8 Bollywood Stars Whose Popularity Remained Unaffected By Their Box Office Flops
Crucial to the sustenance of a Bollywood star is the need to deliver big at the box office to pave their way ahead. While Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan and in the newer stars Varun Dhawan, have been actors who have cracked box office like nobody else, there a number of Bollywood actors including stars kids who trying hard to keep going one film at a time, experimenting, exploring and seeing what actually works for them.
Films choices do play a major part in achieving success as acting abilities do not, but there are certain actors have been able to maintain their name and popularity despite recurring failures at the box office. Not only have they more than one big film in the pipeline but also their fans adore them only not enough to make it big at the box office. Take a look at who all in Bollywood are unaffected by box office failures.
A star performer who has faltered on many occasions with some really bad film choices has certainly proven that he is a director’s actor and can stun one and all with his performance. But his flops are too many to ignore where at a point he totally lost the game with too many hits in a row. A hit is still not an assurance like his last flop Rangoon, but his popularity is certainly insured.
He is certainly the slowest student when compared to his contemporaries Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt. Each of his hits has been compensated by flops and he is surely experimenting his way ahead. But with a solid backing from Karan Johar, his mentor in the industry and a loyal fan base the actor has many films ahead that ensure that he is not going anywhere anytime soon.
Known more as a style icon than for her films in Bollywood, Sonam is not the most bankable actress out there. It took her a solid 8 years to prove herself as a performer with Neerja and she still has a long way to go. But the knowledge of her strengths and weaknesses has sure maintained her name and will ensure a popular future ahead.
She has recently set foot in trying to get independent hits with films like Noor and Akira but in vain as these films tanked miserably at the box office, still living by her Dabangg fame with many more films in the future, Sonakshi is here to stay.
If someone in Bollywood desperately needs to score a hit it is Katrina Kaif and it is certainly coming her way this December with Tiger Zinda Hai. But her luck has not shinned brightly since 2014 after Bang Bang was a hit at the box office and yet she has gone back one big film after another and is gaining more and more of a following each day.
Saif Ali Khan
After Race 2 back in 2013, Saif has not given a single hit, but that did not stop films from coming his way or his performances going unnoticed in the films that failed to work. The actor is still keen on his experiments and despite big setbacks like Chef, Saif has never dropped out of the limelight or has been forgotten.
Another actor who knows how to compensate for her weak acting abilities, she has strategically tapped into her power of drawing audiences by simply doing back to back hit item numbers. Her future in acting might remain weak, but that will not fade her into oblivion.
Call it the magic of the Kapoor surname or faith in his abilities as a performer, the decade-old actor has faced major setbacks after the success of Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani in 2013. With back to back flops till Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, experimenting has not really helped him sustain but his acting abilities did. He surely has a long way to go no matter how many flops try to stop him.
Is it just us or do you think too that it’s not really a great time for S’s in Bollywood?
