Anushka, Rani, Kareena: BEST films of Bollywood's top actresses

Here's looking at the finest films of these ladies.

Looks, luxury, love, these girls have it all.

They’re the most sought-after leading ladies in the business.

In Bollywood’s fiercely competitive rat race, names and rankings keep changing but a career-best performance is what an actress can hold on to forever.

And so here’s looking at the top 10 heroines today and their best work so far.

Anushka Sharma, Band Baaja Baaraat

Few actresses can wear vulnerability as convincingly as Anushka Sharma in front of the camera.

And if that’s what made us root for the lovely Taani Partner of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, it’s what endears to her motivated yet romantic Shruti Kakkar in Band Baaja Baaraat.

Kareena Kapoor, Jab We Met

With her first film itself, Kareena Kapoor lived up to her surname in style.

Having said that, Bebo’s bubbling dynamism is at its best under perceptive supervision.

Just the reason why her flawless blend of radiance and fizz as Geet Dhillon in Imtiaz Ali’s Jab We Met is her *most* satisfying work up till now.

Priyanka Chopra, Barfi!

Her rather orthodox approach to good girl gone astray in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Fashion fetched her a prestigious National Award honour.

But it’s Priyanka Chopra’s complete lack of inhibition and touching naiveté as the childlike Jhilmil in Anurag Basu’s Barfi!, which makes both her performance and the film -- precious.

Kangna Ranaut, Queen

Kangna Ranaut came, saw and conquered with Gangster, Woh Lamhe and Life... In A Metro.

Soon though, the actress appeared to fade way under the burden of forgettable flops until Tanu Weds Manu hurled her back into reckoning.

Of course, nothing could prepare us for the magic she would weave as the delightfully inspiring lead of Queen who shuns every stereotypical convention on screen and off it to emerge triumphant on screen and off it.

Deepika Padukone , Chennai Express

Nothing more effective than a loosened-up actor on screen and the Om Shanti Om actress took her own sweet time to realise that.

And it was with, of all the films, Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express, where Deepika Padukone demonstrated she could be genuinely funny at all things bokwaas.

Vidya Balan, Kahaani

Milan Luthria’s The Dirty Picture is Vidya Balan’s most courageous and bold work.

But Sujoy Ghosh’s Kahaani is her best.

In the latter, she doesn’t rely on sex or sensation but rock solid artistry in a plot built around Balan and her faux pregnancy, conveying the restiveness and resolve of a wife looking for her missing husband.

Katrina Kaif, Namastey London

Seven years since the harmless confection, Namastey London came out but the bratty/sensitive London-bred desi Jazz remains Katrina Kaif’s most likeable performance so far.

There’s no doubting her hard work and popularity but Kats is yet to dazzle us with a performance that flaunts more than her looks, dance or kapow skills.

Parineeti Chopra, Hasee Toh Phasee

Winsome from the word go; it was only a matter of time before Parineeti Chopra climbed the popularity charts.

Unaffected and spontaneous, Parineeti slips into the skin of a character with the ease of a veteran and freshness of a debutant creating lasting impressions and characters like her madcap Meeta in Hasee Toh Phasee.

Sonakshi Sinha, Lootera

Watching a doe-eyed Sonakshi Sinha unravel in Lootera is both heart warming and breaking.

It’s frustrating to watch a perfectly talented actress trapped in bimbette-next-door roles in one hare-brained flick after another when she could be the best among her peers.

Alia Bhatt, Highway

Alia Bhatt is doing what Sonakshi Sinha isn’t.

She’s expanding her resume by doing roles of range that she can feel decent about later in the day.

The degree of maturity and intuition the 21-year-old imparts to her complex Veera in a tricky premise like Highway is nothing short of awe-inspiring.
