She's churning out hits by the bucketload -- Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Raajneeti, De Dana Dan and Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani were all successes of varying degree -- and even a universally panned film like Tees Maar Khan did wonders for Katrina as she set the screen ablaze with her Sheila routine.
She's apparently single now, and unencumbered by Salman Khan, her sex appeal seems to be going right through the roof. Just ask the mangoes she sells so, so well.
She's definitely the actress of the year with films after films coming with the Khans of Bollywood. All eyes rest on her and Salman Khan's Bodyguard. After which she will be seen with Shahrukh Khan in Raone. She's the girl to watch out for this year.
Again she will be seen with beau Saif Ali Khan in Agent Vinod.
Her little charms, subtle beauty and innocence all adds to her grace and glamour.Gud Luck!
Now, she stands as an impressive actress of better ability than most of her contemporaries.
While her last few films might have failed -- 7 Khoon Maaf, Anjaana Anjaani, Pyaar Impossible and What's Your Rashee were all spectacular flops --
Chopra herself has already commandeered enough of a foothold in the industry to be a top heroine, despite the lack of commercial success.
She's a star. It's like Aishwarya Rai a few years ago.
She started with a bang opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Yash Raj Films keeps claiming that her Badmaash Company made money, and last year's Band Bajaa Baraat deservedly catapulted her into the A-list.
Now she gets applause for even a Patiala House. Anushka's on the upswing, and producers around the country are only too glad to hitch their wagons onto her.
Her last hit came with Jodha Akbar in 2008, following which she's stumbled abroad with The Pink Panther 2, and at home with Raavan, Action Replayy and Guzaarish, three massively hyped and tremendously underperforming films.
Rajnikanth-starrer Robot worked, but she was flayed for her weak performance in the film and, anyway, a Rajni film is just about the man.
Currently pregnant, Ash has opted out of Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine, and since we aren't likely to see her bounce back on screen immediately after, she's going to have to step back and enjoy familial pleasures while the other girls make a bid for her status on the big screen.
