He is much better than the new comers who are coming in Bollywood now. I hope he gets lucky and can at least become a parallel lead in multi-starrers and comedies. Unfortunately, you did not include his name in the poll.
Sushant probably has the greatest chance because of the movie he is in as well as his talent as a dancer.
I do love Barun and I disagree that he can't act. He in fact is a really good actor. He has played different characters earlier including a villain so one shouldn't assume that he can only play an ASR type. He has really good comic timing. Only problem is he has 2 left feet. He can't dance to save his life and even I do not want to see him dancing ever unless I want to have a good laugh. He is the most versatile out of the rest, anyone who has seen his shows before ipk will know that.
As for KSG and GC. I can't stand them and I do not understand what their appeal is.
LOL!! have u seen Kavi shastri in real life,? he is five foot nothing with a big upper body and disproportionate lower half ...which looks ugly!! i was a fan during his Sony show but when i saw him do his stand up comedy act in person . realised he is NOT hero material!!!!
and barun sobti is a v average actor!! its the formula thats a success in IPK not the actors...any other actor would have been just as popular! Infact , the chemistry on that show is nothing compared to some of this PHs older shows, but yes, the fact they have projected a MB starone type romance on a GEC for the first type has made it stand out from the regular saas bahu fare...also IPk story line is good.. but Baruns limitations as an actor and a looker make me wonder if with him the shows that popular, with a better actor it would have scaled even greater heights!!
nevertheless, each comes with his own destin and this show and resultant stardom was his...and he has defo worked hard for it...no doubt.
of these choices, sushant and Gurmeet stand the better chance..sushant is already on his way to BW glory and hopefully GC will follow suit..
Karan too is good but maybe he is hindered by his lack of dancing skills ...plus, he has acquired a not so favorable rep these past few yrs of being moody and un dependable...its a small indy so talk sticks...but i wud like to see him on the big screen sometime...
