Stardust (English) - - COURT MARTIAL -

Bol­ly­wood’s debu­tantes con­tinue to shake up things at the Box of­fice and are paving the way for a whole new line-up of film sen­sa­tions. But does the new­est kid on the block Sara Ali Khan have the chops to reign above them all this year? Ahad San­wari de­cides to look a lit­tle fur­ther into that.
