Nargis Fakhri, Salman Khan, Aishwarya Rai: Throwback to the unknown times of known faces
Nargis Fakhri may have made her entrance into Bollywood with Rockstar, but she had faced the camera way before that. The actress had auditioned for America's Next Top Model in 2004.
A video of the audition has now gone viral. Watch the video to see the now confident actress stammering her way through her rehearsed lines. The then 24-year old was eventually eliminated from the reality show.
Many such videos and pictures of Bollywood celebs have surfaced online. Here we dig through them to bring you a glimpse of them from a time when they were not how we know them today.
Aishwarya Rai and Sushmita Sen
Aishwarya Rai and Sushmita Sen won the coveted Miss India title in 1994. It is a treat to watch the teenage beauties present themselves so confidently at the beauty pageant.
Kareena Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor
Ever wondered how cousins Ranbir Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor were in their childhood? This 2002 Kareena Kapoor interview with Simi Garewal has a clipping from their younger days and they look adorable. Watch the video from 4:15 to see the cute Kapoor clan.
Shah Rukh Khan
Before Shah Rukh Khan began ruling Bollywood, he did shows on Doordarshan. This video is from that time when he was hosting a show and is seen introducing Kumar Sanu. Strangely some years later Sanu became Shah Rukh's voice for many songs.
Amrita Arora and Aishwarya Rai
The picture was recently shared by Amrita Arora on her Instagram account. It has Amrita lying on Aishwarya's lap in slightly intimate pose. Clicked by Prabuddha Dasgupta, the models-turned-actresses were posing for a coffee table book.
Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai
This picture was recently shared by writer-actor Rumy Jafry on Twitter and belongs to a time when Aishwarya was just taking baby steps into the film industry and Ranbir Kapoor was just a teenage boy. The picture was taken during the shooting of Aa Ab Laut Chalen, where Ranbir was helping his father Rishi Kapoor in his directorial debut.
Karisma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor
When Karisma Kapoor was going places in her Bollywood career, her little sis Kareena was only watching from the shadows.
This picture, shared recently by Karisma on her Instagram account, captures the moment when she received her first Filmfare Award for Raja Hindustani. A chubby Kareena joins her in her happy moment.
Salman Khan and family
This picture shared by Arbaaz Khan on Instagram has the whole Khan family in a single frame. Though its hard to identify who's who, we will help you with the boys.
The little boy in white Tshirt is Sohail Khan, the boy with the blue jacket is Arbaaz and the red Tshirt boy is none other than Salman Khan. Mother Salma Khan can also be seen in the picture (the woman with the glasses).
