Making a name in the film industry in itself is a great achievement. Especially when everything has become so competitive. Whether one is a celebrity kid or no, nothing comes in a platter and everyone has to prove their caliber through tedious work.
Many such celebrities from Bollywood have their own stories and how they achieved success after the most trying times.
We bring you those movies that brought a turning point in these actors’ careers.
Akshay Kumar – Akshay acted in several films before but Mohra gave him the real success and recognition as an actor. His on-screen chemistry with Raveena Tandon was well liked by the audience, especially he became popular also because of the number ‘Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast’ and those peculiar dance moves.
Ranbir Kapoor – Ranbir was finally able to prove himself as an actor/performer through the movie ‘Wake Up Sid’. The film garnered acclaim from the critics. The audience then believed that the lad is damn serious with his work.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan – Undoubtedly Aishwarya Rai Bachchan gained immense fame and stardom before she established herself as an actress in her career, but she desperately needed a hit back in 1999 when ‘ Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ happened, and as we know Aishwarya never looked behind after that .
Hrithik Roshan – Hrithik is one of those few actors who are lucky enough to achieve stardom overnight that too from their very first movie! Kaho Na Pyaar Hai gave immense success and the actor ensured to maintain the benchmark ever since then. Also because he is one of the most hardworking actors in the industry he never let down his fans.
Shah Rukh Khan – SRK is the only actor in the industry who got embraced as a lover boy/ romantic hero of Bollywood after portraying villainous roles in several films. Movie called ‘Darr’ gave him immense popularity for his stupendous performance in a negative role. It was a remarkable work by him and the filmmakers in the industry knew the guy was going to make it big in future!
Kajol – Kajol rose to prominence through her performance in the movie ‘Baazigar’. Later followed the biggest blockbuster hit ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’. Kajol is one of the finest performers in the industry and is called to be very natural in her acting. Basically Kajol is known majorly because of her acting!

It was only after ‘Hum Tum’ was released in 2004 in which he played the solo male lead, his career took off! Khan even received National Film Award for Best actor for ‘Hum Tum’. Post that he started getting roles as single male lead, earned the trust of filmmakers.
Kareena Kapoor Khan – Having an elder sister Karisma Kapoor established in Bollywood, Kareena had a big challenge to prove herself to be equally good as her sister. However from her very first movie Kareena maintained her confidence and focus. She improved in every movie she appeared in. However ‘Jab We Met’ brought a real commercial success and people acknowledged her to really good at acting!
Priyanka Chopra – After winning the Miss world crown in the year 2000, Priyanka had her fair share of pressure to perform and gain acceptance by the audience who then believed models couldn’t act.
