Humans are really big on getting more chances at something because sometimes your potential gets noticed only after some point of time. Like many spiritual gurus opine, there is a time for everything. Same goes for success. It visits you only when you deserve to get lauded and loaded. In Bollywood, there have been a few actors who were privileged enough to get a second chance at their career and today, are one of the superstars.
Saif Ali Khan
Turning Point: Dil Chahta Hai
The Nawab of Bollywood has seen a lot of ups and downs in his career. He debuted with Parampara which didn’t help him much while Aashiq Awara made him popular, but it was Main Khiladi Tu Anari which propelled him forward positively. However, even after doing many films success eluded him, apart from a sporadic Kya Kehna (a Preity Zinta film) or Hum Saath Saath Hai (an ensemble film). It was in 2001 that Dil Chahta hai released and things changed. It was as if Bollywood has refound a long lost actor who has skills but needed someone to hone them. The forever in love Sameer played by Saif is the one best friend we all have! Saif Ali Khan had finally arrived.
