Bollywood celebs who are under 30 and in demand
Catch them young and watch them grow is not just ‘a’ phrase in showbiz. People have often accused Karan Johar of nepotism but no one can deny the fact that the filmmaker has an eye for talent and has the ability to nurture them perfectly.
While Karan has mostly spotted talent from the Bollywood circle, there are some young guns who have come up from outside the hood and have grabbed the opportunity given to them with both hands! So here are 7 Bollywood stars who are under the age of 30 and are in demand!
Alia Bhatt – Karan Johar singed Alia for SOTY when she was just 19 years old! Though she was raw and slightly chubby, Karan was determined to sign her as he saw “absolutely great potential.” Today, Alia, who will turn 26 on March 15, is already the No.1 actress. Her performance has been applauded in films such as Highway, Udta Punjab, Raazi and the recently-released Gully Boy. Apart from this, she also rocked the box office with Student Of The Year, the Badrinath series and Two States.
Sara Ali Khan – Following Alia, though at a great distance, is Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan. Sara faced some initial hiccups but once she made her debut on Koffee With Karan, the star kid just won everyone’s heart with her real and bindass talk. While she displayed her acting mettle in her debut movie Kedarnath, she was the perfect ‘decorative’ item for Ranveer in Simmba. Nevertheless, this 23-year-old has what it takes to make it bigger, provided she remains focused for the next couple of years.
Ishaan Khattar – The younger brother of Shahid Kapoor, Ishaan Khattar has all that it takes to become a successful actor. The 23-year old actor got his first big break in acclaimed director Majid Majidi’s Beyond The Clouds which was greatly appreciated. His second film Dhadak was his Bollywood debut with another debutante Janhvi Kapoor. The movie was well-received by the audience and the hopes are high on this young talent.
Janhvi Kapoor – Janhvi Kapoor, the late Sridevi, and Boney Kapoor’s older daughter, too, has the makings of a superstar. Born with the proverbial silver spoon, this Dharma Productions’ protégée displayed ‘star’ qualities in her maiden venture Dhadak, which was co-produced by Dharma. The actress already signed 2 projects, biopic of Gunjan Saxena (the IAF’s first female combat pilot, who took part in the 1999 Kargil War) and Karan Johar’s Takht. Fortunate to have Karan as her Godfather, this youngster has the potential to scale greater heights.
Bhumi Pednekar – A Aditya Chopra find Bhumi Pednekar has won accolades for each and every movie in which she has worked, right from her debut film Dum Laga Ke Haisha to Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan. Her turn as a domestic help in last year’s anthology Lust Stories, which was screened on an OTT platform, was also widely appreciated. Her next, Sonchiraiya is based on the dacoits that terrorize the Indian heartlands.
Kartik Aryan – The boy from Gwalior made his presence felt from his debut film itself. His super-hit monologue bashing women is mouthed by his fans. But 2018 finally proved to be his year as his movie Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety gave him his first 100-crore film. From women falling for his cute dimples to Sara Ali Khan wanting to date him, the 28-year old has definitely come a long way. His next movie is Luka Chupi with Kriti Sanon and if rumors are to believed he has also signed Love Aaj Kal 2 opposite Sara Ali Khan!
Siddhant Chaturvedi – The handsome hunk has impressed everyone with his brilliant performance in Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy. But this is not the first time that Siddhanth has faced the camera as he was first seen in Amazon’s Inside Edge where he managed to impressed the critics with his stellar performance. The 25-year old has still a long way to go, but this is definitely a great start for his career.
