Will these hot new girls score in B-Town?
Every year Bollywood sees a deluge of new talent hoping to make it big. This year too, we see a new crop trying their luck. Here's a look at the gorgeous few that caught our attention.
Nargis Fakhri in Rockstar
Ranbir Kapoor is one lucky fella. His latest co-star is Nargis, who is a part Pakistani and part Czechoslovakian model from New York.
With Imtiaz Ali at the helm and music by Academy award winner music composer A R Rahman, this Kingfisher calendar model is officially on a roll.

Catrina Lopez in Bhindi Bazaar
We can think of one reason to watch the Kay Kay Menon starrer and that is Jennifer Lopez's sexy cousin Caterina, who is all set to perform a sizzling item number in the film.
Caterina plays a bar dancer in the film about gangs, who reside in the densely populated area of Bhindi Bazaar in Mumbai.

Puja Gupta in Faltu
The stunner from Delhi managed to make it to the top 10 at the 2007 pageant at the age of 22, finishing off in ninth place.
Her Bollywood debut is the coming of age story of today's youth directed by choreographer Remo D'souza and starring Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, Jackky Bhagnani, Chandan and another newcomer Angad Bedi.
Here's wishing the movie doesn't end up like the title when it releases on April 1.

Ariadna Cabrol in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
While unknown in India, this Spanish actress is already famous in her circle for her bold nude scenes in films like Les Pel cules De Mi Padre (2007), and Elios (2009), which have lesbian themes.
Which makes us wonder if she's going to repeat her bold act for Zoya Akhtar's film, which stars a host of big names like Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar, Kalki Koechlin and Katrina Kaif.
Can't wait for this one.

Aliya Bhatt in Student of the Year
Now this is a dream debut for any new hopeful.
After all it has two of the biggest names in Bollywood -- Shah Rukh Khan and Karan Johar -- in the credits.
Buzz has it that Shah Rukh may play the role of a professor in Johar's upcoming flick, and the cute dimpled newbie -- who happens to be director Mahesh Bhatt's daughter -- is supposed to play the student.
Vying for the student of the year award are two more newcomers -- David Dhawan's son Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra.

Sarah-Jane Dias in Game
Not exactly a stranger to the arc lights -- her debut in films was the Tamil romantic comedy, Theeradha Vilaiyattu Pillai opposite Vishal Krishna -- the former Miss India World (2007) has signed on Game opposite Abhishek Bachchan.
And going by the trailer of the stylish action thriller directed by Abhinay Deo and produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, and also starring Kangna Ranaut, Boman Irani, Jimmy Shergill and Shahana Goswami, the film looks very promising.

Lakshmi Manchu in Krrish 3
