Powerlist: Top Bollywood Actresses

August 25, 2006
1. Rani Mukerji

If there can be a point of unanimity during any banal Bollywood discussion about numbers and ranks -- in an industry that trades loyalties every Friday -- it is simply this: Rani rules.

It's come to the point where everybody loves Rani. The film might be a painfully over-indulgent director tripping on shadows, but Rani is good.

It might be exaggerated farce written very poorly indeed, but Rani is good.

Be it a historical gone wrong or a melodramatic letdown, the truth is clear -- Rani is good.

She's a director's actress, and she's worked very hard indeed to solidify her position. Today, Rani Mukerji is reason enough to stand in line to buy tickets for a film -- an amazing feat in an overwhelmingly male dominated industry.

This year has already seen her in Karan Johar's KANK. Ravi Chopra's Baabul and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Saawariya are waiting in the wings.
