Rani as Mardaani, Kangana is Queen: 2014 was the year of heroines
It’s no surprise that Bollywood is slowly but surely going through a transition, giving our heroines their due respect with more women-oriented films. Year 2014 has been a fabulous year for Bollywood actresses, many of whom not only owned the screen but brought a certain charisma and character to it, while doing so.
The year began with evergreen beauty Madhuri Dixit share screen space along with Bollywood talent, Huma Qureshi in ‘Dedh Ishqiya’. Madhrui Dixit received much praise for her portrayal of Begum in the film.
And of course, Kangana Ranaut blew us away with her incredible performance in Vikas Bahl’s ‘Queen’, where she played the girl dumped-at-the alter only to find a life full of surprise.
Bollywood’s sweetheart Alia Bhatt went de-glam for her role of the abductee in Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Highway’, which was both soulful and freeing at the same time.
And who can forget Priyanka Chopra’s raw performance as boxing champion, Mary Kom in the film. Vidya Balan played the first ever woman detective in Dia Mirza’s production ‘Bobby Jasoos’ and Rani Mukerji was the brave and dedicated Police officer Roy in ‘Mardaani’, who goes to great lengths to save the day.
All these films centered on the woman in the film, going against the age-old practice of having the male lead steal the show, allowing women not only to evolve but enjoy the limelight when it comes to talent in cinema.
