Sonakshi Sinha, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif

Shotgun junior has beaten all her contemporaries to become the most bankable leading lady of B-Town

Akshay Kumar’s Holiday, the latest entrant to the Rs 100 crore club, has brought some great news for Sonakshi Sinha. She has conquered the tag of the reigning queen of Bollywood with five Rs 100 crore films under her belt. People may keep comparing Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vidya Balan and others for the best heroine spot, but for once Sona baby has left all her contemporaries behind in the race and emerged as the most bankable heroine of B-Town.

Before Holiday, Sonakshi helped movies like Rowdy Rathore, Son of Sardaar, Dabangg 2 and Dabangg reach the Rs 100 crore mark. On the other hand Deepika Padukone achieved the feat four times with Chennai Express, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram Leela and Race 2. Priyanka Chopra also reached the coveted landmark four times with Krrish 3, Agneepath, Don 2 and Barfi! Kareena Kapoor Khan may not have many movies to boast of, but she definitely reached the coveted Rs 100 crore mark four times with 3 Idiots, Ra. One, Bodyguard and Golmaal 3. Katrina Kaif’s three big tickets were her films with the three Khans. Dhoom:3, Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Ek Tha Tiger made Kats reach the coveted Rs 100 crore mark only thrice. However, there was also a dark horse among others. With movies like Ghajini, Housefull 2, Ready and Bol Bachchan reaching the Rs 100 crore mark, Asin too touched the Rs 100 crore feat four times.

Now audiences might keep comparing heroines based on their acting abilities, but producers definitely compare them on their bankable status. And with five Rs 100 crore films Sonakshi is definitely going to be the toast among the filmmakers. Industrywallas have also stopped complaining about Sonakshi’s weight issues, because her looks hardly matter when she rakes in the moolah. Hai na peeps?

    yess sonakshi’s 100 crores movies which has her very little scope to perform in son of sardar holiday dabangg 2 unlike priyanka n deepika who has don2 barfi agneepath ram leela yjhd those great roles

    • euglo

      Yjhd ramleela ce aren’t gr8 roles

      • Shahrukh Ji

        In agneepath lol what pryanka was like a fucking fly in that movie she was like the background person for me lol I dint see any talent at all

      • aliya

        keep barking but world will listen to people lie big b who watched ramleela 3 times in single day and praised slb,dp,rs a lot. who hell on earth will listen to u insecure fans

      • tariq

        I m not pointing any one but i think pc is the only actress who can do all types of challenging roles, deepika is also good but she become successful in 2013 just bcoz other actresses didint hav any good movie, that made very easy for deepika to succeed.

  • rahul

    one more thing sonakshi doesnt rake in moolah she just has been lucky with good films not great roles as akshay n ajay salman who have been ruling those films n in lootera where sonakshi did a good job that movie didnt even cross 50 crores

    • euglo

      That is the problem with indian audience they don’t perfer good movies like lootera they perfer masala movies or sloppy rom coms or even remake of romeo and juliet over and over again I mean what was the difference between ishaqzaade and ram leela ishaqzaade didn’t cross 100 cr bcz actors in it were not romantically involved or popular I perfr ishaqzaade to ram leela it is still decent attempt just bcz ram leela had slb and fancy stuff waste of money and resouces seriously

      • jazz

        I so agree with you

  • subiksha

    Deepika and Priyanka did films which had challenging roles unlike sonakshi whose films were more hero centric

    • Iman Ali

      Chinaee bkwass express was hero centric film, naina character is not challenging neither alinas character in race2. Krrish3 was hero centric film, even katrina score highest in hero centric films than these actresses…. Sonakshi is great actress

      • Vinod Vijayan

        Oh…please…i…think…u…need…a…doctor….after…cocktail….the…world…knws…deepy…is…a..,great…actress…and….last….4movies..of…her…which…crossed…hundred…crores…she…had….xactly…diffrnt…charectrs..,nd…each…movies…were…diffrnt….genre..bt…if…u…c…sona..,her…these…movies…are,.,same..,masala.,hero…centric…were…she…dnt,.hv.,much…scope….even…here…roles….were.,same..,,,,bt…ali…learn…2..respect..,other..humens…….if,..u.,dnt…like…them.,.also.

        • Iman Ali

          But she is far behind from vidya n priyanka, her acting couldnt inspire me so much except in ram leela. But today action films are more in demand than desi films. Deepika can just do masala fims i know she has not capability to perform as super woman like Katrina kaif….

