The Race for the top slot amongst actresses is heating up especially in the year 2010 as all top actresses are having some very interesting projects which are both commercially and critically viable.
Priyanka Chopra may have stumbled with Pyaar Impossible but she is having the hugely anticipated Vishal Bharadwaj film Saat Khoon Maaf, then there’s Siddharth Anand's Anjaana Anjaani with Ranbir Kapoor followed by Kites director Anurag Basu’s Silence starring Ranbir once again.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is back with a bang. Mani Ratnam’s Raavan looks very impressive. Then there’s Shankar’s Robot opposite Rajnikanth, Vipul Shah’s Action Replayy with Akshay Kumar and the biggie Guzaarish where she is paired with Hrithik while Sanjay Leela Bhansali directs her again after Devdas.
Kareena Kapoor is hugely in demand. Much delayed Milenge Milenge will rekindle Jab We Met chemistry with old flame Shahid, Golmaal 3 with Rohit Shetty is a hot project, Ra.1 with the king himself Shahrukh Khan, Stepmom Remake with Kajol is a Dharma Production that’s keenly anticipated, Agent Vinod is all set to start shortly where she is paired with Saif while hopefully Madhur Bhandarkar’s film will be green-lighted soon as well.
Katrina Kaif is making waves for her de-glam role in Raajneeti where her chemistry with Ranbir will be closely watched. Zoya Akhtar’s Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara will have her doing her first film with Hrithik and then Farah Khan’s Tees Maar Khan is said to be a Christmas dhamaaka.
My Name Is Khan has given a solid start to Kajol this year. She also has Stepmom Remake that will surely create waves. Apart from these big stars there’s Deepika Padukone who started the year on a false note with Karthik Calling Karthik, redeemed somewhat by Housefull but she has Lafangey Parindey with Neil Nitin Mukesh directed by Pradip Sarkar and Break Ke Baad opposite Imran Khan so there’s still hope for her.
So amongst these actresses whom do you think has a good chance of emerging on top? Do let me know your choices……
