In Bollywood, there’s no such thing as a ‘gap’ year. Out of sight is out of mind – if an actor doesn’t do films in a while, it damages their careers big-time. But whenever a celebrity takes a break, their comeback project is always talked about. Here’s a list of Bollywood actors who made kickass comebacks.

1. Sanjay Dutt

Bhoomi may not have been a commercial success but Sanju Baba was outstanding in the film. The role suited his age and he showed that he’s still got what it takes.

2. Rani Mukerji

Post her marriage to Aditya Chopra, Rani Mukerji made a comeback with Mardaani. She played a tough cop who busts a prostitution racket.


3. Sridevi

The actress played a dutiful wife and mother in Gauri Shinde’s English Vinglish. The film was loved by both the critics and the audience.

4. Kajol

After K3G, Kajol took a five-year break before signing Fanna. She starred opposite Aamir Khan in this 2006 blockbuster.


5. Madhuri Dixit

The dhak dhak girl’s comeback film was all about dance. Aaja Nachle didn’t really help her career but she was fabulous as always.
