Kumar

One of the most popular leading men in Bollywood and the sixth highest paid actor in the world in 2020, Kumar has been powering through the fallout of COVID-19 for a slew of upcoming projects. “Sooryavanshi” was meant to be the first major Bollywood title to open post-pandemic after a year-long delay, but its April 2021 release was again delayed for November after Kumar and dozens of others were diagnosed with COVID while filming for “Ram Setu,” which is set to be Amazon’s first co-production with India that will release globally on Prime Video. Still, Kumar ended up breaking the pandemic’s hiatus on major Bollywood films anyway, with “Bellbottom” releasing in August to half of India’s cinemas amid reduced-capacity audiences.
