Powerlist: Top Bollywood Actresses
August 25, 2006
The lines have blurred for our femme fatales.
From melodrama to item-song, our leading ladies now have to be complete all-rounders at the craft, and thus power equations have tilted in Tinseltown.
Presenting, the Rediff Powerlist.
Rating the top actresses today, based on market appeal, box office performance, popularity and power, hype and critical acclaim.
11. Konkona Sensharma
She deservedly won a National Award for Page 3 and was in the running again for her work in 15, Park Avenue this time. Then came a disarmingly natural performance in Yun Hota To Kya
But it took an Omkara to make us stand up and applaud, as thiswoman-of-many-tongues took on a raw villager's role with infectious aplomb.
Superficial Bollywood might not be offering her the crores yet, but we're betting it won't be too long for this generation's Shabana Azmi to catch on.
