Yuvika Chaudhary


Back in the mid-2000s, Shah Rukh Khan was at his peak in terms of his stardom. The actor was delivering hits left, right, and centre. Even his cameos were enough to guarantee a film some eyeballs. At this juncture, starting your career opposite him in the year’s highest-grosser can be considered the start of a great career. For this actress, this happened, paving the way for a promising career, before it all fell apart.

The actress who was Shah Rukh’s heroine and then gave 12 flops

Yuvika Chaudhary was an aspiring actress from western Uttar Pradesh, who came to Mumbai after winning Zee Cine Stars Ki Khoj in 2004. This got her a break in the hit TV show Astitva...Ek Prem Kahani, and she also appeared in a Himesh Reshammiya music video in 2006. But her career turned for the good when she played a supporting role in Farah Khan’s 2007 hit Om Shanti Om. In the film, Yuvika played an actress named Dolly, who was cast in a film opposite Shah Rukh’s Om Kapoor. The film was the year’s highest grosser but all the accolades went to SRK, Farah, and the film’s other debutant – the lead star Deepika Padukone. Sadly, this was the first and last hit of Yuvika’s film career. The actress then appeared in a dozen flops, including Naughty @ 40, The Shaukeens, and Veerey Ki Wedding.
