Gracie Singh

Even after doing superhit films like Lagaan and Munnabhai M.B.B.S., Gracie Singh had to take up two minutes roles in films like Ganga Jal and Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehte Hain. And later after not getting good roles, the actor stepped away from acting. Several experts also suggested that the reason behind her leaving the Hindi Film industry could also be because of her rigidity towards no body-exposure.   

Tanushree Dutta

One of the most controversial Bollywood female leads, Tanushree Dutta also had hard time in finding work in Bollywood. The actor was once a sensation after she made her debut in 2005 opposite Sonu Sood and Emran Hashmi in Aashiq Banaya Aapne. However, she later was somehow surviving in the entertainment industry until she filled complaint against veteran actor Nana Patekar during the #MeToo movement. The actor even said that no body is offering her work in Bollywood after she revealed the truth of Nana.

Bhumika Chawla

Bhumika Chawla is another Bollywood actor who first opened up about not getting work and later she even stepped aside from the Hindi film industry. Even after making it big with Salman Khan starrer Tere Naam, Bhoomika Chawla had hard time finding good and recognition worthy roles for her. Hence, she even opted for South-Indian film Industry. She was last seen in Sushant Singh Starrer-MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, she played the character of Dhoni’s sister.
