At 20, she's attractive.

At 30, she's beautiful.

At 40, she's luminous.

At 50, she's golden.

Beauty at every age brings its own share of goodness. And Bollywood's breathtaking heroines experience these changes in equal measure.

With Sridevi celebrating her 50th birthday not too long ago, we look at some of our best-known stunners at that age.

Rekha

With her deep dark red lips and resplendent kanjeevarams and gold, age is a mere statistic for someone as innately glamorous as Rekha.

Bollywood's beloved Khubsoorat turned 50 in 2004, and looked gorgeous in her film Bachke Rehna Re Baba.

Hema Malini

Few can boast of ageing as elegantly as Bollywood's eternal Dream Girl.

Hema Malini continued to be a picture of perfection even when she turned 50 during the filming of Hey! Ram in 1998.

Poonam Dhillon

From the fresh-faced cutie who made her debut under the Yashraj Films banner to one of Bigg Boss Season 3's most chilled out contestants, we've seen Poonam Dhillon practically grow in front of the camera.

The star of Noorie, Naam and Sohni Mahiwal turned a fabulous 50 last year.

Shabana Azmi

When Shabana Azmi joined the film industry, she was better recognised for her exceptional talent.

Over the years, the always well-turned out actress has earned praise for her distinct style and stunning appearance as well. Azmi, who recently featured in Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, entered the 50 club in 2000.

And in the same year, she gave one of her most powerful performances as the titular character in Godmother.

Sangeeta Bijlani

Before she bid Bollywood adieu to get married to cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin, Sangeeta Bijlani made many a hearts skip beats with her sizzling act in Tridev and Jurm.

And while she may not be doing movies, 'Bijli' as she's fondly known among close friends is quite a hottie when she turned 50 three years ago.

Jaya Prada

From providing tough competition to Rekha and Sridevi to mainstream politics, Jaya Prada has led quite an eventful celebrity existence.

The gorgeous star of Sargam, Tohfa, Sharaabi and Maa continues to exude her trademark radiance after turning 50 last year.

Waheeda Rehman

Be it Amitabh Bachchan or audience, no one can rave enough about Waheeda Rehman's loveliness.

The Chaudhvin Ka Chand legend turned 50 in 1986 -- during the filming of Allah-Rakha -- proving a true beauty at any age is timeless, classic and awe-inspiring.

Sharmila Tagore

Like Rehman, Sharmila Tagore's regal charm and effortless good looks continue to sparkle even though she's a grandmom of two.

And this still from the film Aashiq Awara shows us how pretty the 68 year old looked in the year 1994 when she celebrated her golden birthday.

Dimple Kapadia

The wide-eyed Raj Kapoor discovery was only a teenager when she asked the world her most quoted dialogue, 'Mujhse dosti karoge?'

And that friendship and her ravishing good looks have maintained themselves admirably even as Dimple Kapadia turned 50 in June 2007, during the filming of Phir Kabhi.
