Published

on

As the year 2018 comes to a close, it is only fitting to take a look at all the great movies and the amazing performances delivered by Bollywood’s actors and actresses during the last year. While the movies were brilliant in every way, what stood out the most were the women who ruled the roost in Bollywood in 2018. Check out the list of the top five Bollywood actresses of 2018 here!

1. Alia Bhatt 

When Alia Bhatt made her debut with Karan Johar’s Student of The Year, little did we know the Indian cinema was going to get a new face and a brand new actress with talent to the boot. While this young starlet coming into her own with movies like Highway, Dear Zindagi and 2 States, 2018 saw Alia bloom into a bright new flower with Raazi! Without too much drama and the right amount of attention to detail to the character, everything about Alia’s performance in Raazi was extremely captivating! Definitely one of the finest performances by this lady to date!

2. Deepika Padukone 

While Padmaavat was an amazingly well made movie, Deepika Padukone’s acting was brilliant. Playing the role of Rani Padmavati, a queen who goes above and beyond to protect her husband’s and her honour, Deepika Padukone was all grace and perfection. Not many can do justice to a role filled with such intensity and still make a mark on their own. Definitely worth the wait, Deepika Padukone’s acting in this movie was praised for months after the film released.

3. Taapsee Pannu 

The year 2018 was Taapsee Pannu’s year. From Mulk to Manmarziyaan, every movie this particular actress was a part of did really, really well! From playing a Hindu lawyer fighting for a Muslim in Mulk, to playing a girl who is coming into her own and finding herself through love in Manmarziyaan, every movie Taapsee was in, showed how amazing an actress she is!

4. Neena Gupta 

Although the men in Badhaai Ho had the most lines, Neena Gupta played her character to perfection. While she still played the demure housewife struggling with the idea of having a baby at an old age, Neena Gupta played every role so well, her acting was a treat to watch!

5. Anushka Sharma 

Last but not the least, Anushka Sharma surprised everyone by moving away from the normal roles she has played so far. Playing the role of a victim of abuse in an otherwise mediocre movie which was Pari, Anushka Sharma stood strong purely through her acting skills. Definitely one of Anushka’s finer performances to date!

Sushant Singh Rajput’s Birthday – From An Engineer To An Actor

Published

Sushant Singh Rajput’s Birthday - From An Engineer To An Actor, Happy Birthday Sushant Singh Rajput, Lesse Known Facts about Sushant Singh Rajput, Mango Bollywood, actor Sushant Singh Rajput Bollywood Journey, Sushant Singh Rajput Success Story, Bollywood Hero Sushant Singh Rajput Best Movies,

Sushant Singh Rajput, an actor who grew to fame with the show Pavitra Rishta, has quite an inspiring story to tell. As the actor celebrates his birthday today, here’s taking a look at his journey from being a student of engineering to becoming one of the most sought after actors in the world of Bollywood!

From engineering to theater

The youngest son of a government official, Sushant Singh Rajput never aimed to become an actor. With an eye for the sciences and a passion to achieve something impossible, the actor wanted to become an engineer. However, Sushant also had the passion for dancing and while working on getting his engineering degree, he joined Shiamak Davar’s institute of dance!

Dancing gave Sushant a new lease of life and halfway through his degree, he decided to take a leap of faith by leaving the educational path of life for acting! In fact, in a recent interview, Sushant even said, unless Shiamak Davar hadn’t pushed him to do theater, he would never have thought of moving from Delhi to Mumbai to pursue his dreams. To improve his acting skills, Sushant even joined Barry John’s theater classes, a choice which gave him the confidence of getting better at his craft!

The initial days of acting

Acting gave Sushant Singh Rajput the freedom of hiding behind a character on the stage. Working through a character helped him break through his fear of speaking in front of a large audience and helped him accept that it was truly liberating to do theater! Just like any struggling actor, Sushant Singh Rajput was desperately waiting for his big filmy break. In fact, he used to push through the throngs and played the role of extras in more than one film just so he could get recognized!

While on the sets of one of his plays, Sushant got discovered by the casting team of Balaji Telefilms. The team auditioned him and roped him in for Pavitra Rishta. The moment Sushant entered the world of television as Manav Deshmukh in Pavitra Rishta, there was no turning back for him.

The big break in Bollywood

While Pavitra Rishta may have been Sushant’s ticket to the Bollywood world, it was his role as a crazed cricket fan in Kai Po Che which made everyone sit up and take notice. Kai Po Che gave Sushant a much needed break in Bollywood and with one brilliant performance after another, there was absolutely no looking back for the actor. What sealed his fate in Bollywood was perhaps the amazing performance he gave by playing the role of M.S. Dhoni in Neeraj Pandey’s biopic based on the life of M.S. Dhoni (M.S Dhoni: The Untold Story.) This biopic was appreciated by not just the audience, but the critics as well.

