1. - Rani Mukherj, Rab Ne Banja Di Jodi, India, 2008. Sonam, niece of film-maker Boney Kapoor and his superstar wife, Sridevi, did well in her screen-test. Just not well enough.
2. - Anushka Sharma, Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (US: A Match Made By God), India, 2008. The daughter of Bollywood icon Anil Kapoor (niece of director Boney Kapoor and actor Sanjay Kapoor) tested but lost to Anusha as the broken hearted wife of Shah Rukh Khan.
3. - Kangana Ranaut, Kites, 2009. Oh no, she said, to Gina and Las Vegas locations. “My image is too simple for such a steamy role.” So the next year, she won Aiusha, the Bollywood take on Jane Austen’s Emma.
