Katrina Kaif is still riding her success wave. With her film Raajneeti being declared a hit, she has made it to the list of actresses who have made it to the top in this year so far.

This hit comes right after she scored in last year's big hit Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani, where she starred opposite Ranbir Kapoor.

Katrina has some big releases coming up like Farah Khan's Tees Maar Khan opposite Akshay Kumar and Zoya Akhtar's Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara, which also stars Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, Abhay Deol and Kalki Koechlin.

It's no surprise then that she's every adman's favourite with her list of endorsements including Slice, Nakshatra, Pantene and Veet.

Trade analyst Vinod Mirani lists the other actresses who have made it to the top, this year.

Deepika Padukone

Her first 2010 release, Karthik Calling Karthik may not have done well. But Deepika got a hit in Sajid Khan's multi-starrer Housefull, where she brought good luck to costar Akshay Kumar's reel character.

She has a string of interesting movies coming up, like Pradeep Sarkar's Lafangey Parindey opposite Neil Nitin Mukesh, Kunal Kohli's Break Ke Baad opposite Imran Khan and Ashutosh Gowariker's Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey opposite Abhishek Bachchan.

She has also bagged quite a few endorsements like Sony Cybershot, Parachute, Fiama D Wills, Orbit, BSNL and Neutrogena.

My Name Is Khan may not have reached the superhit status Shah Rukh Khan is used to but it got its leading lady a spot on this list.

The actress will be seen next in We Are Family, a remake of Stepmom featuring Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal, and will lend her voice to hubby Ajay Devgn's film Toonpur Ka Superhero.

Kajol, who is expecting her second baby, is still signing endorsements like Knorr, Alpenliebe, Oil of Olay, Yakult and Whirlpool.

Vidya Balan is doling out noteworthy performances in films like Paa and Ishqiya, where she held her own against veterans like Amitabh Bachchan and Naseeruddin Shah.

The actress was spotted at Karan Johar's office recently, sparking rumours that she may soon be seen in a Dharma production.

Meanwhile, she's busy endorsing products like Marico Haircare, Big Bazaar, Airtel, Toshiba, Dabur Uveda, and Good Knight.

Konkona had two releases this year out of which Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge fared well at the box office. Her other film Right Yaaa Wrong bombed.

The actress now awaits the release of her Bengali film Iti Mrinalini, directed by her mother Aparna Sen. Her other forthcoming releases are Vinay Shukla's Mirch and Rituparno Ghosh's Sunglass.

Konkona endorses only two products -- Horlicks and Nerolac Impressions -- but we won't be surprised to see her in more.
