7 Bollywood Movies That Helped In Changing An Actor’s Career For The Better

There are movies in an actor’s career where everyone has to sit up and take notice of him/her. We have had many actors and actresses who have that one movie that changed their careers for them. Not that their careers were all on a downward spiral, but this one role became the memorable one of them all.

#1. Saif Ali Khan – Omkara

Saif has always been known to experiment with his roles. But his performance as Langda Tyagi stands out and makes us take him more seriously as an actor. Even today his fans use this example while defending the star.

#2. Vidya Balan – The Dirty Picture

She is an excellent actress but her choice in movies didn’t give a credit to her until she appeared in this movie. It made everyone take notice of her and she has been doing more solo projects ever since.

#3. Nawazuddin Siddiqui – Gangs of Wasseypur

We already know how he has made appearances in a number of movies. But it was this Anurag Kashyap crime drama that introduced us to such a great actor and his career chart hasn’t dipped since.

#4. Ajay Devgn – Singham

The actor was doing a lot of comedies as well as dramas, because of which his image as an action hero was lost. But everything changed after Singham. He became the angry young man again with some amazing moves.

#5. Salman Khan – Wanted

Salman’s career can be divided into two parts – before Wanted and after Wanted. That’s how big the impact was of this movie on his career. Soon after came a string of action movies where the Bhai could do nothing wrong. The streak continues with Tiger Zinda Hain.

#6. Shahid Kapoor – Haider

Shahid was always the boy-next-door, be it in movies like Jab We Met or even R… Rajkumar. This Vishal Bhardwaj movie changed that image and Udta Punjab that followed made us believe that he could do so much more. We cannot wait to see him in Padmavati.

#7. Kangana Ranaut – Queen

We loved her in Tanu weds Manu but her performance and transformation as Rani showed us what a great actress she can be. That followed by her performance in movies like Tanu weds Manu returns and Simran just adds to the feathers on her hat.
