Bollywood Singers who badly failed as actors

Sonu Nigam

The versatile singer Sonu Nigam clearly made his impact since his arrival, as one of the best Indian playback singers the industry has ever produced. The 42-year-old singer has provided some magical tracks to the listeners throughout his journey. However, when it comes to acting, Nigam could not repeat the impact.

Nigam gave acting a try with the performance for the film ‘Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani' in the year 2002, followed by other flops- ‘Kaash Aap Hamare Hote’ in 2003 and ‘Love in Nepal’ in 2004.

The singer, although, did not try acting again, and continues to mesmerise the fans with his voice instead.

Lucky Ali

Being actor-comedian Mehmood’s son, Lucky Ali was able to seize roles in Bollywood. Ali acted in few films during the 1970s and 1980s, along with some other Indian television series. Ali seized crucial role in the 2002 film 'Kaante' and a lead role in the movie ‘Sur-The Melody of Life’.
Lucky Ali surely knows how to impress all with his melodic vocals and stage performances. However, unfortunately for the 57-year-old, the same cannot be said about his acting as the singer’s career in movies was short-lived.

Yo Yo Honey Singh

The Indian rapper who gave music a new direction with his catchy rap also tried acting in Bollywood. Although the Indian singer showcased his acting skills in many Punjabi films, but Singh failed to deliver with his Bollywood debut, ‘The Xpose’ in 2014. Looking towards Singh’s fan following, he should wholly pay attention to his singing skills.

Aditya Narayan

Aditya Narayan followed his father's footsteps and pursued the passion for singing. Narayan gave many hits in Bollywood as well as in his own solo albums. Nevertheless, he majorly failed in his acting career. As a child actor, Aditya became popular however his Bollywood debut film ‘Shaapit’ (2010) might have ended the young singer's career in acting. 

Palash Sen

The lead singer of the band 'Euphoria' Palash Sen does not require any introduction for his singing. People fondly remember Sen for his vocal performances and the compositions of hits like 'Maeri' and 'Ab Na Jaa'. Things did not go as planned for the Lucknow-born singer when he ventured into acting. 

Sen started with the film ‘Filhaal’ in 2002 and went unnoticed. The singer-actor tried again in the 2015 film, ‘Aisa Yeh Jahaan’ which did not manage to impress the critics and fans either. .
