But it was what one would call it ‘“ ‘˜Luck by chance’ or ‘˜Destiny’ these actors not only entered the ‘˜tinsel town’ but left their impression on the cinema lovers. Let’s take a look at the stars who were of the opinion that acting is not really a big deal…
Bollywood- the name says it all.
While the competition to become rich and famous has always intrigued us- the commoners, those who have it in their genes, did not really have to dig their brains to get through.
While there are hundreds out there, who step into this acting pool- the city of dreams, as they call it, many of the actors we die to watch onscreen, did not really think about a career in it.
But it was what one would call it – ‘Luck by chance’ or ‘Destiny’ these actors not only entered the ‘tinsel town’ but left their impression on the cinema lovers. Let’s take a look at the stars who were of the opinion that acting is not really a big deal…
1. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan:-
Recently declared as one of the ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’, she never decided on a career in Bollywood. Instead she planned to pursue a career in architecture. I can’t really imagine this beauty as an architect. Perhaps, the sight of her wearing that yellow ceramic cap, working on construction sites, just doesn’t fit my mind. She is intelligent and can influence the minds of many people, not only in India but around the world. So, wouldn’t you have just loved to see a beautiful and mesmerizing leader as her? Sigh! How I wish…
2. Kareena Kapoor Khan:-
Born with a silver spoon in mouth and acting in genes, cinema came naturally to this Kapoor beauty. Surprisingly, studies influenced her and she intended on pursuing law. As Sonam Kapoor said, “Kareena is the Pink Ville of Bollywood,” which option would she choose? Guess, I’d rather prefer to read her gossip columns in Vogue rather than reading about her in the TOI fighting a legal battle!
3. John Abraham:-
The heartthrob of a number of young girls out there, never really intended on a taking up a career in acting, as he holds a Bachelor’s degree in economics and a MMS from Narsee Moniee Institute of Management Studies to his credit. He has even worked with an advertising agency. I’m sure that the agencies’ profits must have soared high back then. But I’d rather drool over seeing him hanging out half-naked from a moving bus. Yes, that comes from Shoot Out at Lokhandwala.
4. Priyanka Chopra:-
Although her parents belonged from a medical background, she set off to US to pursue a career either in either software engineering or as a criminal psychologist. Thank God for her mom enrolled her into a beauty pageant. But wouldn’t you want to see a hot, sexy and bold criminal psychologist? I think, I could commit a crime to meet her later, rather than bearing with her endeavours in acting and now singing.
5. Parineeti Chopra:-
Moving to London for studies, receiving a triple honours degree in business, finance and economics, I wonder what motivated her to take up acting as a career. Maybe, economic recession. Living with her cousin, I am sure, would have made a solid influence on her and bang on she follows PC’s footsteps. I wouldn’t really be surprised if she starts singing too. I believe she would make an amazing Indira Nooyi- part 2 or Parineeti Chopra-part 1. What do you say?
Taking a look at the movies released in the past two years, these names form an integral part of Bollywood today. Do let us know which actor’s professional choice intrigued you the most.
