2008 is gone forever and 2009 has crept in with many promising films in store. Hope 2009 fights the global recession raining gold at the box-office. But stars who really need to prove themselves this year before it's too late are:-
Preity Zinta- Preity had done two films last year Heroes and The Last Lear where in spite of being noticed she dint seem to make any buzz in Bollywood. Her viewers want to see her original self in roles that she has done in the past in films like Kal Ho Na Ho and Salaam Namaste but unfortunately this year she has only been seen more on the cricket fields than on the silver screen. All her wellwishers wish her Mohali team wins the IPL and her forthcoming film Har Pal does wonders in the BO and she manages to get offers from Dharma and Yash Raj productions.
Shahid Kapoor- Has lots in store this year to prove himself as last year where his only hit was Jab We Met which was completely dominated by Kareena and she stole all the limelight. His film with Vidya Balan, Kismat Konnection too dint make in waves in the BO maybe because the viewers did not approve their pair. His love life was also in a mess in spite of being in news for seeing Sania Mirza and Vidya Balan. Nothing seemed to work for him. This year he has YRF's Cricket with Rani Mukerji, Ken Ghosh's musical extravaganza Yahoo with Jiah Khan and Vishal Bhardwaj's Kaminay with Priyanka Chopra. So that means lots to prove himself. In the personal front too he is said to be dating some Mubina Rattonsey, so we all hope that even in that front things work out well for him.
Zayed Khan- the only good thing that happened to this star last year was that he became a father. His much hyped films Mission Istanbul and Yuvvraaj were a major disaster and were a complete hint that this star if not anything else definitely needs to attend some acting classes.
This year he will be seen in the film Blue where his scuba diving skills and his physique will make the people forget his no acting ability. The other films which he has to hold on to are dad Sanjay Khan's The Legend of Lord Rama and Apoorva Lakhia's.
Fardeen Khan-has not had a single release last year and he just seems to have disappeared somewhere. The actor was last seen in Ram Gopal's disaster, Darling. He will be seen in the film Dulha mil Gaya in 2009. He also has Sanjay Gupta's much hyped film Acid Factory in his sleeve .As this film sounds pretty promising hope Fardeen is able to come back with a bang. Apart from this he will also be seen in Abbas Mustan's multi-starrer comic caper Life Partner.
Vivek Oberoi-Over confidence and arrogance are the two words which have become the reason for the failure of this actor even though he can act well. His character of Maya Dola's in Shoot out in Lokhandwala was highly appreciated and he was remembered for it but his film, Mission Istanbul was a dud in the BO. His upcoming films like. a Tips action film called Prince of Thieves, Dharma Productions' film on terrorism alongside Saif and Kareena where he plays a terrorist and a role in Prakash Jha's multi-starrer political thriller Rajneeti sound promising and the characters he s playing seem to have lots of potential so we hope these help him in proving his worth.
Salman Khan - Last but not the least we all hope that 2009 brings in lots of luck for Sallu bhai. His 2008 was really bad where his much hyped film Yuvvraaj was unable to create magic in the box office. This year he has Veer where Salman can once again prove himself and come back in the race.
