Vidya Balan, Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor – who is your favourite woman of substance?

Posted Tue, March 5, 2013 12:27pm IST

It’s not their skimpy clothes or unabashed acting that draws us to these ladies. It’s the elan and belief with which they do it all. Which of Bollywood’s hottest heroines do you choose to look up to?

Women’s Day is a stone’s throw away now. And before the day dawns and the air gets filled with pastel coloured confetti, we take a little time to mull over the women who rule Bollywood. While there are plenty of lovely ladies entertaining us, there’s just a handful that we look up to today, and salute for the choices they’ve made.

And that’s because in times when so many lovely ladies seek solace in the sizzling emptiness of an item number, a few pretty ones step up to show off their acting chops – not because it’s a trend, but because they believe in what they do. These, BollywoodLifers, are the women of substance that the filmi duniya and we are proud of.

Who are we talking about? Go ahead, take a peek and tell us – which of these glam gals – Vidya Balan, Priyanka Chopra, Kalki Koechlin, Deepika Padukone and Kareena Kapoor Khan – do you think is the women of substance?

After going through the gallery, we’re sure you’ve made up your mind about who is your favourite woman of substance. So don’t wait for too long – vote for your lady…NOW!

  • Dina

    Vidya Balan all the way. She’s genuine, stays true to herself, is grounded to her roots, remains humble despite all the recognition and fame she has received and is not just ridiculously beautiful but is also blessed with brains and talent.

    A lot of actresses these days fail to think before they speak, and are boringly thin and altered with surgery. Their choice of roles don’t do justice to them and they seem so westernized in an industry that is supposed to hail the ‘indianess’ in them.

    Vidya on the other hand has single handedly proven her worth on screen, without a male lead. God bless this woman, and may she excel to greater heights than she already has achieved.

  • Siyam

    Many many luv to bebo.cause she is the best

  • julie

    Kareena Kapoor Khan

    Vidya Balan and she doesn’t need any votes since she’s not a popular girl in high school. Like other actresses, only popularity counts and when they do excellent roles, it’s few and far between. Mainly to shout on the top of the roof to take them seriously as an actress. The only reason Priyanka,Kareena and others do excellent roles is when they have to prove something in the midst of the male dominated industry. Then they go back to the Khans and other superstars mainly because their solo heroine project didn’t bring enough moolah. Vidya is the quintessential example to all struggling actors. All her debut films cancelled, whether it was Malayalam or Tamil film. For 3 years she struggled being in all facets of the profession from ads to t.v and then a Bengali film. Finally she got noticed for Parineeta, but at what cost. Surprised Vidya with no acting experience got screen tested for Parineeta 6 months. But bollywood heroines despite years of experience and still can’t act,were considered for Parineeta without blinking an eye. Whatever, she made her own path without having opportunities like Priyanka,Kareena,Deepika. Meanwhile, Kalki is not a typical Bollywood heroine. She too will struggle because she is only acting in independent cinema. Good luck to her.

    Priyanka Chopra & Deepika Padukone no doubt! These ladies are taking over the big screen!

  • Montu

    I love Vidya Balan. Others are loved much for their beauty only. Hardly much for any acting talents. If they had awesome acting skills they would have won more awards than VB. But VB is winning and winning. She was hated for her weight and dressing sense. And see, now she is called the Lady Khan of Bollywood. There is no other actress referred like that. She has been the game changer along with Kareena. Thanks Kareena for showing the heroines that they should get equal fees at par the heroes. And thanks VB, for almost many reasons – for being yourself. Even if you are fat, you can act better than the other actresses. Even without a Khan, you dare to show how better your movie is than theirs. And showing the other heroines that they should select roles which brings out their acting talents and not just hang around and run behind trees singing songs.
