4. Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor
One of the biggest stories of the year was the break-up of these two stars right before the release of their new film, Jab We Met. How would the movie do? Would people believe the jodi of these two on screen even with the romantic changes between them? The answer was a resounding YES! The two were brilliant in Jab We Met: Kareena, the flighty one who lives life to the fullest, and sad, serious Shahid, switching personalities after the interval. Factor in the perfect script, and their performance as a couple became one of the best of the year. They played off of each other perfectly, and the film was truly a total romance (or, as a friend called it, a “total chick flick”). We hope that despite the fact that they are no longer a real life couple, we will see this shining “reel life” couple together again.
