While the film industry earlier was seen investing only in senior stars to get more return on their investments because of their popularity, it is now showing a change. More and more filmmakers now prefer to work with the younger stars and are heavily investing in them.
The young generation of Bollywood has been very well received by the industry. They have proved their mettle with their talent.
So much so, that this year has seen a lot of films of the young actors not only releasing but also faring better than some senior actors' films at the box office thanks to the comparatively lower budget and their immense popularity and freshness.
