The year gone by saw the launch of many new faces in Bollywood, who impressed the audiences with their debut performances.

Some of the movies like 'Kai Po Che', 'Shuddh Desi Romance', 'Chashme Baddoor', 'Raanjhanaa', which had a good run at the box office, saw many talented debutantes make their successful beginning in the tinsel town.

Newbie actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who rose to fame with TV serial 'Pavitra Rishta', managed to steal the limelight with his confident performance in his debut 'Kai Po Che'.

Helmed by Abhishek Kapoor, the big screen adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's novel 'The 3 Mistakes of My Life', also starred another newcomer Amit Sadh and 'Love Sex aur Dhokha' actor Rajkummar Rao.

Sushant's effortless acting flooded him with so many projects that he had to turn down Kapoor's offer to star in his next film 'Fitoor', opposite Katrina Kaif.

Sadh, who debuted with TV shows, was seen in the first season of the controversial reality show 'Bigg Boss'. The actor's performance in the slice-of-life film was critically appreciated.

As for Rao, this movie served as a boon, which gave him a recognition in the eyes of the audience. He later went on to play the titular character in Hansal Mehta's 'Shahid', which garnered much appreciation from international and national critics.

Aditya Chopra's 'Shuddh Desi Romance', not only had a good box office standing, but it added yet another name to the promising debutantes launched by Yash Raj Films, by introducing newbie Vaani Kapoor.

While the lead actors Sushant Singh Rajput and Parineeti Chopra, grabbed eyeballs with their chemistry, Kapoor was no less in living up to the benchmark created by other actors, who have been launched by banner.
