List of actors who will make a debut in bollywood. IANS

None of the high-profile Bollywood launches in 2020 happened to owe to the pandemic, so several aspiring actors are looking forward to the year that is coming up. A mix of star kids and outsiders are scheduled to enter Bollywood over the next 12 months.

IANS takes a look at the names who will most likely create waves:


Vijay Deverakonda

The Telugu superstar, who gained all-India popularity with his 2017 Telugu blockbuster “Arjun Reddy”, will be seen alongside Ananya Panday in Dharma Productions’ upcoming film directed by Puri Jagannadh. Promoted as a pan-India film, the project is aimed at showcasing Deverakonda as all-India star material.

Manushi Chhillar

She brought home the Miss World crown in 2017 and is now all set to debut in Bollywood with the period drama “Prithviraj”, starring Akshay Kumar in the title role of the warrior king Prithviraj Chauhan. Manushi plays Prithivraj’s lover Sanyogita. The Yash Raj Films historical, directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi, was initially eyeing a Diwali 2020 release but had to be pushed back owing to the pandemic.

Rashmika Mandanna

Rashmika is an actress in the Telugu and Kannada film industries and has done a Tamil film, too. She makes her Bollywood debut with “Mission Majnu” opposite Sidharth Malhotra. The espionage thriller, directed by Shantanu Bagchi, is inspired by a true story set in the 1970s. There are reports that she has bagged another Bollywood film that stars Amitabh Bachchan.

Namashi Chakraborty

Early stills of his debut film “Bad Boy” drew comparisons with the handsome features of his father, yesteryears’ superstar Mithun Chakraborty. The youngster is ready to take on all the comparisons and is excited about the romantic comedy film directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. Namashi describes his debut feature as a “fun and youthful film”. He is paired with debutant Amrin Qureshi, daughter of Sajid Qureshi, who is the producer of the film.

Rinzing Denzongpa

Son of veteran actor Danny Denzongpa, Rinzing will show his action avatar in “Squad”. His debut film has also been delayed due to the pandemic. He has been cast opposite Malvika, who is the niece of veteran actress Anita Raaj. Many would remember Malvika as the young Pooja, or Poo in Karan Johar’s 2001 directorial “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham”.

Pashmina Roshan

The daughter of composer Rajesh Roshan is yet to make an official announcement about her Bollywood debut, but there have been rumors. What added fuel was her cousin, actor Hrithik Roshan, sharing social media posts about her and writing positive words like “Proud of you Pashmina” on Instagram. (IANS)

Pat Gelsinger, CEO - Intel

Intel saw its stock tumbling by more than 8 percent after the chipmaker said the industry-wide component shortage affected its PC chip business during the third quarter (Q3). Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger told CNBC late on Thursday that he didn't expect the semiconductor shortage to end until 2023. "We're in the worst of it now, every quarter, next year we'll get incrementally better, but they're not going to have supply-demand balance until 2023," Gelsinger was quoted as saying.


The company delivered its Q3 results with revenue up 5 percent (year-over-year) driven by strong demand in its DCG and IoTG businesses, despite the highly constrained industry-wide supply environment. "Q3 revenue was $18.1 billion slightly below our guide due to shipping and supply constraints that impacted our businesses," George S. Davis, Chief Financial Officer, said in a statement. He also announced plans to retire from Intel in May 2022. In the third quarter, the company generated $9.9 billion in cash from operations and paid dividends of $1.4 billion.
