The Barfi! actor received maximum votes in a week-long poll on

Last week conducted a poll asking readers to vote for who they think is the Best Female Actor of the Generation. And we got a great response from fans – we received 12,486 votes in all. Priyanka Chopra got a whopping 37.79 percent votes and won the poll. The actor, who is on a high after a brilliant performance in Barfi! and consistent acting efforts through her career like in 7 Khoon Maaf, Fashion and Aitraaz, won the contest quite comprehensively. “PC is the Best actress,” wrote a fan.

Vidya Balan, who has delivered powerful performances in Paa, No One Killed Jessica, Ishqiya, Kahaani and The Dirty Picture, ended up in the second spot with 28.48 percent of the votes. The actor received some great comments from her fans too. “Vidya Balan has changed the male dominating film industry and she is a hit without help of a Khan or other top actors… so she deserves the best,” a female fan wrote.

Many fans felt that Priyanka and Vidya both deserved to be in the top spot. “Priyanka and Vidya are both are talented actresses, and both have excellent acting skills,” wrote a reader.

Fresh from the praise and success of Cocktail and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Deepika Padukone came third with 16.35 percent. Most surprising to us was that Kareena Kapoor filled the fourth spot with 15.19 percent votes, much lower than we expected!
