I don’t know why I chose to make my debut with ‘Dil Maange More.’ The film had three leading ladies – Tulip Joshi, Ayesha Takia and me – opposite Shahid Kapoor. I was fresh to Bollywood at that time because I had just come back from England and had no clue about hero-heroine dynamics in India.

A few of Ellison’s short stories from the 1940s and 1950s were widely anthologized over the years. After a while, it became generally known that he was at work on another novel.

Since I made my debut at Sheffield United, I felt like I could step on and climb the leagues.

When I made my debut I had a lot of seniors in the side, then players of my own age group, then juniors and now am rubbing shoulders with teenagers. It’s actually the fourth generation of players and a rarity for a player to achieve it.
Mithali Raj
I remember my England debut, in 2002. It came in Jersey, in a triangular tournament with New Zealand and India. To say that it did not generate great local interest is putting it mildly: our first game, against India, attracted a handful of spectators.
Isa Guha
I played the lead in ‘Kutumb,’ my debut serial. But after that if I had been stubborn asking for lead roles, just a few shows would have come my way.
Hiten Tejwani
I made my Broadway debut in the revival of Hair and followed it up with the bus and truck tour of Grease.

Sanya Malhotra
It is every boy’s dream to make his debut for Liverpool.

I am doing the remake of ‘Bai Chali Sasariye,’ which was my debut in the Rajasthani film industry. It became a major critical and commercial hit in the history of Rajasthani cinema.

Joy Division finished the 1970s on a high. Our debut album, ‘Unknown Pleasures,’ was doing well; we’d just finished a hugely enjoyable and successful tour. The band’s profile was higher than it had ever been, and it seemed to be growing by the day.

Elvis Mitchell
It’s a dream come true to make my debut for England. It’s something I always wanted to do as a young boy, and I’m sure there’s thousands and thousands of kids who dream and wake up every morning thinking that’s what they want to be. I feel very proud and very privileged.
Harry Maguire
I took six months to rehearse how I’d ask Shah Rukh Khan if he would launch my debut novel. I thought of 100 ways to ask him. Finally, three weeks before the book hit the stands I went to pop the question and forgot everything I rehearsed.
Kanika Dhillon
Michael Chandler’s performance in his UFC debut was great. His opponent was great, but it felt like he was mentally unprepared to face Michael Chandler. He crumbled to his pressure and movement early.

When I wrote my debut album I was around 17, I didn't r

When I wrote my debut album I was around 17, I didn’t really know what my sound was or who I was and what I wanted.
Nina Nesbitt
I would have to say my best moment as an Everton player would probably be making my debut against Arsenal, coming on to such a good atmosphere as well.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin
Former Dublin newsman Paul Lynch made his debut as a novelist a few years ago with a book called ‘Red Sky in Morning,’ set in mid-19th century County Donegal, where a rage-driven farmer has committed a murder with devastating results.

I am glad that I made my television debut with ‘Perfect Pati,’ a show that portrays a mother and her role as a mother-in-law in such a strong positive light.
Jaya Prada
Many people are blind and only care about the UFC. That’s the wrong way of thinking. The proof is Michael Chandler, coming from Bellator, having such a devastating victory in his UFC debut against a highly ranked opponent.
Patricio Freire
I think ‘Glee’ was a freshman comedy, and I think whenever it’s your debut season, you get compared a lot to the other shows, regardless if there’s any sort of overlap in content or tone or anything, just because you came out in the same year.
Gillian Jacobs
‘Cube’ was the first big science fiction film I was a part of. It was a fantastic directorial debut by one of my oldest friends Vincenzo Natali and it remains one of my most painful and uncomfortable roles. It’s also one of my favorites.
David Hewlett
‘Grease’ was my Broadway debut. That was eye-opening. At the same time, it was very familiar. It was a Broadway show, but it’s kind of the same as doing a show in Minnesota. It’s the same type of rehearsal process. You are doing 8 shows a week, but I worked at a theatre in Minnesota that did 11 shows a week.
Laura Osnes
You can make a debut in 25 operas. But to make a debut at the Metropolitan Opera is huge.

I am born every day and make my debut every day. Others pile on the years.
Walter Mercado
‘Your Life Calling’ is the first thing in my long career I’ve ever actually invented. It is my entrepreneurial debut.

