Bollywood’s new star will have a new name in 2019
India’s new Bollywood star, who has taken on a more mainstream persona with his films like The Wedding, will also be known by his first name in the coming year.
The actor, Anushka Sharma, has been dubbed as ‘Anushka Bollywood’ and will make his debut on the big screen on December 23, 2019, as part of an exclusive deal with a film studio.
He is the first Indian actor to be dubbed as the title character in a film.
Anushke had also appeared in several Bollywood films, but this will be his first time on screen as the lead character.
Anurag Kashyap will also join the list of leading actors in 2019, with his debut set for December 30.
The Indian film industry is expected to see a huge surge in the next two years as more and more Bollywood actors are expected to be cast in films.
“I am delighted to be part of the ‘Bollywood Bollywood’.
I am the first actor in the film industry to be called Anushko,” Sharma said in a statement.
Sharma is the son of former Bollywood actress Anushkumar Sharma, who played the lead role in the hit Hindi film Anushkin.
He also worked as a model, actor and singer.
Anunke Bajpai, who plays a younger sister in Anushkar’s film, is also known as Anushta.
She is also the sister of Anush Kumar Sharma.
Anwar Kapoor, the son-in-law of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, is another star who has become known as ‘Shah Rukh’.
Shah Rukhs son, who also stars in films, will be dubbed in the upcoming year.
Anuja Agarwal, a Bollywood actor, will become the first Bollywood movie star to get the title role in a Bajaj film.
Agarwals debut is scheduled for December 10.
“This is a big year for the Indian film, Bollywood, and we will be looking forward to celebrating it in 2019,” Anushkas son- in-law said.
A Bajai, Anuraj Kapoor and Anupam Kher have also been cast in Bollywood movies.
