Word: I’m not nominating Dulquer Salmaan on this class, though Karwaan was his first Bollywood movie, as a result of he’s already a longtime actor (a celebrity, to be exact) of Mollywood with hits additionally in Kollywood and Tollywood. Nominating him in a debutant class for Bollywood movies makes about as a lot sense as Hollywood nominating Priyanka Chopra as a debutant.
