Bollywood is no longer only male-centric. More and more females are becoming the pillars of the Silver Screen by playing strong roles which are written keeping them in mind. Actresses who don such roles do absolute justice to them overshadowing their male counterparts easily.
Here’s revisiting stunning performances put forward by 9 Bollywood Actresses in 2018.
1.Deepika Padukone in Padmavat
Loads of controversies surrounded Padmavat including the Karni Sena vandalism and the film opened up to mixed critical reviews! But all of this put together couldn’t deter Deepika Padukone to pull off the show as Rani Padmavati. She looked gracious and applied precision to her acting living up to all the hype surrounding this period drama.
2.Alia Bhatt in Raazi
From a bubbly and chirpy girl in Student of the Year to a Spy serving the Indian Nation in Raazi, Alia Bhatt has certainly evolved as an actress getting better with every movie that she has starred in. Her performance was killer in the movie while she looked her innocent best. We are quite ‘Sehmat’ with Sehmat, aren’t we?
3. Neena Gupta in Badhaai Ho
The generation that grew up in the ‘70s, 80’s and even ‘90s has seen late pregnancies in their families yet staying blind to the fact that middle-aged couples can/do have sex. Badhaai Ho was exactly based on this theory and it received an amazing response from the Indian audience and Neena Gupta’s role as the middle-aged impregnated mother received rave reviews. Neena did justice to her role as Mrs. Kaushik.
4. Rani Mukerji in Hichki
Rani is used to playing female-centric and meaty roles and delivers them with such precision. She won our hearts again as the Teacher in Hichki, who was suffering from Tourette Syndrome. Rest is history.
5. Swara Bhaskar in Veere Di Wedding
The Bad-ass and fearless Sakshi of Veere Di Wedding, no one else had the guts to pull-off a masturbation scene than Swara herself. Backlashed from the patriarchal society and being slut-shamed for her bold scenes never got in her way to stop delivering bindass performances for her fans.
6. Tabu in Andhadhun
Tabu shines with a terrific performance in Andhadhun adding to its thrill factor by her honest portrayal of a cheating wife of a yesteryear star and a crime accomplice wanting to do away with every evidence that comes her way. She stands timeless in today’s sexist and ageist Bollywood.
7. Nushrat Bharucha in Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety
Nushrat Bharucha was excellent in Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety! Though her character has been bashed in the movie, her performance hogs the limelight. She has been very brave in sporting the role and we can’t have enough of her already!! Swag suits this one!
8. Shraddha Kapoor in Stree
Shraddha rocked in this Comedy Horror Flick. Brewing up suspense with every trailer, shraddha portrayed a suspicious and mysterious role convincingly. “O Stree Kal Ana” the famous dialect from Stree is a thing of the past as we wait in anticipation for Stree 2 soon. Go for it Shraddha!!
9. Sara Ali Khan in Kedarnath
Member of the Pataudi clan, Sara Ali Khan didn’t surprise us at all when she received praises and accolades for her performance in Kedarnath. She proved that she was more than just a new star kid on the block. Sara brings a lot of Amrita Singh to the platter including her old-world charm inherited from her mother.
