In nearly every television commercial, we get to see a pretty or a handsome face. It is very rare that these faces end up becoming a famous bollywood star. But yes, amidst this rarity were a bunch struggling actors, who dared to dream big and made their way to the silver screen. We present to you list of such actors, who started their journey to stardom with television commercial/s before making it big:
1) Shahid Kapoor:
Remember that cute boy in the complan ad who says â€œI am a complan boyâ€? Yes, he is the current heartthrob of Bollywood Shahid Kapoor.
Who knew the teenager who starred along with SRK, Kajol and Rani Mukherji in the famous Pepsi commercial would host award shows with SRK someday.
2) Ayesha Takia:
Oh yes, she is the same girl who appeared along with Shahid Kapoor in the Complan ad as the â€œcomplan girlâ€. All we can say is- she keeps getting better with age.
3) Preity Zinta:
That pretty and cute girl in the Perk ad who hides behind 'hunger strike' poster to eat Perk is none other than Priety Zinta. Who knew her bubbly smile would make the whole country fall for her some day.
4) Katrina Kaif:
That Fevicol advertisements never disappoint is a known fact. And one of the classic Fevicol commercial features the beautiful Katrina Kaif much before she made the hearts of millions of Indians go Bang Bang.
5) Vidya Balan:
When it comes to actors from advertisements, we just cannot give a miss to Vidya Balan who appeared in several commercials, like Clinic Plus and Surf Excel, and serials before becoming the new Parineeta of B-town.
6) Salman Khan:
Had the makers of Limca ad known what Salman Khan is going to be 20 years later, they wouldn't have committed the mistake of keeping him for just 20 seconds.
Commercials are a part of every star's career. But how they get treated from just a good looking face in earlier commercials to a big star in today's advertisements is a proof of their hard work and much-deserved stardom.
