From smaller roles to background dancers, these Bollywood stars slipped right through our eyes in popular movies even before their official debut.

1. Shahid Kapoor- Dil To Pagal Hai (1997)

Despite being a star kid (Pankaj Kapoor’s son), Shahid Kapoor struggled quite a lot in the industry to make a place for himself. He appeared as a background dancer in many famous dance numbers like Kahin Aag Lage (Taal-1999) and Le Gayi Le Gayi (Dil Toh Pagal Hai-1997). No wonder why Shahid Kapoor is such a fab dancer.

4. Anushka Sharma- Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006)

We all know Anushka Sharma made a smashing debut with Shah Rukh Khan’s Rabb Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008). But do you know that she made a fleeting appearance in Sanjay Dutt’s popular film Lage Raho Munna Bhai. She was in the poster in the backdrop of Sanjay Dutt in one of the scenes. It is well know that Ms. Sharma did many commercials before making her official debut. Probably, that poster belongs to one of those commercials.
