Bollywood actresses from Vidya Balan to Kriti Sanon attempt to redefine their on-screen persona with relatively challenging roles!
Bollywood actresses have been breaking out the typical mode of leading heroines in films. They are also experimenting with vivid characters and stories in various genres. Given the success of the emerging genre (where women feature prominently), film-studios appear to be more confident about producing female-oriented movies. Part of the change also reflects the greater spending power of Indian women.
Women no doubt are elated that they are getting better and bigger roles. They are not just ‘succumbed’ to play only the male lead’s girlfriend, sister or mother. The audience also wants to see movies starring women in movies they can relate to. Not typical action or fantasy fare, where these actresses are merely eye-candy for male movie-goers.
Several actresses also have been experimenting by going bald or gaining weight or donning minimal make-up to play relatable characters on big screen.
Female-oriented movies have been doing extremely well at the box office. Films like Mary Kom, Piku, Queen, Maardani, Tanu Weds Manu and also many as such are considered a big hit in Bollywood.
