The year 2018 saw a host of fresh faces making their debuts, starting with Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter in Dhadak, Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara Ali Khan in Kedarnath, and of course, everyone's favourite Siddhant Chaturvedi in Gully Boy. This year, Student of The Year 2 became a sensational launchpad for starlets Ananya Panday and Tara Sutaria. And there are many more fresh faces we'll be seeing in the coming months.
Be it star kids or the young talent who make it on their own, every year, the industry welcomes new faces that carry the legacy of Indian films forward. Well, it's always refreshing to see fresh talent flourish in the film industry, right? As we draw closer to the year, we've compiled you a list of newcomers who are getting us excited...
After Katrina, the younger Kaif sibling is all set to make her Bollywood debut. Isabelle Kaif will feature in a movie titled Kwatha opposite Salman Khan’s brother-in-law Aayush Sharma who made his debut in Love Yatri last year. Inspired by true events, Kwatha, an action-drama film will show how a few incidents change a man’s opinion and perspective on certain things.
Speaking about her sister's debut, Katrina revealed in an interview earlier, "I'm playing the normal part that any sister would play (laughs). Isabelle is really happy, excited and is working very hard. I have been in the industry for so many years, so there are a lot of places where I can help and impart my suggestions. But the good thing is that she is independent and a strong-minded person. Isabelle's take on things, as well as the path that she wants to navigate, is clear in her mind. Obviously, there will be certain struggles that she'd have to face on her own, but it's great that she comes with a huge amount of formal training, as she has spent four years at Lee Strasberg. I am very happy about it as she is coming prepared."
Sajid Nadiadwala is all set to launch another Shetty in the film industry. After launching Sunil Shetty, the director is all set to launch his son Ahan Shetty in Bollywood. The actor will soon join the bandwagon of star kids and make his debut in the Hindi remake of Telugu hit RX100. He will be seen opposite Student of the Year 2 actress Tara Sutaria. Directed by Milan Luthria, the release date of the film is yet to be announced.
Actress Pooja Bedi's daughter Alaia F just wrapped up shooting for her debut film Jawaani Jaaneman. The movie also features Tabu and Saif Ali Khan. A few weeks back, Alaia took to Instagram to announce the wrap of her film, "Gratitude and excitement are all I feel. It's a wrap for me on 'Jawaani Jaaneman'. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I couldn't have asked for anything more."
Born to Pooja Bedi and Farhan Furniturewalla in 1997, Alaia has already become an internet sensation.
