Nowadays there’s a trend of singles which are mostly recreated versions of old songs. However back in the 90s and early 2000, there were singles that were original and had a great concept in it. While most of the songs featured the singer itself, some of them also had our Bollywood celebs.
So, today let’s look at the list of Bollywood actors who started their career with music videos…
Before making us go Ooh La La with her performances on the big screen, Vidya Balan featured in Palash Sen’s music video Kabhi Aana Tu Meri Gali. While we didn’t get to see Vidya dancing in it, her lively screen presence impressed us a lot.
Shahid Kapoor made his debut with 2003 release Ishq Vishk. His chocolate boy avatar in the film stole every girl’s heart. Before his debut as a lead, Shahid appeared as a background dancer in movies like Dil To Pagal Hai and Taal, but not many know that he featured in Aryans’ single Aankhon Mein. Well, Shahid looked quite cute in the music video.
Falguni Pathak’s music videos in the late 90s and early 2000 were a rage. They used to be chartbusters. In 2000, Pathak came up with the track Meri Chunar Udd Udd Jaye which featured Ayesha Takia. Ayesha was in her teens when she featured in the track and her innocence in the song was loved by everyone.
Divya Khosla Kumar
Many people would know Divya Khosla Kumar as a successful director and wife of T-Series’ head honcho, Bhushan Kumar. But not many would know that she is an actress and starred opposite Akshay Kumar in Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo.
