What are your favourite actresses working on?

Shaikh Ayaz in Mumbai
Looks like actresses are finally taking over in Bollywood -- some of the biggest upcoming films generating all the buzz don't actually belong to heroes, but to heroines.

For instance, there's immense interest in Vidya Balan as Silk Smitha in The Dirty Picture or Kareena Kapoor's Marilyn Monroe-meets-Madhubala act in Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine.

Then, one supposes it's only fair to clock the upcoming releases that you are likely to see your favourite actresses in.

Take a look at what you can expect from Kartina Kaif, Deepika Padukone and the other hotties...

Katrina Kaif in Dhoom 3

The Dhoom franchise is getting bigger. With Aamir Khan as baddie, Katrina is toning down to fit into a bikini. The actress has avoided skin exposure so far (though she did sizzle in Boom, eons ago). In Ek Tha Tiger, she pairs up with ex Salman Khan.

Not to forget Yash Chopra's next big one.

Teaming up with beau Saif Ali Khan in what looks like Vijay Anand-meets-James Bond pulp thriller, this Chammak Challo has the most balanced bag of movies currently -- from the author-backed Heroine to pairing up with her favourite Khan in Talaash (Aamir, not Saif).

Vidya Balan in The Dirty Picture

Talk of the town, Vidya looks like she was meant to portray a voluptuous beauty who uses her body to her advantage. Vidya put on weight indiscriminately, first for Ishqiya and now for The Dirty Picture.

Her biggest fan, designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, puts it best, "She has the kind of sensuality the common man wants to see."

After the disastrous Aarakshan, Deepika turns to rom-com in this Akshay Kumar-John Abraham-starrer. So far, it's her cat fights with co-star Chitrangada Singh that's kept the film in the news.

Bipasha Basu in Players

Exotic locales, uber glamorous heroines and pulsating thrills, Players is a typical Abbas Mustan fare. That basically means the heroines (there are two here) will be treated like showpiece furniture.

Despite the handicap, Bipasha Basu is turning on the heat in the promos (catch her in that smokin' red bikini).

Back in the company of old friend Aamir, Rani is hoping to resuscitate her career with Talaash.

She had already silenced her detractors to an extent with No One Killed Jessica as a feisty journalist earlier this year.

Sonam Kapoor in Players

With the ghosts of Mausam behind her, Sonam badly needs a hit to be in contention. Players could be the kind of project Sonam may have marked herself out for.

Don't forget the Kareena formula: it doesn't matter how big or meaty is your role so long as the film is a blockbuster.

Priyanka Chopra in Agneepath

A talenthouse who's yet to realise her true potentials, Priyanka can pull a few surprises in Agneepath, a film that seems to be set in the Maharashtrian underworld.

If Priyanka's Marathi mulgi act in Kaminey is anything to go by, Piggy Chops has another ace up her sleeve.

A reincarnation of Juhi Chawla in some sense, this very organic, natural actress has become a favourite for filmmakers looking for the Janakpuri-style firebrands.

More than Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, one is waiting to see how Vishal Bhardwaj moulds her in Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola.

It seems the actress has been working with an international trainer to get into perfect shape for this film.

Given that it's her first production, Preity is leaving no stone unturned.
