RANBIR KAPOOR, AJAY DEVGN and AKSHAY KUMAR
Ranbir Kapoor: After playing a heart-broken rockstar in Imtiaz Ali's ROCKSTAR last year, Ranbir captivated his fans by playing the role of a deaf-mute man in BARFI!. The film bagged the nomination as India's entry at the Oscar in the foreign film category. However, the film finally failed to qualify for the best foreign language film category at the 85th Academy Awards.
Ajay Devgn: After portraying tough cop Inspector Bajirao Singham last year, Ajay was busy tickling the funny bone of the audience with films like BOL BACHCHAN and SON OF SARDAAR. However, in his real life the actor faced some serious moments when he engaged himself in a legal battle with Yash Raj Films over the release of his film SON OF SARDAAR. Ahead of the release, movie buffs witnessed fireworks when Devgn had sent a legal notice to Yash Raj Films and alleged that it was using its strong position in the industry and pressurising exhibitors to promote late filmmaker Yash Chopra's last directorial venture JAB TAK HAI JAAN over his SON OF SARDAAR.
Akshay Kumar: With five releases this year, Akki was surely one of the kings in B-town in 2012. Akshay made good impact on the box office as his films like HOUSEFULL 2, ROWDY RATHORE, OMG OH MY GOD! gained accolades from his fans besides doing good business this year. His last release of the year, KHILADI 786 is reportedly making impressive business. Coupled with southern beauty Asin, the original Khiladi of Bollywood still has the potential to draw his followers to the theatres. However, his attempts to capture the hearts of India movie buffs as space scientist Agastya in JOKER crashed badly.