Vikrant Massey
Trivikram garu is my inspiration to learn Telugu. When I made my debut I didn’t understand a single word, even when people around me would be talking. Trivikram garu used to translate for me.
Anupama Parameswaran
We strove for more than 60 years to give Joe DiMaggio the hero’s life. From his debut at Yankee Stadium in 1936 until his death in 1999, DiMaggio was, at every turn, one man we could look at who made us feel good.
Richard Ben Cramer
I had been a student in Vienna, and one of the neat little things I had found out was about that zoo. It was a good debut novel for me to have published. I was 26 or 27 when it was published. I already had a kid and would soon have a second.
John Irving
When I made my IPL debut, I was nervous because there were people around me, and the cameras focused on me.

My first film was a Malayalam film where I played a small character and then my big debut happened in Kannada, which is also my mother tongue, in 2016, ‘U-Turn’ and since then my life has taken a different turn altogether.
Shraddha Srinath
I think what people don’t realize is the transition from NXT to the main roster is a big jump. It’s getting a whole new audience familiar with a certain character. If you debut too many women at one time, it’s hard for the audience to get to know, understand, and see the rise of that character.
Charlotte Flair
I always thought that if I ever make my Bollywood debut it should be with a film which has a good story, which has emotions, romance. ‘Bittoo Boss’ is all that I ever dreamt of and is the perfect launch pad for me.
Pulkit Samrat
Frankly speaking, ever since my debut, I have been offered cop roles. However, I never felt confident about pulling them off, probably due to my short physique or the absence of the required traits in me.

Mindy Grossman
My debut was against England back in 2012.
Marco Verratti
I was very happy to make my Liga debut.

HBO is not an advertiser-based model, it’s a subscription model. So what’s significant to HBO is not necessarily the debut of an episode, it’s the cumulative numbers.
Michael Mann
My debut performance was on the railway tracks where I was asked to sing some Hindi songs in front of a mafia gang and around 20,000 more people were present. I sang in fear and danced too and luckily, they liked it.
Kumar Sanu
I think ‘Drishyam’ turned out to be an excellent platform for me. I got a chance to share the screen with actors like Ajay Devgn and Tabu in my debut film. And I was appreciated for my job.
Ishita Dutta
I’ve never done regional theater, and I’m getting to make my Broadway debut as a principal, playing a pretty cool part, so there are probably people keeping an eye on me to see if I’ll trip up.
Josh Segarra
Musically, ‘Fallen’ is a cross between ‘Belus’ and something new, inspired more by the debut album and ‘Det Som Engang Var’ than by ‘Hvis Lyset Tar Oss’ or ‘Filosofem.’
Varg Vikernes
I made my debut in football at the age of 18, I met my wife at 27 and I never showed up with a girlfriend at home until my wife, so I was always single until that age.
Hernan Crespo
Jordan Vogt-Roberts directed me in ‘Kings of Summer,’ which was his debut feature. I got to witness the passion and hunger that first-time directors bring to projects, and ever since, then I’ve been very intrigued when I’ve come across a project with a less experienced director.
Erin Moriarty
There’s been many highs throughout my international career which I’ll always remember with fondness, including my debut against Northern Ireland, winning two international player of the year awards, and my hat-trick in Malta.
Robert Snodgrass
My debut film, 'Madras Cafe,' is a political thriller i

