The OTT platforms have transformed and shifted the mindset of people more towards seeing web series rather than any other content. Following this, the various young talents, as well as long-lost actors of the Bollywood industry got a chance to showcase their skills and get back in action by making a comeback on various OTT platforms. And, as for the existing celebrities, the web series not only helped the actors to get work but also enhanced their careers in the industry. So, today we have created a list of some well-known faces who shot to fame after their appearance and works in just one web series. Let’s have a look:
The first work of the actor that runs through our mind is his exceptional performance as Mikesh in permanent roommates. This series probably became one of the biggest boons to the actor and he shot to fame overnight. And to our utter surprise, this series marked its release back in 2014 when the works of such kind were not even prominent. Apart from being a famous face for its successful seasons the actor also became famous through another web series tripling and was seen as a lead alongside actress Kareena Kapoor Khan in the film, Veere Di Wedding.
Bollywood actress Shweta Tripathi not only astounded the audiences with the critically acclaimed performance in the movie Masaan but also gave a shocker with her brilliance in both the installments of the most popular web series Mirzapur. While we saw a sober side of her character in the 1st installment of Mirzapur, the actress was back with a bang in its second installment which highly impressed the audiences. The bold character of Gajgamini/ Golu Gupta played by the actress made her popular among the audiences.
Do we need to babber about her brilliant work and details about her character in the web series, sacred games? Well, the actress shot to immense fame and popularity with her role as a transgender in the first installment of the series. And, redefining her beauty with “Kukoo ki Jawani” became one of the favorite elements from the series, making her win the hearts of audiences and rise to fame overnight. However, to refresh our memories of her previous works, the actress was previously seen in the Salman Khan starrer film, Ready where she played the role of a house servant. She was later seen in the second installment of tripling and even appeared in several Bollywood movies as well.
Just the first look on the poster of this actress was enough to make the audiences go crazy over her mesmerizing looks. By garnering immense popularity with various movies, web series, and several appearances on the OTT platforms, the actress became a constant favorite for the audiences. She was seen in the web series Made in Heaven and Bard of Blood along with appearing in an anthology film ghost story. The Spooky character played by the actress in the ghost story creeped the hell out of audiences.
Bollywood actor Abhishek Banerjee is still regarded as one of the underrated side actors of the industry. Proving his brilliance by playing a set of diverse roles can not be neglected and he truly deserved more attention than what he has been receiving. Talking about his works, the actor made us all his fans with his appearance in the Web series Mirzapur in the role of Compounder. And while we still were drooling over his performance in the series, the actor shook the audience as Hathoda Tyagi from Patal Lok and a ghost role in the Netflix series typewriter. He has even been liked by the people for his exceptional performance in the Bollywood movie, Stree.
Do we need to mention his brilliant work in the web series scam 1992? Well, this actor became immensely popular for his performance as Harshad Mehta in the series and became one of the most talked-about actors at that time. Though the actor had already been working in the movie industry since 2005, Pratik could not make a distinct position in the industry unless he was seen in the lead role of Harshad Mehta in the Sony LIV web series scam 1992.
The quirky dialogue delivery style of this actress has ended us all being a fan of the actress. Just like the Bollywood actor Sumit Vyas, the actress Nidhi Singh also became a prominent public figure with her work in the web series, permanent roommates. After the tremendous success of this series, the actress went on to appear in various other TVF videos. Later she grabbed a lead role in another web series Apaharan that became a cherry on the top for the career of the actress. She even went on to star in various other web series like Brij Mohan Amar Rahe and Abhay 2 which added to the brilliance of the actress.
Surprising us all with his brilliant performance and lesser recognized film Mukkebaaz, the actor finally received the fame that he deserved with his work in the web series bard of blood and Betaal. The wider recognition bagged by the actor with his performance in various OTT movies and series helped the people realize his true potential.
Looks like each actor of the web series Mirzapur had their own set of brilliance which was polished by the web series. While this actor had already been a popular part of the glamour industry, he truly proved his potential with his work as Bablu Pandit in the web series Mirzapur. Sadly, his role ended with the first installment which became one of the biggest regrets for the audiences, and the latest work of the actor in the film Haseena Dilruba alongside actress Taapsee Pannu was highly appreciated by the audiences.
The overwhelming success grabbed by all the installments of the web series The Family Man not only became a delight for the audiences but its makers and actors as well. Starring Manoj Bajpayee in the lead role, the series included a vast set of characters playing pivotal roles, and amongst those, the actor Sharib Hashmi became one of the favourites for the audiences. Playing the role of Jayavant Kashinath / JK Talpade, this actor was seen accompanying Manoj Bajpayee in his deadly operations.
