4. MADHURI DIXIT (Aaja Nachle) - Darling of millions, the nation danced to her tunes for more than a decade when she burst on the scene with 'Ek Do Teen.' Several hits and chart-busters followed till 1999 when she broke a million hearts. Madhuri tied the knot with Sriram Nene and settled in US with 'Devdas' being her last release in 2002. But she could not stay away for long and she returned after 5 years with an accent and with 'Aaja Nachle'. Alas! her comeback found no takers and her act met with empty halls and went on to be a disaster. Her usual song and dance routine failed to interest anyone and the film was utterly rejected. Mads is now trying a second comeback of sorts with Gulab Gang.
5. KARISMA KAPOOR (Dangerous Ishq) - When Lolo metamorphed into Rani Hindustani, she became every Indian male's ultimate fantasy. The blue-eyed Kapoor ruled the marquee right through the 90s and finally married industrialist Sanjay Kapur in 2003. Karisma returned to the silver screen a good nine years later in 2012 with Vikram Bhatt's 'Dangerous Ishq'. Like the title, it proved to be a dangerous gamble and the mind-numbing tale of star-crossed lovers spanning four births could not even last four weeks at cinemas. The use of 3D only magnified the plot-holes for all to see.
6. MANISHA KOIRALA (Bhoot Returns) - 'Ek ladki ko dekha to aisa laga' sang Anil Kapoor and the whole of India followed suit. With 'Bombay' and 'Khamoshi', Manisha became the undisputed actress to reckon with. Then began the downward spiral and she was failed to cash on her initial success. In 2012, Manisha made a comeback of sorts with RGV's 'Bhoot Returns' but only managed to scare the public away from the theaters. News of her tragic illness has shocked everyone and we wish her a speedy recovery.
