As far as new talent is concerned, 2019 gave us actors as varied as Siddhant Chaturvedi, Meezaan Jaffrey and Ananya Panday. This year too has its own share of new acting talent to look forward to. And here they are.
Riva Kishan-Priyaank Sharma: They are chips off the old block with a talented parent each to pump up their credentials. Riva is Ravi Kishan’s spontaneous fiery daughter whereas Priyaank has a certain gravity about him, just like his dignified talented mother Padmini Kolhapure. Together they promise to be fire and ice on screen in Sab Kushal Mangal.
Shalini Pandey: Arjun Reddy’s softspoken
co-star to Vijay Deverakonda is all set for her Hindi debut opposite Ranveer Singh in Jayeshbhai Jordaar. The film will be co-produced by Yash Raj Films. It can’t get posher than this.
Aalia Furniturewalla in Jawani Jaaneman: Pooja Bedi’s daughter Aalia conveys the kind of chic magic that we saw the other Alia create in Student Of The Year. Is this Aalia going to be as formidable in her screen appearance as the previous one? We will soon know. Apparently, the girl has stood up to seasoned star-actors like Saif and Tabu in her debut film with not a trace of self-consciousness.
Reem Shaikh: A television actress Reem Shaikh gets a dream launch in the biopic Gul Makai where she plays the youngest Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai.
Rukshar Dhillon: Ebullient, unstoppable… Rukhsar Dhillon promises to be the lal mirchi of 2020. Along with Vicky Kaushal’s brother Sunny who has already been seen giving a confident performance alongside Akshay Kumar in Gold, this film could catapult this pair into an enviable top spot with Bhangra Paa Le.
Manushi Chillar: After a prolonged period of deliberation, Miss World 2017 has been roped in to play the lead in Chandrapraksh Diwedi’s lavish historical costume drama Prithiviraj that stars the invincible Akshay Kumar as her co-star. Safe landing.
