Leela Adwani |Nov 16, 2020

Acting talents or drop-dead gorgeous looks don’t guarantee success in B-town. Here is the list of flop actors of Bollywood.

It goes without saying that there is no high-paid job on Earth coming with ease, there are no movie stars who make a killing income but sacrifice nothing to get a wealthy life. It’s so tough to sustain a successful career in an extremely competitive industry like Indian cinema. Acting talents or drop-dead gorgeous looks don’t guarantee success in B-town. Yes, we are talking about the flop actors of Bollywood.

Guess who are flop actors of Bollywood?

The tinsel town is a melting pot of fame, glamor, scandals, and of course, failure. Despite good personalities, charming looks, and even excellent acting ability, they still failed to make a mark in the film industry. Some of them have already settled down, others choose to try harder to get a more fruitful result, and some decided to opt for a different career path instead of being an actor.

Soha Ali Khan

Soha is not a too strange name for many people but she is still one of the flop actors of Bollywood. Hailing from the royal and powerful Pataudi family, she is the younger sister of superstar Saif Ali Khan and the youngest daughter of actress Sharmila Tagore. Despite being blessed with an angel-like look, she is unable to leave quite a long-lasting impression on the Bollywood fans’ minds.

Making her acting debut in the film Dil Maange More starring opposite Shahid Kapoor, Soha had a good beginning. She then appeared in several big-budget movies but her role was way too overshadowed by her co-stars'. After failing in her career as an actress, she made a career switch to become a writer and got married to Kunal Khemu. Until now, when talking about Soha Ali Khan, people will only remember her as a member of the Pataudi family.

Though she is listed among flop actors in Bollywood, Soha Ali Khan's education definitely makes you jaw-dropped. This girl is also among the smartest beauties of the industry.

Nargis Fakhri

The American movie actress didn’t choose to start her career in her home country but India. Unfortunately, she isn't one of the top successful foreign actors in Bollywood.

She began her career with the film Rockstar for which she got nominated for Filmfare best debut award. The fact is that she has everything in her look from a body to die for to a good height. However, all these factors couldn’t help the actress maintain a foothold in this tinsel town.

She was then featured in Akshay Kumar-superhit Housefull 3 but with a supporting role and appeared in some item songs but Nargis isn’t considered a big name in the film industry. However, with $12 million in 9 years, Nargis Fakhri's net worth at the age of 40 is worth admiring.

Arjun Kapoor

The name of Arjun would trigger a storm of controversies when he is found on the list of flop actors of Bollywood. The topics around the reason behind the failing career of this actor are still doing the rounds on many forums.

Coming from the Kapoors which is touted as one of the most powerful families in Hindi cinema’s history, Arjun Kapoor has a better background compared to other contemporaries. He made his movie debut in the film Ishaqzaade in 2012 and his career is described fluctuated. He only has a few commercial successes to his credit.

He usually makes headlines for his age-gap relationship with divorcee Malaika Kapoor rather than his film projects. That’s why words on the street have it that the main reason behind his career failure is the lack of talent.

Abhishek Bachchan

Like Arjun Kapoor, Abhishek is from a filmy background and the son of one of the greatest Bollywood actors of all time Amitabh Bachchan. Didn’t start with a bang, the actor debuted with the film Refugee in the year 2000. He was struggling to make it big in the film industry. His latest project in 2020 Breathe Into The Shadows didn't receive critical acclaims as well. His highest grossers during his two decades in the industry were the three installments of the hit series Dhoom.

In 2007, he tied the knot with former beauty queen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Even though they are now parents to an 8-year-old daughter, speculations are rife on the truth behind their marriage. The silence from the family is the best response for the haters.

Shruti Haasan

Fans of the actress will be stunned when their favorite celebrity is one of the flop actors of Bollywood. Known to be a much-loved diva of South Indian cinema, the 1986-born actress has also worked in Hindi-language films but hardly left a dominating impact in Bollywood.

The daughter of South Indian superstars Kamal Haasan and Sarika Haasan got several chances to appear in many Bollywood films with effective roles. Making her debut with the film Luck, Shruti then appeared in other movies but still failed to impress the B-wood fans with her acting ability.

She even tried hard to change her strategies as well as her look in order to gain more prominence but her tactics didn’t work well.

In fact, there are no exact criteria to measure the success of an actor, either the failure. We just make this list according to the topics that are already discussed on the Internet, so there is no offense, no bias here in the list of flop actors of Bollywood.
