Every year we witness and welcome a new league of superwomen with untold euphoria. Here’s continuing our blog of counting down the best actresses of the past year.
Deepika Padukone as Angelina “Angie” in Finding Fanny
Deepika Padukone’s tranquil charm lights up every frame as energetically as the sun and brings perfect blend of sombreness to her part.
Huma Qureshi as Muniya in Dedh Ishqiya
Overtaking the queen of Bollywood, Huma reigns supreme as the slightly more adventurous risk taker of the scheming duo in Dedh Ishqiya.
Parineeti Chopra as Dr. Meeta Solanki in Hansee Toh Phansee
Playing an eccentric and outstanding young scientist, Parineeti sinks her teeth into this misconceived odd fish without a trace of reticence or overplaying.
Alia Bhatt as Veera Tripathi in Highway
If Student of the Year launched her as star, Highway skyrockets her as an actress. Alia as Veera eagerly accomplishes every challenge, rising above the matter with a livid belief in her unshakable convictions.
Kangna Ranaut as Rani Mehra in Queen
Kangna Ranaut is arrestingly spectacular. The actress has always upped the ante with the unfamiliar but in Queen, she is guileless, believable and charming.
Rani Mukheji as Shivani Shivaji Roy in Mardaani
Towering like Liam Neeson in practically most scenes from start to finish, the actress radiates unfathomable ruggedness and distressing intensity.
Patralekha as Rakhee in Citylights
Debutante Patralekha is a goldmine of talent. Her subtle demeanour is a camouflage for the monster she hides within herself with such brooding expressions and calm moments.
Tabu as Ghazala Meer in Haider
Tabu’s Ghazala steals much of the film and lurks in one’s memory long after the film is over. The veteran actress portrays a version of Gertrude who can be both malicious as well as wretchedly powerless.
