Your turn to tell us. Vote!

From Nargis to Nutan, from Madhubala to Madhuri, from Hema to Sridevi, and Karisma and Priyanka and Kajol and Kareena... the list is long and impressive.

Deepika, today, is the queen of all she surveys.

Anushka provides healthy competition.

Kangana won't be ignored.

But who is the princess of today, and the queen of tomorrow?

Who is the Next Superstar?

You vote. You tell us.



Janhvi Kapoor

Janhvi's the daughter of the gorgeous Sridevi. And the powers-that-be in the industry love her.

Just four films old and she's already played a double role in the recently released Roohi.

In her kitty is Dostana 2.


Sara Ali Khan

Sara was a hit even before her first film, Kedarnath, released. Her fun moophat appearance on Koffee With Karan saw to that. It even left abba Saif Ali Khan stumped and brought vivid memories of her mother, the fiery Amrita Singh.

Like Jahnvi -- the two girls are often pitted against each other in the race to the top -- Sara too has starred in four films.

Now, she looks forward to Atrangi Re, opposite Akshay Kumar.


Ananya Panday

Karan Johar picked Chunky Pandey's daughter, Ananya, for the remake of his triumphant Student Of The Year.

While SOTY2 wasn't as dazzlingly successful as the first, it did catapult Ananya into stardom. 

Her next two films see her costar with Vijay Deverakonda and Deepika Padukone respectively.

She's hot. She's sexy. She acts. She dances. She sings. And she has a twin sister.

Tara made an impact in her debut film, SOTY2, and will reunite with its hero, Tiger Shroff, in Heropanti 2.

You'll also see her in Ek Villain Returns and Tadap, which will get a lot of attention because it marks the debut of Suniel Shetty's son, Ahan.


Bhumi Pednekar

Six years ago, a roly-poly assistant casting director-turned actress debuted on the big screen and stole our hearts with her swag in Dum Laga Ke Haisha.

And she's brought us some amazing characters since then -- Sunanda in Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Indu in Sonchiriya, Chandro in Saand Ki Aankh, Devika in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan are just some of her unforgettable onscreen portrayals.

And there's Badhaai Do and Mr Lele to look forward to.


Disha Patani

Disha's scorching pictures -- a far cry from her sweet debut as Priyanka Jha in M S Dhoni: The Untold Story -- rule Instagram.

She's even caught the Khan's eye and stars with Salman in two films, Bharat and Radhe.

In the pipeline are Ek Villain Returns and a dance number in rumoured boyfriend Tiger Shroff's Baaghi 3.

Meanwhile, bring on Instagram!

PS: Did you know she was part of Jackie Chan's Kung Fu Yoga, one of the highest grossing comedies in China?


Fatima Sana Shaikh

She was the cutie in Chachi 420 until she became the fierce Geeta Phogat in Dangal.

She's had mostly misses since then -- Thugs Of Hindostan, Suraj Pe Mangal Bhaari... But there was Ludo as well; besides, you can't keep a determined actress down.

Fatima's back with Ajeeb Dastaans on Netflix and you'll soon spot her with Amitabh Bachchan in Zamaanat: And Justice For All and in Thar, with Anil and Harshvardhan Kapoor.


Sanya Malhotra

Fatima's on-screen sister, Sanya Malhotra, has made some interesting moves after she debuted as Babita Phogat in Dangal.

There was Pataakha, Badhaai Ho, Photograph, Shakuntala Devi, Ludo and Pagglait.

One wonders what her next films, Meenakshi Sundareshwar and Love Hostel, will be like.


Parineeti Chopra

Fierce. Feisty. Determined.

With 10 years of experience under her belt, Parineeti is not someone you can take lightly.

Her credits include eclectic choices like Ishaqzaade (her second film, it won her a National Award -- Special Mention), Shuddh Desi Romance, Hasee Toh Phasee, Kill Dil and the recently released Girl On The Train and Saina. Of course, she does not forget to mix in fun fare like Golmaal Again.

Will Animal with Ranbir Kapoor and Bhuj: The Pride Of India take this alumnus from the Manchester Business School -- she is a triple honours degree holder in business, finance and economics according to Wikipedia -- to the top?

We are waiting with bated breath as, we are sure, is her cousin, a certain Priyanka Chopra Jonas.


Yami Gautam

Pretty Yami burst into our consciousness spectacularly with Vicky Donor.

Badlapur, Sanam Re, Kaabil, Uri and Bala have marked milestones in her journey as an actor.

She's looking forward to Dasvi and Bhoot Police.


Nushrratt Bharuccha

LSD. Pyaar Ka Punchnama; the first and the second. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety. Dream Girl. Chhalaang. Ajeeb Dastaans.

Interesting films that included an interesting young actress. If even she has chosen a rather unusual spelling for her name: Nushrratt Bharuccha.

Among her forthcoming films is the gigantic Ram Setu with Akshay Kumar.


Kriti Sanon

Kriti is fast becoming the actress to reckon with, thanks to beautiful performances in films like Mimi and Bareilly Ki Barfi.

No wonder, she has been signed on for big ticket projects with stars like Varun Dhawan (Bhediya), Akshay Kumar (Bachchan Pandey), Prabhas (Adipurush) and Tiger Shroff (Ganpat).


Kiara Advani

After a quiet start in MS Dhoni: The Untold Story (where she had a small role), a flop called Machine and another cameo in Kalank, Kiara hit the big league with the blockbuster Kabir Singh.

There has been no looking back since.

She's got Shershaah coming up, along with Jug Jug Jeeyo, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Mr Lele.


Who do you think will be Bollywood's Next Superstar?

Vote, and decide!
