Hollywood and Bollywood film industries have always crossed paths, it started with us remaking their cult movies, and has now progressed to actors from one industry acting in the other.
Many Hollywood actors have starred in Bollywood flicks and while watching a random actor who we’ve seen in a foreign film shake a leg in desi style can be pretty cool, not all of these collaborations work out. Sometimes these actors who are otherwise pretty badass on the screen, look like they’re clueless as to what they’re doing in a Bollywood flick.
Check out 7 international celebs who had no idea what they were doing in a Bollywood movie:
1. Stallone in ‘Kambakkht Ishq’
When the Rocky Balboa star signed up for this (godawful) movie, we’re pretty sure he had no idea how embarrassingly low-grade the fight sequence would be. Seriously though, he’s pushing cars and hitting people with street lamps. Bollywood really spares no one!
2. Snoop Dogg in ‘Singh is Kinng’
While we loved the beats, Snoop rapping ‘What up to all the ladies hanging out in Mumbai. Cheese makes dollars, east west masala’ is too cringy to be real. Also, why is he randomly wearing a pagdi?
3. Kylie Minogue in ‘Blue’
Expectations- Can’t get you out of my head
Reality- Chiggy Wiggy
Seeing Kylie try to salvage this horrible song and Akshay Kumar’s random bhangra fits was absolutely painful.
4. Denise Richards in ‘Kambakkht Ishq’
We’re beginning to think that Kambakkht Ishq wasn’t really a movie, it was an elaborate plot by Bollywood to humiliate Hollywood biggies. Denise was on screen for 5 minutes, and not even a second of that is worth watching. Don’t watch it if you’re an Akshay Kumar fan, because you won’t be one by the end of this.
5. Brande Roderick in ‘Out of Control’
Though Playboy model Brande looked cute in the movie, the painful dubbing, horrible plot and just everything else made it very painful to watch. We’re pretty sure Brande never watched another Bollywood movie again.
6. Chia-Hui Liu in ‘Chandni Chowk to China’
After starring in action-packed movies like The 36th Chamber of Shaolin and Kill Bill, we’re not sure why Gordon Liu wanted to be in Chandni Chowk To China where the highlight of the action sequence is Mithun Chakraborty shaking his legs.
7. Lester Speight in ‘International Khiladi’
Professional wrestler and actor Lester Speight Akshay, who is popular for his role in ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’, played a goon in International Khiladi. Akshay taking on Speight made for a hilarious action sequence – which we assume wasn’t the original intention. We’re pretty sure Lester had a good laugh too.
