5 Bollywood Actors Who Never Asked For Work From Directors And Producers.


Many actors in Bollywood have almost stopped getting work and they sometimes appear on the screen after a big hiatus.

Nowadays so many young artists have come, that the interest of people in seeing old actors has reduced to some extent.

But yes, their fans still like to see them working. In Bollywood, actors may get projects only after they specially asked for it.

While some actors do not shy away from asking for work, some actors decided better to sit vacantly and watch TV at home, but they never go to any producer-director to ask for work.

Every actor has ups and downs in their career, actors like Anupam Kher, Shahid Kapoor, Manoj Bajpayee have called directors and producers for work in the movies.
