Movies from the Yash Raj Films stable usually impress audiences. But it’s not just the plot, but the actors who leave a mark in people’s hearts. And the rule is that a YRF lady has to be in near-perfect form to make an impact…

After the Dhoom:3 trailer launch and song release, everyone is now waiting for the release of Yash Raj Film’s newest in the franchise. And as with every film, all eyes are ready and willing to focus on the women who star. From Esha Deol to Rimmi Sen to Bipasha Basu to Aishwarya Rai (before she became Bachchan), the Dhoom lady has always been in fabulous shape, worked out, dieted, toned and fabulously fit. And now it is Katrina Kaif‘s turn. Nobody could miss the efforts that Katrina Kaif has put in to attain her current sexy avatar.

After all, she had to live up to the standards set by the other hot babes in the previous films in the Dhoom series, hai na? And the gorgeous body is not just a Dhoom speciality; the YRF heroine must be in great shape before she becomes part of the film. In the recent past actors like Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and several others have worked hard at working out to look super hot on the silver screen. Which makes it to your list of hotties? Which star shows off the best shape? You tell us, BollywoodLifers!

Katrina Kaif: The Dhoom:3 babe has acted in several YRF projects. Last year Katrina was paired opposite Shahrukh Khan in Jab Tak Hain Jaan. And she starred in films like Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and New York. But Kat has now grabbed eyeballs with her sexy image in Dhoom:3, where she is at her sexy best, hai na? This is perhaps the first time after Sheela ki jawaani (Tees Maar Khan) that the babe has had such a fabulously toned figure. But do you think Kat has the best shape in the business?

Deepika Padukone: The leggy lass has always been in good shape – is it genetic or does she work hard on it? Under the Yash Raj Films banner Deepika Padukone has acted in Bachna Ae Haseeno and Lafangey Parindey. In both films DP’s image had been that of the girl-next-door; there was little skin show and no bikini scenes. She may not have worked out for a YRF product, but certainly looks hot in other movies. Be it in miniskirts, a bikini or a lehenga, Deepika certainly makes girls go green with envy with her curves.

Kareena Kapoor Khan: This Kapoor lass started the size zero trend in Bollywood. Kareena Kapoor (before she became a Khan) went from flab to a fab size zero for Yash Raj’s Tashan. The film may have tanked, but it gave us a new power couple in Saif Ali Khan and his future missus, who became joined at the name: Saifeena. The lovely lady did YRF’s Mujhse Dosti Karoge – and do you remember her figure back then? From well rounded to slim, she’s come a long, long way. Do you think Begum Bebo is in great shape?

Anushka Sharma: She had a dream debut opposite Shahrukh Khan in YRF’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. Under the same banner, Anushka Sharma did Badmaash Company, Band Baaja Baaraat, Ladies vs Ricky Bahl and Jab Tak Hain Jaan. When she began her journey Anushka was cute n’ chubby-faced. And then she got an image makeover to wear a bikini in Badmaash Company – did you see that tiny waist! In JTHJ the pretty girl played the role of a bubbly babe and wore shorts and jeans most of the time. While she looked good and fit the role, she looked like she had lost a tad too much weight, which left her with no curves to speak of at all! Do you think Anushka is in great shape?

Aishwarya Rai: In Dhoom:2 the former Miss World looked so hot, didn’t she? When she flaunted her sexy long legs in miniskirts and her slender waist in tiny crops tops and that toned torso in bikini bras, Ash made everyone’s heartbeat race faster than ever before. Ash’s figure in this Yash Raj film was certainly the best ever in her long filmi career, no? After that, with marriage and motherhood, she might have gone from fab to flab, but there’s no doubt that she was once super-hot stuff!

Bipasha Basu: She is known to be a fitness freak. Bipasha Basu has acted in Yash Raj’s Dhoom:2 and Bachna Ae Haseeno and we must say that in both the films the Bong bombshell looked fabulously hot. In Dhoom:2, she was seen in bikinis and her sexy curves left everyone stunned and wanting more. But does this Yash Raj actor have the best shape in Bollywood?

Priyanka Chopra: The Exotic babe was seen in Yash Raj’s Pyaar Impossible, a film very few will remember. It came post Dostana, so she already had a bikini figure. And Priyanka Chopra has lost a lot of weight in recent months, especially after her father died and she started jetting off around the world to keep up with her work commitments. It could also be ‘coz she’s now an international celebrity and Guess girl and needs to live up to the other svelte babes who are popular international figures, hai na?

Parineeti Chopra: The chirpy babe has acted in Yash Raj’s Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, Ishaqzaade and Shuddh Desi Romance. In none of the films has Parineeti given in to any demands for loads of skin show. If she grabs headlines and eyeballs, it’s solely for her performances. In fact, Pari not only has a girl-next-door face, but also the figure. But, she’s quite happy in her shoes and clothes…and curves. Parineeti might not have the enviable figure of her cousin Priyanka Chopra, but does her shape win your vote?
