Salman Khan is a force to reckon with! The biggest of actresses want to share screen space with him. He has made the careers of so many people whose names cannot be counted in one day. But when it comes to launching actresses, Bhai has been a tad bit unlucky. His luck has seldom brushed on to the debutantes he has given chances to! Let’s have a look at the actresses who had a great start but fizzled right with their first films:-
1. Bhumika Chawla
The actor made a rollicking debut in the 2003 romantic drama Tere Naam. A naive and gullible small town girl who finally reciprocates to the feelings of a college goon, Radhe, Bhumika won a lot of appreciation for her performance but failed to recreate the same magic in her second film with Salman, Dil Ne Jise Apna Kahaa. She was last seen in M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story.
2. Sneha Ullal
She was launched in Lucky: No Time For Love right after the breakup of Salman and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Sneha’s only claim to fame was her striking resemblance to Rai, but the actor failed to make an impact with her performance. She starred with Sohail Khan as well in the boxing drama, Aryan, but couldn’t pack a punch this time either.
3. Zareen Khan
We really don’t know how Salman finds his leading ladies! After Aishwarya, it was time for a Katrina Kaif lookalike. She made her BIG Bollywood debut in Anil Sharma’s war drama, Veer in 2010. The film didn’t receive the love and appreciation everyone expected. Khan went on to do films like Hate Story 3, Aksar 2 and 1921, and the less said about these films, the better.
4. Daisy Shah
She was in Ganesh Acharya’s dance group and Salman spotted her and cast her in his brother’s directorial, Jai Ho, in 2014. She was reduced to a mere prop and the entire film rested on the leading man’s shoulders. It failed! Her only successful stint in Bollywood till now is the iconic dialogue from her last film, Race 3, and we don’t need to tell you which one!