          • euglo

            haha you are saying that her acting in ramleela inspire you the story lack originality, it couldn’t be watched with family the same story of romeo juliet done in fancy way is just waste of time money and resources if it had a nice story i would love it but they made it more sleazy to appeal to indian audience

      • Stupid sonakshi

        Oh really can u do the role of meenama in chennai express!!!!!! It was a challenging role and so was of ramleela’s leela, deepika is here because of her talent and priyana too is here beacuse of her talent #barfi ! Sonakshi is here cause she is a star kid!!!!! She is using her father’s success! So u just shut up and focused !!!!!!

        • euglo

          that mindless comedy anybody could play role of meenama and what was challenging in ram leela oh yea romancing her boy toy ranveer give me a break can deepika play the role of pc in barfi no only movie that of deepika is exciting me is Piku rest of it her luck that not many people gave her competion in 2013

          • Shahrukh Ji

            I agree that not maney people did movies in 2013

          • aliya

            ehmm let me remind u ok.
            vidya balan= ghanchakkar a tal flop even disaster
            priyanka= krish3 blockbuster but credit gone to hr. zanjeer total flop.
            kareena= satyagarh, average. gori tere pyar me disaster.
            anushka= matru ki bijle….. average
            asin= no films
            kat= dhoom 3 but totally aamir film and she had nothing to do.
            here u see mr that all actresses had there releases but its not deepikas fault that these actresses were flop at box office. so just think before u say dude. in 2013 sonakshi, parineeti and shraddha made there mark with movies like lootera, shuddhi desri, aashiqui. what can deepika do if all other actress are doing crap films. idiot crap.

          • aliya

            hahahaha who even listens to u barking dogs the fact is that deepika got praised from legends like big b, zeenat, sridevi and salman. kareena could have been good choice for ramleela but ce was not easy just imagine vidya balan opppss sorry famous directors to vidya ko apni films me b nae lete just imagine her running behind train srk would have been dead by that moment. all u deepika haters are jealous of her success and appreciation so u comment bulshit on sites.

          • arohi

            just check your sense of humour.
            vidya did ghanchakar total flop.
            priyanka did zanjeer flop, krish3 hit but credit gone to hr.
            Katrina did dhoom3 just a cameo role
            anushka did matru I bijlee.. average
            asin did not do any films
            kareena did gori tere… disaster
            so here u see mr despo hater of dp every actress had releases in 2013, it was not fault of deepika that she was only successful actress in 2013 while your dirty balan and kk were busy preparing crap films. just get ur facts straight and try to be sensible despite of insecure hater.

        • Shahrukh Ji

          Lol deepica is here because of her talent is the funniest shit I have ever hurd… she is pritty, fit, and idk whay but srk likes her that’s the only reason whay she is here…pr yanka can act and so can sonakshi (if you have seen lootera) videa Balan is the best actress bollywood has now…and katrena kaif can dance that’s all..

        • aliya

          no yar deepika is fabulously talented actress I agree but sonakshi was the only actress who give dp quite tough competition with lootera. when other actresses were busy doing crap films like ghanchakkar (vidya) gori tere pyaar mein (kareena). sonakshi is a tough competitior and she will definitely give mindblowing performences in future as well.

      • anjali

        u r MAD that FFFFFAAAAATTTTTYYYYYY sonakshi is worth nothing

      • aliya

        for your kind information in ce deepika even took over srk and was praised more than her, in cocktail she took limelight from saif as well and was said hero of film. sonakshi is jhakkas performer but she appears in mancentric movies her best work till date was lootera.

    • euglo

      Sonakshi also did lootera which is grt than any yjhd or ram leela atleast she didn’t need her boy friends to prove anything

      • Shahrukh Ji

        Thank you! Finally some body feels the same way

    • aliya

      right sona is talented but appear in man centric movies mostly

  • Harsh Gupta

    it seems that kareena n katrina hve refused interviews to bollywood life. for a time they were criticising kareena for everything now they hve started for katrina as well. there was no need for writing this line ” Kareena Kapoor Khan may not
    have many movies to boast of “,” Katrina
    Kaif’s three big tickets were her
    films with the three Khans.
    Dhoom:3, Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Ek
    Tha Tiger made Kats reach the
    coveted Rs 100 crore mark only
    thrice” very bad journalism being fully biased and arrogant to some of superstars due to their personal issue

    • aisha

      Totally agree, at first i thought it was nothing but now it’s too obvious that there is bias in the way they write ,keeping in mind that this is a gossip site, yet somethings r just unnecessary. It’s not like they will always continue to favour certain actresses, it’s more like they go where ever the wind blows. Once sona becomes the next big thing, it will seem to u like they never favoured Dp or sometimes pc.
      So long as we keep fussing , they r gonna keep writing .
      By the way pc is my favourite .

