throwback bollywood videos Check out these audition tapes from the time when today’s stars were strugglers.

Stars, who seem invincible today, were once struggling actors who were looking for an opportunity to make a mark in the glamorous world of Bollywood. Today, they are all big stars but their audition tapes are a stark reminder of what they used to be before they made it big.

Check out these audition tapes of five Bollywood stars:

1. Salman Khan

The superstar took a screen test for the 1989 romance Maine Pyaar Kiya, his first role as a leading hero. He played Prem in the film, a role that’s still remembered for Salman’s innocent performance.

2. Alia Bhatt

Alia Bhatt gave an audition for her role in Karan Johar’s Student of the Year (2012). She danced to “Bahara” from I Hate Luv Storys and read out a scene from Ranbir Kapoor-starrer, Wake Up Sid.

3. Ranveer Singh

It might be difficult for his fans to imagine him giving an audition, but this short clip shows that Ranveer never hesitated to laugh at himself.

4. Anushka Sharma

Before she made a memorable debut as ‘Tani partner’ opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008), Anushka Sharma also auditioned for another film which turned out to be 3 Idiots. Though this didn’t work out, Anushka later worked with Rajkumar Hirani in PK and Sanju.

5. Kriti Sanon

Auditions are what outsiders depend on to bag even the smallest role. Kriti’s journey was no different.
