When we watch our favourite actors effortlessly pull-off different characters, everything seems larger than life. We also miss out on the effort that might go behind preparing for these characters. And in some cases, the amount of effort they put in to get cast for these roles, in the first place. They’ve to constantly audition, face rejections and probably have to deal with a lot more.

So, it’s clearly not always as effortless as it seems, and these old audition tapes are proof of it:

1. Vijay Deverakonda

2. Kartik Aaryan

3. Rajkummar Rao

4. R. Madhavan


5. Patralekha

6. Disha Patani

7. Pratik Gandhi


8. Omi Vaidya

These small clips clearly led to great things.