    • Tanyakapoor

      Katrina kaif rejected kochahdaiyaan, happy new year, chennai express, ramleela and yeh jawani hai deewani!!!get a life deepika lover! Yes they are partial

      • u

        because those movies required fluent hindi speakers and acting not dancing idiot

        • Iman Ali

          What deepika was in kochadiyyan? Lol i didnt see her. Many actresses can speak hindi fluently vidya, priyanka, kareena, sonakshi, alia …. Deepika didnt do anything incredible… Chinaee bkwass express worst film ever, hny big flop or disaster of the year as we know farah khans masala in the film, worst direction. Cheapika is loosing her carrer soon. Her coices of films are really awful.

          • euglo

            I agree 2 of her films yjhd and ram leela only famous bcz of her affairs with leads and CE being srk film and mindless comedy did the business it did so nthing special in deepika her only luck was no other actress were competing with her just bcz all her films realesed in 2013 doesn’t mean she is queen

          • aliya

            yeah like ur Katrina is famous for her leaked bikini pics hahahahahahahahahaha

          • Shahrukh Ji

            I agree that Chennai express was not that grate I thought r…raj Kumar was a better story line and better acting…Chennai express was a hit because of Srk and deepick had nothing to do with it

          • aliya

            get a life moron. deepika won applauds than srk she won jury choice award for ce that srk didn’t. just grow up mams boy

          • Shahrukh Ji

            I agree..that chenni express was not the best film..it was hyped about because shahrukh was in the leading role..as of his fan im disappointed at his preformence…I thought r…rajkumar had better story, action sequences, and comic timing

          • aliya

            hahahahahaha that shows u r not a Katrina fan but deepika hater. who cannt digest dp success but dude ce was a film where dp performance was applauded even more than SRK no like Katrina who lost in somewhere in jthj even anushka managed to tok over her

        • euglo

          Well atleast she was considered for it ur dp always second choice or always begging for roles she ain’t tht grt

  • aisha

    Good 4 her and the other heroines. However everyone knows damn well it takes more than the hero or heroine to make a hit movie. Guess that doesn’t matter to bollywood life.
    I do like sonakshi, i think she is cool.

  • Iman Ali

    Cheap bollywood life of cheapika padukonney, u didnt write zindagy na mile gy dubara….. Cheapika padukony is paying you, cheapest actress of bollywood, waiting for cheapikas next flopssssss finding funny n hny bkwasssss

    • Jaishree Pathak

      You asshole..Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara didn’t cross 100 crore mark………Get ur facts right……

      • Tanya Kapoor

        It did hahahhaha lol u get ur facts right

        • Jaishree Pathak

          It was a great and memorable movie no doubt…But it didn’t cross the 100 crore mark…..hahahhah….lol….go check thee facts properly…!

      • Shahrukh Ji

        It should have it was a great and memorable movie

      • aliya

        but znmgd was one mvi where I liked kat

    • aliya

      like slutrina is paying u to defend herself

  • euglo

    Who carez about this 100 crore club it is a joke I mean out of the movies mentioned above how many a women carried on their shoulders none only pc barfi was the best even dp film worked bcz of either srk or being a girlfriend to rk and rs offcourse if you work with khans it is added bonus but what gets me no matter how crappy the story is it still somehow manages to reach 100 crores

  • euglo

    Women will only be secondary in bwood if likes of vidya and priyanka who managed to do women centric film can be apperciated more

  • jazz

    Sonakshi and kareena are on par if you see it that way. Both were blessed with the Kumars and khans while PC and DP weren’t. So it really doesn’t matter if she 10 films like that

    • euglo

      DP was blesses with a khan in her debut and ce, rk in yjhd and rs in ramleela

      • jazz

        Rk and rs are still paving their way towards the so called global stardom while SRK has it already. So you can call only 1 of them a blessing….at least as of now.. And hellooo not to forget, dp got the Filmfare for ramleela and not RS. So it was the acting only.

