They have been here, done it and then took a sabbatical. They arrived again and now you tell us, who's return made you applaud the loudest!
Bollywood is a very unfair place. If you make it big and into one of the top rungs in the industry, you are worshipped. You are wanted, desired, sought after like crazy. You are everywhere and you get overwhelmed by the attention. But the moment you decide to shift your priorities from showbiz, you have to wait it out more than the usual to orchestrate a comeback. This is absolutely true in case of actresses here. They anyway have the smallest shelf life in the industry and if you get married, tides change for you completely. Fortunately, with changing times and taste of the audience, we don't have to stay deprived of these brilliant actresses anymore. They get stories that highlight their talent and leave us impressed. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is back on the big screen as a wronged mother with Jazbaa after five years and made people realise what they were missing. Many such actresses have made their comebacks to various outcome and we would like to know who impressed you more. And your options are...
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan - Jazbaa
She is one of the most beautiful women to ever walk on earth. She is simply mesmerising and her choice of comeback makes her one of the intelligent ones too. Jazbaa has her in an author backed role of a mother who fights to get her kidnapped daughter back. It's gritty, slicky and stylish thriller which is Sanjay Gupta's forte. She got back to her sexy self for the film and staged a comeback people will remember forever.
Sridevi - English Vinglish
Everyone was waiting to see this powerhouse of talent on screen. Everytime Sridevi has worked in a film, she made us applaud loudly and then English Vinglish happened. We just couldn't have enough of her. The role of a mother bogged down by the pressures of being happening and fluent in English is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. This was one story we all could relate to because we have seen kids berating their parents for not being hip enough. You can only trust Sridevi to return after 15 years to lights camera action with such a well-meaning film and she just won us over completely!
Lara Dutta - Singh Is Bliing
In a film that has big names like Akshay Kumar in the lead and is a slapstick number, one can hardly expect anyone else to either get better screen time or better role. But Lara Dutta, who faced camera after marriage and a kid with SIB, has floored audience with her comic timing. People were stunned to see her funny side. To shine in an out and out Akshay Kumar film is no mean task and for that, you need talent. Lara, turns out, has that in dollops!
Madhuri Dixit- Aaja Nachle
Madhuri Dixit's comeback was the most awaited one and was meant to be. She is the Dhak dhak girl of Bollywood; so how can the heart beat when she is away. After 5 years, she returned to the big screen with Yash Raj Films' Aaja Nachle; flaunting her asset, that dazzling smile and the dance! She was perfect for the film but audience didn't really feel so. Whatever may be the case, the film did bring back Bollywood's crowned jewel.
Karisma Kapoor - Dangerous Ishq
Karisma Kapoor took 6 years to return as the main lead in a film called Dangerous Ishq. It was a thriller love saga spanning generations. Karisma looked beautiful but the film was hardly so. Audience rejected it instantly but she shined. Real talent glistens even in murky surroundings. Post that she has been away from the big screen. We hope she gets a role befitting her calibre to do.
So these are the comebacks we were pretty excited about. Some we enjoyed, others left us scarred, threatening to wipe out every ounce of belief in a few actresses. But we want you to tell us which among these were your favourites. Vote away!
