We have all heard about how Amitabh Bachchan delivered a string of flops films before his first big hit. But that’s not the story with every star. As two fresh star kids, Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty stand on the brink of making their debut with Hero, we decided to take a look at some of the most successful debuts of all times.
Tiger Shroff - Heropanti
Tiger Shroff’s Heropanti may not have smashed any box office records but it did help Tiger smash his way into stardom. What more could you ask for from a debut movie?
Sunny Deol - Betaab
Sunny Deol made a dream debut back in 1983 with his hugely successful film Betaab. It turned out to be the biggest hit of the year and firmly established Sunny Deol as a star.
Farhan Akhtar - Rock On
Farhan Akhtar was already a celebrated director before the release of Rock On. But he successfully managed to transcend the boundary into acting with just this one very beloved movie. Farhan has never looked back.
Ranveer Singh - Band Baaja Baarat
Band Baaja Baarat owed a large part of its success to its young debut actor - Ranveer Singh. His infectious energy and roughish charm won many hearts and the film itself paved the way for a very successful career to come.
Hrithik Roshan - Kaho Na Pyaar Hai
Kaho Na Pyaar Hai is arguably one of the most successful debuts any star has ever enjoyed. It introduced us to the kind of talent Bollywood had only dreamed about. Hrithik Roshan turned out to be a handsome revelation who could dance better than any living soul in the country.
