In an explosive long post on her Facebook page the 18-year-old cited religious reasons for her decision to quit her promising career in Bollywood. Her last big screen outing was last year with Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink.

Imran Khan

Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan’s nephew Imran Khan has quit Bollywood as an actor. He broke the news earlier this month. Imran made his debut in Hindi film industry in 2008 with the hit film Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na. However, most of what followed was forgettable fare as Luck, Kidnap, I Hate Luv Story and Break Ke Baad. There was Delhi Belly in 2011, but that was an odd success, clearly not enough. Imran’s last big screen outing was in 2015 with Kangana Ranaut in Katti Batti.

Tanushree Dutta

She recently made news after she opened the floodgates for the #Metoo movement in India. Tanushree was away from the spotlight for almost eight years before she came back from abroad and talked about her harassment incident involving actor Nana Patekar on the sets of Horn ‘Ok’ Pleassss. Tanushree was last seen on the big screen in the 2010 film Apartment.

Kumar Gaurav

He made his debut in the 1981 superhit Love Story, and instantly became a teenybopper heartthrob of his generation. However, becoming typecast as a loverboy, his luck ran out soon enough. Over the years, he tried to change his image several times with films such as Goonj, Kaante, Naam and Janam. While these roles were appreciated, they could not revive his career. His last release was in the year 2006, titled My Daddy Strongest.

Mayuri Kango

Mayuri Kango made her debut in Saeed Mirza’s 1995 art film, Naseem, and entered mainstream Bollywood with a year later with the Mahesh Bhatt film Papa Kehte Hain. Despite hit music and immense pre-release hype, Papa Kehte Hain failed to live up to expectations at the box office. Her songs in the film, notably Ghar se nikalti hi sung by Udit Narayan, continue to be popular. She has worked in films such as Betaabi, Hogi Pyaar Ki Jeet, Papa The Great and Badal. Mayuri quit her acting career in 2003. She is currently in Google, working as the Head Of Industry going by her Linkedin profile.
