James Byron Dean has said, “Being a good actor isn’t easy.” Looking at a few actors, on screen, we are often forced to think like why the hell they are actors! And perhaps, James Dean was absolutely right.
Some actors are natural and some learn to act, but somewhere there exists an unfortunate list of actors who can’t act to save their lives. Our eyes literally bled and are still bleeding watching them act clumsily on our TV screens.
Here are a few actors who the Indian health authorities (if there exists one) should convince into discontinuing their so-called acting careers.
1- Jackky Bhagnani
Vashu Bhagnani as many of you would know is a well known producer who has several great films to his credit. So, of course when his son grows up, he launches him with fanfare in one of his own films. The film tanks. He makes another film for his son. That film also tanks. I guess how can you tell a father to not care for his son. But at some point you have to accept the bitter truth that your son can’t succeed as an actor so let’s try something else.
2- Esha Deol
Whoever said that having parents like Dharmendra and Hema Malini would make Esha a bundle of acting talent couldn’t have been further from the truth. With zero screen presence and a palpable sense of discomfort in front of the camera, Esha — despite the ample skin show in Dhoom — fizzled out after a few films.
3- Tusshar Kapoor
Despite being from a strong Bollywood family, he could never carve a niche for himself, in the industry. Although he has tried all the genres, nothing has suited him well. He lacks that x-factor, in him.
4- Uday Chopra
Watching him acting, on-screen, you feel like banning him from Bollywood. Although he registered successes on his first two films, Mohabbatein (2000) and Mere Yaar Ki Shadi Hai (2002) – thanks to the presence of other leading actors, in both the films – his overacting and dead expression in Dhoom series torture you like hell. Apart from these, none of his films, could work for the actor.
5- Riya Sen
Unlike her family Riya was not able to find her place in the B-Town. Riya also acted in telugu and tamil movies, but that also could not help her set a mark in the industry. She tried everything from cameos to item numbers, but nothing could work out for her.
6- Aarya Babbar
Struggling to become an actor while struggling with his acting skills. Do you understand it? We don’t! :/
7- Ameesha Patel
Ameesha Patel had a dream debut. And then, everything went downhill from there. I don’t think I have ever seen someone overact as much as she did in ‘Aap Mujhe Acche Lagne Lage’. Her career should have ended after that film. But because of the massive success of ‘Kaho Na Pyaar Hai’ and ‘Gadar’, she continued getting projects.
8- Sohail Khan
Tried playing the angry young man, but didn’t work. We are happy! Sohail Khan’s acting skills are so bad that he makes his superstar brother Salman Khan look like a Shakespearean stage actor. Sohail is another one who should be banned from Bollywood!
