It just so happens that no matter how illustrious a career Bollywood actor has had or what level of stardom he reaches, there will always come a time when they end up doing a film so horrendous that they will regret having done so. Yes, today we are going to take a look at Bollywood's worst movies ever done by some of the best actors.

Stars like Amitabh Bachchan who is still on top of his game in the film industry and who gave us brilliant films like Paa also managed to give us a nightmare with Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag. As audiences we were shocked, a veteran actor who played the role of a kid who suffers from progeria left us mesmerized with his performance also managed to traumatize us with Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag.

His movie is a fine example of what we are talking about today, Bollywood's best actor doing worst films we can ever imagine. The movies are so bad that sometimes the actors even end up losing the respect we have for them. Amitabh Bachchan went through a really tough time to get back his image.

Recently actor Ranbir Kapoor too could not escape from this, his movie Besharam was really bad so much that the audiences were cursing the actor for being besharam and doing this movie. Poor guy dragged his parents to be part of this dud film too. Even though the movie was given a lot of hype on the Kapoor family finally starring together in a movie, it could not do much and the movie failed miserably.

Versatile powerhouses of talent, and endurance, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Rajkumar Rao who have never given a bad performance too are destined to acquire this tag in the days to come. Even though they're regarded as Hindi cinema's most trustworthy forces these actors cannot escape a fate that is destined to all actors.

You can't really blame the actors though for sometimes even an exciting script can transpire into a complete disaster and they cannot foresee it. While some actors realize the disastrous fate midway during the shooting but cannot back out due to the commitment given to the project. Let's check out the worst films of Bollywood's most respected actor.

Amitabh Bachchan, Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag

Doesn't matter how intently one associates the ‘angry young man' epithet with him, Amitabh Bachchan's superstardom could never keep him away from gratifying the artist within. Of course, he went a little too extreme there by agreeing to portray Gabbar in Ramgopal Varma's remake of Sholay. 

Irrfan Khan and Divya Dutta in Hisss

Think Irrfan Khan and such fine films come to mind - The Lunchbox, The Namessake, Paan Singh Tomar, Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster Returns. The eternally in-form actor's presence wasn't enough to endure the god-awful supernatural snake horror/fantasy, Hisss starring Mallika Sherawat.

Naseeruddin Shah and Sunny Leone in Jackpot

One can breathlessly rattle off a long list of the actor's best works -- Nishant, Aakrosh, Bhumika, Bazaar, Katha, Sparsh, Masoom, Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyon Aata Hai, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron, Ijaazat, Mirch Masala, Mirza Ghalib, Sarfarosh, Ishqiya. Having said that, his reckless selection of films can often leave his best of fans confounded. And his dreadlock-sporting Boos in the deservedly slammed Jackpot is right on top of that list.

Aamir Khan and Twinkle Khanna in Mela

The audience trusts him, something few superstars can boast of. And that's why it is particularly painful to witness his judgement backfire in the ultra shoddy, Mela -- a doomed reworking of Nasir Hussain'sCaravan from start to finish.

 

 

Anil Kapoor and Juhi Chawla, Andaz

Another actor who's taken a conscious approach to work in unique films and expand his range is Anil Kapoor. But he too faltered with David Dhawan's grossly vulgar, Andaz. Even after 20 years, the embarrassment lives on.

Pankaj Kapur and Kareena Kapoor in Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon

And while he's simply incapable of delivering a bad performance, his mild-mannered daddy to Kareena Kapoor in the shrieking romance, Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon is one film he could do without.

 

 

Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh in Besharam

He won a National award for his portrayal of a tubby teenager infatuated by his schoolteacher in his debut,Mera Naam Joker. Sadly, the terrific actor got it terribly wrong with the worst film of last year --Besharam that teamed him up with wife Neetu and son Ranbir Kapoor.

Paresh Rawal in Maan Gaye Mughal-E-Azam

'Mark idhar hai,' insists Paresh Rawal and there's no refuting it either. But even he is reduced to a screaming moron in that travesty co-starring Mallika Sherawat and Rahul Bose -- Maan Gaye Mughal-E-Azam.

Anupam Kher in Yamla Pagla Deewana 2

From Bollywood's Saaransh, Daddy, Karma, Maine Gandhi Ko Nahin Maara, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Lamhe, Chaalbaaz to international hits like Bend it Like Beckham and Silver Linings Playbook,Anupam Kher has many a feathers in his hat.
And the recent entrant in that infamous lot is the Deol baloney -- Yamla Pagla Deewana 2, which features him dressed as loon in Lucius Malfoy's wig who refers to himself as Dude and cracking witless jokes that wont make a four-year old laugh.

 

 

Om Puri and Mukesh Tiwari in Buddha Mar Gaya

As the imposing presence headlining some of our best films in addition to acclaimed international projects, it would be unfair to overlook his past achievements in light of recent disappointments like Kamal Dhamaal Malamaal and Policegiri. But his rock solid presence is dumbed down to play a ludicrous ‘baba' with bisexual tones in the offensively bad, Buddha Mar Gaya.
