Onam, the ten day harvest festival, is here and will be celebrated with great zest by Keralites across the country and the globe. On the occasion, we pick 10 Mallus with whom we'd love to have a sumptuous Onam sadhya with.

The voluptuous Balan babe is our top pick to celebrate Onam with this year. After her explosive portrayal of Silk Smitha in 'The Dirty Picture', Vidya followed it up with another riveting performance in 'Kahaani' this year. In a male dominated industry, Vidya is one the few actresses who can throw her weight around. We wish Vidya luck and Onam ashamsagal (Happy Onam in Malayalam)!
Defence minister AK Antony, known for his simple lifestyle and clean ways, is a rare politician we respect in these days of netas with tainted background. Antony's dignity has always been intact, unlike several of his counterparts and we'd be honoured to celebrate the festival with one of the last honest politicians still standing.
Since we're hanging on to his every word on Twitter, we'd love to celebrate Onam with Shashi Tharoor as well. The former external affairs minister is an online sensation with more than million followers on the microblogging site and Onam at his home, with his lovely wife Sunanda Pushkar, would be a treat you wouldn't want to miss.
Sound engineer Resul Pookutty is one humble man who made his state and country proud with an Academy award win for 'Slumdog Millionaire'. It would be a musical Onam to remember, if he sat down to celebrate the festival with us.
Arundhati Roy sure loves Kerala, and this is apparent in her Booker prize-winning novel 'The God of Small Things'. We think that Ms Roy is in dire need of a cheerful break from all her angry ranting. A delicious bowl of Payasam (kheer) should do the trick!
The famous Bollywood playback singer KK made us his fans with songs like 'Pal' and 'Tadap Tadap Ke', and this Onam, we'd like to see him serenade us with Onappaattus (traditional festival songs), and that's hardly asking much from this talented crooner.

Even though John Abraham's not entirely Malayali (his father hails from Kerala, while his mother is Parsi), who wouldn't want to have a guest like him over? Even though he had a messy break up last year, John's currently riding a wave of success after his production house's debut offering 'Vicky Donor' scored big at the box office. He's also found love in banker Priya, and life seems to be rather rosy for him at the moment

This sultry actress is every guy's dream. Asin, who's already the darling of Kollywood, is also one of Bollywood's most successful actresses, having starred in not one, not two, but four 100-crore movies! We would travel all the way down south or just about anywhere to meet this beauty.
Beloved superstar Mammootty would make our Onam an affair to remember. The actor's popularity rivals the likes of Rajinikanth in Tamil cinema and Amitabh Bachchan in Bollywood.

And if we've got Mammootty on this list, it would be a crime to leave out Mohanlal who even has a Thiru Onam release 'Run Baby Run'. And while we're wishing, what better Onam would it be if we could have both superstars sitting down to a meal at our table, together?
