Top 5 Bollywood actresses who entertained “beyond the glamour”
Jan 8, 2018
In 2017, Bollywood actresses proved that
they can carry a film solely on their shoulders and they are constantly
breaking the taboo about them just being eye candies. Previous year gave cinephiles
more such films which were solid proof of this fact. Secret Superstar, Tumhari
Sulu and Phillauri are just to name a few. The leading ladies of these films
made a difference and offered the society better concept than just
entertainment. In the year when Bollywood failed to deliver impressive content,
the work of these ladies was a breath of fresh air. As 2018 begins, we list the
female actors who put up a great show with their ace acting skills in 2017 and
succeeded in binding the audiences to the screen for good 120 minutes or more.
Our Sharma Ji was making news all over the
internet last year. As Anushka Sharma aka Shashi was feeding on love advice to
a confused Kanan in Phillauri, the
audience fell in love with her quirky character. The actress made the screen
glittery quite literally every time she arrived on the screen and her fans were
left charmed and couldn`t take their eyes off her yet again. The versatile diva
emerged as the cutest ghost of Bollywood. Her 3D silhouette in the movie was
done with great detailing!
We could believe in the story of a teenager
Vadodara-based Insiya in Secret
Superstar by the flawless acting of Zaira Wasim! Her portrayal of an
ordinary role in an extraordinary manner was a solid proof of age and
experience being some of the least parameters to judge an actor. Like Dangal,
with Secret Superstar, she once again proved that she has acting talent is on
par with Bollywood’s top celebrities.
It is such a treat to the eyes to see a
15-year-old look and feel like a regular teen, dealing with first crushes and
strumming a guitar properly, and not a painted doll.
The role of Vidya Balan’s character
Sulochana as a dutiful, shy perfect wife yet an intelligent woman came as a
mirror to the women in real life in the movie Tumhari Sulu. Vidya, out of duty explored the nuances of a
homemaker’s life and presented it in front of the audiences at a radio station
with her ace acting skills. It was her infectious confidence of carrying
herself that gave the movie a simplistic touch which made it stand apart from
other Bollywood flicks.
She broke all the stereotypes around a
woman’s weight in her debut Dum Laga Ke
Haisha and then she amazed all with her choices of films as the protagonist
next in Toilet Ek Prem Katha, a
social drama. Bhumi owned the role of Jaya entirely and that was independent of
Akshay`s character. Her de-glam, girl next door look touched the hearts of the
audience and the beauty made it loud and clear that she can fit into any
character given to her. Her second release of previous year Shubh Mangal Saavdhan had the concept
of breaking a taboo pretty much proved the point further.
The widely famous actress for her Malayalam hits, Parvathy made her Bollywood debut with Irrfan Khan Starrer Qarib Qarib Single and proved her acting mettle yet again. She emerged as someone who can prove herself own among the star-studded industry. She essayed the role of a 35-year-old widow Jaya in the movie who gives herself another chance and meets Irrfan aka free-spirited Yogi during her quest for love. Her role in the Tanuja Chandra film Take off fetched her positive reviews from across the country. Also, she joined the league of actors who preferred going de-glam in 2017 and sported a no-makeup look onscreen.
