7 Indian Actors Who Made Us Believe That Anything Is Possible

There has been a lot talked about Bollywood in the recent times not for its films but nepotism. And therefore is perceived as a place of the war between star kids and newcomers from non-filmy background. Over the years, there have been quite a few who have made it big on the scene without inside help, and that speaks volumes of how perseverance and hard work with a dash of hope really can go a long way.

Struggles have remained in existence for these men even after firmly having created a name in the industry, but the taste of success has lead them to firmly believe that every inch of the struggle is always worth it in the end. So without further ado, here’s a list of 7 male actors who proved to us that anything is possible.

Ranveer Singh

Undeniably one of the most versatile actors Bollywood has the pleasure of seeing; Ranveer did not have it easy at all. Born without a silver spoon, he experienced a lot of rejection and was ridiculed for his nature way too often. His stardom was questioned more than once, with the rumors about Ranveer’s father paying Aditya Chopra to launch his career. He also spoke about how he had to keep his emotional and serious persona under the wraps as he believed it hindered with his growth in the industry.

He has always felt that his dreams were too farfetched for him to reach, and he almost gave it all up when he left for university in America until a chance encounter there gave him the opportunity to perform on stage that made him realize that he was born to perform in front of people.

His struggles have proved that he dug his career and sculpted it with his own hands to make it look the way it does today, including his glittering blockbuster debut with Band Baaja Baarat and his versatility shown through his roles in movies like Dil Dhadakne Do, Padmaavat and Gully Boy.

Manoj Bajpayee

His journey to stardom is one of inspiration. Bajpayee grew up in extremely humble beginnings in Bihar. His love for films started at a very young age idolizing Amitabh Bachchan. The 9-year-old Manoj had convinced himself that acting was life for him.

At the age of 17, Manoj bought a one way ticket to Delhi to study acting without even informing his parents.
