person entrusted with the launch of Kapoor, but that also did not come to
fruition. Now, he will finally be seen in Sanjay Gupta's Shootout at Wadala. Siddhant, who is also a popular DJ, will be

Poonam Pandey, a controversial model known for daring to
bare, will be making her Bollywood debut with Nasha. Her daring proclamation
that she would bare all in front of the Indian Cricket Team if they won the
2011 World Cup has been her claim to fame. She hasn't done so yet, but did keep a similar promise she made
before the IPL win by SRK's Kolkata Knight Riders. True to her word, she posted
a naked picture of herself on Twitter after the KKR beat out their opponent to clinch the title! Nasha, taglined with "Get Addicted", is an adult flick
directed by Amit Saxena of Jism fame

the least, the man who reached new heights of fame with his character of
Arnav Singh Raizada on the hit television show Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?, actor Barun Sobti also makes a debut into the Indian film industry with the movie Main Aur Mr Right.
Along with Barun, the movie also stars Shenaz Treasurywala and Kavi
Shastri, while it is directed by Adeeb Rais and produced by Pooja
Gujral. Suggestion of a replacement of his character in the show after
his decision of quitting and trying his hand in the film fraternity,
didn't go down well with his fans and for the first time ever a show was
shut down due to an actor leaving! However, no matter how disappointed
fans were to see their favorite show end, they are still very happy for
Barun and can not wait to see him on the big screen!
there you have it! A list of some of the new blood that will be joining
the ranks of Bollywood this year! Which one are you looking forward to
