The days were only good looks and family background was ruling the Bollywood industry is long gone. This new generation is focusing more on talent and less on the chocolatey looks of the actors. The age of the eccentric star is upon us. In the old days, the line between stars and actors was drawn in stone.
Well, all that is changing. Actors like Vicky Kaushal and Rajkummar Rao, who don’t firmly qualify to be in the ‘star league’ like say Hrithik Roshan or the Khans, are slowly figuring their position as ‘actor-stars’. That important fascination proportion was often said to be mislaid. Thankfully, that sort of an attitude is soon ‘becoming history’.
Vicky made his tag as the fresh new talent in films like Raazi and the more recent Sanju, where parenthetically he does not play the lead, has adorned the cover of Glamour magazine GQ in its July edition. Meanwhile, Rajkummar Rao, who has a filament of successful films as well critically acclaimed film in his kitty, is on the cover of another allure sleek, Elle.
Well, we are happy for both of them. Both these men have their hands full--while Vicky is working on Anurag Kashyap’s Manmarziyaan and Uri, Rajkummar has projects like Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, Mental Hai Kya and Stree in his kitty.
