Malaika Arora Khan - Amrita Arora: Not So Leggy
no denying she's still here. But may we ask, what exactly is she doing?
Once-popular-VJ Amrita Arora has not managed to create the slightest
ripple with her acting skills. She has done smaller films where her
characters are hard to recall.
She is sister of Malaika Arora Khan, who has become a sex symbol of sorts for Bollywood. Malaika is a popular host and dancer.
Amrita could not make her mark as an actress, the latest is that
Malaika is in fact thinking of taking a shot at it. Amrita is of course
still trying. But the media and the public are only always curious
about her celebrity boyfriends including Upen Patel and English
cricketer Usman Afzaal.
Amisha - Ashmit Patel: Come Undone
Amisha Patel started off with a great film. Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai
was an ideal beginning for someone who doesn't belong to a Bollywood
family. While she has disappointed fans with the films she did after
that, she is still reckoned as one of the better actresses of Bollywood.
Younger brother Ashmit Patel has been a bigger disaster. He might have got some amount of popularity with films like Murder
but his only real claim to fame was an MMS scandal with Riya Sen. One
hasn't seen much of the sibling since. We can only wait for the wheels
of fortune to turn on him.
Kajol - Tanisha: Come, Come, Coming...
a mother like Tanuja and a brilliant actress sister like Kajol, Tanisha
seemed to be a promising young star. She gave great interviews before
her launch and seemed to follow in her sister's opinionated footsteps.
Unfortunately, her films, including Sssshhh
and Neal n Nikki
didn't do much for her career. Her acting is nothing much to speak
about and she is definitely out of the audience's mind. Luckily for
her, being Kajol's sister has helped. Tanisha has two releases lined up
in 2008 so let's hope this time things work out for this little sister.
Shilpa - Shamita Shetty: Do We See Anything Here?
Shilpa started with a bang, fizzled a bit and then really soared with Big Brother
Shamita however, seems to be stuck on item numbers. While her debut with Mohabbatein
seemed promising, great offers didn't come her way. Even her film Fareb
with sister Shilpa didn't do much for her career. Shamita's still
struggling to get her focus right. But looks like it'll take a lot for
her to mend her career now.
Anil - Sanjay Kapoor: It's a Wondrous Flop
is no parallel to Anil Kapoor in the industry. He has been doing great
roles when actors of his era have already receded into oblivion.
brother Sanjay? Well, his is an another story. When the star arrived,
the biggest female names in Bollywood agreed to work with him. He began
his career with Tabu in Prem
and did a film titled Raja
opposite Madhuri Dixit Nene. While Prem
collapsed at the BO, Raja
was a reasonable hit. But all credit went to Madhuri. He consistently
delivered flops after that but didn't leave the arena without trying
enough. He tried to rise many a times, but the Phoenix doesn't seem to
be in his favour.
Salman - Arbaaz & Sohail Khan: Hello Brothers!
are very famous 'brothers' of the utterly famous Salman Khan.
Unfortunately - not so famous for their acting. We don't know when
actor Arbaaz came and went by. He did reasonably good roles in Pyar Kiya to Darna Kya
and Hello Brother
. But luck didn't seem to favour him so much. He has only been seen
making some special appearances since and is better known as sexy
Malaika's husband. Same with Sohail Khan. Sohail started his career as
producer and director with the film Auzaar
. But his debut as an actor in Maine Dil Tujhko Diya
didn't go down well with the audience. He was also seen in films like Fight Club
and Krishna Cottage
. But with no hits to his credit he makes for a flop sibling brother along side Arbaaz.
Aamir - Faisal Khan: Legal Affairs
Faisal is a flop sibling brother of the impeccable Aamir Khan. He was last seen in the movie Mela
with brother Aamir. Nothing of him was seen after that till a legal squabble between the two made mainstream headlines.
and his father Tahir Hussain were caught in a custody battle over an
allegedly unstable Faisal that went in favour of the father. The story
seemed over then. But Faisal recently made an appearance at a music
release and it is heard he went around telling the media that he has
plans to come back to films. Rest assured, it's not going to be a close
watch till then.
Dimple - Simple: In a Lost World
|Aditi - Arzoo Govitrikar: Damp Squib
engineer by profession, Arzoo Govitrikar is the younger sister of
pretty lass Aditi Govitrikar. Aditi was a hot on the ramp but her
movies went kaput.
Sister Arzoo also tried to make inroads into the
Bollywood scene but her career has been rather dismal. One doesn't
remember much of her except as the nasty daughter in law in Baghban . Arzoo and Aditi are both pretty girls. Acting seems to have failed them both miserably though.
Simple Kapadia debuted in Anurodh
opposite Rajesh Khanna. But she never got famous like her popular elder sister Dimple. She did a sensual number in Lootmaar
in early 1980s and did reasonable roles in films like Shaaka
and Jeevan Dhara
fate had other plans. While sister Dimple went on to do greater films
and very superior roles, Simple turned costume designer. This was yet
another sibling who acting career didn't receive much of a take off.
Nagma - Jyothika: Who?
If you can't recall, she is the girl who acted in Priyadarshan's Doli Sajake Rakhna
. Jyothika is Nagma's little sister. Nagma also had a short stint in Hindi films but did make her mark with films like Baaghi
alongside Salman Khan.
For Jyothika, her debut film Doli Sajake Rakhna
was her first and last film in Bollywood. Luckily for her, she was
noticed by Tamil and Telugu filmmakers and her releases created quite a
stir in the South. Now of course, she is happily married and nursing
motherhood. We wish her well.
