A film is a universal language. It is a story and emotions that speak to the audience. Holding the statement true, many B-town actors have found acceptance and love with their international ventures. While legendary actors like Irrfan Khan and Om Puri have made a dent with their work in Hollywood, we have a younger generation of stars following their lead.

Ali Fazal became a hit in the west within no time. The actor, who is soaking in the success of ‘Mirzapur’ (2018), made a debut with ‘Fast and Furious 7’ (2015). Later, the star played the lead in ‘Victoria & Abdul’ (2017) alongside Judi Dench. He also has ‘Death On The Nile’ in the pipeline.
Huma Qureshi ventured into international space with Zack Snyder’s zombie action-thriller ‘Army of the Dead’ (2021). Released on Netflix, the actress made a lot of noise for her impactful performance in the same.
The young and talented Priyanshu Painyuli is garnering love from all across for his phenomenal choices. The actor who left everyone mighty impressed with his character Robin in ‘Mirzapur’ featured in American drama ‘Extraction’ in 2020 and is gearing up for the release of ‘Rashmi Rocket’.
