5 trailblazers of the Bollywood fraternity
Bollywood is a world full of glitz and glamour. It’s glad to see how the staunch support of nepotism and the startstruck-hierarchy have both gone down the sea. Moreover, the power of good looks that has always decided the beaming future of actors in Bollywood, has finally been replaced by talent.

With an endless number of box office hits, it is difficult to fathom the talent that has left us awestruck. But here’s a list 5 actors who are climbing up the ladder with extraordinary persistence and determination.

  1. Ayushman Khurana

This man is the new talk-of-the-Bollywood-town, consistently breaking all the stereotypes in his movies. With several back-to-back hits, like Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015), Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017), Andhadhun (2018) and Dream Girl (2019), Ayushman Khurana ranks amidst the best male actors in the contemporary era.


His big shift from the small screen to the big is the result of his vivacious performances that have fabricated his fate together. He kickstarted his career with a win in a survival show, Roadies 2, which switched his life from scrap to the screen in hours.

In one of his recent interviews, he revealed the secret mantra of breaking records at the box office. He said, “You start believing in your intuition, your gut feeling. It ultimately depends on the choices you’re taking. Everyone is talented today. Your career graph depends on the choice of scripts, nothing else.”

  • Vicky Kaushal

Speaking of great actors belonging to the contemporary era, we cannot exclude the extraordinary on-screen performance of this man who has been digging into everyone’s heart with the highest-grossing films.


The several roles played by Vicky Kaushal in most of his films have been eye-arresting for many viewers. Whether it was Raazi where he played a potential military officer or Raman Raghav 2.0 where he played an unhinged cop, he has always been a treat to watch.

“I never analyze what works in my favour. I am just focused on giving my best to whatever I am doing. I am happy that it worked,” said the actor in a recent interview with Forbes India.

It is surreal to watch how Kaushal’s dusky looks that have previously fetched him some humiliating conjectures are now rapidly bringing him appreciation and admiration from fans.

  • Nawazuddin Siddiqui

The career graph of Siddiqui is yet another prime mover in the world of Indian cinema. He has been a protagonist of several blockbusters scoring himself a list of reputable awards.


Anurag Kashyap’s Black Friday in 2007, Kabir Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan in 2015, are only a few gold ticks in his extraordinary portfolio.

The ability to break through the stereotypes and dive straight into the heart of the character is surely fetching him his brownie points everywhere.

  • Rajkumar Rao

When we speak of the finest actors in Bollywood, we cannot talk about Rajkumar Rao. With no guidance to tour him across the streets of Bollywood, Rao has broken the barriers of the staunch biased attitude, leaving stardom with a question mark.

Some of his most famous hits, Queen (2014), Trapped (2016) and Stree (2018), has left the audience in awe of his quintessential acting skills.


Similar to Vicky Kaushal, even Rao has been in the grip of criticisms for his physical appearance before. But now, it’s quite the contrary!

Rao’s stunning on-screen energy, passion for acting and multi-talented skills, stimulate the opportunities for his mega-star ranking.

  • Pankaj Tripathi

Amidst all the award-winning actors, Pankaj Tripathi has always paved his pathway to big achievements with his natural acting skills.

With a grand total of 40 movies and 60 television shows, Pankaj Tripathi is yet to become the new mega-star with all the luck at his side.


His national film award is another massive achievement that speaks wonders for his onscreen performance.

Talent vs stardom has gotten a new leash of life with these 5 mega stars in the making. Whether the fantastic five unite for a blockbuster film or battle it out against each other, the upcoming years have a lot to unravel. Stay tuned!
