Following in Little B’s, footsteps, the baadshah of Bollywood himself, Shahrukh Khan, took the ‘item boy’ status a bit further as he jived to Kaal Dhamaal with Malaika Arora Khan. It got more exposure than One Love but we still can’t term it a classic. Overshadowing all other item numbers of the year by leaps and bounds was the deadly triple A combo—Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai (ironically now a Bachchan too!). It was the year of the Kajra Re which will undoubtedly imprint itself as legendary. When the album Bunty Aur Babli first released, nobody really gave the song the time of day. But as soon as it was immortalized by the three stars, it caught on…and how!

Both choreographer Vaibhavi Merchant and singer Alisha Chinoy took home a handful of awards for this song.
