Is there anything that he cannot do? A famous chat show host, a successful producer and actor. He is referred as the 'Unsuitable Boy' after launching his much-awaited autobiography.

He was applauded as a writer, but he isn't known to be someone who is monotonous with his work. When the year was just about to end, Karan Johar has managed to shock everyone by becoming an RJ.

His show 'Calling Karan' on Ishq 104.8 FM has now become a source of entertainment for all his friends. In the show he is heard to be giving relationship advice to his listeners and guiding them on the right path.

The bong-beauty Konkana Sen Sharma is a versatile actress who keeps no stone unturned while performing on-screen. But the star lacks charm when it comes to dancing. Everybody saw her moves in the film "Aaja Nachle", though she danced little, Sen went off-beat everytime.Reuters

An actress always known for her versatility and power packed performances in movies like Lipstick under my Burkha, Page 3, and Life in a Metro, she took her passion for cinema to another level by donning the director's hat with an unconventional movie- Death in the Gunj.

The movie received a lot of appreciation from the audience. Konkana was also applauded for her filmmaking skill and the movie went on to win many awards.

Anu Malik, the versatile musician who ruled the 90s era with his music and voice is still going strong in Bollywood. However, he seems to have taken on the role of RJ quite seriously.

After hosting BIG Radio Reel Countdown on 92.7 BIG FM, he is back on the radio station with a new show 'The 90's show with Anu Malik'. Looks like he loves to spread the charm of his voice and quirky anecdotes through different mediums and keep the audiences hooked.

The famous radio jockey has made a name for herself in the radio industry. She is every celebrity's favourite as they love her witty interviews.

She is all over the internet with her 'sonu song'. Last year, we saw her dancing in the famous show Jhalak Dikhla Ja. From a renowned RJ to dancing, her journey has been impressive.
