This year, he proved that that Box Office clearly loves him with the way his second film 'Baaghi' performed at the box office . The movie did not just open massively and collect good numbers at the box office but also received a lot of love and appreciation for Tiger from all quarters.

After that, within a couple of months, his other film 'A flying Jatt' released, that gave him additional fan following among the kids because of his superhero avatar.

Also, The TRP of both his films' television premieres is among the top few this year.

Tiger who is such a unique actor, a film written for him cannot be done with anyone else. Even looking forward, Tiger has three back to back movies; 'Munna Michael' which is already in the making along with 'Student of the Year 2' and ' Baaghi 2'.

Tiger has definitely been a winner all the way!

-Sushant Singh Rajput

The year 2016 has been a big turning point for actor Sushant Singh Rajput with his superhit film, 'M.S. Dhoni - the Untold Story'.

His performance in this biopic is perhaps one of the most celebrated performances of this year as he has taken acting to another level. The actor with glaring potential has turned a new leaf with 'M.S. Dhoni - the Untold Story'.

There is no doubt about Dhoni's massive fan following but Sushant gave a stellar performance and made everyone believe he was Dhoni. That brought not just commercial success to the film but he also received immense critical acclaim for his portrayal, recognizing him as one of the best actors in the country.

He also received the Best Actor award at the first award ceremony of this season.

Sushant Singh Rajput, who is a complete outsider in the industry, has struggled his way through and reached where he has today.

The actor also has a very interesting line up going forward; Dinesh Vijan's next 'Raabta', Homi Adajania's 'Takadum', Sanjay Puran Singh's 'Chandamama Door Se' and Tarun Mansukhani's next.

-Jacqueline Fernandez

Jacqueline Fernandez has entertained the audiences through the year by delivering back to back hits.

The actress has surely secured the middle name of an entertainer with her golden run at the back office with consecutive hit movies.

All her three movies, after becoming huge hits at the theatres have gone on to woo the audiences with their TV premiers as well. As per the TRP ratings of the TV premier, all three movies, 'Housefull 3', 'A Flying Jatt' and 'Dishoom' have successfully secured positions in the top five movies premiered on television.

Apart from her many party anthems like Chittiyaan Kalaiyaan, Lat Lag Gayi, Sooraj Dooba Hai, Jumme Ki Raat, Party on my mind, this year as well the actress has kept her track record of delivering hit songs going this year as well with Pyaar Ki Maa Di from 'Housefull 3', Sau Tarah Ke from 'Dishoom' and Beat Pe Booty from 'A Flying Jatt'.

The self made actress has made a mark for herself in Bollywood, making her one of the most commercially viable actress's of B'town.
