Jan 232018

Bollywood is an interesting industry. Hopes, aspirations, and dreams are galore but very few get a chance to make it big in the tinsel town. 2017 wasn’t a great year for Bollywood but 2018 brings hopes not just in terms of good films but also in the category of fresh faces and new talent.

While a lot has been spoken about Sara Ali Khan, Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor’s debut, very less is known about some talents who are all set to make their big debut this year. These are those who have come a long way on their own without any big name or a godfather to launch them on the silver screen.

This year will be full of raw talents from outside the industry who aim to entertain us and make their space in this big, glamorous town.

Here is a look at the fresh talent who are waiting for their big day. Making it to the list are some model-turned-actors, TV stars and newbies who have landed here out of sheer love for acting and passion.

Known for her roles in soap operas, Mrunal Thakur will debut in a lead role in Tabrez Noorani and David Womark’s 2018 film ‘Love Sonia’. The film also features Richa Chadda and Freida Pinto in lead roles. That’s quite a combination and a great start we must say!

Varun Dhawan’s ‘October’ is a much talked-about film but it is Banita Sandhu who will be seen along with him. While most people have to wait before they get a huge chance like this, Banita is making her big debut with Shoojit Sircar’s film. The 18-year-old actress is an NRI and has been acting since the age of 11. Before this, she was seen in Doublemint ad commercial.

Well, she made her Bollywood debut with ‘Roar’ but not many know about her. She is an Indo-Canadian dancer and model who will be seen in Sameer Soni’s ‘My Birthday Song’ in a full-fledged role. It is a psychological thriller which features Sanjay Suri as the protagonist and the trailer has received some positive response. We have seen Nora in various special appearances or dance numbers on movies, but seeing her playing a pivotal role would be fun.

What should I say? We keep speaking all the time as it is. Now for me to write and fill your mind, when you’re own thoughts are probably stuck, lost, numb or just utterly chaotic… would be exactly the job of a writer. But my mind too has been restless. Full of doubts and chaos and noise. Sometimes just hollow actually. The kind of hollow in the chest that you can’t cry out, or let out, fill up, express or even coat in some tears. No, it stays. Like it’s going to be there for good. I stopped fighting it. Recently. Only recently. When I found out how important this hollow was for me. I shout into it every now and then and the echo reminds me of my existence in a spectacular way. It’s not an adventure out in the woods, but one within me. It’s a gradual, slow and steady acceptance of my demons. Of my flaws and my errors and my misgivings and my innate fallible nature. I will desist from using lofty poetic terms like flight and freedom here because I want to keep it as dark as it is. Its dark, yes but it’s sweet. It’s honey tasted in the dark. I don’t know if that means anything, but I don’t know if this hollow means anything beyond reminding me of the resonance of nothing inside me. As everything lives, nothing too breathes. And it’s illicit. It’s within. It’s here that the birth of you and me occurs. Inside our dark. It’s very kind. Actually. The big abyss. It’s takes you in from one end and let’s you out at the other. Like telling you; it’s not always important to be just feeling and running and chasing and even struggling. Sometimes it’s utterly important to be unimportant. Within yourself. That’s when you start the truest love. That’s not the beginning of life as such. But that’s the hug of that utmost despair and sadness and the warmth under its cheek. And then I begin walking back. The hollow and the sea both inside me. I walk in the middle. The good, the bad and the ugly. Sometimes choosing, sometimes chosen. Mostly, just struggling to remain true. #writer #writing #writer #words #wordporn #love #writeup #shorts #life #philosophy #void #acceptance #mind #aspire #dream #hollow #actor #artist #art #literature #poet #poetry #poem #zkd
