4. Sonakshi Sinha
Sonakshi Sinha, who was beginning to bore us with her screens outings as a village belle, took us by suprise with a mature performance in 'Lootera'. Film critic Subhash K Jha said: "Playing the ailing, dying Pakhi in 'Lootera', she comes to a formidable level of histrionic nirvana not obtainable to any of her contemporaries. Sonakshi penetrates her character's bleeding loneliness with fearless integrity."
