2015 saw the rapid rise of some bright young talent. Within no time, they rose to such heights of popularity, that by the end of the year they threatened to burn themselves out.
Here are the young entertainers of India who need to take a break.

She sold a soft drink with Siddharth Malhotra and conducted a masterclass on cinema at a film festival. She also had her career’s first flop Shaandaar in 2015.

His show wraps up in January, so he may just be getting one. Thankfully he hasn’t carried his ambitions of becoming a movie star any further.

Besides two blockbusters, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Salman has also been seen hosting the television show Bigg Boss.
