3. Abhishek Bachchan
Like his dad, Abhishek took his time to be successful. And like his pa, Abhi may be a certified superstar.
The bad times seem to be behind him as he churned out hit after hit this year in Bunty Aur Babli, Sarkar and Dus.
Besides, he is working with all the right people -- Yash Chopra's Dhoom 2 and Fanaah, mentor J P Dutta's Umrao Jaan and Karan Johar's Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna.
