5. Aditi Vasudev
She’s Duggal Sir’s daughter from Do Dooni Chaar and Naveen’s love interest from Sulemani Keeda. She’s fairly new to the world of cinema but you wouldn’t know that judging by her performances. There’s a flare of vibrancy and confidence in her acting and that makes us put her in this list. But because she hasn’t happened to Bollywood in a commercial way, she hasn’t yet been recognized by the media or the film industry. We hope that changes though. Keep at it, Aditi!
6. Akhilendra Mishra
We’ve seen him play the dishonest politician or a crooked cop over the years. While he nails these anti-hero characters, Akhilendra Mishra was also appreciated by many for his role of Chandrashekhar Azad (Legend of Bhagat Singh) and Arjan (Lagaan). Sadly, he’s never been mainstream enough to get appropriate media coverage. This list is our ode to brilliant actors like him.
7. Naveen Kasturia
We’ve all seen his brilliant speech at the end of TVF Pitchers. His role as a struggling film writer in Sulemani Keeda was a testimony to his command over his range of emotions. He’s calm, poised, subtle and yet very expressive. We would definitely want to see more of him in the coming days. Naveen, tu beer hai bhench*d.
8. Chandan Roy Sanyal
Chandan Roy Sanyal made his big screen debut in Rang De Basanti but came into limelight for being Shahid Kapoor’s cocaine addicted friend in Kaminey. More recently, he was seen in D-Day and Jazbaa. He has proven his acting prowess and understanding of his craft time and again and yet, there are very few people who would recognize him.
