There was a time when every actor took his or her own time to establish a position in the Hindi film industry. But given how influential film celebrities can be, age is no bar for success or inspiration. On one hand, legends like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan inspire millions of people worldwide; there are some young guns of the industry like Tiger Shroff, Anushka Sharma and Alia Bhatt, that have also become sources of inspiration, particularly for the teenagers.
Talking about those young guns, especially actors below the age of 30, who have seen blazing success and enviable popularity, there are plenty of names that crop up, so let’s have a look at some of the most successful and inspiring actors of the Gen-Next era.
1. Alia Bhatt
Without a doubt, the list is perfect to start with this magnificent actor, who’s also a huge star. Making a smashing debut with Student of The Year in 2012, Alia delivered one massive hit after another. Six years and nine films down the line, she has only one commercial failure in her filmography. With a mammoth social media clout and continuous raves about her acting prowess at a mere age of 25, Alia Bhatt is surely likely to inspire more people in future.
2. Anushka Sharma
It’s not only her list of blockbusters like PK, Sultan and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil that’s inspiring, but also her ability to open her own production house at the age of 26, and making unconventional films like NH10 and Pari. And even beyond that, her graceful handling of trolls on social media, who targeted her for her husband Virat Kohli’s dismal performance, deserves all the applause. She’s someone who is known by the name- Self Made.
3. Tiger Shroff
Believe it or not but some die-hard fans call him the reincarnated avatar of Bruce Lee and Michael Jackson, to get such comparisons and compliments, especially when you’re only five films old, speaks volumes of your impact on the audiences. Fresh off the blockbuster success of Baaghi 2, which has raked in over 155 crores at the ticket windows till now, he’s surely the next Gen-Next superstar.
4. Kartik Aaryan
Remember those iconic monologues from the Pyaar Ka Punchnama films? Kartik Aaryan unleashed havoc on the female sex and subsequently made tons of fans in the process, including girls and women. After becoming one of the youngest members of the 100-crore club with Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, this 27-year-old is here to stay and continue to influence and encourage everyone out there wanting to be an actor or anything for that matter!
