We watch movies to see how our favourite actors have etched the role they were offered. But at many times we are disappointed as our artistic soul remains discontented seeing their performances. We feel they get the hype much more than what’s required.
Here is a list of celebrities who are considered over-rated. The list includes two so-called non-actors also.
- Katrina Kaif
Although a great dancer, she hasn’t been able to catch any attention regarding her acting skills; people even laugh at her lackluster acting in movies. Still, she is one of the most bankable stars in Bollywood, due to her associations with Bollywood bigwigs.
- Salman Khan
Okay, this may be hard to digest but you cannot count Salman Khan in the league of actors who can “act”. His stardom and mannerism are what catapulted him to be a big star. Not many of us can remember any films where he showed his acting prowess. His blatant remarks is a proof that he is definitely over hyped.
- Sonam Kapoor
No, we aren’t denying that she is one of the most glamorous divas of Bollywood but barring Neerja, she has not been able to show off her great acting skills.
- Shraddha Kapoor
She charmed everyone with her bubbly girl-next-door image in Ek Villain and Aashiqui 2, but with the passage of time, she stereotyped herself in the same kind of roles with the same sullen-faced expression.
- Aishwarya Rai
She is unassumingly the most beautiful woman in the world, but when it comes to her acting, we can count the number of hits she has delivered. Except for Hum Dil De Chuke Sanaam, Devdas, and the recent cameo in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, it’s tough to remember any other path-breaking performances of her.
- Yami Gautam
The Fair and Lovely girl is one of the much-hyped model turned celebrities in Bollywood. Although she has two hits in her kitty- Vicky Donor and Kaabil, but she is not a great actress to be talked off. Moreover, the brand she endorses has won her more flak rather than applauds.
- Sonakshi Sinha
She is a great dancer and has the true desi look but when it comes to movies, she has not made smart choices except Lootera. Moreover, her recent controversy regarding her performance at Justin Bieber’s Purpose Tour embroiled her in a controversy with singers Kailash Kher and Sona Mahapatra.
- Karan Johar
He is the most over hyped celebrity of the recent times. His association with Shahrukh Khan and other actors gave him the much-needed footage. He is known to promote star kids in his film for which Kangana Ranaut named him “the flag bearer of nepotism in Bollywood”.
- Kapil Sharma
He is the perfect example of a king turned pauper. The winner of a laughter show launched his own show “The Comedy Nights with Kapil” and “The Kapil Sharma Show”. Due to his arrogant attitude and suddenly hyped confidence, he entered into altercations with his fellow comedians on his shows. The reputation he once earned, suddenly went kaput.
- Bipasha Basu
When she entered the modelling world, she grabbed attention for her dusky looks and oomph factor. Everyone enjoyed her on-screen chemistry with her ex-boyfriend John Abraham, but that was it. Bipasha cannot be remembered for delivering any stellar performances on the big screen apart from Doom 2 and Raaz. Her recent “monkey” marriage with Karan Singh Grover gave her the hype she missed.
