News18 Movie Awards 2017: Nominees for Best Debut (Male)
Take our poll and vote and choose your favourite debut actor of 2016.

From small-budget gems to big Bollywood blockbusters, some of the best films in the recent years hit the theatres in 2016. It was a year that saw a transition of sorts with the cinephiles accepting genuine performances than just make-believe. Despite a few dreadful misfires, viewers found Bollywood films/performances spanning across crucial issues – drug abuse, mental illness, distorted gender expectations, a dysfunctional family, etc - that were worth bringing to the fore.

In the fourth edition of News18 Movies Awards in association with United Colours of Benetton, we select nominees in various popular categories and allow our readers decide the outcome.

Take our poll here to vote and choose your favourite debut actor of 2016.

Udta Punjab: Diljit Dosanjh

Punjab industry’s biggest star Diljit Dosanjh made his Bollywood debut in Abhishek Chaubey’s dark and gritty Udta Punjab. Playing the role of a cop intertwined in the drug circuit of the state, Dosanjh won the hearts of audience and critic alike with his sincere act. The restrained acting just proved the potential of Dosanjh as a serious actor.


Neerja: Jim Sarb

Jim Sarb made his debut as an antagonist in biopic Neerja. Sarb played the hot-headed hijacker, Khaleel and made us shiver in anger with his realistic act. The chilling act of a terrorist was pulled off brilliantly by Sarb and established him as an actor with great potential in Bollywood circuit.


Mirzya: Harshvardhan Kapoor

Son of Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor, Harshvardhan chose a challenging film to make his debut. Playing the male lead in Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra’s romantic saga Mirzya, Harshvardhan pulled off a challenging role in his very first film.
