8. Saif Ali Khan
One man’s loss is another man’s gain. Shahid lost his lady love, Kareena, to Saif. Saif’s hook up with Kareena was one of the hottest gossips in the latter part of the year. It helped Saif stay in the headlines and also helped people keep their attention on him. But it wasn’t all fun for Saif, as he did some pretty solid work as well. He starred in Eklavya, for which he garnered much adulation for. He also starred in the Ta Ra Rum Pum, which failed at the box office, but his work in the film was still appreciated. He has started his own production house now and we can expect a film from him within a year or two. As for 2008, he has a nice lineup ahead with Race, Tashan, Roadside Romeo, and Kunal Kohli’s next.
