Let's start with who's Dabboo Ratnani? Dabboo is a Celebrity and Fashion Photographer. Every year the top hotties of Bollywood get together with Dabboo to allow him and his camera to capture their best (read hottest) shots, that then feature in his calendar for the new year. This year, he comes out with his 15th calendar, featuring the handsome hunks like Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir Kapoor, Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Arjun Rampal, Akshay Kumar, Varun Dhawan, Sidharth Malhotra and the gorgeous gals like Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Aishwarya Rai, Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Pareeniti Chopra, Bipasha Basu, Alia and Kajol. We didn't want to publish the copyrighted Dabboo Ratnani's pictures, so we bring to you, those tweeted by various famous people in the industry (and some not).

And judging by the teaser video (above) that the ace photographer has released early January, it looks like the top shots of the Hindi film industry not only look forward to and enjoy being a part of this annual 'ritual', they do also take immense pride and feel flattered in being invited to participate in it. In fact, the feeling that you get is this- for the new invitees, it's an indicator of having made it in the 'hot' list, while for the veterans, it provides a sense of 'I still got it'. As Vidya Balan, who has been in the industry for around a decade, puts it, being part of this "makes me feel that the year will go well." The King Khan, who has made it in 13 of the 15 editions, having missed the only two on females only, jokes that he hopes to qualify for those too some day :).

Well, although we can't deny that the chosen dozen or so, who made it into the calendar this year, 2014, do look their absolute hottest best, and congratulations to them for this feather in the cap too, we know they work hard to get and to stay at this height of success and so certainly deserve it. And we also know that if tomorrow, they don't get this 'Hot' stamp of approval, their achievement in no way diminishes.