My debut film, ‘Madras Cafe,’ is a political thriller in which John Abraham plays an army officer. My character’s name is Ruby Singh, and I play John’s wife, with all the strappings of an army man’s wife.
Raashi Khanna
I always knew that I wanted to be an actor. I made my debut on stage when I was 12, and I was sure that this is what made me happy. However, nobody takes a 12-year-old’s career choice seriously. Everybody laughed it off. I also ran away from it, but acting eventually found me.
Mithila Palkar
I do not think I felt the pressure on my debut show.
Rupali Ganguly
The record company started as an adjunct to that, to give young composers their first recorded performances; to give young musicians their first debut on a recording. These are all things that big record companies would never touch because there is no money in it!
Gunther Schuller
People waited for my debut. But at the same time, the biggest disadvantage of a star child is facing criticism of nepotism.
Athiya Shetty
My debut book is a collection of personal stories and advice about communication on the Internet. More specifically, the downfall of communication because of the Internet.
Franchesca Ramsey
Since my international debut in 2014 the miles on the clock have probably crept up and Test cricket is the level where the pressure and scrutiny are greatest.
Moeen Ali
I first started coming to Ibiza as a DJ; my debut set was at Sankeys with Duke Dumont. I wasn’t really in the clubs, though, to be honest – I was mainly in the studio working.
Jax Jones
Making my debut at Man City, playing with my brother, that was a high point and was amazing. Going to Charlton and winning the League One championship. Even when I was at Southampton, my first year there I really enjoyed it.
Bradley Wright-Phillips
107 caps isn’t bad for someone who isn’t ‘a top, top player’, is it? I never expected to get that amount of caps. When I made my debut, I set myself the personal target of trying to get 50 caps and score 10 goals if I could. So to have 107 is something I am really proud of, particularly being among those names.
Steven Gerrard
After Le Havre, I became the youngest player in the first division in Reunion. I made my debut at 16. That’s how I got spotted by Nantes.
Dimitri Payet
Making my debut at such a young age was a massive thing for me.
Harry Wilson
I was straight listening to rap at 15: LL Cool J, the Skinny Boys, Whistle, UTFO. And Run-D.M.C.’s debut was at the top of my list.
My Premier League debut was against Watford in 2015. I got a few minutes or so. It was truly heart-warming. So nice, being young and then scoring goals.
Kelechi Iheanacho
I have always been slow to sign films, ever since my debut.
Pranitha Subhash
I am happy to make my debut in the Champions League.
N’Golo Kante
When I made my debut, I remember bridalwear being the only thing you ever showed at a runway presentation.
Masaba Gupta
After my debut as a pro for Groningen, I was at Eindhoven for two years.
Arjen Robben
My college life was brief because I started working for my debut film when I was in eleventh standard. But I have no regrets, as I stayed in touch with my friends who keep briefing me about the drama in the college. The opportunity to get into showbiz was so exciting that I couldn’t let it pass by.
The Hell in a Cell match that always sticks in my mind is the original Michaels versus Undertaker match. It was really something. The bout itself was so good, while Kane’s debut made it even more memorable. That takes the cake in terms of Hell in a Cell matches.
Kevin Owens
You only get one world premiere of your directorial debut.
Geoffrey S. Fletcher
My debut album is just a diary from a lonely 21-year-old. That’s what it is.
Sam Smith
I made my England debut against Japan in 2013. Hope Powell, our manager at the time, always demanded the best. She had quite a stern approach… She’d look at you over her glasses sometimes.
Lucy Bronze
In hindsight, my darkest time came when I was an idol trainee. My future was uncertain and I always had to ask myself, ‘Will I be able to debut?’ It was physically and mentally exhausting sometimes.
Andrade had fame and popularity in Mexico, and he experienced that same fanfare when he made his NXT debut.
Zelina Vega
It’s not essential for me to have a big debut week; it’s not essential for me to have big radio records.
Frank Ocean
Going into the UFC debut, you have to wonder what’s going on, what’s the workout going to be like. It’s just an honor to be at an open workout.
Sage Northcutt
My seven-year-old daughter knows old songs and how the neighborhoods got their names. There are little things: Businesses receive blessings from Hawaiian priests before opening, and everyone’s kids have their debut luau. You can’t really get through a day without doing something Hawaiian.
Kaui Hart Hemmings
I joined Espanyol in 2011, and three years later I made my first-team debut.
Eric Bailly
I’ve dreamt lucidly about how my Broadway debut would go and what that would feel like, but I know that I can’t be prepared for that.
Jordan Fisher
‘Daddy’ is an amazing Bollywood debut for me. I don’t play a typical Bollywood heroine. It’s a performance-oriented role.
Aishwarya Rajesh
The debut I got was a dream debut for me.

