With lines between Hollywood and Bollywood blurring constantly after stars like Priyanka Chopra, Vir Das, Irrfan Khan, Ali Fazal, and Anupam Kher have redefined how actors from the subcontinent are perceived, it’s refreshing to see producers as powerful as the Russo Brothers placing their bets on Extraction – starring a host of Indian actors. In 2020 alone, some of our promising actors are all set to make their international debut in big-ticket movies. Here’s looking at the celebs who are exploring opportunities in foreign shores.
Randeep Hooda has been playing varied characters throughout his career and people had been wondering when he would make a big entry to the Hollywood scene. Finally, with Netflix’s Chris Hemsworth starrer ‘Extraction’, Randeep takes the big leap this year.
The industry’s most popular scene-stealer too makes his international debut with ‘Extraction’. It’s a prestigious project that had his heart from the narration itself and the actor wanted to take out time for this. Despite being between shoots of Kabir Khan’s ’83’, ‘The Kargil Girl’ which is the biopic of Gunjan Saxena and ‘Mimi’, the actor shot for a schedule in Thailand for the film.
The actor is in the best phase of his career as he started shooting for his Hollywood debut ‘Call Centre’ in which Suniel plays a Sikh cop. The film directed by American-Chinese filmmaker Jeffery Chin is inspired by a real-life incident when an Indian police officer busted a multimillion-dollar call centre scam. The film will star him in the lead and the film was shot in Hyderabad over the last 6 months.
To bag a Nolan film is every actor’s dream but in India, it’s only the evergreen actress Dimple Kapadia who can gloat to have cracked it. The actress will be seen in Nolan’s next Tenet which was shot in Mumbai amongst other places. The film also stars John David Washington, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh.
After a fantastic debut in Vikramaditya Motwane’s ‘Bhavesh Joshi’, Priyanshu despite having a string of Bollywood movies in his kitty gave his nod to Chris Hemsworth starrer ‘Extraction’. One look at the trailer and you know how brilliantly the actor has transformed himself from playing the boy next door in Netflix’s ‘Upstarts’ to the menacing drug lord in ‘Extraction’. As the film gears up for a release this month, he surely has all eyes on him.
