Actors like Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor who got their start in music videos

Long before social media existed, knowing who’s doing what in the celebrity world, who’s debuting in what movie, all that gossip fodder wasn’t even a luxury for moviegoers.

Instagram collabs came much later, before this one ‘happened’ when an actor was spotted in a video of a famous pop song. Here are 7 Bollywood actors who made their acting debut in a music video:

Shahid Kapoor

We all remember a cute Shahid, probably a teenager, running around and running over his apartment building neighbor (played by Hrishita Bhatt) in the famous Aankhon Mein Tera Hi Chehra by 90s pop group Aryans.

Bipasha Basu

You’re a real 90s kid if you remember seeing sultry Bipasha dancing to Tu in Sonu Nigam’s music video. The song was one of his biggest hits.

John Abraham

Few people will remember, but John Abraham started his acting career with Jazzy B’s famous Punjabi song, Husna Di Sarkar.

Vidya Balan

One of the best actors in the country, Vidya is still known as the beautiful daughter of Kabhi Aana Tu Meri Gali opposite Palash Sen.

Milind Soman

You can forget the movies he did, but you can’t forget his starring in Alisha Chinai’s movie. Made in India!

Priyanka Chopra

Okay, you will only remember this if, like me, you also spent hours watching music videos during school days. Long before being seen as PC the ‘desi’ girl, Priyanka was spotted in Daler Mehendi’s song Sajjan Mere Satrangiya.

Deepika Padukone

You’re only a real Deepika fan if you remember her from Himesh Reshammiya Naam Hai Tera.
