2013 definitely belonged to the Chennai Express babe
Deepika Padukone emerged as a clear winner of BollywoodLife’s ‘Biggest Entertainer of the Year 2013’ poll, beating Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra with a large margin. Ms Padukone can celebrate yet another victory and a title that’s handed out to her by Bollywood fans. Deepika had four back-to-back hits this year. She started the year with Race 2 to and leaped forward with Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani opposite ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor and continued her success streak with Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express opposite Shahrukh Khan. With an almost perfect Bollywood innings she concluded the year with Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela opposite her alleged beau Ranveer Singh. And the saw a lot of Dippy’s success than any Khan’s. Looks like the audience loved Deepika too, for in BL’s poll of the most entertaining heroine, DP got 46 percent (11,795) votes followed closely by the Dhoom:3 star who got 39 percent (9,944) votes and stood second. With only one release this year Kat managed to beat Priyanka Chopra who had Krrish 3, Zanjeer and two item songs in Ram-Leela and Shootout at Wadala. Looks like neither her Badmash Babli avatar nor her sensuous Ram-Leela song managed to win the audiences’ hearts. PeeCee stood third with a meager 8 percent (2,050) votes.
The Exotic babe was followed closely by her cousin Parineeti Chopra and Sonakshi Sinha both of who bagged 3 percent (659 & 655 each) votes. While Parineeti had only one release Shudh Desi Romance, Sonakshi had four releases this year – Lootera, Once Upon Ay Time in Mumbai Dobaara, Bullett Raja and R…Rajkumar. Sonam Kapoor stood last with just 1 percent (380) for her act in Raanjhanaa and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
Looks like we now know who is the No 1 heroine of B-town after looking at last year’s performances, na BollywoodLifers?
