Priyanka Chopra's sexy cop routine in the item number Mumbai Ke Hero failed to avert the disaster Apoorva Lakhia's Zanjeer remake turned out to be.
On the bright side, Ms Exotic sure served as the perfect eye candy in her body hugging play on a cop uniform.

Esha Gupta, Chakravyuh
The gorgeous Esha Gupta donned the uniform as Rhea Menon in Prakash Jha's Chakravyuh, an IPS officer who is married to the film's protagonist -- Arjun Rampal's Adil Khan.
The de-glam look came as a refreshing change.

Neetu Kapoor, Besharam
Neetu Kapoor, who delivered a stellar performance as a harrowed middle class homemaker in Do Dooni Char, reunites with husband Rishi in Abhinav Kashyap's Besharam, costarring son Ranbir.

Sushmita Sen, Samay
Inspired from Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman starrer Se7en, Robby Grewal-directed 2003 action film Samay: When Time Strikes got Sushmita Sen acclaim as tough cop Malvika Chauhan.

Madhuri Dixit, Khalnayak
As the lovelorn Ganga, Madhuri Dixit makes her part entertaining and impressively changes gears when she ventures out to salvage her beau's dignity.

Neetu Chandra, One Two Three
As inspector Mayawati Chautala, Neetu Chandra stood out in an ensemble comedy of errors called One Two Three, directed by Ashwni Dhir.
The film was inspired from Hollywood film Blame It On The Bellboy.

Shamita Shetty, Cash
Anubhav Sinha's ill-fated ensemble thriller Cash featured Shamita Shetty in the role of undercover spy Shanaya, who is also the protagonist's (played by Ajay Devgn) girlfriend.
Shetty also played a cop in Zeher opposite Emraan Hashmi.

Bipasha Basu, Gunaah
Bipasha Basu's tough cop Prabha in Gunaah was quite a departure from the overly glamorous roles she figured in in the early days of her career.
Unfortunately, the film didn't work at the box office.

Dimple Kapadia, Zakhmi Aurat
In the dramatically-named revenge saga Zakhmi Aurat, Dimple Kapadia plays a cop out to punish a group of rapists.
