The year 2010 was marked by some very beautiful, talented and of course sexy girls who made their debut in the tinsel town and left the cinegoers panting for more. Interestingly, more girls stepped in than the boys, the only male debutant to get noticed being Ranvir Singh who got appreciation for his performance in ‘Band Baaja Baraat’. Though, there are many names which made their presence felt, we list down our top 5 favorite debutant hotties:
She is definitely the most promising and the most talked about debutant in the year 2010 who gave a huge hit with the biggest box office collections with ‘Dabangg’ where she starred opposite none other than Salman Khan himself. Being Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter, the tinsel town was not new for her but the entire credit for her fan following goes to her poise and performance alone.
This Mexican beauty created more stirs with the rumors of her alleged affair with Hrithik Roshan than her performance in ‘Kites’. The movie failed miserably at the box office and though none can question her oomph and appeal and her perfect, sizzling chemistry with Hrithik Roshan, she failed to set cash registers ringing with her Bollywood debut.
This British actress set temperatures soaring as she looked amazingly sexy in her bold and bikini clad avatar in her debut film ‘Prince. There after, this bold actress with doe-like eyes and a svelte body went a step ahead and shed her clothes further for ‘Mr Singh Mrs Mehta’ in a few scenes.
Though Trisha is a successful and known name down South, she made her debut in Bollywood with ‘Khatta Meetha’ where she was paired with Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar. However, the role was not a very glamorous one and it failed to give the desired push to her career in Bollywood.
Super model Lisa Hayden, half Malayali and half Australian created waves with her debut in Aisha. Lisa was busy walking the ramp in fashion weeks until Bollywood knocked at her door. She was seen as Abhay Deol’s friend in the movie Aisha. It may be mentioned here that Anil Kapoor himself approached her for the role.
Katrina Kaif rocked the nation with her sexy avatar in ‘Tees Maar Khan’ and especially her item song ‘Sheila Ki Jawaani’. Now, the actress will be seen in a role in dire contrast to what she played in TMK. This Prakash Jha film titled ‘Satsang’ will see Kats as a woman clad in an ochre robe and in search of spirituality. This upcoming film exposes the multi-billion global religion factory in India.
Her role in Satsang is so complex that even Jha was not sure, initially, if the actress could deliver. “It would be the most challenging part of my career so far,” says Katrina.
She plays the central character in the film which is semi-autobiographical in nature and is that of a woman from the West in search of Oriental spiritualism. Katrina will be seen sans makeup for the film and will have to get informed on the intricacies of the multi-billion religious industry in India.”
Katrina is already geared up for the role and says, “Prakashji and I have discussed the part in detail. This is one film that I’ve do the most preparation for. I’m open to the challenge.”
Madhuri Dixit is one star Bollywood is proud of and can never get enough of her. Post marriage Madhuri has kept away from cameras devoting her time and attention to kids and family. Her last film was ‘Aaja Nach Le’ which failed to create a spark at the box office but this has not faded the lady’s adoration in any way.
Now, the reports have it that she may play the role of Sonam Kapoor’s mother in Anil Kapoor’s remake of the Hollywood film, ‘Freaky Friday’. The film revolves around a mother and daughter who magically swap roles for a day.
Bollywood actresses like Shabhana Azmi, Rekha and Kirron Kher had been previousle approached for the role but they all gave a no to the project due to date problems. Now, Madhuri is being considered for the role and if she says yes, it would fulfil Anil Kapoor’s wish which was expresses when he said that he would like to work with his former leading lady again.
Her secretary and previous manager, Rakesh Nath has said, “She has got four-five very good offers. She will definitely do another film soon, but this time we have to be very careful. I’ve worked with other actresses, but Madhuriji is Madhuriji.”
Well, some part of the story definitely seems to be true as Madhuri has tweeted, “Meeting with Anil Kapoor today. Lets see what happens….”
MJ Group firm XXX Energy Drinks Limited is eyeing on a Rs 100 crore expansion plan next year and wants Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan as the brand ambassador of its products.
“We are in talks to get Shah Rukh Khan as brand ambassador… We will officially announce in March or April next year,” JMJ Group Vice Chairman Sachin Joshi told PTI.
The company said it is looking at setting up its first facility and is deciding on the place. It could be either in Pune or Dubai, where it currently manufactures its products through third party.
“To set up a manufacturing facility, we need to do a substantial business first. By 2012, hopefully we would start setting up a plant, which could entail an investment of $10 million (Rs 45 crore),” he said, adding that the capacity of the plant will be around three million cans a month.
At present, the firm sells four brands – XXX, Rejuve, Nicofix and Minus, in India and abroad.
The first look of ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ is out and apart from the unique and interesting pairing of R.

2010 has been mixed year for Bollywood box office with some very ambitious projects turning out to be disasters at the ticket window and small efforts going on to receive big appreciation. This year has also seen many films released worldwide. These include some of the year’s highest-grossing films, such as Dabangg, Golmaal 3, Raajneeti, My Name is Khan, Housefull, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, I Hate Luv Storys and moderately successful films, such as Anjaana Anjaani, Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?, Badmaash Company, Ishqiya, Khatta Meetha and Peepli Live. Though we have tried out to pick out the best 5 movies of the year, the list is not all inclusive and all exactly based on the box office collections. Here is our list of top 5 Bollywood movies of 2010:
Directed by Abhinav Singh Kashyap and starring Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Arbaaz Khan, Vinod Khanna, and Dimple Kapadia, Dabangg is definitely the biggest hit of 2010, breaking ‘3 Idiots’ record of highest collection in the first week. It got the highest opening on the first day and the highest weekend gross as well. Dabangg was Kashyap’s directorial debut, Arbaaz’s first production and actress Sonakshi Sinha’s first film. ‘Munni Badnaam Hui’ shot on Malaika Arora Khan had been a rage on all the music channels and stage shows. An out and out masala film, Dabangg stood out to be highest grosser of 2010.
