    Thousands of people head to Mumbai every year in their pursuit of a breakthrough in Bollywood. They slog hard, get excited and also experience moments of despair. Some give up and some continue to trudge along. But let's face it, not everybody gets a chance. And even if they do, not everybody gets it going in the films. Several actors have hit the silverscreen only to disappear no sooner than they came. One blink of the eye and you find them missing. “Survival of the fittest” is probably what goes on in the Bollywood too.
    We're taking a look at five “blink and miss” actors who did make it to Bollywood but “sadly” did not survive.

    Daughter to actress Tanuja, Tanisha is a sister to both Kajol and Rani Mukherji. Though her “filmy” background did get her the ticket to Bollywood, it definitely did not help her survive. She debuted with the 2003 movie Sssshhh, opposite actor Dino Morea, but it did not help her make a place of her own in the industry. Although she did a few films thereafter, none of them really made a mark. She has box office bombs like 'Sssshhh…', 'Popcorn Khao! Mast Ho Jao' 'Neal N Nikki' to her credit.

    She was one of the finalists in the 1999 Femina Miss India beauty pageant after which she modeled for several advertisements and gave appearances in music videos before she finally got a chance to debut in the 2004 in Ashutosh Gowarikar's film, Swades, opposite Shahrukh Khan. Although the movie did not do great at the box office but her performance and acting skills were immensely praised by the critics. Despite her talent, she hasn't been seen on the silver screen ever since.

    Although she debuted in the 1999 flick Hu tu tu, she got noticed only after she did Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India. Though the movie was well acclaimed, even sent to the Oscars, it did not help her career to really take off. Yet, she does have a few hit films in Telegu and Hindi like Munnabhai M.B.B.S, in her kitty.

    This Mumbai-based, Bhutanese actor and model entered the industry with the 2005 multi-star cast movie 'Tango Charlie'. Although the movie got rave reviews and was received well by the audiences, it did not do well commercially and neither did it help the actor carve a niche for himself in the industry. Though he did few films like 'Ek Ajnabee' and 'Chocolate', yet he totally fits in our quest for the “blink and miss” actors of Bollywood.

    He entered the industry as a child artist in the 1983 flick, 'Masoom' where he played the role of a 9 year old boy who was refused to be accepted into the family by his step-mom. The film received a very positive response and launched his career. However, it was the 1994 movie 'Aa Gale lag Ja' that marked his debut in the leading role. Being in the industry even as a child did not really help him to keep it going. He has now put on the director's cap with the animation movie 'Roadside Romeo' and 'Pyaar Impossible'. However, his gig, both as an actor and a director, has failed to impress the audiences immensely.