        • euglo

          What rk already had 100 crore movie barfi the extra was added bcz of the chemistry and sum acting frm dp if rk wasn’t in it I wld have believed it as for rs well he proved his mettle as an actor in lootera and he has huge fan following too not just dp and the film wasn’t solely deepika if ranveer wasn’t in it this wld have been flop
          they only gave dp an award bcz they cldn’t find anyone else otherwise that sleazy movie and a remake of romeo juliet were nothing to be recognised for I mean I wldn’t waste my time watching a sleazy remake only wasted my time watching it cuz had nothing to doplus slb factor also helped

          FYI ranbir is already counted as a superstar by everyone

    • Iman Ali

      Dp is fucking srk to get the roles in films, samething done by priyanoa but priyanka is admirable for her some good acting skills.

  • Iman Ali

    100 crore club is old now…. Dp, pc n sonakshi are happy on 100 crore clubs tben its ok for them. But katrina is doing action films which are always high in demand n have capability to reach 200 crore club. I wish bang bang to cross 300 crore film and this film worth it.

  • Deepzzzz

    deepika is d best actress…..no one can beat her acting in ramleela yjhd chennai express ….those who watched d movie can und….she is d best entertainer..neither katrina nor priyanka cant give tht much perfection

    • euglo

      Hahahaha blind fan kareena could easily have done her role in ram leela and ce or some other girl fem south cld easily played ce as for yjhd I think anyone could have played tht role it only worked because rk and dp were once in relationship

      • Iman Ali

        But next time it will not work for film, tamasha will be big flop

  • <3cppd<3

    Hail to the 3 qweens Deepika Priyanka Sonakshi

  • Stupid sonakshi

    Come on sonakshi u could have shared that sonakshi added has become a100 crore deal. U needed to share that u hav beated #deepikapadukone and #priyankachopra u r just boasting nd showing off that u have beated them come on! They have better acting skills than u and they have proved it with #ramleela and #barfi !!! U just wanna shw off that u r the best but u r not! U have ego which is clearly seen by the link u chose to share! U are jealous and u feel insecure due to those gr8 talents! Please stop show off and learn some acting. U r in the industry not because of ur talent but because of ur legendary father’s success. Please stop using this starkid power. #deepika nd #priyanka have struggled nd achieved it with their acting skills. Please stop it chose another carrer !!!!! #freebollywoodfromstarkidpower #pleasestopshowoff!!!!!!!!!! Ur well wisher

    • p

      You are one big IDIOT! Go worship your Deepika!! And for your info almost all successful films of PC were because of her co actors(hritik,shahrukh,ranbir,etc) and same with that talentless Katrina(shahrukh, aamir,salman)! Coming to acting department a film called Lootera released which was a HUGE hit with critics! And it didn’t have stupid kissing and bed scenes like Ramleela! She didn’t win award s for that because Deepika was given importance for her 4 hits in a row(2 films with her boyfriends ranbir/ranveer) .
      I understand that u don’t like her but atleast get ur facts rite before posting such comments!
      PS-Nothing against DP,PC and Kat.. All are lovely actresses and so is Sona. Respect everyone’s work.

    • euglo

      if you are saying that they struggled plz only priyanka or viya or kangna i agree with dp hahaha she didn’t struggle bt got lucky with her bfs

    • euglo

      when deepika can boast of her being a queen status why cant sonakshi

  • Rox

    Those fans bragging about how DP and PC are self made,hard working stars should b aware of their dark sides too. Beginning with deepika,everyone knows she rose to stardom because of SRK…otherwise she was nowhere. After debut she gave out flops but stayed in news due to her long list of boyfriends. Used RK and for BH and broke up with him. Again did flops and then came Race 2 in which her role required only bikinis and short dresses..0 acting. CE was a hit ONLY because of SRK and Rohit. She was the surprise package. YJHD was a beautiful film… No criticism there. But the highly over rated Ramleela was crap. Bed scenes,kisses per second,crazed fans!
    PC doesnt even require any explanation. Started off as. An ugly duckling and later did loads of surgeries. Used SRK for success..did negligible roles in HR’s big budget films. Standout films: Barfi, 7 khoon(big flop).
    Last Ms Katrina Kaif who is still useless… Started with an adult film sitting on salman’s shoulders. Did MPKK(with salman again) after debut flopped. Became the eye candy in Akshay, SRK and Aamir films… No acting centered role… Never carried any film on her shoulders… Used men to stay on top. Only acting role-New York( least use of hindi)
    The only aim behind writing so much is just to show that every actress has her own bad side. Not only sonakshi but even these Top 3 heroines have done mega hit hero centered films. All of them are atleast 7 years old in the industry buy Sona is relatively new with 4 years of experience. It’s okay to like any actress but that does not mean u bash other actress who is younger in experience. Some fans should really learn to digest others success rather than criticising.