Sushant Singh Rajput has been part of a wide array of films and is one of the few actors to never be typecast into one single kind of role. While he played the role of a porter in Kedarnath, he will play the role of a dacoit in Sonchiriya (scheduled to release on the 8th of February this year.)

With no connections at all in the world of Bollywood, Sushant’s journey to the top is one filled with struggles and a dream to make his passion come true. Here’s wishing the extremely talented (and good looking actor,) a very happy birthday and a life filled with more amazing performances down the road!

Bollywood Stars Who Disappeared From The Spotlight

Published

Bollywood Stars Who Disappeared From The Spotlight, Famous Stars Who Completely Disappeared, Actors Who Disappeared After Hit Movies, Bollywood popular actresses who went missing, Top Stars of Indian Cinema, Bollywood Actresses Latet News, Mango Bollywood

The world of Bollywood is a strange one. There are celebrities who rise to fame and stay on top and then there are others who fail despite tasting success. While at one point, they were adored and fawned over, these very stars are now forgotten and have disappeared from the spotlight. Remember Laila Khan? Debuting opposite Rakesh Khanna with Wafa in the year 2008, the actress disappeared from Mumbai shortly after the miserable failure of her grand debut. What makes matters worse, shortly after Laila moved from Mumbai, she was found dead. Her story is just one of the many among those whose lives were either cut short or who disappeared without a trace of any sorts. Check out the list here!

1. Parveen Babi

Known for her amazing performances in not one, but a host of films, Parveen Babi was perhaps one of the most famous actresses of her time. From breaking all conventional barriers by sporting bikinis, to featuring on the cover of the Time magazines, Parveen Babi was always a class act. However, despite all the success surrounding her life, she went off the radar of the film industry in the mid eighties. For a little over a decade, no one knew where she was and when she eventually returned in the year 1989, she was a whole new person. Suffering from schizophrenia, Parveen Babi was convinced everyone she knew was out to get her. Ostracising herself, Babi died a lonely death in her apartment in the year 2005.

2. Raj Kiran

A favourite of the mid range Bollywood directors, Raj Kiran had quite a few successful films (Kagaz Ki Nao, Hip Hip Hurray and Arth) to his name. Despite never making it to the big leagues, Raj Kiran was considered to be quite a popular actor during the ’80s. However, despite being at the peak of his career, one of the major things which went against him was his addiction to alcohol. After a point, Raj’s obsession with alcohol was so high, he got into regular brawls and his reputation started getting affected. Producers and directors stopped wanting to do films with him. He disappeared so quickly, the rumour mill was even saying the actor passed away! There was absolutely no news of him till almost 2011! It was only after Rishi Kapoor found him at an asylum did people stop believing the worst.

3. Bharat Bhushan

One of Bollywood’s biggest stars during the 1940s, Bharat Bhushan had a lot going for him. Known for being a part of several mythological films, Bharat Bhushan rose to fame with Baiju Bawra in the year 1952. Ruling the industry for almost 30 years, Bhushan was known for giving some truly brilliant performances in his career. Unfortunately, one of the main things which went against him was the affair he had with Meena Kumari, a move which almost destroyed not just his name, but his career as well. Slowly fading from the industry, the actor started losing out on offers and as a result, the money also stopped coming. Not known for being a saver, Bharat Bhushan lost all his savings and during the last few days of his life, worked as a watchman at a film studio. The actor breathed his last in the year 1992.

4. Mamta Kulkarni

During the 1990s, Mamta Kulkarni was always in the headlines. From starring topless on the cover of a magazine, to making a sensational debut (Tirangaa in 1993,) Mamta was all over the newspapers for everything she did or said. Playing several major roles opposite stars like Akshay Kumar, Govinda, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Anil Kapoor, Mamta Kulkarni was the talk of the town till she accused Rajkumar Santoshi, the director of China Gate, for molesting her. In return, Rajkumar Santoshi accused Vivek Goswami (Mamta’s rumoured boyfriend) of threatening his life. Soon after, Mamta disappeared from the Bollywood scene. The last thing heard about her was, she was living in Dubai with Goswami!

5. Priya Gill

Priya Gill had a pretty successful career during her early days in Bollywood. With films like Tere Mere Sapne and Sirf Tum, the actress had a lot going for her. However, without really being too particular about the kind of films she did, Priya’s fame started plummeting. Amongst some of the films which majorly failed, movies like Bade Dilwale and Josh, did particularly horribly. With no hopes of ever making her presence in the industry felt again, the actress disappeared from the world of Bollywood altogether!

