I'm happy actresses in their 30s are continuing to succeed. It shows that Bollywood has evolved.
But when it comes to promising young faces, there's a huge gap. I think for the first time in decades, BW lacks fresh new debutantes with promise. There's not a single promising young actor/actress on the horizon. Is it only to do with nepotism? I don't think so. There must be some other reason why, but I can't pinpoint it.
What happened to the electric debuts of say a Hrithik Roshan or a Deepika Padukone? When the whole nation went crazy over them? The collective hype, the frenzy, the excitement?
WHERE ARE THE NEW FACES?
If the Archies are an indicator, it's just sad because they lack substance. Not a single one of them stands out.
If this is how things are going to play out, I see Bollywood fizzling out. There's no other option. Ageing Khans cannot keep playing lovers, and Alia Bhatt cannot star in every alternate film.
When will the aging Khans gracefully transition into playing wise mentors, passing on their wisdom to the next generation? Alia Bhatt, with her infectious energy, takes on the role of a producer, nurturing young talents and creating a wave of refreshing stories?
Any answers, folks?
I don't see the need for ageing khans to transition to playing mentors esp when their movies are literally beating records left right & centre (pathaan)
Why would we even expect that when they are literally bringing in the money..do we ask Tom Cruise that..who is even older..61..and still playing lead and rightly so coz look at the crowd he pulls in
As for the debutants..DP & HR are a rare case & i agree that level of craze in debutants..i doubt we will ever see again
Look at the list of most anticipated movies of this year. More than 90% movies are by the older actors like Akshay Kumar, shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Sunny Deol etc. And the so called younger actors are still not confident enough to clash with them. But if you go back to the 90s, you will see how the then new comers were going head on with the then established stars and beginning to win ,eventually taking over the box office completely by the early 2000. That kind of transformation hasn’t happened yet. We badly need a new crop of talent.