    • euglo

      whose fan are you??? ok i agree they all aren’t that great but atleast all tried different roles so what if they saw failure what do you expect from katrina’s debut she wouldn’t have gotten a debut opp srk like deepika or anushka or even akshay since pc started with akshay and to give a lecture abut how she stared in adult bollywood seems to enjoy that crap anyways katrina rose to fame bcz of salman like ok he may have helped her like he helps all those useless girls anyway only fault of kat was dating that oldie anyways not gonna bad mouth him maybe she felt obligated cause only person she knew then was salman and she said many times he was the one who guided her through tough phase of life when no one wanted to work with her but she is popular due to her own merits and hardwork, she only worked with srk once and amir once
      coming to sonakshi again who helped her yes salman so she did films with akshay salman and akshay no varieity until came lootera for which she did great
      Dp i am not going in detail because i agree with u long list of boyfriend in which she broke many hearts and yet she cries for ranbir
      PC ugly duckling hello heard of her miss world title, srk for success only movie she did with srk was don. and oh yes i think you are oblivious to the fact that she did a national award winning film called fashion do check out if you have spare time from writing this cause you probablly don’t knw

      • euglo

        and talking about sonakshi she didn’t even know if she wanted to be an actress until salman told her she wanted to be probaly do something in fashion others wanted to be actress so no wonder she came late, i am not saying sonakshi is bad she is like any other actress in this male dominated industry

      • Rox

        Yeah bout PC I agree I missed Fashion… Great movie it was. My favourite film of PC. U r asking me whose fan I am? Let me tell u: noone. I wrote that because I didnt feel right about ppl bashing sona for her success. Wht’ s wrong with ppl? If it is ssaid that DP is a Queen everyone will agree. But if it is said that Sona has more 100cr films than her and other actress everyone will lash out at her. Instead of Congratulating ppl are finding faults im her. And if u read carefully the article says she is bankable… No mention of her being a better ACTRESS than DP or PC.
        Btw PC won Miss Wrld final cause of her answer… Not her looks. Check out on web how she looked before and after surgery.

        • euglo

          oh well than it makes sense yes i agree that they should congratulate her instead of bashing but what can you expect from blind fans they saw that someone beat deepika they will bash her to no end, but i will congratulate her

          • Rox

            Atleast someone on BL is sensible. All these DP fans don’t seem to accept the success of sona.
            PS – looking at ur previous comments i guess u r a huge PC fan… Although i don’t like her, i would apologize to a sensible fan of hers for insulting her:Sorry :$

          • euglo

            Yes I am fan of everyone in bollywood I mean they deserve their place in the industry but some fans think their idol is so grt and bring down others thats what i dont like and no need to apologize you are just voicing your opinion like me

        • euglo

          Oh comeon you are telling me you don’t need beauty to win peagents mix of beauty and brains helped her bag that title

    • euglo

      and many people with disagree with you abt dp using ranbir telling you now so you will know ranbir broke up with her and started dated katrina wouln’t blame him she cheated many

      • aliya

        rk didn’t broke up with her he cheated her he admit that hiself that he slept with slutrina when he was in relation with dp. world knows that but u dp hater, u r just using kats name to insult dp but no one is taking u seriously and u cant digest that

  • euglo

    I think the real queen is kangana ranaut the title is apt for her just like her film title

  • Sagar Kapoor

    fully agree with subiksha

  • O K

    Deepika has the fifth one as well and that is Cocktail and whole of the movies doen by Deepika were exceptional , challenging and remarkable.. different characters and tuff jobs ! what the fuck sonakshi has to do with her movies ? except moving her fucking terrified structure !! Deepika Padukone is the Best and she will rule the industry until she stays in … #SonakshiCartCrap

    • Iman Ali

      Cheapika is using srk to get roles, her films went by chance, will never happen again

    • jazz

      agreed. But I love PC also

  • Shahrukh Ji

    I love how she didnt have to shed her cloth to be a qween!

  • FizZy KHan

    Where is Deepika’s OM SHANTI OM ? COCKTAIL? No counts of these films ?

  • Ritesh

    Guys stop arguing in vain…i’m huge fan of deepika n right now c is the reinging queen bt what the point is sonakshi proved her talent in Lootera…bt that doesn’t make her “reigning queen” or the bankable actress…. coz her most of the hit movies were hero-oriented…….As of deepika her character in movies were commericially and critically acclaimed..
