This summer Bollywood is filled with exciting newcomers. Tara Sutaria and Ananya Panday in Student of the Year 2, Rakul Preet Singh in De De Pyaar De are among the few newcomers that we can be excited about. There are also a few other newcomers that we can look forward to in their upcoming films.
1. Karan Kapadia in Blank
A daring convention-denying debut by an industry child Karan Kapadia, nephew of Dimple Kapadia, cousin of Twinkle Khanna, plays a suicide bomber in his debut film. Given a chance would Karan have preferred a more conventional debut? No, he says firmly, never! Releasing: May 3.
2. Ananya Panday in Student Of The Year 2
Actor Chunky Panday’s daughter is pert, pretty and confident. She is being launched by star-maker Karan Johar who earlier launched Alia Bhatt in Student Of The Year. Releasing: May 10.
3. Tara Sutaria in Student of The Year 2
Smoking-hot this newcomer is all set to conquer Bollywood on her own terms. She is entirely her own person and isn’t afraid to speak her mind. Now if only those killer looks can be matched by her acting skills. Releasing: May 10.
4. Rakul Preet Singh in De De Pyaar De
A big name in the South she has so far not had much luck in Hindi films. Her first two Hindi films Yaariyan and Aiyaary (two many ‘y’s in her film titles, perhaps) did nothing for her. Rakul now teams up with Ajay Devgan for a naughty romcom that should do the trick. Releasing: May 17.
5. Dulquer Salmaan in The Zoya Factor
The Malayalam superstar’s Hindi debut in Karwaan went unnoticed. Never mind. He is all set to make yet another try. With the beautiful Sonam Kumar who catapulted Fawad Khan to (alas, short-lived) fame in Bollywood, Dulquer is all set to claim Bollywood. Releasing: 14 June.
6. Karan Deol In Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas
Sunny Deol’s son and Dharmendra’s grandson (not to mention Bobby and Abhay Deol’s nephew) is said to be an absolute natural camera chameleon. Watch out. Releasing: 19 July.
