Why The Struggle Will Continue Even After Being Launched By A Superstar

If wishes were horses, every aspiring actress would love to be launched in a film featuring a superstar. But does being paired opposite an A-lister always guarantee a successful career in Bollywood? We looked at the actresses who made their debut with mega stars and here’s what the success-failure ratio looks like.

1. Salman Khan

Besides Sonakshi Sinha, none of the actresses who were launched by Salman Khan have managed to make a mark in Bollywood. Though Katrina Kaif wasn’t given the big break by Bhai, he is definitely responsible in some way for making her the star she is today.


2. Shah Rukh Khan

Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma are shining examples of why you should make your debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan. Both of them are amongst the leading actresses in Bollywood and have many hits to their credit. The other debutants, though, are not heard of.


3. Aamir Khan

Besides Gracy Singh, Asin, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Aamir Khan has barely worked with newcomers. We all know how the career of the first two panned put but now that Shaikh has Thugs of Hindostan lined up, she could break the jinx.


4. Akshay Kumar

Bipasha Basu, Daisy Bopanna, Neetu Chandra, Trisha Krishnan, and Lara Dutta are some of the actresses who made their debut with Akki. Not one of them has had an illustrious career.


5. Ajay Devgn

Actresses who worked with Devgn in their first movie, too, had no luck in the industry. From Manasvi Mamgai (Action Jackson) to Sayyeshaa Saigal (Shivaay), they all were forgotten soon after their debuts.


6. Hrithik Roshan

Ameesha Patel, Pooja Hegde, and Barbara Mori are the unlucky ones here. While Roshan continues to sign big films, these actresses are struggling to get roles.
