All women are beautiful in their own way and so is every women in India and in the media industry. People aspire to be like these women or at least create a role model out of them, not only because of beauty but also because of the example they create for young women all around. Here is a list of top 20 most beautiful Indian actresses ever based on their popularity, glamorous appearances in Bollywood Movies!
1. Priyanka Chopra
“Quantico”, “Baywatch”, and Miss world 2000 – Three big hits and promoting India’s film industry seems to be Priyanka’s passion now, as she is killing everything she does in the best way possible. It is time Indians embraced their natural skin colour and South Asian features as beautiful. Stay empowering and beautiful Priyanka!
2. Deepika Padukone
Actresses who create controversy through the movie they act in are the best kin of people. “Padmaavat” was a bold move, and some people loved her for that. She isn’t included in the list of highest paid actresses for nothing. Even her character in “xXx Return of the Xander Cage” was tremendous. How are her dimples and features so on fleek all the time?
3. Aishwarya Rai
Even though Aishwarya was missing in Amitabh Bachan’s Twitter post on Women’s day, she is always there in our hearts and screens. The Miss World winner of 1994 is always seen on point with her outfits and makeup and accessories, and with her perfectly adorable daughter. May she always be this pretty.
4. Sonam Kapoor
I think I caught a glimpse of this beautiful lady in Coldplay’s music video of “Hymn for the Weekend”. Recently creating an uproar with “Padman” and the controversies regarding ‘feminine’ freedom, Sonam is known for doing bold and unique roles as she did one in “Neerja”. I have always thought, and will always think that Sonam is one of the most beautiful Indian actresses ever!
5. Preity Zinta
Not really seen in many movies today, but still very popular among teenagers due to her unique name and her acting skills. She has worked in Telugu, Punjabi, and English cinema industry along with Hindu film industry which is remarkable. I just hope to see more of her beautiful features on the screen these days.
6. Ileana D’Cruz
The Telugu actress has never failed to surprise us with her achievements, and her innocent features with a touch of remarkable mature beauty. Ileana’s most recent film “Rustom” was a series of hit songs, and she certainly nailed her acting. She truly deserves all the accomplishments she has gained.
7. Anushka Sharma
Before I move to her upbeat roles in movies, I just need to say that Anushka and Virat Kohli are the cutest couple, and I hope they spend the rest of their lives together. (Fan girl mode over) So her newest movie “Pari” came out and the posters depicting Anushka are tremendously amazing! Even though they caked and edited her beautiful face, she still looks less scary and prettier. I wonder how?
8. Kangana Ranaut
Where there is Kangana – there is controversy, but all hail Ms. Ranaut, for taking a stand for what you believe in. This world already has a lot of gender inequality and patriarchy, and we need more people like you who can empower women the way they should be. And honestly, besides your ever-so-amazing looks, this is what makes you beautiful.
9. Rani Mukerji
Winning at everything she does in life, Rani Mukerji is always seen smiling amidst all troubles and joys. After doing really iconic films like “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai”, Rani is seen portraying powerful roles in many other movies, the most recent one being “Hichki”. I look forward to see her look as flawless as ever.
10. Parineeti Chopra
With her cutesy and adorable features Parineeti Chopra has always been among the top most beautiful Indian actresses ever. She being as talented as ever has a triple honours degree in business, finance, and economics has given her credibility and makes it known that women in India are as empowered as they should be. We hope she keeps being a role model.
11. Alia Bhatt
Again, a British nationality but a very popular actress in India, probably making an Indian Ariana Grande, Alia Bhatt has always stayed above haters even when memes about her were circulating around. She has her own charisma and her cute personality and looks just makes everything a win-win situation. Go Alia!
12. Shraddha Kapoor
If only I could revisit those “Teen Patti” days. Shraddha Kapoor has never failed to astound us with the talent and the beauty she has. Shakti Kapoor, undoubtedly proud of his daughter, must know that her daughter falls among the list of 20 most beautiful Indian actresses ever. Truly wish that Shraddha keeps doing what she does – Act!
13. Sri Devi
The late Sri Devi who recently passed away was an amazing actress and we hope that she finds peace. Sri Devi was known for some marvelous movies like “English Vinglish”, and the more recent “Mom”. Sri Devi, even at 54, remained as flawless as ever, bringing delicacy everywhere. We hope that she rests in peace.
14. Katrina Kaif
Even though she is English, I think we can safely count her in the list of most beautiful Indian actresses ever, because let’s be honest, she has come a far way in Bollywood and made her name known through. She has worked hard and won many hearts of the Indian public with her skills and innocent look. She’s still a healthy competition for everyone else out there.
15. Vidya Balan
Absolutely credible in doing amazingly plotted films with strong story-line Vidya Balan has never failed to amuse us with her talent and skills. Her movies watched by the best of the best with many acknowledgements her way. He face shines even in her sorrow and she manages to portray the raw beauty of life. Keep at it Vidya! We love you.
16. Madhuri Dixit
The miss-known-for-her-dance-moves never fails to amuse us with her acting skills and her beauty. She falls among the list of beautiful Indian women and has all the qualities that make her rock a saari and a dance move. Can we just agree on how she makes us “haye” our “ghagras” as well?
17. Sushmita Sen
Being the first Indian woman to win the Miss Universe pageant in 1994, Sushmita has never failed to let the world know who the boss is. She makes her presence felt, and we are honored to have her in the list of the most beautiful Indian actresses ever. I mean, some guys wouldn’t mind having you as their “main hoon na”.
18. Sonakshi Sinha
With her debut in “Himmat wala” and then a big time run in “Dabang” Sonakshi has been known all around because of her innocent yet fierce character. Her thappar dialogue has been popularly used and her typically subtle features makes her count as one of the most beautiful Indian actresses ever.
19. Kareena Kapoor
One of the most hit actresses and still iconic as her character of “Poo” from “Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Ghum” Kareena Kapoor stands out for her beautiful features and strong personality. As a mom, she has herself composed, and manages to rock out every look and outfit. She is the confidence we all need.
Kajol has been acting since a really long time and we can all admit we have even seen her amazing acting on screen, but what stands out is that she looks fabulous as ever even now. The recent movie “Dilwale” was a hit and Kajol was one of the reasons why. No doubt she stands in the list of most beautiful Indian actresses ever.
