Comebacks acknowledge the return of something great. Perhaps, something that was once good, went through a few rough patches and now emerges as something great or even something or someone coming back to give things a second shot. There is much more to a comeback than we expect.
We have noticed that in the past decade many a star have risen to the top once again. We thought it would be interesting to take a look at those comebacks and the return to superstar status that some actors in Bollywood have made in different ways. A reinvention in style and image, a literal comeback after a prolonged absence from films, someone emerging with great performances and hits after a year of bad luck. Everyone on this list embodies a comeback in some way, shape or form and they are credible and should be acknowledged. So let’s take a trip down memory lane over the past decade and take a look at some of the comebacks that have left us with great films and performances to remember.
10. Hema Malini
Hema Malini was the Dream Girl in her generation of actresses and has retained that status even today. This Evergreen queen was away for a bit, but then she returned looking amazing and wowing once again! Her pairing with Amitabh Bachchan in Baghban reminded Bollywood viewers that actors of the older generation could play lead roles in films today and not just be regulated to the backseat in films that focus on young love stories. We also saw her play an equally memorable role in Veer-Zaara and with that she established herself once again as one of THE actresses of the Hindi film industry. Let’s hope we get to see more of Hema Malini sooner than later.
