There’s no brownie point in guessing that 2021 is going to be a delicious surprise for movie and show lovers. This year will see some popular and critically acclaimed film actors mark their web space debuts and some web thrills to come with their highly anticipated second projects. But there is a common thread that connects them – from Pratik Gandhi to Vijay Varma, these actors have proven themselves with their nuanced performances and have won the hearts of audiences and critics alike.
We bring you 5 of those players who are preparing to redefine content over content:
After the hugely popular 1992 Scam: The Harshad Mehta Story, Pratik Gandhi emerged as an overnight sensation and a force to be reckoned with. While his fans are anxiously awaiting his return to the screen, he has signed the next Tigmanshu Dhulia web series with Richa Chadha. Apparently the series will be based on the book The Six Suspects written by Vikas Swarup. Expectations are high from the actor who has proven himself from his first Hindi project.
After delivering memorable performances with Dangal, Luka Chuppi, Stree and Pati Patni Aur Woh, the actor is ready for his web debut. He will be seen as one of the main actors in Vikramaditya Motwane’s Stardust, a web series that takes place in 1947-1989 and revolves around the Indian film industry and explores the clash between two superstars.
Popularly known as Makkal Selvan, this Southern star has made headlines in films like Pizza, Vikram Vedha, ’96 and Super Deluxe which have received wide critical acclaim. And now he will be seen in a central role in the untitled crime thriller web series Raj & DK. Known for his nuanced and complex T-shaped characters, it would be interesting to see what Sethupathi brings this time around.
The young actor has already proven himself with films like Laila Majnu and Bulbbul. One of his most anticipated projects is the screen adaptation of S Hussain Zaidi’s successful detective story, Dongri To Dubai, where Tiwary will play Dawood Ibrahim. His appearance as a king of the mafia has already caught the attention of many. Cinema connoisseurs believe the web series will be a game-changer for him.
Gully Boy has made Vijay Varma one of the most sought-after actors in showbiz. With shows like A Suitable Boy, Elle and Mirzapur 2, he’s become a powerhouse. And he’s ready to continue his streak of hits with Fallen, a crime thriller movie directed by Reema Kagti. While not much is known about her character, all we can say is that her never-before-seen avatar is sure to surprise audiences.
