Our Top 20 Candid Pictures Of 2019; Featuring Stars From Across The Indian Film Industry


2019 was a busy year for the Silverscreen photo desk. This year saw some of the biggest stars from across industries come down to Chennai to promote their work and we got to freeze some kodak moments. Here’s our pick of the most candid pictures of stars, and the stories behind them. Beyond the promotions and the business of cinema, the many posed pictures, and the perfect profile shots, it is these candids that allow us to peek at the person behind the star. We stand by, looking for moments like this where people go off the script at press meets. These make for a great day out for everyone involved. Including the photo journalists.
