Bollywood has seen quite a few hits and misses in the first quarter of the year.
But some of the biggest films are yet to hit the screen, and the actors are working hard to get it right.
Which actor will come out on top at the end of 2012? Who do YOU think this year belongs to? Have a look at the films keeping the actors busy, and vote at the end of the slide show!
Salman, who's had an incredible streak at the box office, has two big banner films -- Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg 2 -- to look forward to this year.
While Ek Tha Tiger is a romantic thriller where he reunites with ex-flame Katrina Kaif, Dabangg 2 is the much awaited sequel to his 2010 blockbuster.
Aamir Khan is returning to the big screen after wife Kiran Rao's Dhobi Ghat with Reema Kagti's Talaash that also stars Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji.
Khan was apparently so impressed with the film's script that he decided to pay scriptwriters Kagti and Zoya Akhtar a share of the film's royalties.
Shah Rukh Khas is returning to what he does best -- romance.
Paired opposite Katrina Kaif for the first time, SRK's still untitled Yash Chopra film is generating a lot of interest.
Akshay Kumar has as many as four releases this year.
While Housefull 2 has already opened to full houses, we will also see him in Joker, Rowdy Rathore and Khiladi 786 later this year.
Ranbir Kapoor's gearing up to hit the screens with Anurag Basu's Barfee.
He's also shooting for Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani with former girlfriend Deepika Padukone, as well as Kalki Koechlin and Aditya Roy Kapoor.
Ajay Devgn will be seen in three films this year.
While the shooting for Son Of Sardar and Bol Bachchan is on, another film Tezz costarring Anil Kapoor is currently under post production.
Emraan Hashmi is slowly making his way into the fine actors' club, if his recent films are any indication.
After receiving accolades for his role in The Dirty Picture, the actor is all set to dazzle again with Dibakar Banerjee's impressive-looking Shanghai, two sequels -- Raaz 3 and Jannat 2 -- and Rush, where he plays a reporter.
Imran Khan started the year well with Shakun Batra's Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu doing good business.
His next is Vishal Bhardwaj's curiously titled Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola, opposite Anushka Sharma.
Here's hoping that the scruffy beard he's sporting for the film is worth the effort.
Abhishek Bachchan hasn't had much luck at the BO lately. His film Players had a dismal performance earlier this year.
But the actor has Bol Bachchan and Raaste to look forward to.
Saif Ali Khan may not have received the response he was aiming for with his production, Agent Vinod, but he has Cocktail and Go Goa Gone to look forward to.
Both comedies will be produced under Saif's banner as well.
He will also be seen in Race 2.
Sanjay Dutt is having a super year.
After a grand performance in Agneepath, he will be seen in Son Of Sardar, Race 2, Zilla Ghaziabad and Department this year.
John Abraham is basking in the success of Housefull 2.
He'll be next seen in I, Me aur Main and Shootout At Wadala.
He also shows off his biceps in an item number in his debut production Vicky Donor, to be released this week.
Hrithik Roshan is at the top of his game.
After the supersuccessful Agneepath, the leading man is preparing for the superhero sequel Krissh 3.
