Initial movies of Top Stars - I

It is surprising to note that many leading actors / actresses, who hit big time with some movie, made small modest beginnings with obscure roles. Following are some of the actors who have made it big with their debut as leading actors but in fact did smaller roles in films before their big break.

Aamir Khan - Debut as a leading actor in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988) directed by Mansoor Khan and starring Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla. Also featured as a child artist in the title song of Yaadon Ki Baraat (1973) directed by Nasir Hussain starring Dharmendra, Zeenat Aman, Tariq and Neetu Singh.

Sridevi - Before she hit big time in Hindi film industry with Sadma (1983) directed by (Balu Mahendra and Hrishikesh Mukherjee) and starring Kamal Haasan and Sridevi, she acted as a child artiste in Julie (1975) directed by K. S. Setumadhava and starring Laxmi and Vikram. Of course, by the time Sridevi started acting in Hindi movies, she had acted in numerous South Indian films.

Anil Kapoor - Before he became a recognised leading actor with Woh Saat Din (1983) directed by Bapu and starring Anil Kapoor, Padmini Kolhapure and Naseerudin Shah, he did quite a few teeny weeny roles in movies like (i) Humare Tumhare (1979) directed by Umesh Mehra and starring Sanjeev Kumar and Rakhee Gulzar (ii) Hum Paanch (1980) directed by Bapu and starring Sanjeev Kumar, Shabana Azmi and Mithun Chakraborty) and (iii) Shakti (1982) directed by Ramesh Sippy and starring Dilip Kumar, Rakhee Gulzar, Amitabh Bachchan and Smita Patil.
