From Sara Ali Khan and Janhvi Kapoor to Radhika Madan and Dulquer Salmaan, there were many memorable debuts this year. Here are 10 most talked about newcomers who were launched in Bollywood amid much hype.
Malayalam film star Dulquer Salmaan made a remarkable debut in Karwaan, which was essentially an Irrfan Khan vehicle and had the actor playing at the top of his powers. The moody road trip film was the perfect launch for Dulquer whose understated performance won over the audience. As a man caught in the daily rut who is coming to terms with his father’s death and the baggage of that relationship, Dulquer was the perfect foil to Irrfan’s performance. Another actor who broke into Hindi films with Karwaan was Mithila Palkar, who is known for her performances in webseries such as Little Things. Her character was a millennial and way more full of life than her two co-travellers on this road trip, she brought freshness to the film.
Janhvi Kapoor made her Bollywood debut in bittersweet circumstances. Her first film came out months after the death of her mother, actor Sridevi. The star kid had a special connect with the audience — they not just waited to witness her acting talent but to also look for traces of her late mother. While the moviegoers could not ignore her peculiar accent in the trailer, her fresh face and her slight resemblance with Sridevi did enough to pull them to the theatres. HT reviewer Raja Sen called her “better in scenes with typical Bollywood arches” but said that she “fails whenever it’s about enacting pain.” Despite getting mixed response, Dhadak emerged a hit with lifetime collections of over Rs 70 crore.
Sara Ali Khan in Kedarnath.
Sara Ali Khan, daughter of Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, made an assured debut in Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath. Not only her performance but her promotional appearances made news for her confidence and screen presence. Her looks and nuances unintentionally reminded the audience of her mother. Her debut got a mixed response from the critics but worked fine at the box office with collections of around Rs 50 crore in 10 days. She will be seen later this year in Rohit Shetty’s Simmba opposite Ranveer Singh.
Aayush Sharma had the perfect launch a debutant can hope for. The brother-in-law of Salman Khan made his debut in a love story but the film failed to enthuse both the critics and the fans. Not only did the film fall flat due to an unimpressive script and poor direction, Aayush’s acting skills were also questioned.
Banita Sandhu is better known as the October girl as she made her debut with this Shoojit Sircar film with Varun Dhawan in the lead. The newcomer was liked by the audience as she brought a whiff of freshness to the world of films. Though she had little to do in her debut with her character in coma, she did convey a lot with her eyes.
