The journey to stardom for these Bollywood newcomers wasn't easy

With the recent Bollywood film releases, it is clear that the audience prefers watching relatable and sensible subjects. Content is the King, and with movies like Badhaai Ho, Why Cheat India, Tigers, Raazi and many others, audience has appreciated the efforts put in by the actors and filmmakers. 

While subjects like Raazi and Uri: The Surgical Strike takes us through a patriotic journey evoking the love for our nation, films like Why Cheat India, shed light on the scams run by education-mafia thrive in the country, thereby making us aware of the dark side of the world. 

Besides films, film lovers today are not focused on star-centric films, making it easier for many aspiring actors to make their much-awaited Bollywood debut. The last few months have given many actors an opportunity to shine on the big screen and the best actors (irrespective of if they have been awarded or not) have been applauded for their craft. 

Here are few actors who, with their debut, have ensured their bright future in the film world. 

Sara Ali Khan: It isn't easy to be a star kid in today's time, as one tends to face more pressure, especially with the background and the perception they create even before the release. But one actress, who nailed it with her debut in Bollywood, is Sara Ali Khan. Her debut with Kedarnath was appreciated and she continued to win appreciation with Simmba opposite Ranveer Singh. This young actress, who has delivered one fantastic performance after another, is all set for her third release soon. 

Siddhant Chaturvedi: Gully Boy not only gave a refreshing film to the industry but also brought forth a new face, which is sure to shine in the near future. With MC Sher aka Sidhanth Chaturvedi, Zoya Akhtar introduced a new promising actor. Not many are aware, but this lad made his debut with a YouTube web series Life Sahi Hai. The show eventually streamed its second season on ZEE5. His suave and easy to adapt attitude is something that the audience has recognised and these abilities will definitely take Siddhant long way ahead in his career. 

Shreya Dhanwanthary: It is a known fact that at times, the road to stardom is rocky and one needs to work hard and stay positive to achieve success. One of the few actresses who can prove this is Shreya Dhanwanthary, who delivered an impressive role in Emraan Hashmi starrer film Why Cheat India. Her career started as a model, after which she ventured into regional films, and made her way eventually to Bollywood with Why Cheat India, where she played a character with dual shades. Her ability to entertain the audience in the film was appreciated and she did manage to garner love for her role, Nupur. Besides this, Shreya has also been a part of many web series. 

Mohit Raina: Seldom can actors make an impression with mythological characters. But today, we talk about an actor who touched our lives as Mahadev. The name is Mohit Raina. Not only his work on TV but his Bollywood debut Aditya Dhar's Uri: The Surgical Strike also made a mark with the audience. Mohit, who today has garnered a lot of love and a huge fan base, is on a success spree with many projects in line. His next release is with Dia Mirza in the ZEE5 original series Kaafir, where will be seen as a lawyer investigating a sensitive case. Ever since the release of the trailer, the show has already captured the audience’s interest and is expected to be a hit with digital content lovers. 

Radhika Madan: Transition of an actor from TV to films isn't an easy journey, as they carry a baggage of expectations from fans and filmmakers. Not many have succeeded in this journey, but Radhika Madan has surely made it big. The actress, who is two Bollywood films old, has been loved in Pataakha and Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota. Though the films did not make it big at the Box Office, her distinctive characters were surely loved by the audience, as she tried hard and succeeded in breaking the typical 'Bollywood heroine' image. With her unconventional choices and a strong determination, Radhika definitely has fruitful years ahead in the film industry.