The debut I got was a dream debut for me.
Zareen Khan
A little acting debut in Spin City, with Michael J. Fox, which opened up a whole new door for me.
Heidi Klum
As long as I get an opportunity, with my ability, I can do well. My England debut was an opportunity for me to show that, and I was really happy with how I did.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek
I approach every film like it’s my debut.
Sonu Sood
There’s a ton of nerves for every fight I’ve been in; it doesn’t matter if it was my debut.
Holly Holm
A little of the sketch character Pootie Tang went a long way on HBO’s now late, probably soon to be lamented ‘Chris Rock Show.’ So it’s surprising how much fun the character’s film debut, ‘Pootie Tang,’ is.
Elvis Mitchell
I’ve played for England, played in the Olympics and made my Premier League debut.
Jack Butland
I got nominated for a Tony in my Broadway debut, which was fascinating and thrilling and sort of unbelievable all at the same time.
Pablo Schreiber
I remember when I was shooting for my debut show Tashan-e-Ishq,’ the first season of Naagin’ had just started airing and I used to be so fascinated by the characters. It feels good to be a part of such a prominent franchise on TV.
Jasmin Bhasin
Grooves are important to John Talabot – they’re pivotal. That’s the case with most dance-music producers, but there’s something especially sleek about the Spanish producer’s debut album, ‘fIN.’
Anthony Fantano
I grew up listening to a lot of early ’90s hip-hop. I had the debut Wu-Tang album, Biggie, Snoop, that kind of stuff. Hieroglyphics, the Gravediggaz. I remember D.O.C.’s ‘The Portrait of a Masterpiece’ was something that had a big influence on me.
Riz Ahmed
For people like me, I think it is more about, ‘When do people give you an opportunity?’ rather than you deciding about when you want to make a debut. If I had a chance, I would have come as a child artist in this industry.
Harshvardhan Rane
The magnitude of being able to make my Broadway debut as SpongeBob in ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ really only started to hit me when we took it out of town.
Ethan Slater
‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ is definitely my best Bollywood debut.
Harshvardhan Rane
Getting that debut film is definitely harder than someone who has got a known last name. I mean some star kids don’t even audition.
Amyra Dastur
After your debut, it doesn’t matter whether your parents are actors or factory workers. All that matters is whether you can get the job done.
Shruti Haasan
I got my Equity Card with my Broadway debut when I did ‘Rent.’ I was in high school, and I came to New York to do that show.

Self-respect is the more important attribute than money and hence I am walking out of my debut Bollywood directorial venture ‘Laxmmi Bomb.’
Raghava Lawrence
I think 18 is a good age to make your debut.
Ryan Sessegnon
I was called up for Spain against France, my international debut, and it was said that I had gastroenteritis when I had an anxiety attack. But no one wants to talk about that. Football’s not interested.
Bojan Krkic
For Birmingham, I scored four on my debut. It’s not bad. First one was a tap-in; it set me up nice for the day, and I think I got a hat-trick in 13 minutes. So obviously I was cruising, then got one in the second half and came off!
Jesse Lingard
Real Madrid was my home for a long time and I’ve not forgotten it. I grew up there, I met a lot of people and I made my debut. There’s part of me that will always be there, I can’t deny it. To play for the first team was a dream.
Marcos Alonso
The word ‘album’ makes you nervous, especially ‘debut album.’
Ella Mai
Since my professional debut, I’ve always had a risky game.
Hugo Lloris
I’m very proud of my New York debut. I played Oscar Wilde in ‘Gross Indecency’ off Broadway in about 1997. And I was very proud of my Broadway debut in ‘The Iceman Cometh.’
Michael Emerson
I used to wear the German shirt with such pride and excitement, but now I don’t. I feel unwanted and think that what I have achieved since my international debut in 2009 has been forgotten.
Mesut Ozil
To make my ODI debut was very special. Yes, I would’ve loved to get an opportunity to bat in that game but the situation demanded a partnership at the time.
Stuart Binny
I eat, sleep, and breathe movies. Though I didn’t understand the seriousness of films when I made my debut, I felt on top of the world.
I made my England debut when I was 17, against India. I was the first Asian to play for the England women’s team, and I did have mixed feelings playing against the country my parents are from but I was born and bred in England and I’ve always known I wanted to play for my country.
Isa Guha
SiriusXM has had my back ever since day one when I was making remixes in my dorm room at university, and it means a lot that they’re supporting my music as I prepare to release my debut album, ‘Cloud Nine.’
I was brought on and scored, so I will never forget my Champions League debut.
Fabio Quagliarella
Certain governments are suggesting that bloggers and tw

