Daring to live your dream is a tough job, and
requires a great deal of hard work, making the correct choices and a
huge amount of destiny's companionship. Its easy to gain fame but
keeping it cherished for long is not an easy task. Not
everyone gets an opportunity to act in Bollywood, but even less get to
dream career. Some come and go and only the chosen ones get to stay in
the limelight for eons; and these special stars get the privilege of
making a place for themselves on the screen and in our hearts. This time
around, BollyCurry takes a look at a few of our celebs
who seem to be having a dream run at the Box Office and in the hall of
fame alike, with their efforts paying off and their dedication taking
heartthrob from across the border is a dream come true for the female
populace as a whole, but Fawad Khan
is not just a pretty face. Entering
Bollywood with a dream debut, he kicked off his career with Khoobsurat
co-starring in-house fashionista Sonam Kapoor
. The film received mostly
positive reviews and did good business at the box office as well.
Though it may not have been a money machine, the film got Mr. Khan the
recognition he desired. He received the Best Bollywood Debut at the
Masala Awards 2014 and the Fresh Face of the Year at the Hello Hall of
Fame Awards. At the recently conducted 60th
this handsome gentleman took home the Filmfare trophy for Best Debut
Male. He is currently riding high on the success of his debut film and
is being offered numerous projects from B-Town biggies. Fawad Khan
undoubtedly is in one of the best phases of his career!
Ever since Raanjhanaa
released, Sonam Kapoor
has proven that she just isn't a pretty face and
has the super model's posing secret in her kitty. This Kapoor lass also
has the potential to act and how! Raanjhanaa
turned her career
around and Kapoor invested her time in choosing the right movies where
she gets her space and is able to showcase her talent. She has played a
variety of roles in her recent films, be it the ambitious Zoya of Raanjhanaa
, a village belle in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
(2013), a working woman with a penchant for shoes in Bewakoofiyaan
(2014), a sports physiotherapist in Khoobsurat
(2014) or a con woman in the recently released Dolly Ki Doli
(2015). She won the Best Actress Rom-Com award for Khoobsurat
the Stardust Awards. Sonam Kapoor's choice of films has definitely
played a strong role in establishing her career and giving her an edge
above the obvious.
young lady may have not gotten the dream debut she wished for, but she definitely
got an amazing comeback film. Two long years after Luv Ka The End
(2011) released, Shraddha Kapoor
was offered Aashiqui 2
(2013). She grabbed the offer
without second thoughts and turned into a star overnight after the film
released to rave reviews. Since then there has been no looking back.
Her next release Ek Villain
(2014), opposite Bollywood's
new heartthrob Sidharth Malhotra
, gave her commercial success
along with an opportunity to lend her
voice for an unplugged version of "Galliyan" presenting another talent
of hers to her fandom. Ms. Kapoor's last outing at the box office
was Vishal Bhardwaj
's critically acclaimed Haider
(2014), where she played the role of Arshia, Haider's love interest.
Shraddha received immense praise from her peers and seniors in the
industry for her phenomenal
performance in the film. She is currently gearing up for next release, ABCD 2
co-starring childhood best friend,
and we wish her journey to be as amazing as it is now and more.
thought that Shahid Kapoor
's film career was over given that all his recent films
underperformed at the Box Office.
However, it looks like destiny had other plans for him. Kapoor was
offered Vishal Bharadwaj's Haider
(2014) and the winds have seemed to change direction for him since that
moment. Before the film was released for public viewing, it was screened
at the 19th
Busan International Film Festival and received immense acknowledgment. The film released
worldwide on October 2nd
, 2014 and was flooded with praises from
various sectors of the industry. Kapoor's performance in the film was said to
be one of his finest, worthy of all the nominations he garnered for it. And Haider
did the magic for him when Kapoor took home his first ever Filmfare's
Best Actor Male Award this year. Kapoor is now investing in movies that
have a core strong enough like his last one. He has two films in the
and Udta Punjab
, both said to have the charm that will benefit Kapoor's career.
Making a successful debut in 2007 with Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om
alongside King Khan, Deepika Padukone
won the Filmfare award
for Best Female Debut, a lot of hearts and a superstar predicted future.
Though the journey after that wasn't much of a fairytale unfortunately.
Padukone did a lot of movies, among which Bachna Ae Haseeno
(2008) and Love Aaj Kal
(2009) clicked at the box
office. But from 2009 until 2011, Padukone's films didn't do well at the Box
Office. But 2012 turned out to be another defining moment in Padukone's career
as she flipped her career around by proving her mettle in Homi Adajania
alongside Saif Ali Khan
. After the success of Cocktail
Padukone had four big-budget films slated for release in 2013. Race 2,
followed by Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express
and Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela,
were all commercially
successful, and she established herself as one of the most successful leading
ladies in Bollywood. The long-legged beauty finished the year on a high by winning almost all best actress awards for Goliyon
Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela
, including the Filmfare Best Actor Female in her glory list. Padukone had two releases in 2014 Finding Fanny
which was critically acclaimed and Happy New Year
, which sent the Box Office into a frenzy.
She also did a Tamil film, Kochadaiyaan
with the Tamil Super Star Rajinikanth.
Her upcoming releases include Piku
(2015), Bajirao Mastani
