No more hero centric movies required to entertain audience and give something worth the ticket prices. Sonam Kapoor’s acting proved this fact yet again this year. Here is a tribute to all talented actresses in Bollywood.
1. Sonam Kapoor- Neerja (2016)
Sonam Kapoor’s “Neerja” was an incredible tribute to India’s brave and youngest Ashoka Chakra winner flight attendant Neerja Bhanot. Her acting was appreciated by many actors and directors in the industry including Aamir, Hrithik and many more. Sonam’s efforts were so remarkable that we cannot visualize a better Neerja for this role ever.
2. Nimrat Kaur- Airlift (2016)
Airlift isn’t more about Akshay’s character and less about Nimrat, but yes her character did have an impact to the story. Her fine and mature acting was absolutely perfect and once again proved her skills after Lunch box. She does deserve a movie which will revolve around her role.
3. Deepika Padukone- Piku (2015)
People criticized Deepika for doing this unusual movie, but Deepika who always took decisions following her heart and instincts didn’t give up. She won many awards for owning Piku’s character and proved everyone wrong.
4. Alia- Highway (2014)
Alia was a newbie in the industry during this project which is very intense and complicated. With very less experience she gave her best and was indeed a right choice for the character.
5. Priyanka- Mary Kom (2014)
Well, there’s no way that Priyanka can ever screw up any character given to her. She has proved herself way before and still she left no stones unturned to play the Mary Kom who made India proud so many times.
6. Kalki Koechlin- Margarita with a Straw (2014)
This is a must watch and Kalki definitely deserves to be in this list. Although the movie didn’t get much noticed, we cannot ignore her performance.
7. Kangana- Queen (2013)
Kangana became a star in 2013 and got many good offers after queen. Her acting was appreciated by both critics and audiences. We got to see a completely different Kangana in a deglamorized role in Queen.
8. Vidya Balan- Kahaani (2011)
Vidya Balan became a star after “Dirty Picture”, but that didn’t stop giving fine performances after this and in fact it was her year. Kahaani was another awesome script she got and once again proved that women centric movies can do good business.
9. Kareena Kapoor- Chameli (2003)
This was a time where not much people appreciated movie which revolved around story of woman and that too a prostitute. But that doesn’t change the fact that she did the role effortlessly and can be counted as one of her best performances.
10. Tabu- Chandni Bar (2001)
Tabu as we all know is one of the best actress we have since the 90’s and “Chandni Bar” had so many scenes which gave us goosebumps. Her acting as a lost girl in a new city to a strong woman raising two kids in a evil world was incredible.
