The Wish List

Friday, January 05, 2018

As the new year commences, it’s time to make some wishes for the coming months, to do with movies and actors.

It’s time Ranbir Kapoor has a big hit of his own, he has been working so hard on films like Bombay Velvet and Jagga Jasoos, and seeing that effort wasted is so sad. Such a good actor deserves to be superstar.

The same could be said for Kangana Ranaut. She has been in the news the last few months for controversies, pomposity and flops. But she said something very brave in an interview—that she wants to be an inspiration to other young women, not a cautionary tale. This anti-nepotism flag bearer needs to be able to shut down the sniggers. And some good films for Saif Ali Khan—his little son gets more attention that his films!

Let Varun Dhawan’s winning streak continue—the star can do silly as well as serious, so he deserves all the audience support he can get.

Other actresses with less talent than Alia Bhatt have been grabbing the best parts—she needs to climb that ladder to the A+ plus list.

The other actor who deserves all encouragement is Rajkummar Rao, who owns every part he plays; hope Bollywood doesn’t make him lazy.

It’s good to see Radhika Apte move from Pune theatre to mainstream Bollywood—more success to her.

And definitely much more success and better films for to Kalki Koechlin, who is one of the finest actresses in films today.

When Akshay Kumar slipped from khiladi to serious national award-winning actor (never mind the controversies) and supporter of causes (never mind that TV slip-up) is hazy, but more power to him.

The discovery some really good actors—star material—in the show by Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty; an infusion of fresh, non-nepotistic talent would be good.

The last few years, Bollywood has been matching every big-budget globe-trotting film, with simple stories set in the Indian heartland—so some more of these films, please.

Priyanka Chopra may be become the face of Bollywood in Hollywood, but how about lending some more star power here too?

What will Deepika Padukone do for an encore after playing the glorious and controversial Padmavati?

May Irrfan Khan keep getting the right-fit roles and the hits.

Shah Rukh Khan’s superstardom hasn’t dimmed in spite of his Harry misfire, but heck a blockbuster won’t hurt.

A film that finally brings that Oscar to India. It doesn’t really matter all that much, but industry folk seem so hungry for that trophy.
