7 Worst Movies From Iconic Actors

Team FC

Deepika Padukone - Happy New Year (2014)

While her turn as Mohini remains fun, Deepika Padukone was let down by the rest of Happy New Year: Farah Khan tried too hard to evoke the sensibilities of Manmohan Desai without capturing the spirit of the legend's work, and completely abandoned her own admirable skills as a director of spoofy comedy and action.

Shah Rukh Khan - Dilwale (2015)

Rohit Shetty's attempt to rekindle the Kajol-Shah Rukh romance went horrendously wrong, tacked on as it was on a broadstrokes, half-hearted action comedy which had not one of its three primary elements in working condition.


Katrina Kaif - Fitoor (2016)

Abhishek Kapoor reimagined Charles Dickens' Great Expectations in conflict-ridden Kashmir, only for it to belly flop, thanks in large part to the lack of chemistry between his leads (Kaif and Aditya Roy Kapur) and a plot that was too serious for the film Fitoor was.

Aamir Khan - Thugs of Hindostan (2018)

Khan was the only member of the cast of the Vijay Krishna Acharya film having any kind of fun with his character; the somberness the others brought flew in the face of the film's genre ambitions and made it to leaden to be even minutely enjoyable.

Ajay Devgn - Bhuj: The Pride of India (2021)

Based on true events from the 1971 Indo-Pak War, the Abhishek Dudhaiya film was everything old Bollywood embodied, in the worst ways imaginable. Disinterested actors, tacky practical and visual effects, visibly poor production quality, and the kind of tone that had long soured all made Bhuj quite embarrassing.

Akshay Kumar - BellBottom (2021)

Ranjit Tewari's aircraft hijack thriller featured Akshay Kumar on autopilot, aside from a narrative that was interrupted by romances and jokes too often for it to ever seem thrilling.

Ranbir Kapoor - Brahmastra: Part One - Shiva (2022)

Unlike his other ambitious failures – Bombay Velvet (2015) and Jagga Jasoos (2017) – Ranbir Kapoor was actively bad as an actor in Brahmastra, which didn't help a film that was already narratively poor and lacking on good performances.
