where is the new crop??

ShahRukh Khan 39.
Aamir Khan 39.
Ajay Devgan 38
Salman Khan 39.
Sunny Deol 49.
Anil Kapoor 45.
Sanjay Dutt 45+.
Akshay Kumar 35+.

For past 12-14 years only these guys are ruling the bollywood, they come in all sort of roles, ranging from college romeos to underworld dons, and amazingly all of them have fan-following, no matter what crap they present on screen becomes a rage.

These guys have carved their own space through sheer hardwork, otherwise who would have of thought of someone like Ajay Devgan surviving another year in the tinsel world.

But who will replace them, where is the new crop??, apart from Shahid , I can't see any other potential superstar, No Abhisheks or Hrithiks or Vivek/Fardeen/Zahids can sustain for long.

Well, may be coz 18-35 age group middle-class segment decides the fate of stars and movie; and there are 'unknown/unexplainable' reasons for liking a star, hmmm.... for example in my case I started to like SRK right from his "Fauji" days; so its sort of nature of middle class segment to love/like a star for unexplainable reasons, same way Salman after so many controversies still have huge fan-following, same for all other stars.
And now purchasing power of this segment has increased manifold so they make it a point to watch their favorite stars movies year after year.

I think I need lonnng hours of uninterrupted sleep B-(
