On that note, here's a look at rediff.com's much-awaited list of Bollywood's Ten Best Actors of 2008:
10. Imran Khan
There's a terrible deficiency of talented young faces in the film industry. And so Imran Khan's friendly-as-a-Care Bear turn, as Jai Singh Rathore aka Rats, found a smitten admirer in viewers of all ages.
Imran's unassuming, breezy aura and tangible niceness coupled up with an emotionally contained and confident performance contributed immensely to Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na's stable, sweet appeal. Although the same cannot be said about his premature-action-hero follow-up in Kidnap, Imran is, without doubt, a biggie-in-the-making.
