Priyanka Chopra (Drona, Fashion, Dostana, Chamku, God Tussi Great Ho, Love Story 2050)
What a year! Six releases—two hits and four flops. Though several of her films have been inconsequential this year, Dostana and Fashion have catapulted Priyanka back to the spot she once held a few years ago. It seems Priyanka has finally risen from her hat-trick of flops which began early last year and continued all the way until Drona. But Madhur Bhandarkar’s Fashion has done the trick—Priyanka’s mind blowing performance has proven that she has finally emerged a winner. On the other hand, her effortless performance in Dostana has gotten her great commercial acclaim. So despite the horrendous flops, Priyanka’s two rock-solid performances have shown that she’s easily the most improved celebrity of the year. Let’s hope this continues into 2009!
Like every year, some celebrities fall and others shoot up. Though we sometimes grimace at those that have fallen into a slump, it’s always nice to look back at celebrities that have emerged with renewed energy. For now, let’s hope it lasts.
