-year-old actor also left remarkable impressions in a number of hits before 2010.

Till now, Ameesha Patel is still a bombshell with her beauty.

Amisha made her debut in 2000 in the commercial hit Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai along with Hrithik Roshan. The beautiful actress also joined the 2001 blockbuster Gadar: Ek Prem Katha with Sunny Deol and Amrish Puri. It seemed Ameesha Patel had an easy start and soon became one of the most-searched name in the industry.

However, in 2002, controversies burst out when Ameesha accused her father of misusing her hard-earned money. Due to stress from the incident, the actress also broke up with her 5-year boyfriend at that time and took a break from her movie career. Now people hardly sees Ameesha in important roles.

Pulkit Samrat and Vivek Oberoi – Don’t mess with Salman Khan!

It’s no coincidence that we put these Bollywood actors together. They all ruined their career for the same reason, messing with the Big Boss host Salman Khan.

Pulkit Samrat might have roses laid out on his path to top Bollywood actors if he got on well with his rakhi brother-in-law in the past. According to reports, Pulkit Samrat got married to Shweta Rohira who happened to be Salman Khan’s rakhi sister.

The marriage was so short-lived that only few people remembered it. And Pulkit Samrat was the one to file a divorce, which was frowned upon by Salman.

Pulkit Samrat is living with Kriti Kharbanda after breaking up with Yami Gautam.

With the influence of Salman Khan in the Bollywood industry, it’s understandable why Pulkit Samrat’s modelling and acting career went downhill after that. Some even rumoured the split of Pulkit Samrat and Yami Gautam was due to Salman.

Moving to the case of Vivek Oberoi, we must mention Aishwarya Rai as well. At that time, Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan just broke up, and it’s reported that Ash found some peaceful moments besides Vivek.

Aishwarya Rai and Vivek Oberoi used to have feelings for each other.

Salman Khan then called Vivek many times and harassed him over the beauty queen. Vivek said the drunk Salman made up to 42 calls and used harassing languages, which he couldn’t bear any longer.

Vivek Oberoi decided to unveil the case to the media but didn’t receive support from any, even Aishwarya Rai. What happened later you can figure out.

The sober Salman Khan had enough tools to suppress such scandals and made Vivek unable to glow in the industry as before.
