|'Tanu Weds Manu' - 2011|
If 2010 was the year of Sonakshi's "Tappar se dar nahin lagta saab", then this year's catchiest line so far has got to be "Oye hoye pappi jee" in 'Tanu Weds Manu' - spoken by the utterly talented diva Kangana Ranaut.
Check it out for yourself here:

Born in 1987 in North India she arrived in Mumbai in 2004 at only 17 to pursue a career in showbiz. She caught the eye of Anurag Basu in a cafe and the rest is history. Her star quality shone through in her first film and later swept all the Best Newcomer trophies at the next award season. She followed this up in 2007 with the another great performance in Basu's 'Life In A Metro' - also starring Konkona Sen and Shilpa Shetty. The movie which I saw very recently was very impressive. Her role was minor but she did her part well and stood out in the ensemble-cast. Not only was the film a hit, but it was applauded by critics alike, and further yet it bagged Kangana another award: Stardust Breakthough Performance'.

It might've been the hype around this girl at the time or not, but her next release became the biggest hit of the year so far in 2009: 'Raaz 2'. Her next release 'Vaada Raha' opposite Bobby Deol was a low-key affair and sunk without a trace, but not to worry as she was sure to fire right back.

Her saviour of the year came in the form of 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai'. Set to the backdrop of the 1970's she played the role of Rehaana - a moviestar in love with a gangster played by Ajay Devgan. The film became a shash hit and earned Kangana a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the Zee Cine Awards. Songs from the film also helped it's success.

What does the future hold? Well our diva said she would love to work with Aamir Khan - I hope he signs her up for something as I think they would make a smashing pair on screen. Not to worry though as she has got quite a handful of films in her kitty at the moment. There is Rajkumar Santoshi's 'Power'; Tanvir Khan's 'One And Only'; Priyadarshan's 'Tezz'; and Kushan Nandy's 'Actor' all in the pipeline. In the near future her next releases are 'Game' (April 1st); 'Double Dhamaal' (June 10th); and David Dhawan's 'Rascals' (July).
