2008 was a year when quite a few newcomers made a mark in their very first film. Actors like Anushka, Asin, Adah and Prachi Desai made a thumping impression while Genelia D'Souza saw a revival in her career with JAANE TU JAANE NAA. Katrina Kaif got her hits but there wasn't a single performance that could make the cut into the Top-10 of the year while big guns like Priyanka Chopra, Aishwarya Rai, Bipasha Basu and Kajol continued to reign. Following list consists some of the best performances by a female actor in the year gone by.
PRACHI DESAI in ROCK ON
10) Prachi Desai (ROCK ON)
Her foray into the big screen was much welcomed with ROCK ON. An unconventional way to begin her Bollywood innings, what with playing the part of a married woman and no romantic angle per se, Prachi Desai was courageous enough to take a plunge into a film that had a director (Abhishek Kapoor) with a flop tag (ARYAN - THE UNBREKABLE) to his name. Still, with people like Farhan Akhtar, Ritesh Sidhwani, Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy attached to the project, she got herself a start with ROCK ON. The ploy worked and how! With a restrained performance, she was the person who got a certain 'thehrav' to the rocking proceedings of ROCK ON. The million dollar question is - 'Will she be able to be a part of the glam brigade from here on?'
