They say it is a male dominant industry and heroines just add to the glamour quotient. But there are certain actresses who have made it on their own, emerged as actors to recon with. We take a look at 10 powerful actresses who we would want to play certain roles.
She has played a bubbly girl-next-door in almost all her films. So about changing the image for a bit. Anushka Sharma could play a battered, demure housewife a la Tabu in Astitva style, who, after facing years of torture, finds courage to walk out of a bad marriage.
Cold, manipulative, clever politician- thats what we would like Kareena Kapoor to play in a film. She is a director's actress and if given the right kind guidance, manages to shine in her role.
She is a versatile actress, so for Konkona Sen Sharma, no role is difficult. She has played a schizo in the past but we'd like her to be a part of a spy thriller. Maybe as a femme fatale? Should be interesting.
Deepika Padukone surprised all with her role in 'Cokstail'. Mostly seen in glamorous role, someone should cast Deepika in character which has been wronged by the society. A la female version of the angry young man. Let Padukone prove her acting prowess once again, let her surprise us all once again.
Ileana D'Cruz made heads turn with her Bollywood debut 'Barfi!'. While she played a girl-next-door in the film, we would like her to play a character of a con woman; something similar to what Rani Mukerji did in 'Bunty Aur Babli'.
From an B-grade actress to an undercover agent for the government, Vidya Balan has played varied roles. As she gears up to play the lead role in the biopic on MS Subbulakshmi, we want her to play something diametrically opposite; a role of a manipulative bookie who has men wrapped around her fingers and who calls the shots. The power pact performance by a powerful actress this one will be.
Parineeti Chopra's captivating screen presence is best suited for a character which is fiery and feisty. Someone should write a story around Parineeti, the student leader, who changes the entire political scene at the college level. Our instincts say, Parineeti will shine in it.
Mahie Gill is slowly emerging as an actress to reckon with. In a short span, Gill has done some varied roles. But we think her talent is still under used. It would be great to see Gill playing a lady don; what Shabana Azmi played in 'Godmother'.
She stunned all of us with her brilliant portrayal of an autistic girl in 'Barfi!'. Priyanka Chopra is slowly emerging as one of the finest actresses in the present times. She has already played a super model, a femme fatale, and an autistic girl. So what next? Maybe a rags to riches to story for Chopra. A sex worker who survives in this big bad world and eventually becomes a social worker who works for her people.
Katrina Kaif is mostly used as a glamour quotient in films. But what if someone offered the gorgeous actress a role similar to what Urmila Matondkar played in 'Kaun'? It would be interesting to see Kat psychopath who kills people, no?