The film had an impressive cast of Naseeuddin Shah, Arshad Warsi, and Vidya Balan and was directed by Abhishek Chaubey. The key point of the film was its tight script, perfect screenplay and power packed performances by all the three lead characters. The song Dil Toh Bachcha hai Ji was such a huge hit that Madhur Bhandarkar’s forthcoming movie is titled the same.
Once Upon a Time In Mumbai
Making a slow start at the box office, the film took off to being a big hit and also received critical appreciation. Ajay Devgan and Emraan Hashmi stood out with their acting performances. Directed by Milan Lutharia, the film had Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Kangna Ranaut, Prachi Desai, and Randeep Hooda in the lead roles.
After ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani’, Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif managed yet another hit with ‘Rajneeti’. Directed by Prakash Jha, the film had a host of stars including Ranbir Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, Katrina Kaif, Nana Patekar, Manoj Bajpai, Arjun Rampal, and Naseeruddin Shah. Raajneeti got mixed reviews. Yet, it did very well at the box office, especially in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.
This was another different, yet a prized delivery from Aamir Khan Productions. Directed by Anusha Rizvi, the film had talented artists like Raghubir Yadav, Omkar Das, Malaika Shenoy, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead. Peepli [Live] went to many international festivals, and even competed at the Sundance Film Festival. It also went on to become India’s Oscar entry.
‘Yamla Pagla Deewana’ marks the dance debut of the Sydney-born actress Emma Brown Garrett in the tinsel town. Emma plays Sunny Deol’s Canadian wife in “Yamla Pagla Deewana” which is set to release on Jan 14. It has been a commendable performance from Emma who took her steps right on the difficult bhangra beats matching it with Punjabi boys Sunny, Bobby and their father, Dharmendra, in the peppy title track of the movie. She has also gone for a blonde look from her brunette hairs for the role.
Talking about her experience in Bollywood, Emma says, “This is my first dance sequence and it was a great experience! Bollywood dancing seems very exciting, but I have realized it is very difficult and tough. Hats off to the choreographers and all Indian actresses for pulling off the steps so well and that too with perfectly coordinated expressions. It takes a lot of hard work.
My dance is a mixture of traditional and contemporary. The choreographers had a challenge not just with the song, which is a remix version of an old song, but also my limitations as a dancer. But they have done a wonderful job.”
Emma has already worked in the Bengali film “Shukno Lanka” with Mithun Chakraborty, and after “Yamla Pagla Deewana”, she will be seen as a Russian girl in Rohan Sippy’s “Dum Maro Dum”.
“I am glad that a ‘gori’ coming from abroad has been welcomed with open arms in such a huge industry. I have been lucky to have worked with fantastic actors like Mithunda, Dharmendra sir and Abhishek Bachchan already, and I definitely look forward to more masala films in India,” says the Australian beauty.
Seems that Bollywood actors and actresses are out there to try out any stunt for publicizing their flicks. It has not been long when Ranbir Kapoor and Imraan Khan kissed each other at ‘Koffee with Karan’ and now, Rani Mukherjee and Vidya Balan got bold enough to lock lips at a promotional event. The pics are doing rounds on the internet and is supposed to be from a stage event clicked in the recent past when the two ladies were out there promoting their to be released ‘No On Killed Jessica’. It may be mentioned here that Rani Mukherjee plays a bold character in the movie and has effortlessly mouthed a lot of bold dialogues for the role.
Rani and Vidya had been sharing cold vibes in the past. However, the fight is over now. Both actresses are professionals in real life and thus they agreed to take that extra step to promote No One Killed Jessica well. Here is a part of the conversation that led to this passioanate kiss:
Rani: So, what about the rumours that we had problems?
Vidya: Well, lovers’ tiffs happen. I get upset, you placate me, you get upset, and I placate you. Sometimes flowers work, sometimes chocolates. I think in your case flowers do the magic. Do we really look that we’re having a problem? We can prove otherwise.
Rani: Come here … (they do a lip-lock, almost). Mwaah! Lovely! Only for zoOm.
Vidya: No, only for Rani. Dekhte rahiye …
Rani (laughing): Vidya, actually I’m getting quite distracted by your red lipstick. What do I do?
Vidya (covering her mouth): Okay, I will talk like this. Ha, ha, ha!
Rani: If you had to do my role in the film, would you do it differently?
Vidya: I would’ve surely done it differently, but I’ve said this million times in the past that I don’t think anyone could’ve played this role as believably as you have.
Rani: On this note, another kiss. (Kisses Vidya passionately on the mouth and Vidya responds). Now Vidya’s already looking tired, mmnnn … that says a lot about me.
Rani: Three things about me you don’t particularly like and you could never tell me. That should be easy, Vidya.
Vidya: The fact that I’m always the first person who has to say sorry after a fight. I’m the one to call you at night, but you never do. And thirdly, the fact that I can’t stop laughing when we’re together.
