Slow But Not Steady

1a

Call it the price of success but to stay on top, an actor has to deliver hit movies at a pretty fast clip. That’s the one thing that’s not been going her way. If you haven’t guessed already, we’re talking about Deepika Padukone, who tops the list of actresses in the Hindi film industry but who hasn’t had a Bollywood release since her last outing, Bajirao Mastani, in December 2015. Padukone was to break this streak with Padmavati in the next few days but, as we all know, the film has been postponed indefinitely.
Katrina Kaif is another name on this list. After Baar Baar Dekho in September 2016, Kaif will be seen in 70mm next month with Tiger Zinda Hai. And, lastly, we have the youngest star on the block, Alia Bhatt, also going through a slow phase right now. Her Badrinath Ki Dulhania was a huge hit earlier this year but she will be seen after a gap of 15 months in Raazi, which releases in May 2018.
