Many stars in the Indian film industry are not only excellent actors, but they also possess a wide range of skills. Some actors can sing, dance, produce films, direct films, work as music composers, and have a background in space education, among other things.
These celebrities show that they have no boundaries and can do whatever they want. Now, in this article, we will take a look at five actors from Bihar who conquered Bollywood with “talent” and “hard work”.
5. Akhilendra Mishra
Akhilendra Mishra is unarguably one of Bollywood’s most underappreciated actors. Hailing from Bihar, he has a science master’s degree. On the contrary, his father was never enthusiastic about his son’s interest or passion to pursue a career in acting. He has appeared in a number of successful films, including Lagaan, Gangaajal, Kaabil, and Sarfarosh.
“We as youngsters had the utmost regard for our parents, especially our father,” he told Outlook Magazine back then. We never went directly to our fathers to ask for anything. Our mothers were always the conduits. I used to go to her every day and tell her that I wanted to attempt acting, but she pushed me away, saying that if I couldn’t become an engineer, how could I possibly become an actor?
“I summoned the confidence to approach my father and ask him personally after receiving no favourable response from her. He agreed, much to everyone’s astonishment. I suppose he had no idea how far things would go.”
4. Sanjay Mishra
For the unversed, Sanjay Mishra was born into a middle-class family in Darbhanga, Bihar. He started his acting career in 1991 with a role in the TV series Chanakya.
3. Pankaj Tripathi
In order to pursue a profession in acting, the maverick actor had to overcome his parents’ opposition. At first, he didn’t want to work in this sector at all. He discovered his affinity for performing when he was 22.
His father had hoped he would become a doctor up to that point. As he was from a small town in Bihar, he only knew two professions: doctor and engineer.
2. Manoj Bajpayee
It is no secret that due to the presence of Manoj Bajpayee, The Family Man 1 and 2 was a huge success. It’s a shame that Bollywood didn’t appreciate the delicate acting skills of men. He’s so versatile that he can easily slip into any role he’s given.
His portrayal as Srikant Tiwari in The Family Man, in which he was cast as a normal man, was a hit with the public because it was so relatable.
1. Sushant Singh Rajput
Sushant Singh made a name in the Hindi film industry with films like Kai Po Che, Ms Dhoni The Untold Story, Sonchiriya. He was not only a talented actor but also loved to live his life to the fullest. He owned many luxurious things in life.
He kick-started his career with the Television show Kis Desh Mein Hai Mera Dil and rose to fame with Pavitra Rishta. With Zee Tv show, the star actor ruled the hearts of the people for many years. His rise to fame is obvious with the kind of blockbuster movies he delivered.
He was the only Indian actor who bought a piece of lunar land on the far side of the moon in a region called the Mare Muscoviense or the ‘Sea of Muscovy.’ He bought the property from the International Lunar Lands Registry. He also owned expensive telescope, cars, bikes.
