2012's Best Comeback? Sridevi, Rani or Ayesha Takia

For a film industry that has had quite a strict expiration date for its leading ladies, Bollywood saw a record number of comebacks in 2012.

While only a few of them managed to win back their fans, certain others were let down by the roles given to them and substandard plots.

Here's a look at 2012's comeback queens.

Sridevi

The Hawa hawai girl, 49, made one of the most successful comebacks in recent times with a role that was meant for her to portray.

Gauri Shinde's delightful English Vinglish proved that Sridevi has a lot more to offer as an actress.

After a high profile wedding to New Delhi-based industrialist Sanjay Kapur and motherhood, Karisma Kapoor's return to films was marked by a rather insipid movie.

Dangerous Ishhq was like watching the actress step into one of the many poorly-made films from the 1990s.

Rani Mukerji probably meant well when she signed Aiyyaa.

Masquerading as a quirky, fun film about a woman expressing her sexuality, Aiyya probably got lost in translation with its off-putting., bizarre humour.

Manisha Koirala, one of the finest actresses of her time, made a comeback with Ram Gopal Varma's Bhoot Returns.

It won't be wrong to say that the actress was let down solely by her director.
