Aspiring starlets are always warned that the industry chews up pretty young things and spits them out if they are not careful. One moment, a heroine is hotter than Sivakasi in summer and the next moment she has melted away to nothingness, like the wicked witch of the west from Wizard of Oz. These unfortunate souls leave a barely remembered hit song or movie behind.

Here is a look at some of our heroines who arrived with a bang and left without so much as a flutter of delicately placed fake lashes.

Nisha Kothari
Amoga aka Nisha Kothari
Pretty and petite Amoga with a charming inability to hold the drapes of her sari in place, safety pins strategically placed notwithstanding made quite a splash in her debut film, Jay Jay opposite Madhavan directed by Charan. The songs were a big hit and were played repeatedly on TV, wherein she performed her cutesy dance moves. The verdict was that she couldn't do much in the emoting department but her good looks would see her through.

Alas, this was not to be. That was the last we saw her in Tamil cinema save for an item number she did with Jiiva for Kacheri Arambam. She headed to the greener pastures of Bollywood, where she was Ram Gopal Varma’s muse for a period. She was seen in a couple of his films, but was lambasted so severely by the critics, especially for her modern-day interpretation of Hema Malini’s immortal Basanti in Sholay, that she ducked under the surface and has not been sighted since.
