Actress Sanjana Sanghi, who made her film debut in Dil Bechara (2020) with the late Sushant Singh Rajput in July, was named the top Breakout Star of Indian Streaming Films and Web-Series this year by IMDb which released its list yesterday.

While newcomer Sanghi nabbed pole position, Isha Talwar took the second spot. The actress was seen this year in Kaamyaab (2020), Ginny Weds Sunny (2020) and the popular web-series Mirzapur 2. Talwar’s Mirzapur 2 co-star Harshita Gaur came in at third position.

Paatal Lok’s Swastika Mukherjee came in fourth while Aahana Kumra, seen in the series Marzi and Betaal, took the fifth position.

Shreya Dhanwanthary, who played journalist Sucheta Dalal in SonyLIV’s Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story, is sixth in the list with Bulbbul (2020) star Tripti Dimri coming in seventh.

Actor Jaideep Ahlawat, the lone male star on the list, is eighth while Breathe: Into The Shadows star Nithya Menen and Pataal Lok’s Niharika Lyra Dutt are ninth and tenth, respectively.

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,” IMDb’s Matt Kumin told the Indo-Asian News Service. “We congratulate these actors and actresses on their breakout success this year and look forward to watching their careers continue to grow.”
