Book Launch : Bollywood’s Top 20 Superstars of Indian Cinema

Hindi cinema has cast a seductive spell over its spectators for close to a century now. Visually arresting, dynamic in outlook and pulsating with life, Bollywood has entertained and enthralled moviegoers over the years with its melodious music, its colourful drama and its lively plotlines. At the very heart of the Bollywood mystique is the towering presence of its galaxy of stars—demigods and divas who have shaped and defined popular cinema, and popular imagination, from one generation to the next. Bollywood’s Top 20 is an exciting collection of brand new essays by renowned writers that pays tribute to Hindi popular cinema’s biggest stars of all time—from Ashok Kumar, Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Raj Kapoor, Nargis and Madhubala to Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Kareena Kapoor—who are indispensable to the Bollywood pantheon. Each piece offers unique insights into the lives of Bollywood’s most exceptional legends—their struggles and triumphs, downfalls and scandals, and the inscrutable x-factor that made them carve a niche for themselves in an industry bursting with talented professionals and desperate hopefuls.

    And needless to say, Kareena is least deserved candidate for superstar status. Shridevi and Rekha were notches above. Except a semi hit JWM, what she has in her kitty to be proud of ?

    Kareena doesnt even deserve to b in dis book(forget cover)

    even priynka,vidya,katrina,anushka,deepika,kangana r way ahead of dat pathetic crap of an actress.

    She has had a bucketfull of huge flops in her career and comparatively kat,vidya r wayyy way ahead.

    Just bcz she is a star daughter, has been able to make constant news abt herself and signed big projects wid stars dat uski do kaudi ki aukaat hain.

    And vich A-grade actress has a fking MMS to her credit…Desparate Attempt.

    What did she evn do in bg,ra1,3i.???

    And she just had 3 back to back flops aftr bg while priyanka,vidya and katrina being frm outside d industry have had bak to bak 2 Huge Hits.

    Infact,kat and vidya r highly consistent at the BO.