Certain governments are suggesting that bloggers and tweeters aren’t ‘real’ writers and, so, don’t merit protection. A writer is anyone from a Nobel laureate to a debut blogger. They all get PEN’s attention.
John Ralston Saul
To be honest, at the beginning of 2019, I never thought about making my ODI debut.
Vijay Shankar
I think that debut albums are supposed to sound sort of raw. You don’t want to record ‘Sgt. Pepper’s’ as your first album, because where do you go from there?
Taylor Hawkins
On their debut, Korn brought a new definition of metal that was a game changer.
Rob Halford
There are so many people who make their debut every day in B-Town, and there is no competition among a particular section of actors. Everybody is talented, and all actors are trying to make their mark in the industry. No one is competing with another person.
Not that I have any regrets about my first film. It was a learning experience and I’m grateful for the opportunity. But I think somewhere we went wrong with the planning and execution of my debut.
Akhil Akkineni
I was 19 when I made my Bollywood debut with ‘Ekk Deewana Tha,’ and all alone in Mumbai. I would be easily affected by all that was said or written about me.
Amy Jackson
I’ll tell you what I think in general about people who want to make their Broadway debut that are not trained stage actors. Don’t they know, Broadway ain’t for sissies? It is a tough gig. You are responsible, physically, mentally, emotionally, for eight shows a week, at the top of your game. It’s not easy.
Patti LuPone
Cinderella is making her Broadway debut. It’s an honor to step into that position and, in that way, I am creating a role because it’s never been done on Broadway. I feel so honored.
Laura Osnes
It’s always an unreal feeling to get the win, but to get it in the UFC – especially on my debut – it was amazing.
Alexander Volkanovski
Chris Jericho was always someone I looked up to. I was a WWE fan growing up, and I remember his debut.
Kevin Owens
What is exciting is taking back the excitement of being able to debut something to an audience in exactly the way you want to.
Trent Reznor
You want to be the best, and you hear a lot of good things about yourself, and then you find out that you’re going to debut as a caddy – it’s a little gut-wrenching, and it hurt.
Dolph Ziggler
My debut feature, ‘The Baby-Sitters Club,’ got good reviews and made good money for what it cost. But it took me six years to get to direct my second feature. I think a guy would have had another movie out the same year.
Melanie Mayron
There’s just nothing funnier or crazier than that – doing your Broadway debut as Spider-Man in ‘Spider-Man’ the musical. It was, like, the last thing I could have ever possibly imagined happening. I mean, I would tell people I was playing Spider-Man, and people would just break out laughing because it was so ridiculous!
Jake Epstein
My debut season was a good one for me, especially at 16, but I said that I want to improve.
Ryan Sessegnon
After my debut in 2001 in ‘Aks,’ where I had a small part, I had to work really hard to get work in the industry. For almost three years, I had no work.
Abhimanyu Singh
I was just 17 when I made my debut for Lancashire against Hampshire at Portsmouth. I got seven and a duck. I didn’t get a wicket, either. Funnily enough, it was more nerve-wracking than playing for England.
Andrew Flintoff
Director Kabir Khan had read the script of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and is responsible for roping in Salman Khan for this film – a movie that will also mark as Salman’s debut production.
Rockline Venkatesh
One of the most enjoyable parts of the job is seeing a young fella who you give a debut to or you buy and see them progress.
Steve Bruce
I am as curious about my daughter’s acting debut as the rest of the world. I think Alia has got the best possible debut under the biggest banner. But it’s not going to be easy for her to go from the first to the second film smoothly.
Soni Razdan
California club pop chirper Dev’s debut is as stark as it is sweet. This is owed partly to the casually giddy lightness of her talk-singing – familiar from her slizzered 2010 cameo on Far East Movement’s smash ‘Like a G6,’ and around-the way-girl frisky like 1980s Latin freestyle.
Chuck Eddy
Honestly, I was not good in my debut film ‘Poster Boys.’ With my second film, ‘Laila Majnu,’ I was struggling with everything and I just felt lucky to even get the part.
Tripti Dimri
Roaring like a tiger turns some children into pianists who debut at Carnegie Hall but only crushes others. Coddling gives some the excuse to fail and others the chance to succeed.
Ayelet Waldman
After winning so many debut awards, I never thought I would win for ‘Ishaqzaade.’
Parineeti Chopra
We had ‘Forever Young’ since way before our debut.
It’s a dream come true as I await the release of my debut single ‘Krazy Konnection’ with Salim Merchant and then my debut album!
Armaan Malik
A lot of things have changed since I made my debut in 2004. The way cricket is played has changed. The kind of players that are coming in the Indian team are drastically different than what we were used to. My role is quite the same. You only evolve with time, and that’s what I am trying to do.
MS Dhoni
With a production house like Padmalya Films and a co-star like Mahesh Babu, ‘Atithi’ was just the right film to debut with.
Amrita Rao
It was a great feeling to score a century on Test debut. I got a lot of confidence.
Prithvi Shaw
What I can’t wait to show the world when I make my NBA debut is a player who can handle, shoot, go hard to the hoop, and defend.
Caris LeVert
I never thought 'Crook' wouldn't work with the audience

