Let’s just face it, 25 is certainly the time when quarter life crisis starts to hit you and you technically feel clueless about what is going on! There are people who are making it large in life at 25 and then there is me asking my father what form do I fill at the bank for the money deposit.
Life’s just not the same for all of us and there have been people who’ve achieved we could dream of even before they turned 25. Here are 8 Bollywood celebs who had it all before hitting the quarter-life stage.
Alia Bhatt won hearts of people all across the globe at the age of 19 when she appeared on the big-screen as Shanaya of Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year‘ and there has been no stopping for her after that. She was meant to be the next big thing in Bollywood and after movies like ‘Highway‘ and ‘Udta Punjab‘ we couldn’t be more certain.
Shraddha bagged the ‘Most Promising Actor’ title for her debut role in ‘Teen Patti’ and after that, she has reaffirmed her presence in Bollywood by romancing Aditya Roy Kapur onscreen in the 2013 megahit ‘Aashiqui 2’. Shraddha has given some brilliant performances after that and also managed to work with big banners in the industry.
Ileana had already established herself in Telugu cinema industry at the age of 19. She moved from strength to strength and had a highly acclaimed movie opposite Ranbir Kapoor in her kitty before even crossing 24. Now, that definitely does not make me feel very good about myself.
A lot of people might say that Parineeti’s first break in the industry as the bubbly Delhi girl in ‘Ladies VS Ricky Bahl‘ could have been because of her relationship with Priyanka Chopra but she proved how she was so much more than that when she took everyone by surprise in ‘Ishqzaade‘. Not only has she managed to make it big in Bollywood, she also found the time to obtain a triple honors degree from Manchester Business School before touching 25.
She won our hearts as Anjali in Karan Johar’s ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai‘ and then she set the screen on fire in ‘Student Of The Year’. Puberty hit her really well and I am certainly a little jealous here.
Dev had it all when he was 18! He had the lead role in a multiple Academy Award-winning film, a plethora of ‘Most Promising Newcomer’ awards and a co-star Freida Pinto who also happened to be his girlfriend. Some people really do have it all, don’t they?
Vicky Donor may have won him national acclaim, but it definitely wasn’t his first step towards showbiz! Ayushmann was 10 when he followed his passion and indulged in theatre before making an entry in reality shows and winning the title of Roadies 2 by the time he turned 20. Ayushmann then made a strong presence on the small screen and that’s when we knew Ayushmann was destined for great things.
Kriti started her career with modeling and went on to become an actress even before she turned 25. She showed the industry that she has all it takes to make it big here with her Bollywood debut movie ‘Heropanti‘, for which she won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut.
These people really knew what they wanted and made sure that they have it all sorted before they reach 25. There’s obviously a lot of hard work and well, also a little role by destiny in their success.
