11 Divas Whose Careers Never Took Off Despite Debuting With Star Kids

11 Divas Whose Careers Never Took Off Despite Debuting With Star Kids

Whenever a star kid makes his/her screen debut, the hoopla created around that debut reaches the sky, especially in Tollywood (of course in other film industries too). Obviously, all the attention would be on the hero but the industry folks’ eye would be on the heroine. Probably, she might make it to the big league overnight, if the film scores a huge hit. Sadly Tollywood was not fortune enough to witness this so far. Heroines who featured in films of Mega, Nandamuri, Akkineni and Manchu hero’s debut flicks, could never make any impact. No even one! Here’s a list of 11 heroines who weren’t successful despite getting a perfect launch pad opposite star kids.

  1. Neha Sharma

    Actress Neha Sharma had the biggest debut in Telugu with Megapowerstar Ram Charan’s Chirutha. The film was a decent hit at box office. Interestingly Neha dubbed for her role in the movie but her efforts went in vain. Post Chirutha she featured in only one Telugu movie and then she left Tollywood as she was completely short of opportunities.

  2. Aditi Agarwal

    With Gangotri, Aditi Agarwal made her screen debut. The film was veteran director K Raghavendra Rao’s 100th film and Stylish Star Allu Arjun’s debut flick. The movie scored a super hit nevertheless; Aditi could not impress our Telugu filmmakers despite all the high quotient glamour shown in the movie. Later, she did a couple of films but all of them went unnoticed.

  3. Raveena Rajput

    This lady debuted with Young Tiger Jr NTR in Ninnu Choodalani, directed by VN Prathap and produced by Ramoji Rao. The film was a disappointment at box office and eventually Raveena Rajput could not bag any offer from our Tollywood filmmakers. In fact nobody had any clue about this actress.

  4. Akanksha

    Heroine Akanksha made her debut with Kalyan Ram’s debut flick Tholi Choopulone. This film was Ramoji Rao’s 75th film as producer and a good amount of expectations were on the movie as another Nandamuri hero was entering Tollywood. The film fell flat at the box office and Akanksha too had no choices rather than going back home.

  5. Karthika Nair

    Daughter of yesteryear’s actress Radha, Karthika had a perfect launch. Josh was Akkineni Naga Chaitanya’s debut and a film from popular producer Dil Raju’s banner was considered as the best way to start. But the film performed averagely at the box office. Karthika could not cash the golden opportunity. Even now, Karthika is finding it difficult to influence Telugu directors.

  6. Sayyeshaa Saigal

    Akkineni’s youngest lad Akhil’s debut had mammoth expectations. The film was made on a large scale. Heroine Sayyeshaa too had caught the attention of Tollywood. But the film failed miserably at box office. Sayyeshaa’s prospects in Tollywood looked bleak. Post that film, she did not feature in a single movie.

  8. Richa Gangopadhyay, Priya Anand

    These two beauties paired with Rana Daggubati in his debut film Leader. Unlike other heroines, Richa and Priya made their mark in Telugu with a different film and that too it was a Sekhar Kammula’s directorial. The film received a mixed response and these two heroines also got the same reception. It has been a couple of years that Richa and Priya were seen on silver screen.

  9. Saiyami Kher

    Rey was the debut of Supreme hero Sai Dharam Tej and heroine Saiyami Kher. The film had gone through financial troubles and got delayed by nearly two and half years. We know what happens when a film gets delayed, audience lose interest and the rest follows. Probably, Saiyami had a tough start in Telugu and it remained so.

  10. Neetu Chandra, Shilpa Shivanand

    With Manchu Vishnu’s debut movie ‘Vishnu,’ Neetu Chandra and Shilpa Shivanand entered the Telugu film industry. The movie was an average grosser but heroines did not get any offers. Though Neetu made a stunning re-entry into Tollywood with Sekhar Kammula’s Godavari, opportunities never poured in. On the other hand, Shilpa Shivanand just disappeared.
