She is not the stereotypical Bollywood actress, she is neither beautiful as Katrina nor she has a size zero figure like Kareena. Yet, there is something endearing about Vidya Balan that makes her all the more special. Touted as thinking man’s muse, Vidya Balan had a great run this year. After hitting the bull’s eye with ‘No One Killed Jessica’ early on the year, Vidya took Bollywood by storm with her astounding portrayal of Silk Smitha in ‘The Dirty Picture’. Vidya wooed the audience and critics alike with her power packed performance as a matinee idol, whose single look would send men into ecstasy.
Talking of male stars, ‘Rockstar’ made Ranbir Kapoor an overnight sensation and had the audience eating out of his hand. Just four-years-old in the industry, Ranbir Kapoor enjoyed mixed luck at Box Office until Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Rockstar’ saw the light of the day. ‘Rockstar’ might not have hit the marquee but Ranbir Kapoor’s Janardan Jakhar aka Jordan act had huge fan following.
