Bollywood is an ever demanding and unpredictable glam industry. Many try their luck to shine in the Bolly showbiz. While few made it big, few could not despite carrying the essential requirements. Acting skill, beauty, grace, talent are key qualities being an actress of Bollywood.

Although she made several hits in the ’90s for Kaho Naa Pyar Hai, Kya Yehi Pyaar Hai, Humraaz, Aap Mujhe Acche Lagne Lage and other movies, the actress failed to score in the success list of the industry for the long run. She switched into producing film from her own production house Desi Magic.
#3 Dia Mirza: Who couldn’t impress by the beauty of Miss Asia Pacific 2000, Diya Mirza. Diya is one of the dream girls of the 90’s Hindi movies. Her movie Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein is a timeless romantic picture which is also her debut movie. Although RHTDM was a box office hit, Diya Mirza couldn’t hold the success record further. Needless to say, her appearances always set the screen on charm. The actress is more into social work nowadays and helped many cancer patients.

#6 Soha Ali Khan: The Daughter of the legendary actress Sharmila Tagore, Soha Ali khan praised for her acting skills and beauty by many. Rang De Basanti, Tum Mile were two of her remarkable films. Soha also failed to make it big despite being capable of quality skills. The actress has more focused into TV shows now.
#7 Shruti Hassan: The daughter of Kamal Hassan, Shruti Hassan failed to impress the audience of Hindi films. Her debut movie Luck failed to open the success lock of her career in Bollywood industry. She also acted in Welcome Back, Ramaiya Vastavaiya, Rocky Handsome but these productions are refused by the audience for poor quality performance. Though Shruti Hassan is a successful name in Telegu Industry.

Later she appeared for few movies but fail to make a successful impression on those. She signed for the Elite Models India for modeling. She is also the face of Maybelline and brand ambassador of communication technology service Nokia and hair brand TRESmme. In spite of tying up with big brands, the actress could not bag any big role after Cocktail.
#9 Sonal Chauhan: Sonal Chauhan caught the audience’s attention on the movie Jannat. The song ‘Zara Si Dil Mein’ from the Jannat was made her a known face in the industry but failed to make a long-time space in the heart of the viewers.
#10 Nargis Fakhri: The Rockstar fame Nargis Fakhri, highly praises for her performance in the movie in an opposite lead of Ranbir Kapoor. Nargis was also acclaimed for her acting in a political thriller film Madras Café. The American Model made a fascinating impact from her appearances in Bolly movies. Nargis bagged successful comedy films like Housefull 3 and Main Tera Hero but in terms of a successful career, she couldn’t step ahead.
Hit and miss is a part of a career. Despite being a charmer and capable of the needed qualities, it seems luck doesn’t flick always.
