If you grew up watching Bollywood films in the ’90s, chances are that your first crush was a popular face from the hit Bollywood films that released around that time.
We ask a few young actors about the stars that caused their hearts to skip a beat.
I have always had a big crush on Hrithik Roshan, ever since Kaho Na Pyaar Hai (2000) released. As a matter of fact, I still have a huge collection of his photographs that I had collected back in the day.
During a recent chat show, Shahid had mentioned that his first Bollywood crush was actor Raveena Tandon. He was smitten by her after he saw her dance in the song ‘Tip tip barsa paani’ from Mohra (1994).
My first crush was Kareena (Kapoor Khan). When I met her for the first time, I realised that she looks even better without make-up. However, there was no one reason why I had a crush on her. She has just always been a spectacular woman.
I had a massive crush on Juhi Chawla when she was working in Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988) with Aamir (Khan, Imran’s uncle). I had even proposed to her during the shooting of the movie. It wasn’t just a random proposal — it was one with a ring and all that jazz.
Preity Zinta was my school-time celebrity crush. My friend used to have her poster in his room, even though it was considered uncool to flaunt actors’ poster on your wall. She was also the first celebrity I had interviewed live on TV. It was quite surreal.
