Hindi cinema may not be the best in world at the moment, but we are slowly getting there. Over the past few years, Bollywood has seen a pool of talent who have adequately contributed in putting the film industry on the map. In 2020, we are definitely hoping to see more of these talented faces in addition to new talent, of course.
The film qualified for the Oscars. Need we say more?! It didn’t make the final cut but either way, it’s a big win for Zoya Akhtar‘s fabulous piece of work. Amirite?
The film was a blockbuster success even though it was drowned in a pool of controversy. Shahid’s performance was widely applauded and one cannot deny, he was damn good. He put across a varied range of emotions in the film, which truly exhibited his versatility as an actor. Leaving aside the controversial subject matter, we were truly impressed by Shahid’s acting chops.
Vicky was a winner since we first saw him on the celluloid. Be it Raazi or Sanju, he has proved his true mettle as an actor with each film. But URI: The Surgical Strike takes the cake for being his best film till date, and also fetching him the National Award.

Well well, we can never get enough of this Chandigarh munda, can we?! He has been at the top of his game since the beginning of his career; and hit it out of the park these last couple of years by churning out super hits such as Badhaai Ho, Dream Girl, Bala, Andhadhun, Article 15 and more.
Priyanka is a timeless actor. She can play a mother of two and also slay as a businesswoman in Baywatch. Talk about variety, huh?! With The Sky Is Pink, PeeCee gave us one of the most memorable performances of her career and definitely left us wanting to see more of her in 2020.
After the birth of her daughter, Adira, Rani made sure to choose quality over quantity. We haven’t seen much of her in the past 5 years but with Mardaani 2, we are glad she is choosing substantial roles which make a difference to the society too.
Taapsee has really broken in on the scene and how! She has slowly yet steadily climbed up the charts with her excellent choice of films and an unmatched performance delivery. The girl is surely here to stay!
Star performer of the year, we’d say! With a plethora of films under her belt, 2019 certainly belonged to Bhumi. She is inarguably an unstoppable force to reckon with, in the coming years. You can’t argue about that, especially not with the body of work Bhumi has established in only the first four years of her film career.

What can we possibly say about Vidya that hasn’t been said already?! She is a powerhouse of acting and extremely sure about her craft. The best part? She knows it and that transforms pretty well on screen. Prior to its release, Mission Mangal was touted to be an Akshay Kumar film but Balan took the limelight away with her act as a learned scientist as well as a homemaker.
