Sure there’s nothing like a ‘ good movie’ or a ‘good film’ it’s the actor that makes it good. Just one blockbuster is enough to bring actors’ dying careers back on track. And just like that, these movies managed to be game-changers for these actors:
Wanted- Salman Khan
The Bhaijaan of Bollywood too has a phase where nothing seemed to work for him anymore. Back to backflips like “Hello”, “Main Aur Mrs. Khanna” and “Janeman” his career almost took a downward trajectory. But thanks to the Prabhudeva Directorial ‘ Wanted’, a Telugu Remake film, the movie was a big hit and Salman was back with a bang!
Haider- Shahid Kapoor
With films like “Fida” “Chupke Chupke” and “Vivaah” Shahid needed a din that would help him get out of the typical ‘ chocolate boy’ zone and Haider did it for him. It was a 2014 film, “Haider”, an adaptation of Hamlet, that changed his career making him a versatile actor in the eyes of the audience.
Shah Rukh Khan- Devdas
Sure the Badshah of Bollywood has given us plenty of hits like “DDLJ” and “Kuch kuch Hota Hai” he later got sticker into the same role, known as an actor who can only play ‘charmer’ or romantic roles. With “Devdas”, he was able to revive his career, giving it a new identity.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui- Gangs of Wasseypur
It’s sure a struggle for somebody to make it big into Bollywood, especially if the somebody is an outsider, who has no connections in the industry. But Nawaz proved it wrong big time! In his days of struggle with movies like “Munna Bhai MBBS”, the actor rose to success with his iconic character of Faizal in Gangs of Wasseypur.
Satya- Manoj Bajpayee
With his series of flops in the 90s with films like “Dastak” and “Droh Kaal” the 1998 film, Satya got his true potential out. Since then, there’s no stopping for Manoj, who is acclaimed to be one of the finest method actors of this time.
