The Bollywood business is similar to any other in that children follow in their parent’s footsteps and pursue the same professional path. But don’t all professions have those audacious outsiders who carve out a space for themselves by building a name for themselves?
There are some Bollywood celebs who made it big without any film business connections, and their stories are incredibly inspiring.
Shah Rukh Khan
Did you know that SRK, a Delhi boy, has always aspired to join the Indian Army? He had never imagined himself on the big screen, but fate had other plans for him. He began with a TV program and was subsequently dubbed the Badshah of Bollywood.
Priyanka Chopra struggled in the movies after winning the Miss World competition at the age of 18 in 2000. Her first films were critical and commercial disasters until she met Andaaz. Since then, there has been no turning back.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
When she was named Miss World in 1994, Aishwarya was not even close to the glittering world of Bollywood. Her unwavering will to achieve brilliance and achievement led her to forge her own path.
Ranveer had always wanted to be an actor, but he lacked the necessary contacts. He began as an assistant director and conducted numerous auditions. Shanoo Sharma, YRF’s casting director, saw him and the rest is history.
Deepika, for those who are unaware, competed at the national level in badminton (her father is a badminton player too). Her pals advised her to pursue modelling. That’s how she ended herself in Mumbai, working on Himesh Reshammiya’s song video. Farah Khan signed her for Om Shanti Om at this time.
Anushka was loving her modelling career when her management informed her she needed to apply for Bollywood. She then auditioned for Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, unaware that it was a YRF production. Aditya Chopra was drawn in by her confidence.
Katrina was rejected by several directors due to her strong English accent and poor Hindi diction. To build a name for herself in the profession, the diva worked her way up as she mastered the language. She is regarded as one of the most dedicated performers in the industry.
