The awards season has commenced and cat claws are out among this year’s female Bollywood debutants
Considering the flood of female debutants in Bollywood this year, it appears that everyone is going the extra mile to ensure they are eliminating competition. Be it with lobbying or even sending out inaccurate information about their competitors’ attitude this fresh crop of actresses apparently seem to be doing it all!
Yami Gautam and Huma Qureshi jointly bagged the best female debutante award at an awards event on Sunday
The list of female newbies in B-Town includes Paoli Dam (Hate Story), Yami Gautam (Vicky Donor), Esha Gupta (Jannat 2, Raaz 3, Charavyuh), Huma Qureshi (Gangs of Wasseypur, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana), Diana Penty (Cocktail), Sunny Leone (Jism 2), Illena Dcruz (Barfi!), Priya Anand, (English Vinglish), Nidhi Subbaiya (Ajab Gazabb Love), Alia Bhatt (Student of the Year) among others.
An industry insider says, `With so many of them this year, some of them have not even secured a nomination which has upset them. And with Ileana having featured in several South films, does she qualify as a newbie?`
The source adds, `Esha Gupta who had three films out in her very first year seems to have been forgotten and hasn’t been featured in the debutante nomination consideration set starting with an awards show owned by a large entertainment led company.
This has made this outspoken newbie quite upset and she has apparently been wondering why that has been the case especially since she is one of the names who’s had coveted filmmakers on her resume in the first year itself.
Does this mean that we will see some more catfights as a run-up to the awards? Well, we just have to wait and watch!
