All of us at one point of time in our lives have felt that we want to be in the limelight.
Getting all the attention and giving autographs!
Following are some true stories, that led some ordinary people to gain fame in a very short span of time.

1)Priya Prakash Varrier

Young Malayalam sensation Priya Prakash Varrier is clearly the reason why the discussion about national crushes has come back into the limelight. The video of the song Manikya Malaraya Poovi from her debut film has gone viral thanks to her flirtatious eye-brow raising act catapulting her to overnight stardom. The video has received over 4 million views on Youtube within just 24 hours of its release and garnered Priya herself over 1 million followers on Instagram.

2)Disha Patani

Her name might not sound as obscure anymore, but Disha’s story is very similar to Priya’s in that they both started their careers in South India. But Disha’s claim to fame was her commercial for Cadbury chocolates that had Indian men fall head over heels for her charms. She quickly capitalised on that fame to bag some juicy projects in Hindi movies, like M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story and Baaghi 2.

3)Saima Hussain Mir

In a true case of how nearly anyone can become famous overnight, Saima Hussain Mir became everyone’s obsession after she was spotted in the background of Shahrukh Khan’s selfie. The student from Pune was hounded with marriage proposals as well as offers for modelling and acting once her identity was discovered.
