Mumbai: Late actor Sushant Singh Rajput's co-star in Dil Bechara actress Sanjana Sanghi is the top Breakout Star of Indian Streaming Films and Web Series this year by IMDb. The list was released on Thursday.
Sanjana is followed by Isha Talwar of "Mirzapur 2", Harshita Gaur, Swastika Mukherjee and Aahana Kumra.
Fresh from the success of "Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story", Shreya Dhanwanthary is sixth in the list, with Tripti Dimri, Jaideep Ahlawat, Nithya Menen and Niharika Lyra Dutt following her.
The list is determined using data from IMDbPro STARmeter rankings, which are based on the actual page views of the more than 200 million monthly IMDb visitors.
"With the unprecedented popularity of streaming movies and web series this year, we are thrilled to highlight the Indian actors and actresses from these projects who saw a tremendous rise," said Matt Kumin from the service, adding: "We congratulate these actors and actresses on their breakout success this year and look forward to watching their careers continue to grow."
Dil Bechara that released earlier this year was Sushant's last movie. The movie is a typical love story that revolves around the characters of Immanuel "Manny" Rajkumar Junior (Sushant) and Kizie Basu (Sanjana). While Kizie is suffering from thyroid cancer, Manny had osteosarcoma. Dil Bechara is all about the way these two embrace life and its imperfections. One of the major highlights of the movie is the sizzling chemistry between Sushant and Sanjana. The theme is serious but A. R. Rahman’s music is soul touching.
