Bollywood has produced a number of talented handsome hunks who have wooed audiences for ages. From Feroz Khan to Dharmendra, from Vinod Khanna to Rajesh Khanna and from Akshay Kumar to Hrithik Roshan, Hindi cinema has been home to men who ooze sexuality. After the Khan trinity — Aamir, Salman and Shah Rukh — Ranbir from Hindi cinema’s first family is already on the threshold of becoming the next superstar. While many have already crowned him as the latest industry heavyweight, here’s taking a quick glance at some of the newest kids on the block who look incredibly promising:
One of the most under-rated actors from the gen-next lot, Shahid Kapoor took one and all by storm with his portrayal of 'Haider' in the namesake film. Shahid did a number of films but only a few turned out to be blockbusters. The actor has experimented with a variety of roles and has succeeded in coming across as a fine actor. His chemistry with Vishal Bharadwaj is so well crafted that whenever the duo meet, a super-hit film is what they deliver.
Sushant Singh Rajput
After becoming a household name with Zee TV’s ‘Pavitra Rishta’, Sushant Singh Rajput took a big leap and entered the world of celluloid with ‘Kai Po Che!’. The film, which was Abhishek Kapoor’s adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s ‘The 3 Mistakes of My Life’ saw the emergence of a new star. Sushant will be seen in Yash Raj Films’ ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’, opposite Parineeti Chopra and Vaani Kapoor. He featured in Aamir Khan’s ‘PK’. Filmmaker Dibakar Bannerjee has roped in Sushant to essay the role of Byomkesh Bakshi in his next and the hunk of an actor will also be seen in Shekhar Kapur's 'Paani'.
Son of director David Dhawan, Varun announced his arrival in the world of films with Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year’. The very dashing actor has several endorsement deals in his kitty and has become hugely popular among college-goers. The actor was seen in ‘Main Tera Hero’, 'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania' as the a typical Hindi film hero. But the young actor is all set to send shivers down the spine of many as Raghu in 'Badlapur'.
Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year’ introduced the very talented Sidharth Malhotra. Despite making a debut along with two other newcomers, Sidharth did well to make his presence felt. He was seen in ‘Hasee toh Phasee’ alongside Parineeti Chopra but it was ‘Ek Villian’ that helped him evolve as an actor.
Son of producer Boney Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor stole the show with his debut film ‘Ishaqzaade’ garnering rave reviews. Hailing from a filmi family, Arjun has acting in his genes. He has followed in the footsteps of his uncle Anil Kapoor, who has wowed audiences for over three decades now. Arjun was seen in multi-starrer ‘Aurangzeb’. ‘Gunday’, '2 States' did fairly well at the Box Office. His latest- 'Tevar' did moderately well.
After an impressive debut as a street-smart boy in Yash Raj Films’ ‘Band Baaja Baraat’, followed by a conman’s role in ‘Ladies vs Ricky Bahl’, Ranveer Singh went on to deliver a performance of a lifetime in Vikramditya Motwane’s ‘Lootera’. The hunk of an actor, who had earlier delivered happy-go-lucky characters, left one and all mesmerized as Varun in the period film set in Bengal of 1950s.
The dashing actor immortalised ace filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram in his ambitious project ‘Goliyon ki rasleela- Ram Leela’ and did 'Gunday' with Yash Raj. His film 'Kill Dil' failed to do well at the Box Office but the young actor is focusing on SLB's 'Bajirao Mastani'.
