Engineer turned actor
Vicky Kaushal: The instinctive actor
For his debut film 'Masaan', Vicky Kaushal got a flood of messages, the most special one was from Amitabh Bachchan.
After delivering a splendid performance in 'Masaan', life changed for 29-year-old Kaushal, who was an engineer in his previous avatar. His formal dresses for office were replaced by meetings with filmmakers.
He will be next seen opposite Alia Bhatt in Meghna Gulzar's 'Raazi'.
The 'viral' queen
Mithila Palkar: The star of web-series
Stardom happened in an unexpected manner to 24-year-old Mithila Palkar. A video of her using cups to produce music, went viral, garnering 2.9 million views.
After this, Palkar appeared in web-series, and her role of Meera in TV show 'Girl In The City', soon made her a favorite of millenials.
She will be making her Bollywood debut in a film starring Irrfan Khan.
Giving heart to music
Jubin Nautiyal: Twisting Humma Humma
28-year-old Jubin Nautiyal always aspired to make it big in the world of music. He did it, when his version of 'Humma Humma' song for movie 'Ok Jaanu' garnered over 200 million views on YouTube.
Jubin feels his song 'Kuch Toh Bata Zindagi' from 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' was the most difficult to compose, as it spoke about a plethora of emotions.
