There was a time when people would simply get spellbound by this actor's screen presence and exemplary performances. Girls would get wooed by his looks; other actors would get some major inferiority complex and what not. But, even after possessing such qualities, his innings in the film industry didn't last for a long time. Maybe due to this dynamic and interchanging environment, the industry is deemed to be different.
We are going to take you through the story of none other than Harish Kumar. The actor who was cast opposite Karisma Kapoor in her debut film. Later, he starred in a film that had Govinda too. Suddenly, this actor disappeared from the silver screen and lived his life in anonymity.
I know a lot of questions might have made their way into your mind, let's unveil the answers to all of them one by one.
As early as 15 years of age, Harish started getting offers to act as a lead actor in various films. His Telugu film Prem Qaidi was a massive hit in the Telugu film industry, and later it was remade in Hindi with actress Karisma opposite Harish.
It proved to be a great film and was also the stepping stone to success for both the actors.
He worked diligently to make his special identity as an actor in the film industry.
Harish played Govinda's friend in 'Coolie No.1'. While Govinda's performance made him audience's favorite, Harish's performance was equally appreciated.
At one time, many of his films worked really great at the box office.
Crime and comedy genre film, Inteqam was the actor's last film which was released in 2001.
But the question here remains that even after achieving so many awards and ruling millions of hearts, what was the reason for his sudden failure?
In today's era, actors are paid in lump sums, but we all must grow-up and accept the fact that not every day is a bright, sunny day. Harish had earned a lot of fame, money, and goodwill in the 90s, but he lives the life of anonymity these days.
In a way, the actor is himself responsible for this havoc in his career. He stopped giving importance to his looks and physique due to which he gained a lot of weight, and the makers stopped approaching him for the films.
Whatever may be the reason for his failure, one thing that we can never forget; he was one of those heroes who did not hesitate in dressing like a lady, and we really salute his dedication and versatility as an actor.
