Actresses like Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut have endowed a new legacy of beauty-with-brains that the younger actresses will follow. These desirable beauties have proved they aren’t a glam doll in their films; in fact, they can out-rule the actors of the film. These actresses are witty along with being gorgeous and know what would work best for them. Let’s take a look at some more B-town beauties, who have a higher intelligent quotient.
Parineeti Chopra : This Chopra
girl, who recently blew everybody’s minds with her magical and inspirational
transformation, knows how to roll it. She dazzled in her debut film Lady Vs Ricky Bahl with her bubbly
character. In the present scenario, she is undoubtedly YRF’s favourite protégé.
Her roles in her films are lengthier than her heroes, be it Daawat-E-Ishq or Shuddh Desi Romance. She gained a lot of limelight with her recent
weight loss campaign. The bubbly girl has now transformed herself into an ultra
slim and alluring diva.
Kriti Sanon : The young and
pretty Kriti Sanon, who holds an engineering degree, is quite witty. The new-age diva is picky when it comes
to film offers and knows well what works for her. She was offered role opposite
Akshay Kumar in Singh is Bling, but
she opted for Dilwale instead to work with SRK and Kajol,
opposite Varun Dhawan. Though the film got mixed response, it certainly raised
hype in the market with all the masala
elements that worked for her. She was also being considered for role opposite
Salman in Sultan however it didn’t
Richa Chadha : Richa Chadha has time and again proved that she is a powerhouse
of talent; be it her choice of films or the unconventional roles the actress
portrays on screen. Her performance is Masaan
which released last year was highly appreciated by critics making it one of
the most striking performances of 2015. Also, the actress was invited as a jury
member last year at the eminent Marrakech Film Festival. The actress, who is
well qualified, belongs to highly educated family. Her intelligence quotient is
quite obvious with the choices she makes in her career. After Chalk and Duster,
the actress will have three more diverse releases this year- Cabaret, Sarabjit, and Jiya aur Jiya.
Nimrat Kaur : A perfect example of beauty with brains, Nimrat Kaur, who
enthralled the audience with her natural acting in The Lunchbox, struck a chord in her recently released espionage
thriller, Airlift opposite Akshay
Kumar. The actress is certainly making it big in Bollywood by garnering praises
from critics, audience and industry people. Akshay Kumar, her co-star from Airlift, is also backing the actress by
going all gaga about her acting skills. The actress also represented India at
BAFTA 2015 and Cannes Film Festival in the past.
Taapsee Pannu : Taapsee Pannu, who has carved a niche in South films as
well as Bollywood is as clever as
gorgeous. After her debut in David
Dhawan’s Chashme Baddoor, it took
a while for the actress to make a choice, but her role in Baby made it clear as to why she waited so long to do her next Bollywood film. She was brilliant as the spy officer; her action
stunts fetched her whistles from the audience, and were highly appreciated.
She’ll be soon seen playing a refugee in Ghazi
based on the submarine PNS Ghazi which got sunk in a mysterious circumstance.
The actress has also bagged role alongside Big B in Shoojit Sircar’s next.
Patralekha : The Citylight
actress who was bombarded with offers after her critically acclaimed
performance in her debut film, didn’t pick any role until she found the one
that would interest her. The lasso is going for a stern
negative character in her next ‘Love Games’. She could have easily gone
for a girl-next-door character, but Patralekha made sure she doesn’t stereotype
herself. Well, we must say that’s a very smart move by the young actress.
