Kishore Kumar is a legend. He was as good an actor, as he was a singer! He was inimitable in a lot of ways… But, that hasnt stopped our chotu-motu local singing stars from trying their hands in movies…. Here is a short list of some of their debacles –

  • Singer turned actress of 80’s Salma Agha, wasnt bad… but she failed to create a stir with her acting in Bollywood. She would always be remembered as a singer, who gave great songs in Nikaah.
  • Lucky Ali tried his hand at acting with Sur and Kaante. Though, he was appreciated in both the movies, he failed to create the magic his voice is capable of creating – remember Sunoh?
  • Sonu Nigam – Good looks, Great voice – he came veryyyyyy close to being Kishore Kumar… But, for the fact that he cant act to save his life.
  • Palash Sen – Acted in Filhaal and disappeared after that, to save the junta from having to bear his acting
  • Shaan made a lousy debut in the critically acclaimed Daman. (Did we miss that one!?)
  • Anu Malik was supposed to play a pundit in Bride and Prejudice… Someone edited his role subsequently (oooooo!!! I love him!)
  • Most importantly Himesh Reshammiya aka HR Bad singer AND Bad Actor!

Any more debacles I missed here!?
