Fresh off her subtle yet unforgettable cameos in Brahmastra and her sizzling music video appearance in “Current Laga Re” in the movie Cirkus, Deepika Padukone is back with a leading role in her upcoming film Pathaan, bringing a new level of intensity to the screen. She leaves audiences in awe with her impressive stunts and butt-kicking action scenes in the trailer, making us all impatient.
While Bollywood actresses are known for their beauty and grace, here are five of them who have blown us away with their action sequences over the years:
There’s no denying that Priyanka Chopra is one of the most talented actors in Bollywood. She’s able to effortlessly switch between genres, nailing every role she plays. She performed some impressive action sequences in many of her films, such as Drona, Don, Don 2, Jai Gangaajal, and Mary Kom. Her dialogue delivery coupled with intense enterprise makes her one of the most badass actresses in Bollywood!
The Manikarnika of Bollywood, Kangana Ranaut, is known for her versatility as an actress. She has played a wide range of action-packed roles, from a genetic mutant in Krrish 3 to playing a bold and brazen character who is a crack shot in Revolver Rani. Her latest venture in the said genre was playing ruthless Agent Agni in Dhaakad.
Aishwarya Rai is next on our list, and for a good reason! This Bollywood beauty is not only gorgeous but also fearlessly bold when it comes to her film roles. Her action films include Khakee, Dhoom 2, and Jodha Akbar, to name a few. Without a doubt, she knows how to make us go crazy with her fight moves, with her eyes being the most expressive!
Shilpa Shetty, the athletic queen of Bollywood, has a fit and toned body that is perfect for action-packed roles. She has starred in numerous action movies throughout her career, including Baazigar, Aakrosh, and Dus. And after a long action hiatus, aren’t we all excited to see her return to the screen with Rohit Shetty’s web series, Indian Police Force?
Known for her roles in both romantic and action movies, Katrina has become the go-to action heroine, bringing charm and charisma to the characters she plays. After starring in films such as Ek Tha Tiger, Bang Bang, and Phantom, she has cemented her place as a leading lady in the action genre. We can’t wait to meet Zoya again in Tiger 3 already.
Isn’t it reasonable to conclude that there’s always more to Bollywood actresses than just their pretty faces? They can also pack a punch, which they always virtually do through their stellar performances and impactful on-screen presence.
