Suniel Shetty
Suniel Shetty was signed as the leading man by Pahlaj Nihalani for the film Ek Aur Faulad, but it was dropped due to creative differences, but Shetty started off his film career with the film Balwaan with Divya Bharti as the leading lady in 1992. The film surprisingly done moderate business. His second release was Waqt Hamara Hai with Akshay Kumar which also met success. His big brother role in Pehchaan along with Saif Ali Khan, Shilpa Shirodkar and Madhoo also done well at the box office. 1994 was the best year for stabilizing him as the action hero. Anth paired with Somy Ali and Dilwale with Ajay Devgan and Raveena Tandon became success followed by blockbuster Mohra once again with Akshay Kumar. Shetty done a comic role for the first time much before director Priyadarshan roped in for comic roles later with Gopi Kishan, the remake of Tamil hit Avasara Police 100 written and directed by K. Bhagyaraj also became a success, but his last release of 1994 Hum Hain Bemisaal with Akshay Kumar done only average business. His four releases of 1995, Surakshaa, Raghuveer, Gaddaar and Takkar did average business and he played the anti hero for the first time in Gaddaar and pitted against Naseeruddin Shah in Takkar along with Sonali Bendre. 1996 was a disappointing year for him as most of his films Vishwasghaat, Shastra, Rakshak, Ek Tha Raja, Krishna and Sapoot performed below par, while in 1997 he was appreciated for his performance in the war epic blockbuster Border and Bhai released on Diwali was a success despite coinciding with Shahrukh Khan's Dil To Pagal Hai.
