Bollywood is known for its talent, music and movies. It’s just another religion in India. Star kids always have an upper hand in this industry. Very rarely do outsiders make it big or establish themselves in the industry. However, one such outsider to establish himself as a lead name in Bollywood is Sidharth Malhotra.
He started his modelling career at the age of 18 but switched to movies and direction. He started his film career as an assistant director for My name is Khan in 2010 and by 2012 Karan Johar cast him as one of his lead in Student of the Year thus giving his acting career a boost. SOTY went on to become a commercial hit, getting him the Stardust award for Best Debut in the process. He then played an aspiring businessman in the critically praised comedy-drama Hasee Toh Phasee in 2014, following which he starred as a hardened criminal in the romantic thriller Ek Villain (2014) and an aspiring author in the family drama Kapoor & Sons (2016). The latter two rank among Malhotra’s highest-grossing films, with a worldwide gross of 1 billion each.
On the other hand, the southern celebrity cluster too has won over the Hindi audience in very less time. One such star from the south Indian film industry is Rakul Preet Singh. Having been brought up in a Punjabi household, Rakul Preet started early in the industry. She began her career in modelling at the age of 18 much-awaited participating in Femina Miss India 2011. Rakul Preet’s acting debut was Gilli in 2009, after which she returned to the showbiz in 2011 with Keratam. Rakul Preet’s acting skills and overtly magnificent looks made her fan favourite in no time. She strengthened her foothold in the southern industry with 4 blockbusters even starring opposite industry heavyweights Jr. NTR and Allu Arjun.
Having worked in 4 different languages viz. Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Hindi, she has become a known face in most households in the country. Add to all this, a cute smile and that brightness around her persona, Rakul Preet is definitely someone to fall for. A perfect blend of talent and looks, she is often touted as the next big thing in the film fraternity. Having debuted in Bollywood with Yaariyan, she has already sprinkled her bit of charm everywhere here.
Aiyaari- The much awaited film of early 2018 promises to be a complete blockbuster bringing both these powerhouses of talent in one frame. The film is being directed by Neeraj Pandey who has helmed epic movies like M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story, Baby, Rustom, Special 26, A Wednesday which was loved by both the critics and the masses equally.

Also, they’ll be shooting a music video at the campus Quad.
