Mumbai: While 2017 may have been a low phase for superstars whose movie either did average business or were completely neglected. Salman Khan gave ‘Tubelight’ in the year, and Shah Rukh too got his share of disappointment from the audience in ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’. Tiger Shroff’s ‘Munna Michael’, Ajay Devgn’s ‘Baadshaho’, Arjun Kapoor-Shraddha Kapoor’s ‘Half Girlfriend’, Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif’s ‘Jagga Jasoos’, Sidharth Malhotra-Jacqueline Fernandez’s ‘A Gentleman’, Sushant Singh Rajput-Kriti Sanon’s ‘Raabta’, Shraddha-Aditya Roy Kapur’s ‘Ok Jaanu’ and Shahid Kapoor-Saif Ali Khan-Kangana Ranaut starrer ‘Rangoon’ were also completely shunned. Aamir Khan’s ‘Secret Superstar’, which released with Ajay Devgn starrer ‘Golmaal Again’ also made fair business compared to his usual Box Office collections. But the year wasn’t bad at all for Bhumi Pednekar, who had two hits (yet again) in Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ and Ayushmann Khurrana starrer ‘Shubh Mangal Saavdhan’ and Vicky Kaushal, who has been roped in for interesting projects like Meghna Gulzar's ‘Raazi’ with Alia Bhatt, Rajkumar Hirani's biopic on actor Sanjay Dutt and Karan Johar's ‘Love and Lust’, a series of four short films, ‘Uri’, based on the 2016 surgical strikes, and Anurag Kashyap's ‘Manmarziyan’ If that wasn’t enough, he will also be seen in ‘Love Per Square Foot’, a Netflix original film.
Bhumi, aged 28, is currently shooting for Abhishek Chaubey's ‘Son Chiraiya’, which also stars Sushant Singh Rajput. Vicky Kaushal, 29, is awaiting the release of ‘Raazi’. They made it to the list along with Mithila Parkar and singer Jubin Nautiyal. Here are their tweets:
Mithila, a youtube sensation, is currently being eyed for her upcoming movie ‘Karwaan’, which stars Irrfan Khan and Malayalam heartthrob Dulquer Salmaan. She has also been the speaker at Tedx Talks last year. Jubin, singer of ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ song ‘Kuch Toh Bata Zindagi’, has been involved with quite a few songs, but his remix version of ‘Humma Humma’ from the movie ‘Ok Jaanu’ garnered 222 million hits on YouTube.
The list also honoured sports personalities like Jasprit Bumrah, Harmanpreet Kaur, Savita Punia and Heena Sidhu.
