Nominated for Zee Cine Award for Best Female Debut, Screen Award for Best Female Debut, IIFA Award for Best Supporting Actress, and Stardust Award for Best Acting Debut (Female) in the year 2016, Andrea is a very talented singer also.

Following the trend, here are 10 amazing actors who have arrived and you better take notice.
