12 Outside Actors Who Got Success Without Any Support


Though the topic of nepotism has been a hot topic in the Bollywood industry, it has also served to expose the true identities and faces of a number of well-known figures in the industry. The huge layer of dirt that exists behind this glossy industry is unmistakably hidden from the general public. Not only that, but a variety of other vocations, such as modelling, also have a dark secret! While Madhur Bhandarkar’s films – Heroine and Fashion – have given us a glance into society, there are still a number of concerns that viewers are unaware of. While we are all aware that in order to make it big in the entertainment world, one must either be related to a seasoned star’s family or have an industry godfather. However, several well-known celebrities have surprised both viewers and the cinema business by establishing themselves as legendary performers without the aid of a godfather or any other outside help, but rather by their own dedication and hard work. Take a look at this:

Siddhant Chaturvedi


An Indian actor made his Bollywood debut as a supporting character in the film Gully Boy, after beginning his career in 2016 with a brief role in the series Life Sahi Hai. While he received a lot of applause for his performance in the film, the actor also received a lot of praise for his breakout performance, and he became a star almost overnight. There were several times in his film where his performance overpowered that of the lead actor, Ranveer Singh. In terms of his future projects, the actor is now working on three films with actress Deepika Padukone: Bunty and Babli 2, Phone Bhoot, and an untitled Shakun Batra film.

Abhishek Banerjee


After his outstanding performance in the web series Paatal Lok and the film Stree, this casting director and famous actor rose to prominence in the industry. Abhishek began his acting career with the film Rang De Basanti and hasn’t looked back since. This actor is a self-made man who is currently working on his upcoming feature, Bhediya, thanks to his popular appearances in several web series and films.

Kirti Kulhari


With films like Uri: The Surgical Strike, Mission Mangal, Pink, and others, this actress has established herself as one of the industry’s self-made stars. Kirti has managed to steal the hearts of audiences with her extreme dedication and hard work in the web series Four More Shots Please Kirti has shot to prominence with her strong performance in the web series Four More Shots Please Kirti has managed to steal the hearts of audiences with her extreme dedication and hard work in the web series Four More Shots Please Kirti has managed to steal the hearts of audiences

Vikrant Massey


Believe it or not, we were quickly smitten by this actor after seeing him in the renowned serial Balika Vadhu, where he played a positive yet endearing character. Right!? Well-known in both the television and film industries, the actor has been in a number of other web series as well as short films. Haseen Dilruba’s latest role in the Netflix film Haseen Dilruba has helped him gain even more recognition in the industry. While we already know about his path from a television serial to Chappak, in which he co-starred with Deepika Padukone, this actor has established himself as one of the industry’s emerging stars on his own. Films like as Yaar Jigri and 14 are among the actor’s next ventures.

Kartik Aaryan


We don’t think we need to say much more about this actor’s brilliance at this point! What’s more surprising about the actor is that, despite coming from a family of doctors (his father is a paediatrician and his mother is a gynaecologist), he selected an entirely different career path! With his extended, uninterrupted speech from the film Pyaar Ka Punchnama, this self-made actor dominated the show.

Ayushmann Khurrana


Ayushmann Khurrana, a self-made actor who has given Bollywood back-to-back blockbuster smashes, is one of the most sought-after performers in the industry. The actor has not only dazzled viewers with his iconic performances, but he has also made it a point to include a hidden social message in nearly all of his films. And the actor is not only good on screen, but also in real life! Indeed, a good soul!

Jaideep Ahlawat


Jaideep had aspired to be an Indian Army officer, but instead chose to pursue a career as an actor, and his performance in the series Paatal Lok wowed spectators. The actor has just achieved success in the industry after overcoming many obstacles and years of hard labour. Despite coming from a non-filmmaking family, Jaideep has proven to be one of the most talented actors on the OTT platforms.

Amit Sadh


You may recall this actor for his outstanding performances in films like as Sarkar 3, Kai Po Che, Sultan, and others. Right!!? Amit began his career in the entertainment sector by appearing in a number of daily soap operas before moving on to Bollywood. Following his appearances in numerous serials, the actor made his Bollywood debut with the film Phoonk 2 and has established himself as one of the industry’s self-made performers.

Jitendra Kumar


Jitendra Kumar began his career in the industry by appearing in a number of online series. Following his triumph on tiny screens, the actor went on to build a name for himself on the big screen as well. While we already know about his outstanding performance in the film Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, in which he co-starred with Ayushmann Khurrana, the actor has developed a different fan base. When it comes to the actor’s future film, Jaadugar, he is now working on his character in the film.

Rajkummar Rao


One of those amazing actors in the industry that, no matter how much we write about them, will leave us speechless! Rajkummar Rao is one of the few prominent actors in the industry who didn’t require a helping hand to make it in the industry and has worked really hard to get to where he is now. Following his recent role in the film Roohi, the actor is gearing up for future projects Hum Do Hamare Do and Badhaai Do.

Sayani Gupta


This actress is more “Sayani” than everyone anticipated! LOL. Another lead from the series, Four More Shots Please, named Sayani Gupta, is one of the established actresses in the industry. With appearances in films such as Jolly LLB2, Pagglait, Article 15, and others, the actress grabbed the hearts of many and became an all-time favourite of audiences.

Taapsee Pannu


We already adored this actress, but following the release of her latest Netflix film, Haseen Dilruba, she made us all drool even more. Awarded numerous accolades for her stunning performances in films such as Pink, Thappad, Badla, Naam Shabana, and others, this actress has clearly established herself as one of the industry’s most powerful actresses.
