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:
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).
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.
Few people will recall that John Abraham began his acting career with Husna Di Sarkar, a well-known Punjabi song by Jazzy B.
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.
You might disregard the films he has produced, but you must remember his contribution to Alisha Chinai’s Made in India!
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.
If you remember her from Himesh Reshammiya’s Naam Hai Tera, you’re a genuine Deepika fan.
