Back-to-back hits, courtesy Paa and Ishqiya have catapulted Vidya Balan in the big league. She's one of those rare Bollywood beauties who's achieved this without succumbing to the swimsuit fad.

Hotness quotient: An actress of grit and substance, Vidya Balan is no bore, mind you. She sports an earthy brand of sensuality, which lights the screen up with her glowing eyes, melting smile and enticing voice.

Style mantra: Derided by one and all for her gaudy picks initially, Ms Balan has found her safety net in designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee's exquisite range of ethnic saris.
