Gone are the days when Bollywood actresses packed their bags as soon as they entered in their 30s. 

Like the west, actresses truly come into form when they turn 30 and these women will back us up. Take a look!

Malaika Arora Khan

37-year-old Malaika first caught our eye with Chaiya Chaiya. She followed it with some more item numbers like Hoth Rasiley (Welcome) and the phenomenal Munni Badnaam (Dabangg).

Malaika just gets better with age.

Mallika Sherawat

Mallika is very secretive about her age but apparently, she's 30 years old. Hey, age is just a number, when you are Mallika Sherawat.

Kareena Kapoor

Kareena Kapoor may be oscillating between size zero and comfortably-plump but one thing that'll never change is her natural beauty.

The actress will celebrate her 31st birthday this month.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

At 37, Aishwarya has an impressive list of films in her filmography, a well-respected family for in-laws and now, a baby on the way!

Turns out you can have everything.

Neha Dhupia, 31, may have moved on from modelling ot acting but she's still got it. The curvy actress took the ramp by storm at the last IIFA awards.

Vidya Balan

Vidya Balan, 33, is the quintessential Indian girl who works saris and statement jewellery with ease. But that image may change after the release of her new film The Dirty Picture.

Amrita Arora

Amrita Arora, the newest addition to this category at 30, is a mum and yet exudes this exuberance that is often associated with young, carefree girls.

Ameesha Patel

It's difficult to believe that this pretty actress is 36 years old! She could easily pass off as a 20-something.

Chitrangada Singh

Chitrangada is 35 and is married to golfer Jyoti Randhawa and has a son too. In her eight years in the industry, the actress has acted in few films but it's difficult to forget a face like that, isn't it?

Lara Dutta

Mrs Bhupathi is 33 and is taking time off for motherhood. But that doesn't mean this former Ms Universe will slow down as far as her career is concerned.

The Khallas girl, 34, was busy enjoying being married until recently, when her film Shabri released and we realised that the actress has no plans to retire just yet.
