After studying law I vectored towards journalism by accident and it's the only job I've done since. It's a job that has taken me on a private jet to Jaisalmer - where I wrote India's first feature on fractional ownership of business jets - to the badlands of west UP where India's sugar economy is inextricably now tied to politics. I'm a big fan of new business models and crafty entrepreneurs. Fortunately for me, there are plenty of those in Asia at the moment.
Sonakshi Sinha (Age 25)
It was her performance in Lootera that did the trick for her. Critics raved about her performance and the PETA-supporter bettered her ranking in this year’s list. With four movies scheduled in 2014, Sinha (Rank 25) looks like she’s here to stay.
Saina Nehwal (Age 23)
At just 23, Nehwal (Rank 36) makes it to the list for the second time. While her total earnings dropped to Rs 9.92 crore, she still made it to the list due to her strong fame rank. Nehwal plays for the Hyderabad Hotshots in the Indian Badminton League.
