Top 5 Bollywood Actresses (2000s)
Indian movies, for the most part, are all the same. Story usually involves a character dealing with a conflict, throw in a love interest and a few extravagant dance numbers and you have yourself a Bollywood film. What differentiates these films from one another are the Actors and Actresses that play said character and love interest. This list will list the Top 5 Bollywood actresses from the year 2000 and onward. The actresses on this list were chosen by comparing the quality of the film roles, quality of personality, and other qualities...not just looks. So without further ado, let us begin with…
5. Sonakshi Sinha
Sonakshi Sinha is the freshest actress on this list. She made her acting debut in 2010 with the film Dabangg, which also stared Salman Khan (who is number 1 on our top 5 actors list). Ever since, she has appeared on many other blockbusters, like Rowdy Rathore, Holiday, and of course Dabangg 2. Aside from acting, Ms. Sinha is also heavily involved in the fashion industry and has appeared on the cover of Maxim Magazine.
4. Katrina Kaif
Katrina Kaif is considered to be one of the most attractive females in the world. So it is no surprise that this fine female began modeling long before acting. During her modeling career, Ms. Kaif worked on her Hindi skills. Her good looks and improved hindi allowed her to land rolls in blockbusters like Partner, Welcome, and Race. These films were commercial successes, but really didn’t showcase Ms. Kaif’s acting skills. It wasn’t until recent films, like New York, Rajneeti, and Jab Tak Hai Jan, did Ms. Kaif’s acting skills really shine.
3. Kareena Kapoor
Kareena Kapoor is the only actress that my and father and I both like. This is because she’s been in the game for a long time (when talking about actresses). That, and the fact that she is extremely good looking. But in all seriousness, Kareena Kapoor is an awesome actress. She can play downright serious roles, like those in Refugee, Kurbaan, and Talaash. But she can also play comedic roles, like those in Golmaal, Kambakkht Ishq, and Bodyguard. “Bebo” (her nickname) is one of the Bollywood greatests actresses. That is a fact.
2. Priyanka Chopra
Ms. Chopra. The most flexible actress on this list. She is an actor, a model, a pageant star, and a singer. She is what little girls dream of being. Just straight up awesome. Ms. Chopra made her acting debut in the early 2000s, with films like Kismat, Aitraaz, and Blackmail. These films were all so-so. She really made a splash with the film Fashion (which happens to be one of my personal favorites). This really got her in the eye of the big name directors. After Fashion, Ms. Chopra stared in many commercial successes, like Dostana, Agneepath, and Barfi!.
1. Deepika Padukone
Deepika is number one on this list for a few reasons. First, she is great actress, just watch Race 2, Ram Leela, or Arakshan and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Second, she is downright gorgeous. And third and most important, she is a model human being. She isn’t scandalous and drama filled like most actresses. She does her own thing, which is just awesome. She is an inspiration for all.
