While the year 2021 is certainly giving us some rays of hope in terms of new beginnings and the relief from this current pandemic in the form of the launch of the COVID-19 vaccination, there are a lot of other things to look forward to this new year. While all the industries got badly affected by this pandemic, amongst those worst hit industries was the Bollywood industry who was also badly affected by this situation.
However thanks to various OTT platforms that got a sigh of relief for the actors and the whole industry and helped us to remain connected to our favorite actors and actresses. While most of the movies were delayed and got released on the OTT platforms, some of them are still being awaited to be released by the fans.
Though many newcomers made their debut in 2020, it looks like the year 2021 has also got some more lined up!! Yes, the year 2021 will be getting a lot more exciting because of these six newcomers who are all set to entice us with their powerful performances on the big screens. Exciting, right!?
So, let’s have a look at the list of some newcomers in 2021:
Shalini Pandey is an Indian actress who predominantly appears in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi films. Though her work in Hindi films and series have not been recognized yet because of the short appearances and some unimportant roles she bagged, the actress is all set to make her debut this year with the famous actor Ranveer Singh in the film Jayeshbhai Jordaar.
Why we are more excited about the actress making her debut in Bollywood is because of her performance in the Telugu film, Arjun Reddy which was also her debut movie. Shalini shot to fame after the success of the movie and went to take up other projects in the Tamil and Telugu industry.
What comes to us as a surprise is the fact that despite not being able to speak Telugu fluently, the actress still did her dubbing in the movie, Arjun Reddy. After her success in the film, she went on to make her debut in the Tamil industry with the film 100% Kadhal and is now all set to mark her debut in the Bollywood industry with the film, Jayeshbhai Jordaar.

Apart from this, we already have loved him for his work in the Sony television serial Porus after which he shot to fame. The main quality of the actor is said to be his dedication towards the roles he plays.
As per some reports, for his role in the serial Porus, this 23-year-old actor underwent special training for the show and had to take up lessons for learning various skills like Horse Riding, sword fighting, and rowing to make his character look realistic on screen.
The Indian model Manushi Chhillar shot to fame after being crowned as Miss World in 2017. Being born into a Haryanvi family, Manushi represented Haryana in the Femina Miss India 2017 pageant which she ended up winning.

Yes, apart from all the above talents, she is also a trained Kuchipudi dancer, who had attained training in the same under Raja and Radha Reddy.
Coming back to her debut in the Bollywood industry, Manushi would be soon seen in the Bollywood movie Prithviraj, opposite actor Akshay Kumar. As per the reports, she would be entitled to play the role of Sanyogita in the movie.
The actress even said in an interview, “From the time my director met me, he told me that remember ‘you are princess Sanyogita — you should roar like a lioness!’ and this stayed with me and I have tried to channelize my director’s vision on the sets.
It is a very powerful line. It shows the resolve, the spirit, and courage of Princess Sanyogita and it made me understand how I have to depict her and her life on screen,”.
While we all had seen the classic Bollywood actors’ daughter Athiya Shetty made her debut in the Bollywood movies, now it’s time for the actor’s son, Ahaan Shetty. Ahan is nearly 25 years old and would be making his debut in the year 2021 with the remake of the superhit Telugu movie, RK 100, under the production of Sajid Nadiadwala and director Mohit Suri.
While his parents, Suniel and Mana Shetty had always chosen to keep their children away from the limelight during their childhoods, the actors’ children are all set to launch on the big screen with a bang. For this, Ahan had already started giving public appearances and is quite active on social media these days.
This self-made star, Shirley Setia, started her career with her cute smile and singing covers on Youtube. She then went on to performing live in concerts and attained a well-known position on her own!!
