1. Aamir Khan
Away for four years, the country jeered as Aamir returned to the screen with his mega-hyped turkey, Mangal Pandey.
2006 gave us Aamir with the awesomely cult Rang De Basanti, winning over critics and college campuses: inciting dissent while making bushels of cash. His Fanaa might not have won high praise, but made even more money.
So far, it's truly been The Year Of Aamir.
