Kareena is indeed the number one actress by miles when it comes to popularity. On the other hand Priyanka wins hands down when it comes to some of the tough roles that she has in her kitty currently. Katrina falls in between as she raised the glamour quotient (TEES MAAR KHAN) while also demonstrating histrionics (RAAJNEETI) last year. None of them can afford to relax though, what with Anushka and Sonakshi making their presence felt loud and clear", says an industry observer.more 05 image after the break...
"Of course the BIG 3 (Kareena, Priyanka, Katrina) have been around for 8-10 years and between them have more than 50% of the biggest films on floors", continues the observer, "However when it comes to it's leading ladies, industry is constantly looking for fresh faces every now and then. None of them can afford to be complacent and would have to be on their toes."
He has his reasons to say that. Anushka has shown gradual progress from RAB NE BANA DI JODI days and showed once again with BAND BAAJA BAARAAT that she is a terrific actress. Even in PATIALA HOUSE, which was basically a Rishi Kapoor-Akshay Kumar film, she shone in each of her scenes. No wonder, she has just bagged the latest Yash Raj Films project LADIES V/S RICKY BEHL even though her three film contract with the production house has expired. On the other hand Sonakshi now has confirmed assignments with Akshay Kumar (JOKER) and Saif Ali Khan (RACE 2).
However now with Anushka Sharma and Sonakshi Sinha seeing a rise in their fortunes and signing multiple films, the battle seems to be intensifying.
With Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Vidya Balan, Deepika Padukone, Kangna Ranaut and Sonam Kapoor having their own place under the sun, this is one Top-10 list of actresses worth compiling!
Till date, the battle was between was primarily between Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra when it came to occupying that number one slot.
