With Ready and Bodyguard, Salman Khan has proved that he is a force to be reckoned with. Whether it was his “modern zamane ka kutta” or his “Bodyguard Lovely Singh reporting madam”, Salman was the man of the year.

2. Ajay Devgan

After dabbling with comedy and romance, Ajay Devgan returned to his original love – action. And boy did he show us how! The lion roared with Singham and it will hopefully echo next year as well.

3. Ranbir Kapoor

He had a cute little item number in Chillar Party, but he turned a whole new leaf for Rockstar. He may not have had to drop his towel this time, but Ranbir Kapoor floored the audience and critics alike.

4. Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan was the superhero of the year – minus the cape and the mask. SRK unleashed an unprecedented promotional campaign for Ra.One and then returned as the Don in Don 2.

5. Hrithik Roshan

7. Farhan Akhtar

It must be genetics. No wonder Farhan Akhtar can make a seamless shift from acting in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara to the stylish direction of Don 2.

8. Emraan Hashmi

Thanks to Sunny Deol and the success of his Yamla Pagla Deewana, ‘dhai kilo ka haath’ jokes made a comeback. And we want more of the skull-bashing Sunny back on screen!
