10 Worst Bollywood Actors Who Should Quit Acting

Would you like to know Bollywood’s most dangerous malaise?

Nepotism.

More than half of the actors working today are sons or daughters of somebody famous in Bollywood. It seems like acting is not a skill, anymore. Any Tom, Dick or Harry can walk onto a movie set and become an actor. Apart from a few exceptions like Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, most of the products of nepotism — as you will see in the list below — are horrible actors.

The second easiest route to enter into Bollywood is modeling. When did modeling become synonymous with acting. Both are completely different career paths. But welcome to Bollywood! Here, producers treat fashion ramps as training grounds for actors. Again, if you set aside a few exceptions like Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, most of the model-turned actors are of no good.

With the two major reasons for existence of bad actors in Bollywood out-of-the-way, here is the list of 10 worst Bollywood actors:

 

10. Tusshar Kapoor

I feel for Tusshar Kapoor. It must be very difficult for him to have a superstar dad and a super-talented sister around. And on top of that, he seems like a nice guy. But the harsh truth is also that he is a bad actor. He is okay in comedies, but in everything else he is miserable. It’s better if he goes behind the camera like his sister and focus on production side of things.

 

9. Salman Khan

Well, this is going to ruffle a few feathers. Salman Khan is not a bad actor per se, but he is so caught up in his own image that he has become a one-dimensional performer who only knows how to make money at the box-office. He doesn’t want to come out of his comfort zone, and as a result he is his own prop. The last time Salman acted was probably in ‘Tere Naam’. Though, he was really exceptional in ‘Hum Aapke Hai Kaun’ and ‘Hum Dil Chuke Sanam’.

 

8. Himesh Reshammiya

He is a talented music director. In fact, he is one of the most original classical music composers working in India today. I would even go as far as saying that he is a decent singer too. Okay, may be not! But actor? Who asked him to become an actor? I know who. Himesh Reshammiya. It seems like all the money that his singing brought in, he invested into becoming an actor himself. 10 movies later, he is still struggling to make a name for himself as an actor.

 

7. Nargis Fakhri

One bad casting can endanger the whole reputation of a movie. Forget reputation, it can ruin the movie itself. ‘Rockstar’ could have been the best film of Imtiaz Ali had he cast someone else instead of Nargis. But I guess he chose beauty over talent and as a result the film suffered. ‘Rockstar’ is still a great film, but it could have so much better. Again, let’s re-emphasize that modeling has nothing to do with acting. The nuance that acting requires is much more than just walking on a ramp.

 

6. Jackky Bhagnani

Vashu Bhagnani as many of you would know is a well known producer who has several great films to his credit. So, of course when his son grows up, he launches him with fanfare in one of his own films. The film tanks. He makes another film for his son. That film also tanks. I guess how can you tell a father to not care for his son. But at some point you have to accept the bitter truth that your son can’t succeed as an actor so let’s try something else.
