9. Shilpa Shetty
Prior to this year, she was written off as a B-grade actress and one whose time had come and gone ages ago. However, her stint on Celebrity Big Brother UK truly rejuvenated her career like never before. She has become a well-known face in the United Kingdom and upheld great values while representing the Indian population. On the filmy front, she gave a wonderful performance in Anurag Basu’s Life in a Metro and was part of the tri-Deol hit Apne. At the same time, her musical Miss Bollywood is running to packed houses around Europe. Clearly, Shilpa has scored in each and every department this year and has taken every precaution to ensure that her name is never forgotten again. She is Shilpa Shetty — and you better remember it.
