7. Saif Ali Khan

December 24, 2007

Gung-ho about playing a racecar driver, Siddharth Anand's disastrous Ta Ra Rum Pum showed that red overalls did not a racing superstar make.

Saif also got good notices with Vidhu Vinod Chopra's Eklavya, despite not being in the titular role.

Saif also began work on his next, Tashan -- with Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor and Anil Kapoor -- which looks promising, from the opening promos.
