Bollywod is an industry where limelight and stardom evaluates an actor’s potential. Not always your talent gets you on top, it takes a lot of other things including luck. Few snatch the limelight and become a superstar overnight and a few never get their fair share of credibility. Never do we acknowledge their hard work of putting everything in a small role. They remain unnoticed.
1. R. Madhvan
Ranganathan Madhvan started his career with TV show and started getting recognition in Tamil Film industry. When we hear his name what we get in mind is Tanu wedsManu or 3 idiots. The sad part is even after giving hit movies like 3 idiot,Rang de Basanti he went unnoticed and the limelight was all for lead actor. He gave an all-time romantic movie RHTDM (Rehna Hai Tere Dil Me) which again was liked by many but his hard work is not recognized.
2. Randeep Hooda
Randeep Hooda started his career with Monsoon Wedding in 2001. In spite of his outstanding performance in the movie he couldn’t get any work in the industry for several years. His performance in Once upon a time in Mumbai fetch quite attention and he kept doing many roles. With him as lead role in Highway, the performance level was high but still the film couldn’t do well commercially. His performance in Sarabjeet wasnot given deserved credit.
3. Emraan Hashmi
Emraan made his acting debut with Footpath in 2003. He gave many hits like Murder, Gangster, Aashiq Banaya Aapne, Zeher, Aawarapan. His career went through many ups and downs. In 2008, he gave a huge hit with Jannat. His recent movies Badshaho, Raaz reboot couldn’t do well in theaters. Even after giving huge hits the actor has not got his deserved share of credit.
4. Abhay Deol
Abhay Deol proved to the Indian cinema that good looks aren’t required for good acting, all you need is acting skills. He started his acting career with the movie socha na tha and acted in a number of movies that stated how good script and acting can make a movie beautiful. Ahista Ahista, Ek chalees ki last local, Manorama six feet under, Dev D, Shanghai, Ranjhanaa, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobaara are his glorified performances. His recent movie Happy Bhaag Jaaegi was another brilliant movie. Still his worth is not measured in Bollywood.
5. Rajkumar Rao
Debut with Love sex aur Dhokha, this versatile actor got recognition in the year 2013 with Kai Po Che. He worked with many actors and performed versatile roles,proved everyone how one small role can mark impression on us with brilliant acting. His recent movies Bareilly Ki Barfi and Shaadi me Zaroor aana were praised by many.
6. Konkana Sen Sharma
Konkana Sen Sharma is truly an inspiration for all girls out there who are cautious of their looks and think without good looks they can’t act. She is a gem and with pure acting she has won hearts, got critiques praise but sadly didn’t get the deserved recognition from media. She won National Awards for Life in a Metro. Her role in Wake up Sid is too one of its kind.
7. Ronit Roy
After pursuing a very successful career in TV, he got his biggest hit in Bollywood with Udaan keeping the role of an alcoholic and abusive father based in Jamshedpur. He played supporting roles in few other movies too. Don’t you think he deserves much prominent roles?
8. Divya Dutta
Divya Dutta is an actor and model. Apart from Hindi and Punjabi she worked in Malyalam and English films as well. She performed as supporting actress beside many lead actors. She performed in Veer-Zaara, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Badlapur, Ragini MMS 2, Delhi 6, and Stanley’s Tiffin Box which are huge success. Her talent could have bagged more.
9. Vicky Kaushal
Vicky Kaushal started his journey with the award winning movie Masaan. His acting was undoubtedly phenomenal. Vicky Kaushal was also seen in Bombay Velvet, Zubaan,Luv shuv tey chicken khurana and Raman Raghav 2.0. His recent performance in Love per square foot is amazing and the movie is very refreshing. He will be seen opposite Alia bhatt in Raazi. We hope in the years to come he earns the reward he is deseving of.
10. Radhika Apte
In a very short span of career Radhika has proved herself as a very fine actress.However, she couldn’t grab limelight as compared to her contemporaries. However,she got quite attention because of the MMS scandal. Badlapur, Parched, Kabali,Phobia, Padman are a few movies where you can see her work.
