7 Bollywood Stars Who Started Their Acting Career With Music Videos, Check Out


Before social media even existed, movie fans did not even have the luxury of knowing who is doing what in the world of celebrities or who was making their film debut.

Before that one had truly “arrived,” Instagram collaborations appeared much later when an actor was spotted in a video of a well-known pop tune. The following list includes seven Bollywood stars who truly made their acting debut in a music video:

Shahid Kapoor

In the well-known Aankhon Mein Tera Hi Chehra by the 90s pop band Aryans, we all recall a young, presumably teenage Shahid running around and tripping over his building neighbour (played by Hrishita Bhatt).

Bipasha Basu

If you can still recall seeing the seductive Bipasha dancing to Tu in Sonu Nigam’s music video, you were a true child of the 1990s. One of his biggest hits was the song.

John Abraham

Few people will recall that John Abraham began his acting career with Husna Di Sarkar, a well-known Punjabi song by Jazzy B.

Vidya Balan

One of the best actors in the nation, Vidya is still remembered for her role as the stunning girl opposite Palash Sen in Kabhi Aana Tu Meri Gali.

Milind Soman

You might disregard the films he has produced, but you must remember his contribution to Alisha Chinai’s Made in India!

Priyanka Chopra

Okay, you will only remember this if, like me, you also spent a lot of time during the school day watching music videos. Prior to becoming known as PC the “desi” girl, Priyanka was heard singing in the song Sajjan Mere Satrangiya by Daler Mehendi.

Deepika Padukone

If you remember her from Himesh Reshammiya’s Naam Hai Tera, you’re a genuine Deepika fan.
