1. Alia Bhatt in Udta Punjab


After Alia’s debut in KJo’s Student of the Year, she proved to be
modest and natural in Imtiaz Ali’s Highway. She chose to play a
migrant Bihari labourer in Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab and produced
the knock-out performance of the film. It was a commendable film which
had smashing performances by all its lead actors including Shahid
Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh.

2. Amitabh Bachchan in Pink


Amitabh Bachchan in Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s Pink holds the movie
together. Bachchan uses his towering presence and baritone to

3. Randeep Hooda in Sarbjit


Hooda has had some wonderful roles in numerous films. Whether it wasMahabir in Highway or Charles in Main Aur Charles, he has done his best. The Indian prisoner jailed in Pakistan, Sarbjit is played by Randeep Hooda. Sarabjit as a film is too loud and it undermines Hooda’ssubtle, subdued performance. One to be held in high regard for the sheer effort.

Siras, a teacher at the Aligarh University who was sacked because he
is a homosexual. Manoj Bajpayee invests his life’s craft into the

testament to his immense dedication to his craft. The film covers the
journey of the legendary cricketer is an alluring manner.

hospital and bond over their shared experiences. Kalki and Naseeruddin

watching. Kalki is known for her strong and intelligent character and
