Third on the list was Rajkumar Hirani, the director of ‘3 Idiots’, followed by A R Rahman (who picked up two Oscars for ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ in the course of 2009). On the number five spot was Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions followed by Yashraj Films and Aamir Khan Productions.
Kareena Kapoor was number eight on the list , next came Hrithik Roshan, followed by Katrina Kaif on the number 10 spot.
