Actresses who failed to break through in Bollywood, from Shamita Shetty to Preeti Jhangiani

Bollywood is home to many commoners who become famous over night, but carving out your own niche in the business is no easy task. Despite having outstanding appearance and respectable acting abilities, some celebrities struggle to stand out in this cutthroat business. Even after giving standout performances in their first movies, some performers in Bollywood still fail to leave an impression. Below is a list of five Bollywood women who failed to succeed in the movie industry.

Shamita Shetty

Shamita Shetty, sister of Bollywood actress and fitness fanatic Shilpa Shetty, tried her hand at acting. She made her acting debut in the movie Mohabbatein in 2000. For her work in the Yash Raj movie, she even won the IIFA Award for Star Debut of the Year (Female). Shamita's popularity eventually began to wane. She appeared in a few movies, including Fareb and Zeher, but she was unable to become well-known. She last appeared in the online series The Tenant, which Sushrut Jain directed.

Divya Khosla Kumar

At the release of her first film, Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Sathiyo, Divya Khosla Kumar began her career as an actor. In the 2004 action film, which also starred Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, and Bobby Deol, Divya shot to popularity almost immediately. After being married to T-Series' managing director, Bhushan Kumar, Divya abruptly left the film industry. After the box office failure Satyameva Jayate 2, she made her comeback to the entertainment industry.

Gayatri Joshi

Gayatri Joshi, who made her Bollywood film debut with the movie Swades, was one of the select few who had the opportunity to appear on screen with Shah Rukh Khan. Gayatri, who captured the hearts of the audience with her simplicity in the musical drama, was also unable to make it in the movie industry. She said the entertainment sector farewell after being married to business magnate Vikas Oberoi. She last made an appearance in the 2014 movie PK.

Gracy Singh

Gracy Singh gained enormous acclaim because to her first performance in the Aamir Khan-starrer Lagaan. She continued to act in movies after Lagaan, including Munna Bhai MBBS, Gangaajal, and Santosham. Gracy demonstrated her acting talent by taking on a variety of roles, but she was unable to achieve success.

Preeti Jhangiani

Preeti Jhangiani, a second Mohabbatein newcomer, charmed viewers with her on-screen charisma in the SRK-starrer. She put her acting abilities to the test in films like Omkara, Annarth, LOC: Kargil, and Awara Paagal Deewana, but the general public was unimpressed. Preeti gave up her acting career after being married to actor-model Praveen Dabas in 2008.
