  1. Kareena deserves best actress she pure talented, top grosser also, she mantained her career for 12 years nearly as defeating top actress giving them a fight till the ends..she went through, ash, rani, preity, pc, kat. Anushka..they all talented but kareena stay at top..

  2. honestly its shocking to see kareena over vidya.. kareena movies were mainly due to brand names and male stars, vidya proved her mettle as an actress .. This is shocking ..

    • Vidya Balan is the only actress who knows what acting is and she mainly has the smarter audiences appreciating her who are not like other people sitting and voting for heroines. They have a life. Majority of the Indian audience have no clue what acting is. So they are happy with average acting skills. You ask me i would say the best is and has been Vidya only.

  3. Both the movies of Kareena Kapoor in 2011 were not became Hit because of her, but because of the 2 Big Male Superstars of both the films (Bodyguard and Ra.One). But the Dirt Picture became Super Hit only because of Vidya Balan and she also did a splendid job in ‘No One Killed Jessica’. So, please guys.. be smart.. think well and vote for Vidya… don’t just vote Kareena because she was the leading lady in your favourite stars’ films (Salman and Shahrukh).. be fair and honest to caste your vote.

  4. kareena kapoor iz gergeous,talented & a trUe aCTrEsS. .it doesn’t cAre who is dEr wit the kareEna kapOor. .we hav 2 sEe hw sHe iz showng her aCTNg in a veRy short & smAll role. .kaReena kapoOr dESerVes thIs tag of nO 1 HEROINE. .sHe iz & wil remains the beSt. . .sHe tRUely rockzz . . .

  5. Their is neligible difference between katrina and karrena but karrena is at first hence katrina is at second position.

  6. Ajay Devgan is the best hero and “Delhi Belly” is the film.so Ajay Devgan and Delhi Belly should get “best hero” and “best film” award respectively .

  7. No doubt, Vidya Balan is best actress of bollywood today….she consequently worked in women centric movies..& made them hit…She has superb guts n acting skills…even she is brand ambassador of indian film industry(bollywood) in overseas…her TRP value is great in overseas…

  8. Vidya Balan is superb actress..i love here acting…i m waiting for her next flick…her GHANCHAKKAR will be release on 21 june 2013…in mid she is going to marry on 22 dec 2012 with SRK( dont confuse..this SRK is Siddharth Roy Kapoor…CEO of UTV group)
