Wooden Actors

A Wooden Spoon is what a guy who comes last in a race gets.. some actors in my view who need to get this for their acting chops-

Kishan Kumar- this was a relative (son?) of the famous Gulshan Kumar and exclusively appeared in movies produced by him.

Kumar Gaurav- he had only one expression for all situations, and hence went out as fast as he came into films.

Ok, (deep breath)- Manoj Kumar, Rajendra Kumar (mere naam par batta), and,...the guy who was with Simi Garewal in the marvelous song Chalte Chalte mere yeh geet yaad rakhna in the film Chalte Chalte..don't even know his name.

Karisma Kapoor and Harish Kumar, in her debut film Prem Qaidi, seemed to compete for the Wooden Spoon. She improved, and (thankfully) we did not hear of him again.

And in contrast, we have great ones like Pankaj Kapur, Om Puri, Irrfan Khan, Naseeruddin Shah, ...
