From Madhuri Dixit to Sushmita Sen: 5 Bollywood actors from the 90s are making a comeback on OTT

OTT has been both a boon and a bane to the Bollywood film industry.

The rise of OTT content, following the coronavirus pandemic-induced lockdowns since 2020, has been both a boon and a bane for the Bollywood film industry. While several blockbuster movies starring stars have fallen flat at the box office, OTT content starring lesser-known actors has fared much better in comparison.

Likewise, several 90s actors who had to fade into mainstream Bollywood films are making new comebacks with OTT content. From Madhuri Dixit to Sushmita Sen, here are five actors who ruled the box office and hearts in the 90s and made successful comebacks with OTT platforms.

Madhuri Dixit

Madhuri Dixit debuted in 1984 and ruled Bollywood until 2001 with several box office hits and critically acclaimed roles. Her thousand watt smile and dancing skills can give any modern day actor a hard time. She made her digital debut with the Netflix family thriller series The Fame Game, directed by Bijoy Nambiar and produced by Karan Johar, in February 2022. She will star in India’s first Amazon Prime Video Original film Maja Ma, which will be released in October.
