There was a time when music videos were much in rage and they had much more than just hot girls, parties, and pubs. Back in the 90s, music videos got sold in large numbers and featuring in the videos was a dream come true for lesser-known models and dancers. Your favorite Bollywood stars have also gone through their struggling days and the perfection you see in them today is the result of the hard work they have done in yester years. Watch out for 10 Bollywood stars who appeared in music videos, 9 will surprise you.
1. Deepika Padukone in Naam Hai Tera Tera (Himesh Reshammiya)
Apart from being a gem in the modeling world, Deepika grabbed much attention in Himesh’s music video. It was the time when Himesh was a music sensation and it is also believed that Farah Khan had noticed Deepika in the video and that’s how Om Shanti Om fell in her kitty.
2. Shah Rukh Khan in Kya Khoya Kya Paya (Jagjit Singh)
The soul-stirring voice of Jagjit Singh and the valuable words of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, this ghazal made us see our superstar in a different avatar. Although he had done tons of films by this time, a philosophical SRK totally won our hearts and the ghazal’s deep thought left an impact on the audience.
3. Bipasha Basu in Tu Kab Ye Janegi (Sonu Nigam)
Dusky beauty Bipasha had already made a name as an established model and when she starred in pop sensation Sonu Nigam’s video, it gave her even more, attention. Bipasha sizzled in a red strappy dress long before making us sweat in Ajnabee.
4. Malaika Arora Khan in Gur Naal Ishq Mitha (Bally Sagoo)
The song we still tend to dance upon at marriage functions and parties had the hot and sizzling Malaika Arora Khan where she was seen making a transition from a firangi to desi avatar while attending her friend’s Punjabi wedding.
5. Milind Soman in Made In India (Alisha Chinai)
Girls went gaga over the now Ironman Milind Soman after seeing him in the princely avatar in Alisha Chinai’s ‘Made In India’. He not only wooed Chinai in the music video but also made the girls scream out loud with his chiseled body and killer looks.

7. Shahid Kapoor in Aankhon Mein Tera Hi Chehra (Aryans)
The song every kid from the 90s can relate to, ‘aankhon mein’ was one of the numbers we played on repeat mode. A super-excited teenage Shahid madly in love with a girl was seen in the music video. His enthusiasm and cuteness totally won our hearts.
8. Ayesha Takia in Meri Chunar Udd Udd Jaye (Falguni Pathak)
We definitely saw her as a kid in the ‘complan’ advertisement alongside Shahid Kapoor but this music video fetched her some much-needed attention. Based on two lovers, Takia played the role of the lead guy’s love interest.
9. John Abraham in Chupke Chupke (Pankaj Udhas)
We have heard innumerable melodies by the ghazal maestro but no one knew that the barely known model John Abraham who had featured in Chupke Chupke would become a sexy Bollywood star. Sporting a floppy hairstyle and dimples to die for, John is oh-so-cute in the video.
10. Vidya Balan in Kabhi Aana Tu Meri Gali (Euphoria)
The actress played the role of a simple girl about to get married. Vidya garnered much attention and stunned the audience with her simplicity and charm. After nearly three years, she finally made her Bollywood debut with Parineeta.
