Perhaps never in the recent history of Bollywood have so many newcomers got their foot in the door to tinsel town.

It's raining newcomers in Hindi film industry. Year 2008 will see more than a dozen debutant(e)s embarking on a journey into the glossy, gossipy world of fame, glamour, creativity and cut-throat competition. And not surprisingly, most of them come from filmi families.

The likes of Sikander Kher , Neha Oberoi , Mimoh , Sonal Chauhan and Nisha Rawal have already opened their account. While Sikander has impressed in a tortuously stylish Woodstock Villa , Mimoh has stood out as an example of the prerogative a starson enjoys despite the conspicuous lack of star-like qualities in him. As for the ladies, well, none of them frankly had a role that brought forth their acting skills or potential.

And the list of newcomers keeps getting longer as we look at the year ahead.

A duel is set between two of the eagerly-awaited debutants - Harman Baweja and Imran Khan - as their respective films Love Story 2050 and Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na are set for a clash on July 4. Harman, the son of filmmaker Harry Baweja , is already being compared to Hrithik Roshan because of his striking facial resemblance to the latter. Imran, on the other hand, can't escape comparison to his super-talented uncle (paternal), Aamir Khan , who is the producer of 'Jaane Tu'.

Another big Friday (June 20) would be the release of Kumar Mangat's film Haal-e-Dil that will mark the beginning of three careers - that of Amita Pathak , Adhyayan and Nakuul Mehta . This Anil Devgan-directed movie has seen the involvement of big shots like Ajay Devgan, Vishal Bharadwaj, Anurag Kashyap and Rajkumar Santoshi in finalizing the movie's male cast. It is primarily the launchpad of Mangat's daughter Amita. It may be coincidental that Shekhar Suman's son Adhyayan also gets to begin his Bollywood innings with her.

But the man who is enjoying the most pairings with newcomers is none other than Himesh Reshammiya . Going by his self-styled policy of working only with new female faces, Reshammiya gets to romance Shweta Kumar , the daughter of filmmaker Indra Kumar, in Karzzzz . He also gets to pair with former Miss India Niharika Singh and newbie Jennifer Kotwal in A Love Issshtory and Mudh Mudh Ke Na Dekkh Mudh Mudh Ke .

And let's not forget the girl who has lapped the biggest break of 2008 - Anushka Sharma . This Bangalorean beauty gets to romance Shahrukh Khan in Aditya Chopra's comeback film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi . It can't get bigger than this for a debutante.

So, the writing is on the wall. Move over, the fuddy-duddy veterans. The generation X is storming Bollywood. Take heed, else you might be knocked off your feet.
