Celebrities: The ones less Celebrated...

Celebrities: The ones less Celebrated...
Celebrities come in all shape, sizes and reasons…most often the lack of much reason. There are dynasty celebrities (Tusshar Kapoor, Uday Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan). There are self-made (pun intended) ones ala Poonam Pandey. The controversial ones (Dolly Bindra, Rakhee Sawant). 
There are one-hit celebrities: Kumar Gaurav, Navin Nischol, Sanjay Kapoor
There are one-song celebrities: The kaanta-laga girl, Khallas girl, the first Indian Idol (Abhijeet Sawant?)
And then there are one-line celebrities: A.K. Hangal (Itna Sannata kyun hai bhai?), McMohan (J Funny, he didn’t even mouth this line “Arrey O Samba!”) and Iftekhar (Hamare aadmiyon ne tumhe Charon taraf se gher liya hai!). Great character artistes all these. But sadly, their lives will always remain a net sum of these famous one-liners. Nothing more, nothing else.
