An actor’s career can take many unexpected turns. Artists’ careers can be made or broken by a single film. An established star’s status can be negatively impacted by the arrival of a new talent. We’ll follow the path of an actor who was once thought to have great potential. This actor rose to fame in his brief career, but it was soon after that he began to be compared to other actors, which had a negative impact on his career. This actor quickly gave up acting and is now managing a multi-million dollar company. Indeed, we are discussing Sumeet Saigal.

In 1987, Sumeet made his Bollywood debut in ‘Insaniyat Ke Dushman‘. Rajkumar Kohli’s multi-starrer turned superhit, and despite a cast that included Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha, Raj Babbar, Dimple Kapadia, Anita Raj, and Amjad Khan, Sumeet made an impact. Sumeet began receiving more film opportunities after ‘Insaniyat Ke Dushman’, but he was mostly cast in supporting roles and as the second lead. The career of Sumeet was impacted by this gifted superstar.

Govinda debuted in Bollywood a year prior to ‘Insaniyat Ke Dushman’ with the popular movie ‘Ilzaam’ (1986). Following his debut, Sumeet began to draw comparisons with Govinda.

Subsequently, Sumeet featured in a number of films, including Pati Patni Aur Tawaif (1990), Lashkar (1989), Imaandaar (1987), Param Dharam (1987), and Gunaah (1993). Sumeet stopped acting after 30 films; Saajan Ki Baahon Mein (1995) was his final film role.

Sumeet established the production company Sumeet Arts after quitting acting and dubbing South films into Hindi. The horror movie ‘Rokkkk‘ was also produced by Sumeet in 2010. Prior to that, Sumeet also dabbled in directing, helming a music video for the 2007 film ‘Red: The Dark Side.’
