Rekha
What can we say about this timeless beauty? There was a time when she wasn’t very beautiful and was always looked down on. But now her name is synonymous with beauty and grace. Rekha started her career by Rangula Ratnam, a Telugu movie and then appeared in a Kannada movie before finally stepping into Bollywood.

Sridevi

Hawa hawai!! Sridevi worked her way up and contributed a lot to the entire Indian cinema. She appeared in many Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada movies. Her focus was never on Bollywood as an industry. She focused on being an actress and delivering exceptional performances time after time. Sridevi made her debut as an actress with a Tamil movie Thunaivan and then 13 years later she entered Bollywood with Solwa Saal.

Ileana D’Cruz

What can I say? When they say Ileana, all I can think of is Barfi! and the flawless performance that she gave in the movie. Her smile can break a million hearts and cause a traffic jam. As corny as it sound she’s just terrific. She’s only two movies old in Bollywood but has already made her mark.

Asin

Not particularly my favourite but kudos to the girl for already worked with two of the biggest Khan’s in the industry. She made her sensational debut in Ghajini with Aamir Khan. She appeared with Salman Khan in Ready and then with Mr Khiladi in Khiladi 786. What a career!

Shruti Haasan

At times she’s the spitting image of Sarika and then the next moment she’s a beauty of her own. She’s a singer by heart but also knows how to act. This beauty made her debut in Bollywood with Luck and has only appeared in few movies since then. But whatever role she did, she did it with perfection.
