Bollywood Celebs Who Acted In Ads Before Making It Big In Films  

Many Bollywood celebs are remembered for the ads they do along with their signature roles they performed in films. 

Like Amitabh Bachchan acting for Dairy Milk. We remember him as being synonymous with one liner - 'Kuch Meetha ho Jaye' after every meal. Or Aamir Khan in 'Thanda Matlab Coca Cola' for Coca Cola and so on. Such is the power of stars that we remember the brands due to them.    

Long before they tasted stardom, Shahid was a Complan boy and Preity was a Liril girl! 

Advertisements leave an impression on minds of people if they are able to touch people's lives and sentiments. And it is always fun to lay our eyes on old moments of Bollywood celebs.

Here, we bring you a list of Bollywood stars who began their career by acting in advertisements.

Read on to know some more fun facts about the stars.      

#1. Preity Zinta in an ad for Liril.


Way back in 1997, Preity Zinta did this ad for Liril soap. She is seen all bubbly and enjoying in the waterfall. Soon after this ad, she took to Bollywood with her super adorable smile and dimples.

#2. Deepika Padukone in 'Kya Aap Close-Up Karte Hain?'

Atleast once, we have sung to the tune of this ad, 'Kya Aap Close-Up Karte Hain?' And the fact that sexy damsel Deepika Padukone starred in this ad makes it worth remembering. 

Check this video to relive the morning fun.      

#3. Varun Dhawan for Bournvita.

Looking at this cute ad, you will know he became the 'Student of the Year'! 

Maybe this motivating ad in which he acted as a child artist in the 90s encouraged him.  

#4. Anushka Sharma for a South Indian soap. 

As an epitome of fairness, Anushka Sharma acted in this advertisement for a South Indian soap before her Bollywood debut.   

#5. The super hot Milind Soman, the man who doesn't age!

The sexy dude once promoted the LML Vespa, bare chested and is seen embracing Vespa.  

#6. Vidya Balan as a yummy mummy in Surf Excel ad. 

Do you remember that she started her career with the comedy show 'Hum Paanch'? Well, this ad from the 90s will take you down the memory lane. The power-packed actor that she is today is seen as a caring mother in the advertisement.  

#7. Ayesha Takia and Shahid Kapoor as Complan kids.

The two look endearing in this advertisement. They are naughty kids who pester their mom.  

#8. Aishwarya Rai in Camlin Pencils ad.
