They came, they charmed, and they conquered the Box Office with their scintillating performances. These superstars broke many hearts when they decided to quit the silver screen for various reasons. However, the divas made their much anticipated comeback in 2012 after years of hiatus.

Sridevi Kapoor, our first candidate on the list, adorned the silver screen with her power-packed performance after 15 long years with director Gauri Shinde's English Vinglish.  She plays the role of a housewife, Shashi Godbole in this comedy-drama movie. It showcases the journey of Shashi, a simple housewife who runs a small business making ladoos to going to New York and enrolling herself in an English learning course to please her husband and her family.  Not only has the film received universal critical acclaim, the cerebral crowd loved it and declared the movie a must watch. Sridevi successfully won the hearts of fans all over the world as English Vinglish was declared a Hit. Once again, she reminded everyone of why she was one of the most successful actresses of her time.

Next on the list is Juhi Chawla, who plays one of the leads in the recently released Son of Sardaar. This movie marks her comeback in mainstream commercial cinema after 2 years. She was last seen in Luck by Chance in 2009. Juhi plays a cute and funny character named Pammi, who was supposed to get married to Billu, the character played by Sanjay Dutt. But due to some reasons the marriage is put on a halt. Even though Son of Sardaar opened with mixed reviews from the critics, it managed to do excellent business at the Box Office and Juhi's performance was classified as outstanding.

Lastly Lolo, as she is fondly called by many, also made a comeback this year with Vikram Bhatt's Dangerous Ishhq which was released on May 11, 2012. After a gap of 6 years since her last release Mere Jeevan Saathi in 2006, Karisma Kapur played the role of a supermodel Sanjana who undergoes past life regression after she starts remembering her past lives. Even though the film was a complete disaster at the Box Office, the critics praised Karishma for her earnest performance.

Now that they're officially back to Bollywood, we at BollyCurry hope to continue seeing their fantastic work more often. Any other actress you would like to see make a comeback to Bollywood?
