Flop Comebacks

testimony to this as even the most talented actresses have had a series of flops when they tried to make a comeback.

Today the name that tops the list is Preity Zinta.

Post break up she tried to distract herself by getting back to acting and producing her film ‘Ishkq in Paris’. Thus, pouring in all her efforts and money to reclaim her lost glory but alas! It was all in vain. Blame it on her co-star who is a newcomer or just the film altogether, the bottom line is the film was a flop. These days we see her trying too hard in every possible event. Yes, the actress is still the dimple queen with a cute personality and bubbly aura around her but on screen she seems to have lost her magic touch. She still has a shot with Sunny paaji in ‘Bhaiyyaji Superhit’.

Rani Mukherjee is the second name on the chart. Acting was her forte as we still remember her critically acclaimed performance in ‘Black’ and a dozen other movies that kept Rani as the top actress in Bollywood at one point.

With the blessings of Yash Raj Films she is getting a chance to revive her magic with the upcoming ‘Mardaani’.
