PIX: 2011's Boldest Girls In Showbiz
The year in movies was quite eventful. Box office records were smashed, new-age films became successful and pre-release promotional strategies acquired a whole new level.
In the meanwhile, we also got sensational glimpses of showbiz sirens in films, magazine covers and in one case, a whole customised calender, tantalising fans with their hot avatars.
We bring you the top sensations from this year.
After winning us over with her hot New York businesswoman character in last year's Aisha, Lisa Haydon smouldered in Rascals this year when she flaunted her model body in a bikini.
Quite an eye candy!

Kangna Ranaut's fuller body is a far cry from her petite frame during her early days in Bollywood.

Mallika may have packed her bags and left to chase her Hollywood dreams but it's difficult to stay away from your homeland for too long.
So Jalebi Bai whispered sweet nothings into her fans willing ears with sporadic appearances through the year.
One such appearance yielded this smoking hot topless cover for FHM magazine.

It was quite a visual treat to find leggy lass Deepika Padukone grace the cover of Maxim magazine.
The actress gave an eyeful to her fans in a black bra and hotpants. A flash of hot pink by way of a jacket sealed the deal.

Southern hottie Kajal Agarwal, who made her Bollywood debut opposite Ajay Devgn in Singham, was a picture of innocence as she posed topless in a polka-dotted pantyhose for an FHM cover.
That's ironic because the actress later alleged that the picture was morphed.

Veena Malik loves courting controversy.
First came her tussle with the artists' association over her new show on Imagine TV and then the FHM cover controversy.
Authenticity of the picture notwithstanding, the Pakistani actress did look great on the cover.

Kashmera Shah launched her calander featuring her in several bold avatars.
Let's just say there were ammo, leather and handcuffs invloved.

Vidya Balan conquered all with her seductive portrayal as Silk in The Dirty Picture.
