While many Bollywood celebrities successfully manage to carve their place in the hearts of the audience and charm them for generations, a few unfortunate ones ride their wave of fame for a very short span.
There are some actresses who entered the industry with either a small project or a lead role but could not sustain themselves in the profession, as they disappeared from Bollywood suddenly and never made a comeback
Here is a list of seven such actresses who seemingly disappeared after starring in major movies:
1. Kim Sharma
Kim Sharma, nevertheless, had a dreamy debut with Mohabbatein which had a stellar cast featuring star performers like Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan.
After the success of the film, people expected to star in bigger and better projects, but that was not to be.
More so, her personal life seemed to make more news than her film career.
2. Koena Mitra
While humming ‘Saki Saki’, one obviously recalls Koena Mitra and her breathtaking performance in the song from the film Musafir.
But her contribution to the Bollywood industry ended here and shifted to television.
In no time, she accepted shows like Fear Factor India, Jhalak Dikhla Jaa 3 and Bigg Boss 13.
3. Tanishaa Mukerji
Tanuja’s daughter and Kajol’s younger sister Tanishaa, made her Bollywood debut with Sssshhh… in 2003.
Later, she played the lead role in Neal ‘n’ Nikki alongside Uday Chopra, and that was it.
After these films, she was seen in many films, including Sarkar and Tango Charlie, but she had very less screen time.
Tanishaa tried to make a comeback through Bigg Boss, but she did not seem to land any major projects after that.
4. Sneha Ullal
Sneha made her acting debut with Lucky – No Time For Love with Salman Khan. The actress was popular at that time for having a lot of resemblance to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
A while after Sneha’s first Hindi film, she switched to Telugu films where she mostly had less screen time and special appearances.
5. Udita Goswami
Udita Goswami made a bang when she entered Bollywood, and her performances in super hits like Zeher, Paap and Aksar were highly appreciated by the audience.
Post her marriage with the famous filmmaker Mohit Suri she decided to dedicate time to her family life.
A mother to a beautiful daughter and a son, she composes music and is a disc jockey.
6. Malini Sharma
Malini Sharma has never been out of the spotlight as she’s known for her modelling and acting skills.
She’s known for starring in popular songs like ‘Sawan Mein Lag Gayi Aag’, ‘Kya Soorat Hai’, etc.
Later, she married Priyanshu Chatterjee, an actor but got divorced in 2001.
Afterwards, she worked in TV Serials to focus on her acting skills.
She finally decided to quit Bollywood after her debut appearance in the 2002 hit film Raaz.
7. Pooja Salvi
Pooja Salvi started her career with modelling and worked with many Indian brands.
She was also seen with actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in an ad commercial for LUX.
Pooja made her Bollywood debut with Rohan Sippy’s 2013 rom-com drama Nautanki Saala, alongside Ayushmann Khurrana and Kunaal Roy Kapoor.
However, she has not appeared in any major projects post the film.
