It seems like our young pack of actors definitely have things going their way, if we look at their releases lined up for this year and the next. The young Alia Bhatt made waves with her debut film Student of The Year, with a highly vied for banner – Dharma Productions. With the bar already set high, Alia now has two movies – Highway and Two States - lined up for this year and the next, both with giant production houses.
Huma Qureshi, too, who debuted with Gangs of Wasseypur, which won her multiple award nominations, now has a string of movies lined up – D-Day, Shorts and Dedh Ishqiya. Ileana D’Cruz, who made her presence in Bollywood felt with Barfi, can now be seen in the brand new trailers of Phata Poster Nikla Hero. She is currently filming for David Dhawan’s Main Tera Hero. Looking at these long list of movies, it surely shows that the new pack believes in the mantra ‘Make hay while the sun shines’.
Changing that norm is Diana Penty who announced her arrival on the big screen with Cocktail, where she was in the same frame as a premium star cast like Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone. Throughout the film, she didn’t let the audience feel like she was a newcomer. She had begun to prove herself with her debut. However, Diana Penty is not in any rush to flaunt a long list of projects in her kitty. She’s taking her time in making decisions while she continues to read scripts and attend narrations.
It seems like our new kids on the block are not kids anymore. They have grown up and they know what’s best for them. We wish them good luck and look forward to some hardcore Bollywood entertainment in the near future.
