Things change with time and so do people! Same goes with our Ballewood stars. Call it make-overs or just the glow of success, some of them have undergone massive changes as far as their looks are concerned! While there are a few who worked out day and night to reduce that extra flab, some added a few kilos to look more presentable. For some, their improved sartorial choices and hair styles have gone a long way to give them that starry magnetism that every actor in the industry so badly desires!

Here is presenting the FIVE most noticeable transformations in Punjabi film industry. See below in the pics how the superstars of today have evolved over time! 

"Kal Aur Ayenge Nagmon Ki Khilti Kaliyan Chunnewaale
Mujhese Behetar Kahenewaale Tumse Behetar Sunnewaale
Kal Koi Mujhko Yaad Karey Kyun Koi Mujhko Yaad Karey
Masroof Zamana Mere Liye Kyun Waqt Apna Barbad Karey
Main Pal Do Pal Ka Shayar Hoon….."

The date of 06 December 1988 will forever be etched in our memories as a ‘Black Day’ for Punjabi cinema, when its shining star Veerendra was shot dead by unidentified men during the shooting of the film ‘Jatt Te Zameen’.  He single-handedly propelled the Punjabi film industry to its golden period of the 70s and the 80s. It will be pertinent to mention that he was also the cousin of Bollywood superstar Dharmendra who whole-heartedly supported him and was seen doing cameos in several of his films.

In Punjabi film industry’s illustrious history, sadly there have been only a few films that have left an indelible mark on the viewers’ conscience. But, Chann Pardesee (1981) is a huge exception. Not as far as its technically superior production is concerned, but also some towering performances matched with an intelligibly believable storyline. Never before and never after have we seen such raw talent on the silver screen with some memorable performances in the shape of Amrish Puri (Jagirdar), Kulbhushan Kharbanda (Nek), Raj Babbar (Laali), Tulsi (Om Puri), Rama Vij (Kammo).
