Top 10 Bollywood actresses of 2012
The actresses of our Hindi film industry this year have given some power-packed performances that have pulled the audiences to the theatre. These actresses no longer need to piggyback on actors to sustain themselves in the industry. Let us take a look at some of these actresses of 2012.
Kareena Kapoor: She kick-started this year with “Ekk Main Aur Ek Tu”. She breathed life into her character of Riana Braganza. It was followed by the much hyped “Agent Vinod”, and “Heroine” that did not do well as expected but in the latter she stood out. Her last offering has been “Talaash” for which she has received huge adulation from the audiences.
Katrina Kaif: Her films “Ek Tha Tiger” and “JTHJ” proved that she no longer needs to piggyback on the Khans and has enough talent to play substantial roles.
Anushka Sharma: She has grown and matured as an actor with time. Her performance in “JTHJ” stood out among the likes of SRK and Katrina.
Deepika Padukone: Her character of Veronica in “Cocktail” proved that this model-turned-actress can act and is not just another pretty face. She proved that she has come a long way since “Om Shanti Om”.
Vidya Balan: She is one of the finest actresses of the industry. Her film “Kahaani” shook the nation with its woman-centric theme making her one of the top contenders at the award ceremonies this year.
Priyanka Chopra: Her film “Tere Mere Kahaani” might have been a flop but “Barfi!” proved that she is a threat to other actresses. She was a pleasure to watch on-screen as ‘Jhilmil’ in the film.
Bipasha Basu: This year seemed she was trying to get back into the race to the top. Her films that released in the first quarter were duds at the box-office but “Raaz 3” made up for the loss. Her performance in this film gave glimpses of the acting skills that she displayed in her initial films like “Jism” and “Corporate” that shot her to fame.
Rani Mukerjee: She is not seen onscreen as much as the other actresses are seen. Her act in “Talaash” proved that she needs no “Aiyaa” to prove her grit and talent. She is effortless and is one of the best in her league.
Sridevi: This name is a little unusual among the other list of names, but her film “English Vinglish” proved that she could be past her prime but the acting talent is ingrained in her.
Parineeti Chopra: Her film “Ishaqzaade” proved her acting ability and indicated her confidence to take on any kind of role with very little experience of films.
