As 2007 comes to an end, Shah Rukh Khan has emerged as the undisputed king of the box office and Kareena Kapoor as the actress Number 1.

Top actors:
Shah Rukh Khan: King Khan is the undisputed king of the box office with two super hits Chak De! India and Om Shanti Om, displaying star-power in every frame.

Akshay Kumar: Take a bow, Akshay. With four hits – Namastey London, Heyy Babyy, Bhool Bhulaiyaa and Welcome, the man is the new Midas of the box office.

Aamir Khan: With Taare Zameen Par, Aamir has proved he’s a man of integrity and puts his money where his mouth is.

Top actresses:
Kareena Kapoor: One rousing performance in Jab We Met, and she’s back at the top. Yash Raj Films’ Tashan is her next release and the buzz is she’s also a frontrunner for Karan Johar’s next with SRK.

Vidya Balan: Three solid hits – Guru, Heyy Babyy and Bhool Bhulaiyaa have suddenly made Vidya a force to reckon with.

Konkona Sen-Sharma: From Rani’s chirpy sibling in Laaga Chunari Mein Daag to Kunal Kapoor’s besotted Laila in Aaja Nachle, Konkona didn’t really deliver hits. But her solid performances put her among the formidable actresses.

Top directors:
Shimit Amin: He made hockey sexy. Amin has taken a long sabbatical after the triumph of Chak De! India. He returns in 2008 with a Yash Raj Film.

Imtiaz Ali: So what if Jab We Met came when the lead pair parted? Shahid Kapur and Kareena Kapoor had never showed great chemistry in any of the films they did as a real-life pair. Ali is flooded with offers. He has agreed to direct a film for produced by Saif Ali Khan.

Priyadarshan: He’s the only director in 2007 with delivered two hits, a minor Dhol and a major Bhool Bhulaiyya. Priyan sure has come a long way.

Pritam Chakraborty: The composer delivered chartbusters in Life… In A Metro, Bhool Bhulaiyaa and Jab We Met.

Vishal-Shekhar: Sajna ji vari-vari in Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd at the beginning of 2007 and Dard-e-disco in Om Shanti Om at end of the year rocked the charts.

Top newcomers:

Sonam Kapoor: She’s been compared with Waheeda Rehman and Rekha. Sonam is here to stay.

Ruslaan Mumtaz: Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar was a damp squib, but Ruslaan created a ripple in a quiet way. Watch out for him in his second film Tere Sang.

Deepika Padukone: Shah Rukh Khan’s dreamy girl in Om Shanti Om made a dream debut in a double role.
