  • Katrina reigns Bollywood as queen bee
    New Delhi, Dec 25 (IANS) A-listers like Aishwarya Rai, Kareena Kapoor and Bipasha Basu failed to lure audiences this year, while lady luck's favourite Katrina Kaif and item girl Malaika Arora Khan along with some newcomers managed to keep the clock ticking for Bollywood heroines.

    Let's take a look at some Bollywood beauties who stood tall in 2010:

    Katrina Kaif

    Ramp to rampage - this model-turned-actress has taken Bollywood by storm. Continuing her habit of turning a movie into a hit, the gorgeous face with a stiff upper lip that has now gone desi rocked the box office with her chaste Hindi volleys in Prakash Jha's political thriller "Raajneeti". And if that wasn't it, she stood out to wipe out mankind with her pelvic thrusts in the item number "Sheila ki jawani" from her latest outing "Tees Maar Khan". Katrina is leaving no stone unturned to enchant the public with her best.

    Malaika Arora Khan

    She has the look, the moves and knows how to groove. If Bollywood is synonymous with 'jhatkas' and 'matkas', it doesn't get bigger than this as Malaika left audiences gawking with her hump...her hump, her hump in the item number "Munni badnaam hui" from "Dabangg". Have feet, will dance but won't act. And did one notice, this one's got a surname too to hang on to - Khan!

    Vidya Balan

    If the leading ladies in B-Town hit the gym with a vengeance to shed the extra kilos, Vidya hogged until she turned herself into a deglam, voluptuous and conniving woman for "Ishqiya". Mouthing expletives soaked in chemical derivatives, this "Parineeta" girl turned femme fatale and left men scratching their brains.

    Kajol

    There is nothing that she can't do. Daughter, actress, wife, mother - Kajol's dormant comings and goings on the big screen took a surprise turn when the dusky beauty returned with three outings this year, "My Name is Khan", "We Are Family" and "Toonpur Ka Superhero". No matter the box office fate, she is one performer the audience would give anything to watch. However, leaving them wanting for more, the mother of two is now headed for a three-year sabbatical.

    Konkona Sen Sharma

    She already has to her credit powerful movies, the scripts of which some actresses wouldn't even dare read. And KoKo, as she is fondly called, surprised the masses with her metro wifey avatar in the comedy "Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?" before enacting a lawyer in "Right Yaaa Wrong" and a sexually aggressive woman in "Mirch". Talk about her acting prowess, if one had a parameter to judge, this one deserves nothing but a 10 on 10.

    Neetu Singh

    As calm as a river and still sporting the fresh glow of the morning sunshine, yesteryear heroine Neetu Singh made a full-fledged comeback in "Do Dooni Char" 27 years after bidding adieu to celluloid. Bringing a smile on one's face with her acting nuances and immaculate chemistry with actor hubby Rishi Kapoor, she just proved she still has it in her to win people's hearts.

    Kangana Ranaut

    Perhaps the most unfortunate of talents this year, she was almost jostling for space in multi-starrers like "Kites", "Knock Out" and "No Problem" but believe you or not, this golden gem did make her presence felt with her glitter in Milan Luthria's retro underworld saga "Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai".

    Shalini Vatsa

    Ever thought Dhaniya from "Peepli Live" would have an M. Phil degree? No one did, but this full time theatre actress left audiences applauding at her rants in the satire with her splendid portrayal of a rustic, illiterate, short-tempered mother of three with zeal.

    Malaika Shenoy

    Model, actress and voice-over artiste, this Mumbai-based girl got her due with "Peepli Live". Her experience as a TV presenter in reality came handy to bring out the poise, panache and perfection of a star reporter in the black comedy which she edgily used to cast a dig at one real female scribe. Thanks to her involvement in the vibrant English theatre movement in Mumbai, her performance simply couldn't go unnoticed.

    Sonakshi Sinha

    What would you do if your debut project was with none other than Salman The Khan? Hit the metal and cut down flab! Perhaps the perfect example of fat to fab, Shatru 'Shotgun' Sinha's daughter made a "Dabangg" debut in the year's highest grosser. Getting into the star mode day by day, this one's sure a dark horse.

    Anushka Sharma

    Petite, pretty and now pricey. This 22-year-old couldn't have asked for more. In two outings with the Yash Raj banner in the year - "Badmaash Company" and "Band Baaja Baaraat" - she managed to persuade audiences of her potential with her Delhi 'kudi' role in the latter.
