While there are very few people in Bollywood who act well, some of them are so bad it makes you wonder whether life is downright unfair (to us). Here are 10 people who should never have been allowed to appear in front of the camera:

Upen Patel


While this model might be one good-looking man, he couldn’t act to save his life. In fact, his abs are probably capable of contriving more expressions than his face!

Himesh Reshammiya

Himesh-ReshamiyaNot happy torturing us with his nasal shriek, the composer-turned-singer decided to act and gave us classics like Aap Kaa Surroor, Karzzzz, Kajraare, Radio and Damadamm, movies in which he showed ample hairy cleavage and the same deadpan expression.

Arbaaz Khan

Arbaaz Khan

Arbaaz Khan’s acting skills are so bad that he makes his superstar brother Salman Khan look like a Shakespearean stage actor. Arbaaz is another one who should be banned from Bollywood! The same could be said about the other sibling Sohail Khan as well!

Uday Chopra

Uday ChopraHaving enthralled us with ‘brilliant’ performances in Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai and Neal ‘n’ Nikki, he made us question God’s existence when we saw him with a bikini-clad Nargis Fakhri in real life. Another scion who should never have been allowed to act.

Bobby Deol

Bobby-DeolPoor Bobby, with talented family members like papa Dharmendra and bro Sunny Deol, he was always going to find it hard to live up to the family name. And he did try to – again, again and again – but to no avail. A sure case if at first you don’t succeed, please stop trying.

Sachiin Joshi

sachin-joshiHe was recently seen in Jackpot with former adult star Sunny Leone and we wondered why. He neither has the looks, charisma or the acting chops. Even doing porn films must have been better for Sunny than acting with the likes of Sachiin!

Zayed Khan

Zayed KhanHrithik Roshan’s ex-brother-in-law is another prime example of filmi families misusing their power. He did some weird movies over the years (except Main Hoon Na) and thankfully got the audience’s message and disappeared.

Kamal R Khan

Kamal-R-KhanThis bizarre Khan did a forgettable movie called Deshdrohi, which looked to cash in on the attacks on North Indians in Mumbai. Considered the worst movie of the decade, Mr Khan has now become something of a Twitter celebrity with his controversial and grammatically incorrect tweets and movie reviews.

Ashmit Patel

ashmit-patelWhile both Patel siblings are horrible actors, Ashmit can’t even boast of an enviable figure like his elder sis Ameesha. Movies like Intehaa and Fight Club really showed his mettle as an actor and we hope we never see him again.

Sonu Nigam


Before Himesh Reshammiya decided to step into acting, the singer who decided he would like to showcase more than his voice was Sonu Nigam. The talented singer’s versatility doesn’t extend to acting and he was simply horrible in movies like Jaani Dushman (perhaps the worst Hindi movie ever made), Kash Aap Hamare Hote and Love in Nepal. Thank God Sonu got the message and quit!
