1/14

The year 2020 was a bust in many ways. The pandemic forced us to stay at home, mostly, and deprived us of a normal life. But when we had nothing and nowhere to go, we still had art and entertainment to seek comfort in. The world turned to OTT (Over The Top content) as it went online. Movies, shows, music and more were available online and that kept our entertainment quotient, and somewhere also our sanity, in check. Now as we enter 2021 with more caution (and a mask!), Bollywood is ready to welcome us with a list of promising newcomers who will most likely make their big-screen debut this year.



By the way, here's a fun fact: did you know that Indian cinema is the world's largest film industry when it comes to production?! The industry releases over 1,000 films a year, averaging between three and five new releases every week. And with that, many new faces make their debut on the silver screen with fervent hope and prayers to make it big in tinsel town.



In this year of the ‘new normal’, and new beginnings, let’s take a look at the new stars on the horizon.
