10. Chitrangda Singh
Chitrangda gave a fantastic performance in Sudhir Mishra's Hazaaron Khwaishen Aisi and followed it up with Ruchi Narain's Kal.
Sadly, this immensely talented actress chose family life -- she is married to golfer Jyoti Randhawa -- over a showbiz career, and did not even put in an appearance at the premiere of Kal.
Directors Farhan Akhtar, Ketan Mehta, Madhur Bhandarkar and Sudhir Mishra paid tribute to the 'Smita Patil of the new generation', by asking her to return to films. So far in vain.
