Our correspondent boards the Bollywood glam bus for a roller -coaster ride of 2011. The writer alphabetically checks out how each one fared in the past 12 months.
Aamir Khan, Abhay Deol, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Aamir Khan: Aamir remained mostly silent this year with his single release of 2011 DHOBI GHAT not impressing the critics and fans like the previous films. However, his produced movie, DELHI BELLY, made enough ripples and controversies at the box office. In fact, the raw 'gaalis' coupled with a unique manner of presentation proved one fact quite clearly, that it can only be a production of Aamir's intelligence and perfection. In the personal front, Aamir and his wife Kiran became proud parents of Azad Rao Khan. Their baby was born on Dec 1 through in-vitro fertilization (IVF) to a surrogate mother at a private clinic in Mumbai.
Abhay Deol: When you think of Abhay and his movies then you can always be assured that he has something new to offer. The talented actor and a favourite of the crossover genre joined the party of Hrithik Roshan and Farhan Akhtar, as they took up a trip of a lifetime in the movie ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA. Abhay earned lots of applause from his fans and the film went on to become a major 'hit' of the year.
Abhishek Bachchan: 2011 will remain one of the most memorable years for junior Bachchan as he became daddy in November. His wife Aishwarya gave birth to a baby boy after much pre-delivery reportage. Despite, all these good news, his films continued to put up unsatisfactory performance at the theatres. From GAME to DUM MAARO DUM, all tumbled down like nine pins.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: The gorgeous lady of B-town occupied the headlines for the entire year and that too for various reasons. If it was Madhur Bhandarkar's dream project HEROINE that made her come to limelight in the earlier part of the year, followed by the bitter exchanges when it was known that she is pregnant. Her pregnancy reports hogged attention in the second half. Finally all speculations and drama came to an end on November as she gave birth to a baby girl in a private medical facility at Mumbai. Now it is time for mummy Ash to give quality attention to her baby and keep guessing her name till it becomes the right time for the Bachchan's to declare it.
