Without acting skills, nobody could get appreciation from audiences. But if someone loves acting he/she should take a risk. There are some Bollywood Singers who also took chance in acting, but failed. So let’s get to know the names of some famous Bollywood singers who failed as an actor.
Himesh Reshammiya- Bollywood Singers Who Failed As Actor
Firstly I will talk about a famous Bollywood playback singer Himesh Reshammiya. I loved him as a singer. His all songs were famous in the 90s. But I get disappointed when I saw him in movies.
He took several chance in acting but in most of them he failed.
His movies are ‘Aap Ka Surroor’, ‘Tera Surroor’, ‘Karz’, ‘The Xpose’, ‘Khiladi 786’ Happy Hardy and Heer, damadam, Radio and many more. All of them were terribly flopped.
Among all these, I can’t wholly blame him for ‘Khiladi 786’ because he was in a supporting role.
Himesh Reshammiya is a well-known Bollywood singer but I think the audience loves to listen to his songs instead of watching him on screen.
Next is Aditya Narayan who is the son of legendary playback singer Udit Narayan. Aditya is a good singer with a lovely voice but unfortunately, he doesn’t achieve something very big name or fame in the industry.
May be you are unaware about his movie career in Bollywood. So, Let me inform you about this.
His movie as lead actor was a Horror film Shaapit’. And as a child actor he did films i;e ‘Jab Pyar Kisise hota Hain’, Akele Hum Akele Tum’.
Ignoring his acting career he is not a good name in singing. But nowadays he is doing anchoring in singing reality shows in which he is doing quite well.
Not like other singers of Bollywood, Ali Zafar has made some popularity in the industry as an actor. Maybe, you have seen him in many scenes of Bollywood movies.
He doesn’t act more in the lead characters of any movie. In most of his movies, he played cameo or side roles.
Names of his popular movies are ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’, ‘Kill Dill’, ‘Chashme Baddoor’, ‘Hey Bro’, ‘Luv Ka The End’ and so on. The super hit movie in which he had a short time appearance was ‘Dear Zindagi.
But the main reason he couldn’t get famous in Bollywood because of the ban of Pakistani artists.
Sonu nigam- Bollywood Singers Who Failed As Actor
I think you don’t know about Sonu Nigam’s acted movies. We all know that he acted in some video songs.
And the movies in which he acted were ‘Taqdeer’, ‘Hum Se Hai Zamana’, ‘Betaab’, ‘Kaamchor’, ‘Pyaara Dushman’, ‘Love In Nepal’, ‘Kash Aap Hamare Hote’, ‘Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani’.
None of his movies was a hit in Bollywood. I think our Master of Melody has not so good acting skills as his singing.
Our Rap King honey Singh also took chance as an actor. But unfortunately, the audience didn’t love him in his movies as his songs.
His movies are ‘Zorawar’ and ‘‘The Xpose’. After these movies he didn’t take any risk about trying acting. Although he has guest appearance in his songs which are used in movies.
Wait! Are you shocked with this name on the list?. I know you didn’t expect this name here. But Yes! Shaan also tried in acting career’.
His movie names are ‘Balwinder Singh Famous Ho Gaya’, ‘Munna Michael’ etc. and two Bengali films ‘Amar Bodyguard’, ‘Angti Rohosso’. He also had guest appearance in movie ‘Secret Superstar’.
Shaan is a popular playback singer. He sung in many languages like Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Telegu, Tamil, Gujarati and many more. He also hosted and appeared as judge in so many singing reality shows.
The one more fun fact is Shaan also tried in a dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa.
Shaan’s songs touched our hearts but his acting and dancing couldn’t.
India’s most popular reality singing show Indian Idol winner Abhijeet Sawant is also one of them who tried acting. His movie name was ‘Lottery’ which is not a hit at all.
The film was a mystery drama directed by Hemant Prabhu. Along with this, Abhijeet also appeared on T.V as an anchor.
Mika Singh- Bollywood Singers who terribly failed as actor
In a particular time interval, lots of party songs of Bollywood movies were released in Mika Singh’s voice which are super hit till now. So, this popular hit party song creator, Mika Singh also tried in movies.
His movies are ‘Mitti’, ‘Balwinder Singh Famous Ho Gaya’, ‘Loot’.
Mika Singh played as judge in multiple reality shows and released many solo music albums as well.
So this was the list which may shocked you about your favorite singer.
