As Bollywood’s current crop of emerging stars & the established superstars continue to entertain, quite a few young ones from film families are all set to make their debut on the big screen. We take a look at those star kids that will take the box office test soon.
1. Harshvardhan Kapoor & Saiyami Kher
Co-starring with Saiyami Kher, grand daughter of yesteryear’s actress Usha Kiran, Harshvardhan Kapoor is already getting noticed within Bollywood for his suave looks and confidence. He makes an unusual yet promising debut in the period love story, ‘Mirziyan’. His co-star Saiyami is a ex-Kingfisher model and looks the part. Both urban kids though have chosen a rather traditional, classical debut.
Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, the film is a musical that also features this young actor doing quite a few hero like things. He rides horses, romances poetically and pines for his lover! Sounds like a perfect celluloid start for Anil Kapoor’s son & Sonam Kapoor’s brother right?
2. Sayesha Saigal
Her petite frame & innocent, beautiful eyes had shutterbugs clicking away at the launch of Dilip Kumar’s autobiography. Next thing we knew, she was making her debut opposite Ajay Devgan in his directorial venture, ‘Shivaay’. Ajay is going out of his way to make this film look extraordinary and can’t stop raving about the impressive screen test Sayesha had delivered. Of course, we can’t wait to see her onscreen in 2016!
3. Athiya Shetty & Sooraj Pancholi
Sooraj Pancholi has made news for all the wrong reasons recently as his name came up in the Jiah Khan suicide case. Sooraj had dated Jiah at some point.
As his debut film Hero heads towards release, there is a lot of interest in his hero like debut opposite Sunil Shetty’s daughter, Athiya. A remake of Subhash Ghai’s iconic love story, the film is a typical commercial entertainer with dollops of filmy drama.
With Salman Khan co-producing this one, chances are Sooraj & Athiya get off to a heroic start in the competitive Bollywood space.
