Tanushree Dutta, Koena Mitra, Sherlyn Chopra: 10 bold actresses who failed in Bollywood

Bollywood industry is open for all. Some get fame, and many become unknown faces in few years. It is very difficult to get a big break in Bollywood and, above that, it is extremely tough to maintain your appearance. There is a huge struggle. You have to construct your own path for survival. There are Bollywood actresses who did extremely sensuous role and had name and fame in starting of the career but after that they became unknown faces in the industry. Some of them failed miserably and settled in their personal lives. Some of them left the industry forever and no one knows where they are.

So, here we present to you bold heroines who failed in Bollywood

 Tanushree Dutta

Former Miss India, Tanushree Dutta made her Bollywood debut with 2005 release Aashiq Banaya Aapne opposite Emraan Hashmi in which Tanushree left but little to imagination for her audience. She became a small-time rage almost overnight. However, her stardom was very short lived. This film was followed by a number other flicks as well including, Chocolate, Good Boy Bad Boy etc. However, nothing could make her a star that could be banked upon. Cut to 2016, Tanushree Dutta cannot be recognised not only by industry insiders, but also her small fan base.

Mallika Sherawat

Mallika Sherawat rose to fame with her film, ‘Khwahish’ in which she did some seventeen kisses. This was followed up with a number of other films including ‘Murder’. However, Mallika could not make a standing of herself. Today, she can be seen doing small roles in films of different languages and is dating a firang.

Koena Mitra

The highest points of Sherlyn’s Bollywood career are her extremely steamy scenes in ‘Timepass’ and ‘Red Swastik’. But hey, she isn’t complaining because she is a Twitter celebrity today! If not in Bollywood, nudity can certainly buy you fame online!

Neha Dhupia has the Miss India title to her name (2002) and had the perfect looks for a Bollywood actress. She has been a part of many successful movies, none of which fetched her credit though. The bold actress did not hesitate in doing some hot scenes in movies like ‘Qayamat’, ‘Julie’, ‘Kya Kool Hai Ham’ and ‘Garam Masala’ but her acting talent was not as per expectations and she was later seen doing some cameo and side roles in movies.

Meghna Naidu

Sameera Reddy