6. Anu Aggarwal

Anu Aggarwal’s story is perhaps one of the most tragic stories when it comes to celebrities who disappeared from the world of Bollywood. Anu Aggarwal was best known for her performance in Mahesh Bhatt’s Aashiqui. Almost reaching the category of brilliant actresses, Aggarwal’s rise to fame was cut short when the actress met with a horrific road accident. She slipped into a coma for a month and true to her Bollywood life, she made a comeback with a tell all book about what happened to her. Unfortunately, Aggarwal doesn’t do any movies now.

Bollywood has seen a lot of people come in and go from the industry without leaving a mark with their work. However, the ones who left, despite making an impact with their movies, are the ones which make you wonder where they went. If you think we missed mentioning any other celebrities who disappeared like this, comment and let us know!

Underrated Bollywood Movies From The Past

Published

Underrated Bollywood Movies From The Past,Underrated Bollywood Movies,Mango Bollywood,Must Watch Bollywood Movies of all Time,Best Bollywood Movies,6 Must Watch Bollywood Movies,6 Best Movies in Bollywood,Top 6 Bollywood Movies of all time,Superhit Bollywood Movies From Past

Be it big ticket Bollywood movies which become superhits or underrated movies which become instant failures, the world of Bollywood is a coin with two sides. While the ones with major star casts and drama are always remembered, it is always the smaller fish in the fry which are often forgotten. On a Friday like today, here’s taking a look at some of the best movies in Bollywood which are underrated!

1. Masaan

Released in the year 2015, Masaan follows two people dealing with different forms of death and eventually end up meeting. Richa Chadha’s character mourns the death of her boyfriend, while Vicky Kaushal’s character is part of a family who burns funeral pyres for a living. While both the stories are intense on their own, they bring together a beautiful story when they finally meet. A beautiful story which essentially brings to life the fact that misery loves company, Masaan was sorely underrated when it released.

2. Ankhon Dekhi

Directed by Rajat Kapoor and released in the year 2013, Ankhon Dekhi tells the story of a man who once has an “ah ha” moment and decides he will only believe that which he sees with his own eyes. Following the story of the patriarch of a middle class Delhi family, the movie talks about how even if you have lived life a certain way, there are certain moments when you should change the way you see the world. Ankhon Dekhi lacks the drama and intensity of a blockbuster, but is definitely a film for the ages.

3. Stanley Ka Dabba

Stanley Ka Dabba, a movie which will move even the Grinch of Christmas to tears, brings to life the heart wrenching story of a boy who yearns to eat lunch with his classmates. While on the one hand, the film brings to life the story of not just Stanley, Stanley Ka Dabba also talks of the mean principal who doesn’t let children enter the school unless they bring their own lunch boxes. Drawing parallels from two people virtually after the same thing, this particular Amol Gupte directorial saves the suspense to the very end!

4. Titli

Released in 2015, Titli tells the story of how two people are brought together in a weird combination of fate and who work together to change the course of their life. In a weird twist of sorts, Titli, the youngest member of a mafia family, is married off against his wish. However, as luck would have it, his wife, Neelu, is just as adamant as him to escape this lifestyle and together, the two work to create a story of their own! A beautiful tale of finding love through all adversity, Titli tells an inspiring story and unfortunately, not enough credit went its way.

5. Shaitan

An Anurag Kashyap directorial, Shaitan talks about what happens when you are rich and have too much time on your hands. Quite like Anurag Kashyap’s other films, this particular movie is also dark, gritty, chaotic and extremely realistic. Perhaps one of the reasons this movie did not get the recognition it deserves is because of how casually the whole concept of violence was portrayed! However, what works for Shaitan is, it tells a realistic story and is very to the point!

6. Margarita With A Straw

Bringing to life the story of a bisexual woman (played by Kalki Koechlin,) Margarita With A Straw talks about how society finally accepts love in all forms. A coming of age movie, the film’s story works because the protagonist rediscovers who she is as a person! Despite being so well, one of the things which work against this particular movie is, it has way too many elements in it, making it hard to focus on one particular point!

7. Dasvidaniya

A Shashant Shah directorial, Dasvidaniya answers a simple question: what would you do if you had only a few days left to live? With Vinay Pathak playing the role of a man with only 3 months to live, the movie talks about how he comes to term with the hand life dealt him. Making a list of everything he wants to do before he dies, Vinay Pathak plays the role to perfection. While the story may was told really well, what didn’t work for the film was the fact the story didn’t come with a neatly packaged perfect ending.

While not all films need to be told or made a certain way, these films proved, even with no mass produced drama, a good story always works. What’s your favourite underrated movie? Comment and let us know!
