They are young and raring to go.

But in spite of proving their talent, they are yet to find success in Hindi cinema.

That may change soon.

Subhash K Jha looks at the five super-talented actors waiting to break through.

Mithila held her own against two of the finest contemporary actors, Irrfan Khan and Dulquer Salman, in Akarsh Khurana's under-rated Karwan.

Now, she holds her own against two of the finest actresses of our country, Tanvi Azmi and Kajol in Renuka Shahane's Tribhanga.

What's keeping Mithila from being noticed by Bollywood?

Will Tribhanga do the trick for this bundle of charm?

 

Adarsh Gourav

I noticed him four years ago as Manoj Bajpayee's recalcitrant son in the little-seen film Rukh.

He held his own admirably.

Then I was dismayed to see him play bit roles in Deepa Mehta's Leila and Sridevi;s last film Mom.

In both, his natural aptitude was strangulated by the marginalisation that has killed may promising careers.

Would Adarsh discover the success he deserves after the author-backed role in Ramin Bahrani's The White Tiger?

Adarsh MAY find it hard to break through into international cinema with those culture-specific looks.

But Bollywood should make a place for him.

 

Akshay Oberoi

From playing the sugary sweet lover-boy in Rajshri Productions' Issi Life Mein to turning into a vicious drug peddler and pimp in the web series High, Akshay has discovered a mean streak in his personality.

He will now be seen as the antagonist in Subhash Kapoor's Madam Chief Minister.

To see the angelic lover-boy turn into this leery lout, wonder what Sooraj Barjatya would say!

 

Siddhant Chaturvedi

Siddhant made an impact as the rapper Sher Singh in 2019's Gully Boy.

But what happened to him after that?

Industry folks tell me this promising newcomer was acting pricey after Gully Boy and was letting Karan Johar take all his career decisions.

Will Bunty Aur Babli 2 and Shakun Batra's untitled film with Deepika Padukone turn the tide for him?

 

Amit Sadh

Amit has been struggling to get out of the shadows for a decade now.

He has told me of the horrific humiliation he has suffered in this industry.

But the worst is behind him.

He is all set to strike out this year with his portrayal of Major Deependra Singh Senger in Zid.

You can't keep talent down for too long.
