Bollywood is a world full of glamour and everyone is mesmerized by its charm. People dream of making it big in Bollywood. However, some people have got immense name and fame while many people were left heartbroken for not achieving success. Indian Cinema has many such actors who went to make it big in this industry in spite of being from a non-filmy background. Here are few Bollywood struggle stories of celebrities to be listed which are considered the superstars of Bollywood.

Akshay Kumar

Akshay Kumar’s original name is Rajiv Bhatia. He was born in Amritsar in a Punjabi family. Rajiv completed his schooling in Delhi and shifted to Mumbai for higher studies. He was very fond of martial arts and decided to quit his studies and travelled Bangkok for learning martial arts. It was not easy to survive without money and hence he had to take up odd jobs to earn his living. He worked as a peon in Calcutta for a year then as a salesman in Dhaka for about six months. His next destination was Delhi, where he worked as a jewelry trader.

After working in various cities and gather some proper finances he started teaching martial arts to children in Mumbai. Rajiv didn’t know his life is going to change soon. It was one of his students who advised him to opt for modeling. He got his portfolio ready and started earning well. Rajiv was completely in love with this glamour world and that is how Bollywood got the one and only Khiladi Kumar, Akshay Kumar. A missed flight changed Akshay life. Since that period there was no reason for Akshay to look backward. I don’t need to mention anything further since rest is the history. Today, Akshay Kumar is among the most famous personalities of Bollywood. He is married to late actor Rajesh Khanna’s daughter, Twinkle Khanna. The couple is blessed with two kids, Aarav and Nitara.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Whenever we think about an actor, the first thing that comes to our mind about him will be, about his looks, his family background and how famous he is in the world of Bollywood. We all have that notion that all actors and actresses are or should be beautiful or handsome, must be belonging to a rich and filmy background. We have one such actor in our industry who has broken this notion. He is none other than Nawazuddin Siddiqui. From rags to riches that is what can describe this actor. Being from a non filmy background it was very difficult for Nawaz to enter the world of Bollywood. But his persistence and hardworking proved fruitful and now he is one of the most respected actors of Bollywood.

Nawaz was born in a family of farmers in the village of Budhana in Uttar Pradesh. It won’t be wrong saying that Nawaz’s struggle story was a filmy one. He completed his education even during his tough times. He attained a degree in science from Haridwar and started working as a chemist and soon shifted to the Capital. He had a craze of watching C- grade films. He got an opportunity to learn theatre acting but due to financial issues he learnt it himself by watching plays. After taking a taking in acting he moved to the city of dreams, Mumbai and bagged his first role in the movie Sarfarosh. The role was just of 61 seconds. After this role, Nawaz had to struggle a lot for more work. One fine day, director Anurag Kashyap spotted him and offered him a meaty role in Black Friday. After this movie,

Nawaz went to conquer the world of Bollywood with his versatility in acting. He went on giving several hits like Gangs of Wasseypur, Badlapur, Talash, Bajrani Bhaijaan etc. Nawazuddin Siddiqui being added to the list of Bollywood actors, we have got one more actor who can make the Indian cinema rule the world cinema.

Shah Rukh Khan

Abdul Rehman was born on 2nd November in a Muslim family in New Delhi. His father soon changed is named to Shah Rukh which denotes ‘the face of the king. Shah Rukh was excellent in studies as well as other sports activities until one day he found his love for acting. He left his masters to pursue theatre. Facing lots of family problems during this period he decided to come to Mumbai to accomplish his dream of being a Bollywood actor. He has spent days sleeping on the roads and beaches for many days. Shah Rukh managed to bag few roles for Television serials like Dil Dariya, Fauji and Circus.

He bagged his first role on big screen as a parallel lead in the movie Deewana being paid a very small amount. Shah Rukh won his first Film Fare Debut of the year award for this movie. Shah Rukh’s career reached at its peak when he show cased his grey shades in movies like Darr and Baazigar. Both these movies were blockbusters. But Shah Rukh got prominent fame in Bollywood when he started working with big banners like Yash Raj and Dharma Productions.

He rose to fame with movies like Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge and Kuch Kuch Hota Hain. After giving a couple of hits, Shah Rukh Khan has been ruling Bollywood.