I never thought ‘Crook’ wouldn’t work with the audience – in fact, no actor ever has that in mind especially when it’s a debut film. It was shocking initially but I had to move on.
Neha Sharma
I’ve always worked with new directors. ‘Pyar Koi Khel Nahin’ with Sunny Deol, Anupam Kher’s debut film ‘Om Jai Jagdish,’ and Niraj Vohra’s ‘Khiladi’ were all first-time films.
Mahima Chaudhry
I guess making my debut outside of England would have been a bit more difficult but it was nice to debut somewhere that you’re familiar with.
Jofra Archer
For a Tamil debut, I wanted to make sure the script is the right one. We are hopeful ‘Bramhotsavam’ will be that film.
Mahesh Babu
Covering Richard Nixon’s triumphant run in 1968 turned out to be my last major assignment as a general correspondent for CBS News. In September of that year, ’60 Minutes’ made its debut and I began the best, the most fulfilling job a reporter could imagine.
Mike Wallace
On one night of my debut the Prince of Wales, the Princess, and the duchess of London came to see me. They loved me for what I was and what I gave them.
Lillie Langtry
I couldn’t be happier starting 2019 with this film ‘Haathi Mere Saathi.’ It’s the first time that I am doing a trilingual film which I’m excited about. It will be my Tamil and Telugu debut.
Shriya Pilgaonkar
It was one of the most exciting, perfect evenings of my life, my solo debut at Carnegie Hall. And knowing we were all there to raise money for Gay Men’s Health Crisis made the evening an extraordinary experience.
Bernadette Peters
I treat every camp the same. Every fight since my debut has always been a must-win.
Callum Smith
My journey to Sridevi started when I was preparing for my debut film ‘Shiva.’ I used to walk from Nagarjuna’s office in Chennai to a neighbouring street where Sridevi used to live, and I used to just stand and watch Sridevi’s house from outside her gate.
Ram Gopal Varma
I made my debut in 2006 and absolutely, there was the pressure of the cricket, but there was no social media. There was no direct feedback to your phone. If you wanted to, you could avoid it.
Alastair Cook
When I was 20 years old, my mom flew me for my first Broadway audition for ‘The Color Purple,’ and I only found out about it because I knew that Fantasia was in it, and so I went online to I was not a part of the union, but I flew there for the audition, and the next week I made my Broadway debut!
Todrick Hall
To be honest, from England Under-16s, through the 17s and 18s, really all the way through my youth career, I played at centre-half. For some reason, when I made my debut at Everton, I just played in central midfield, and it went from there.
Jack Rodwell
I felt very happy when people mentioned that I had done a good job in my debut flick.
Vijay Antony
There are quite some interesting roles. Just take my career for instance. I played a vivacious aerobics instructor in Porki.’ In my Telugu debut Bava,’ I played a lively girl from a village. In Udayan,’ my Tamil debut, I played a soft spoken Brahmin girl.
Pranitha Subhash
Moving from a first to a second album is an incredibly transitional time for any band because you never get to make one in a vacuum like you did with your debut.
Lauren Mayberry
I was aware of all the artists who make good debut records over the years, but no one hears them – and I wanted to make sure that didn’t happen in my case.
Terence Trent D’Arby
Whenever you fly into Louisville, you see a sign that says, ‘It’s Possible Here.’ I remember my first time seeing it – I think I was coming home from the studio in L.A. – I was working on my debut album, and I just thought, ‘Wow, it is possible here.’
Bryson Tiller
I’m not ashamed of my social media following, my Sports Illustrated swimsuit shoot, or the tough time I had in my LPGA debut, but these small facets of my life are easily manipulated by the Internet to get views, and they don’t define me as a person.
Paige Spiranac
I made a decent debut in Bollywood with ‘Dum Maaro Dum.’
Rana Daggubati
Yes it was we, are a few years back parted from our record company and took the album that we were making with them and released it independently in the United States had a number one Independent debut in the United States.
Isaac Hanson
It was my Old Trafford debut and it lasted about 60 minutes and my left leg and left ankle sort of gave way on me from a tackle from behind.
Dion Dublin
I didn’t debut in a film playing a diva.
Parineeti Chopra
