When we think about producers and production houses, Yash Raj Films, Dharma Productions, Red Chillies are some of the many names that pop up in our heads. However, lately Bollywood has opened its arms not only to aspiring actors and directors but also producers! Yes, the tinsel town is buzzing with a brigade of hot-shot young producers. And as a matter of fact, many of them happen to be aspiring or relatively new Bollywood celebrities.
Anushka Sharma, who made her production debut with NH10, is one of the few actors who are expanding their career horizons. Plus, rumor has it that even Shahid Kapoor is planning to venture into production. Woohoo! But, are these celebrities rushing into it too soon? Only time will tell.
Like we mentioned earlier, Bollywood is brimming with new and upcoming producers. Other than Anushka Sharma, Ranbir Kapoor too will be joining the production league. Yes, the young Kapoor scion is all set to co-producer his next venture, Jagga Jasoos along with Anurag Basu. It’s no surprise he has excelled as an actor; we wish this venture will successfully add a new feather to his cap!
Moreover, even Priyanka Chopra is ready to don a new role. With the desi girl of Bollywood leaving her mark in every field possible, then why not production? Her upcoming venture Madamji will credit her as a co-producer with Madhur Bandharkar.
Moving on from actors, the Hindi film industry also acquainted us with young producers like Rhea Kapoor and Ashi Dua. Anil Kapoor’s youngest daughter Rhea turned producer with Aisha (2010) starring her sister, Sonam, whereas Ashi Dua was successful in bringing together top four directors for Bombay Talkies (2013).
According to our grapevine, even Imran Khan’s wife, Avantika Malik will soon be producing a film starring her husband! There you go, 2015 definitely has some surprises packed in store for us. With younger talents taking over the baton, we hope to look forward to some refreshing change in the Hindi cinema.
