What a year. It rained sequels and remakes. New faces hit the spotlight, older ones returned to thrill. Actors changed face and figure. Infidelity became a hot topic. Mahatma Gandhi and Bhagat Singh shared their ideology, Bollywood ishtyle.
Mega stars, mega bucks: 06 had it all. rediff.com takes a look at who rocked at what in this outstanding year.
Enter the Dhoomer
The actor with the best introduction scenes in 2006
Hrithik Roshan, Krrish and Dhoom 2
Krrish gave Bollywood a superhero; Dhoom 2 made a star mega.
Be it saviour or troublemaker, Hrithik Roshan was the man. His undeniable screen presence, sweltering sexuality and vulnerable expressions made him a perfect candidate for attractive long shots and lingering close-ups.
It is hardly surprising then that the star gets the best introduction scenes. You just cannot ignore those rippling muscles as he runs with all his might in Krrish. Or jumps off a parachute onto a running train in Namibia for his larger-than-life entry for Dhoom 2.
