Every year, several newcomers dive into Bollywood, hoping to make it big.



While some debutants go unnoticed, there are a few who manage to make a mark. This year, too, several actors tried their luck.

We speak to some successful ones and ask them how their lives have changed post their debut films.

Freshers who arrived this year.



Tiger Shroff(made his debut with Heropanti): "Since the release of the film, I have felt that people have started recognising me. Many have approached me to talk to me. But, when I saw a kid contestant of a reality show expressing his desire to become Tiger Shroff when he grows up, it moved me. It really made me feel like a star."



Kiara Advani (made her debut with Fugly): "It was overwhelming for me when, at an event, Sridevi met and told me how much she liked my performance in the film. I was spellbound and felt that I have done something good. Also, once when I was at the airport, a group of people noticed me and they started walking towards me. I was with my friends and we had to silently get away. It was a new andspecial experience."



Mohit Marwah (made his debut with Fugly): "When I went back to my hometown (Delhi), everyone wanted to talk to me, have a conversation about my journey, and congratulated me for entering the industry. It gave me a sense of achievement and I felt encouraged. I felt special when people would notice me on the streets."



Kriti Sanon (made her debut with Heropanti): "I believe my film was really liked by youngsters. Once, when I entered a hotel, a young woman noticed me and ran towards me. She screamed like people do when they are star struck. It was a huge moment for me, and I happily talked to her, and clicked pictures with her."



Nora Fatehi (made her debut with Roar: Tigers Of The Sundarbans): "My star moment was when I got noticed for my performance in my debut film by Prakash Jha and that’s how I got to play one of the leads in his upcoming film."



Rakul Preet (made her debut with Yaariyaan): "I often shuttle between Mumbai and Hyderabad, and during one of my journeys, few kids recognised me and approached me to get some photographs clicked. That was the day I felt I should be prepared for such instances often now."



Himanshu Kohli (made his debut with Yaariyaan): "I was in Indonesia in November and people there recognised me. They didn’t remember my first name, so they addressed me as Kohli. They started singing one of my film’s songs. I had never thought something like this would happen just after my first film."



Manasvi Mamgai (made her debut with Action Jackson): "I had bought a shirt before the release of the film, but when I went there to exchange it as it didn’t fit me, I had five people paying attention to me. They recognised me. That was a shocker, and I realised thatI better be well-dressed while stepping out from now on."
