5 Potential Stars Expected To Hit Bigtime In 2021



They are  young  and raring to go. In spite of proving their talent they  are yet to find big success  in  Hindi cinema. That  may change sooner  rather than later. The 5  super-talented  semi-newcomers waiting to break through.

1.     Mithila Palkar:  She held her own with two of  the finest  contemporary actors Irrfan Khan and  Dulquer Salman in Akarsh  Khurana’s underrated Karwan. She now  holds her own  with two of the finest actresses  of our country Tanve Azmi and Kajol in  Renuka Shahaen’s  Tribhanga.What’s keeping Mithila Palkar from being noticed by and in Bollywood? Will Tribhanga  do the trick for this  bundle of sponteaneous charm?

2.     Adarsh Gourav: I  noticed him  4 years  ago as Manoj Bajpai’s recalcitrant son in the   little-seen film Rukh. He  held his own admirably. Then I was dismayed to see him play bit roles  in Deepa Mehta’s Leila  and Sridevi’s last film Mom . In both his  natural aptitudes  were strangulated by the monstrous marginalization that  has killed may promising careers. Would Adarsh discover the  success he  deserves after the author-backed central role  in Ramin Bahrani’s The White Tiger?  Adarsh would find it hard to  break through  into the  international  cinema  with those culture-specific looks.But Bollywood should make  a place for him.

3.     Akshay  Oberoi:  From playing the sugary  sweet lover-boy  in Rajshri  Productions’ Issi Life Mein  to  turning into a vicious drug peddler  and pimp in the webseries  High, Akshay,  cousin of Vivek Oberoi, has discovered a mean  streak in  his personality. He will now be seen as the antagonist  in  Subhash Kapoor Madam Chief Minister. To see the  angelic loverboy turn  into this  leery lout, wonder what Sooraj Barjatya would say!

4.     Siddhanth Chaturvedi: He  made a big impact as the rapper Sher Singh im Gully Boy. What happened to  Chaturvedi after that? Industry folks tell me  this promising newcomer was acting too  high and pricey after Gully Boy and was letting Karan  Johar take all his career decisions. Would Shakun Batra’s  untitled film with Deepika Padukone turn the tide for Chaturvedi?

5.     Amit Sadh: For   a decade now  Amit has been struggling to get out of the shadows.He  has told  me  of the horrific humiliations he has  suffered in this industry. But  now the worst  is behind Amit. He  is  all set  to strike  out  this year  with his portrayal  of Major Deependra Singh Senger  in Zid. Just goes to  show, you can’t keep talent down for too long.
