Bollywood is not the industry of glamour, money, love, and support; but it also is a literal battlefield where every actor/actress is constantly in the race of becoming the highest paid actor ever. While there are some B-town actresses who have successfully lived their dream of ruling over the Bollywood, there are also a few who had entered the industry with a blockbuster and within a moment after that, they were gone! Invisible, to be specific. The life of some Bollywood divas never turned out to be as glamorous as they must have dreamt of.
Here’s a list of actresses whose Bollywood careers ended as fast as lightning. They’ve had the shortest on-screen life so far:
1. Esha Deol – 9 Years
Daughter Esha never proved to be successful in her Bollywood career like her mother Hema Malini. We saw the actress in some not-so-hit movies like Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe, Tell Me O Khuda, Naa Tum Jaano Na Hum, Yuva, Dhoom, and Kaal. She got married to businessman Bharat Takhtani in 2002 and, soon after that she gave up on acting to focus on her married life. Later in 2017, the couple were blessed with a baby girl who they named Radhya.
2. Ayesha Takia – 9 Years
Before entering the Bollywood industry, Ayesha was seen in some music videos and had appeared in some ads too as a child actor. Remember her Complan commercial with Shahid?
Ayesha gave some memorable performances in Dor (2006) and Wanted (2009).
3. Udita Goswami – 9 Years
Udita, who had debuted in the Hindi film industry with the 2003 film Paap is currently living a happy life with her husband, director Mohit Suri, and daughter. In her Bollywood career of 9 years, the actress had worked in 14 films including Zeher and Aksar.
4. Shamita Shetty – 7 Years
Shamita Shetty debuted in Bollywood with Mohabbatein as Uday Chopra’s love interest. Later after this blockbuster movie, the actress went on do some movies like Zeher, Bewafaa, and Cash as the lead actress, but unfortunately, her movies never managed to do good at the box office.
5. Asin Thottumkal – 7 Years
Asin, who is currently cherishing her happy married life and parenthood, was already a star in the south industry before debuting in Bollywood with Aamir Khan in Ghajini. Unfortunately, she didn’t have a successful career in this industry as that of the Tamil and Telugu industry.
6. Kim Sharma – 6 Years
Just like Shamita Shetty, Kim Sharma too had debuted in Bollywood industry with Mohabbatein. Post her debut film, she did movies like Tum Se Achcha Kaun Hai and Tom, Dick, and Harry. Kim was never really in the news for her acting skills, but she managed to grab the limelight in past for quite some time for her relationship with Yuvraj Singh.
7. Twinkle Khanna – 6 Years
Twinkle Khanna is currently a popular author, columnist, interior designer and now also a producer with her film Padman. Though she quite successful right now when she’s off the camera, Twinkle had accepted the fact in past that she was a terrible actor. Her first film was Rajkumar Santoshi’s 1995 romantic drama Barsaat, opposite Bobby Deol, and her last one was Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega.
8. Tanushree Dutta – 5 Years
Former Miss India Universe, Tanushree Dutta had entered the Bollywood industry with smashing hit Aashiq Banaye Aapne opposite Emraan Hashmi. She was last seen in Apartment (2010). The actress has literally disappeared from the limelight since then.
