Every year, there are hopes pinned on the bigwigs of the industry to change the face of Indian cinema and raise the bar. But along with them, it’s the newcomers who everyone looks forward to. Whether it’s the beautiful young girls or the macho studs, they are dubbed as rookies to super stardom. The year 2014 promises to be exciting. Some star kids and some rank outsiders, it seems to be a mixed bag of sheer entertainment…
For months, it was speculated that either Aamir Khan or Subhash Ghai would launch Jackie Shroff’s son, Tiger. But it was finally Sajid Nadiadwala who roped him in for Heropanti. With a striking face, a great body and acting genes, Tiger is expected to roar in 2014. Interestingly, the young body fanatic trained Aamir Khan to get that sculpted body in Dhoom:3. Three decades ago, Jackie Shroff debuted with Hero and became a star overnight. History is about to repeat itself.
When you have cousins like Karisma Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor, the spotlight is not far from you. Very few knew of Armaan Jain (son of Reema Jain) until his debut Hindi film was announced. Reports suggest that the film will be a Saif Ali Khan production and Armaan will star opposite Southern siren, Deeksha Seth.
After a long hiatus, Suneel Darshan got back to producing films. This time to launch his son, Shiv, with Karle Pyaar Karle opposite Miss India, Hasleen Kaur. Thanks to his good looks and fantastic body, young girls are already going gaga over him. Now his future in films will depend on his choices.
He has already made headlines for all the wrong reasons. Even though his involvement in the Jiah Khan suicide case is still being jostled around in court, Suraj Pancholi is geared to make a splash on the big screen with the remake of the1983 hit, Hero. The remake is being directed by Nikhil Advani and Suraj is paired opposite Suneil Shetty’s daughter, Athiya. Before that, Suraj had assisted Sanjay Leela Bhansali in Guzaarish and Kabir Khan in Ek Tha Tiger. Time will tell whether the son of Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab will emerge from the eclipse and shine forth.
From being a background dancer in item songs to being Salman Khan’s lead in Jai Ho, Daisy Shah’s life looks like a fairy tale. Wait, it also sounds like the bound script of Rangeela. In the past, Daisy has been an assistant to choreographer Ganesh Acharya and worked in a few films down South.
Here’s one more addition to the list of dishy guys coming into our films from Pakistan. Imran Abbas makes his debut in Vikram Bhatt’s Creature 3D opposite Bipasha Basu. Even before his film has released, he has made tabloid headlines. Gossip mongers went on an overdrive alleging an affair between Imran and Bipasha. Good looks, a huge fan base abroad and link-ups… This one is pure masala!
He’s to the manner born. Being Anil Kapoor’s son, Harshvardhan had all the frills of a high-end lifestyle. But films didn’t come easy to him. He worked hard, learnt the ropes of filmmaking and is finally making his debut with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Mirza Sahiba.
She’s a whiff of fresh air. Even though she’s Suneil Shetty’s daughter, the young girl has kept a low-profile. The year 2014 marks the beginning of her tinsel town dreams as she debuts with Nikhil Advani’s remake of Hero opposite Suraj Pancholi. Athiya will reprise the role, which was earlier played by Meenakshi Sheshadri. Hero made Meenakshi a superstar. Athiya’s chances too seem strong.
She gained popularity with her television shows Sapna Babul Ka… Bidaai, Ram Milaayi Jodi and Junoon. This was followed by her controversial stint in the Bigg Boss house and her subsequent marriage and divorce with actor Ali Merchant. Leaving all that behind, Sara Khan is now ready for her first full-fledged big screen outing with Total Siyappa. The film stars Ali Zafar and Yaami Gautam in the lead roles while Sara has a significant role in it.
