2017 is going to be a big year in terms of the number of big ticket movies which will hit theatres. And like every year, there’ll be an induction of new faces into tinsel town.

While 2016 may not have been a great year for debutants in Bollywood, with the most anticipated fresh pair of Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher failing to impress, the second half was salvaged by some gritty performances by Diljit Dosanjh in Udta Punjab and Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra in Dangal.

However, 2017 looks different due to a sheer variety of actors making their debuts. While a few of the debutants are star kids, we also have some digital stars like Kanan Gill making their big screen debut. On top of that, there’s a foreign import from China in the form of Zhu Zhu who’ll be seen opposite Salman Khan in Tubelight. And we’re already excited for such a mix bag!

While last year has already proved the fact that filmy backgrounds and hyped projects are not enough to make a mark in the industry, this year’s debutants will have to make sure to work twice as hard on their skills and hunger to perform.

From the looks of it, we think 2017 is gonna be a better year in that respect! Here’s hoping that we’ll see some fabulous newcomers making an impact this year. All the best!
