  • 'Jannat 2'
    Director Kunal Deshmukh's thriller "Jannat 2" is a sequel to "Jannat" (2008). Model-turned-actress Esha Gupta, who won the Miss India International (2007), will make her Bollywood debut with this movie. The film is expected to be released May 4.Reuters

Bollywood's "Bodyguard" boy, Salman Khan, who has three consecutive box office hits, with "Dabangg"(2010), "Bodyguard" (2011) and "Ready" (2011), is reportedly and unanimously the leading male actor in the industry, according to the results of an online poll, conducted by "Top 10 Bollywood".

Aamir Khan is in second place, while Shah Rukh Khan, Ranbir Kapoor and Imran Khan round out the top five.

Hrithik Roshan could only manage sixth position, hampered by the failure of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed "Guzaarish" (2010). However, he fared better than either Ajay Devgn or Saif Ali Khan who, with two flops apiece, managed seventh and eighth positions, respectively. Farhan Akhtar and Emraan Hashmi are in ninth and tenth positions.
