Talk Round' Town

Happy "Merci Beaucoup" Day!

Let's take a swift glance at the people who've been nothing but selfless and played a major role in the successful lives of our favorite celebrities!

BollyCurry is back to bring its readers an edition of the 'Merci Beaucoup' Day (in plain English, the Thank-You Day!) Many tinsel-town celebrities have fairy tale like stories where they've gone from rags-to-riches! While some were born with silver spoons gracing their mouths, others were not. But all said and done, there are a few people who've been the contributing factor in the name and fame earned by many. Let's take a swift glance at the people who've been nothing but selfless and played a major role in the successful lives of our favorite celebrities!

Deepika Padukone may have made a grand debut in the industry with Om Shanti Om (2007), but ever since then her career graph saw great downfall except for a few successful movies once in a blue moon. A major reason for this was Padukone's 'girl next door' image in all her movies. It wasn't until Imtiaz Ali suggested the charming gal test her mettle by choosing the role of Veronica over Meera in Cocktail (2012), that she was able to free herself of the metaphorical cage the industry had locked her into. Veronica's character brought out the hidden streak and pushed Deepika to step out of her comfort zone, enacting someone out of her league. That is when the film-makers saw the powerhouse of talent in her and her career graph finally hit the uphill, all thanks to Ali.

Aditya Chopra

Often, film-makers prefer to pursue the elements that would guarantee success for a movie - be it repeating the couple that shone through in their last movie or the music director who just gave the best song of the year. Aditya Chopra, however, is a man who takes a leap of faith in the newer lot and believes in moving past the status quo of B-Town film makers. Chopra has a history of launching newcomers, specifically those who didn't make it to the approval list of many other veteran directors. Those very newcomers are now well established actors. To name a few, Anushka Sharma, Ranveer Singh, Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor are among them. The man who saw extra ordinary in ordinary is whom such celebrities owe their success to!

Karan Johar

Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt could've easily stepped into Bollywood with the help of their commendable fathers who are the creme de la creme of the industry. Yet the duo chose not to make a debut from their home productions, but it was Karan Johar who helped them make an ever lasting impression on the viewers. The duo along with Sidharth Malhotra experienced the grandeur and magnificence of school life through Johar's directorial venture Student Of The Year (2012). The movie was an instant hit and the trio garnered overnight success, the foremost credit for which goes to Johar.

Mohit Suri

The lesser known fact about Shraddha Kapoor is that the actress had acted in Teen Patti (2010) and Luv Ka The End (2011) before making it big through Aashiqui 2 (2013). Similarly, Aditya Roy Kapur had tasted disappointment in the form of London Dreams (2009), Action Replayy (2010) and Guzaarish (2010) before he finally struck the right chord. Director Mohit Suri, launched the two Kapoors in his film as the leads, becoming their ladder to success. Aashiqui 2 went on to becoming one of the best romantic films of that year!  

Salman Khan

Last but not the least is the Macho Man of Bollywood, Salman Khan. The talented actor tops the list as he has countless people that are grateful to him for his help, support and encouragement. He has been said to set numerous people on the path of acting who were far from the thought of entering the glamorous world. He has launched many actresses opposite him and provided them a once in a life time opportunity by ensuring shared screen space with the dabbang Khan! A few people who should be sending Thank-You cards to Khan today are, Katrina Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha, Himesh Reshammiya, Arjun Kapoor, Sajid-Wajid, Zarine Khan, Sana Khan, Daisy Shah and Mudassar Khan.

Bollywood is full of people who either need to thank someone, or be thanked themselves. At this auspicious day, we invite all of them to make an effort and take the first step at expressing their gratitude. We at BollyCurry, would like to thank our lovely readers who continue to motivate us! With this, we sign off until the next time when we shall be back with an equally interesting read. You all are welcome to come and share your opinions on who deserves to be thanked for their actions.
