Our actors in Bollywood..they are so loved, no? But have you ever thought about how they landed here in the first place? Was it fate? Was it destiny? Or was it sheer luck?
Well, some have godfathers or mama or chacha whereas some make it big on their own or what we call as ‘hardwork’! And before that comes audition!
Yes, regardless of whether you are related to someone in the industry or not, sometimes you’ve just got to give auditions even if your father has contacts for you. Just like our dear Alia Bhatt gave one for Student Of The Year. Well, she is not the only one; we have many! And all the tapes are totally worth a watch!
Here we go!
1. Alia Bhatt
Officially posted by Dharma Productions last year, this compilation of Alia’s auditions is absolutely awesome! She looks cute, quirky and spontaneous and really shows us how far she’s come in terms of her acting skills.
2. Shah Rukh Khan
A star so big, nobody would’ve expected him to be so down to earth and audition with the co-stars of his film for Swades! The film was, is and always will be a masterpiece, thanks to SRK..see how he rocked it in the audition too? Applauses!
Born Rajiv Bhatia and a martial arts man, this rockstar came into the film industry with no godfather at all. Banking on modeling assignments, he eventually made it big in Bollywood! Here’s his first screen test ever!
4. Omi Vaidya
This undoubtedly is the best video on this list. This is pure luck. The man didn’t really fake it, he already had the accent and we absolutely love it! Funny as hell, this one’s a must watch!
5. Karan Wahi
Our most loved Remix boy who started out with Ranveer Sisodia, was a born star in the TV world. The band boy made it big on the silver screen with that role that also won him a lot of fan following from girls and the tag of TV’s favourite chocolate boy! Before his Bollywood debut in Daawat-E-Ishq alongside Aditya Roy Kapur, he auditioned for the same role that Aditya got eventually.
6. Gautam Gulati
Television’s hottie and the winner of Bigg Boss 8, he sure knows how to act. He too auditioned for the same role of Rahul Jaykar from Aashiqui 2! Well, looks like nobody seemed to bag it except Aditya Roy Kapur!
7. Manjot Singh
Did you know that this young boy from Delhi has already won the Filmfare Critics Award for the Best Actor for his debut film Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! (working alongside the very handsome Abhay Deol) and yet, two years later he gave an audition for his second film, Udaan! Here, watch it!
