Top 10 Bollywood Actresses of 2009

No actresses in Bollywood can hold their position tight for a long time. Every year their status reshuffles with the introduction of new faces or with the debacle of their film. Like any other year, 2009 has also seen few sensational faces of the south that tried their hand in Bollywood and sparked bright.

Along with sparking faces like Genelia D'Souza and Asin, some old stars also became successful not only to hold their respective position but enhanced their place. To name a few actresses falling in this category are Priyanka Chopra, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif and Bipasha Basu.

In the mid of the year, we bring to you the top 10 Bollywood actresses of 2009. Their position has been decided based on their films and popularity.

10. Genelia D'Souza: Though Genelia ventured into Bollywood with ‘Masti’ starring ‘good friend’ Riteish Deshmukh, she came into notice with ‘Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na’ opposite Imran Khan. She was hugely like and widely appreciated for her performance. She is much talked about for her Hindi accent and bubbly attitude. Next she will be seen in films like ‘Life Partner’, ‘Hook Ya Crook’, ‘Yahoo’ and ‘7 days in Paris’. She is also making her mark in ads.


 Asin : This mallu beauty has many a hits to her name in the South, but Bollywood is relatively new to her. After her grand debut in the much over hyped Ghajini, she is doing quite a lot of projects and has also done some ads. She is also the recipient of many awards for her superb performance in ‘Ghajini’. Asin has quite a few interesting projects in her kitty besides London Dreams starring Salman Khan and Ajay Devgan.



Konkona Sen Sharma : Konkana Sen Sharma has got a huge talent in herself. She is known for playing variety role with full perfection. She is a power packed performer but needs to get things in the right order. Last seen in Luck By Chance, she left a strong impact on the viewer by her role in Life In A Metro, Omkara. Winner of the National award for Best actress for her terrific performace in Mr and Mrs Iyer, next Konkana will be seen in Right Ya Wrong and Wake Up Sid.



Lara Dutta : This babe has established herself well in the comedy genre, but her off screen affairs make more news than her on-screen performances. Billu saw her gain some lost ground but her roles need to be more groundbreaking than her romantic choices. Next she will be seen in ‘Blue’ and ‘Banda Yeh Bindaas Hai. Lara never received huge credit for her act apart from Billu but she was never away from the limelight.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan: She was at one point of time the number one actress of Bollywood but stepped down after getting into the new role of wife but Ash never fails to deliver her best. Last year, she received huge accolades and awards for playing the gorgeous princess in Jodhaa Akbar. Not only Bollywood but Hollywood also crave for Ash in spite of carrying the tag of a married woman. she has few promising projects lined up for release like Raavan and Endhiran and she is hopeful to revive her position soon.

 Bipasha Basu: In action and thriller, Bipasha Basu excels. With every film, Bipasha has shown immense growth in her performance. She has received huge applaud for her performance in Abbas-Mustan’s Race. Last seen in Aa Dekhen Zara, Bips has films like Lamhaa and Pankh in her kitty.

 Katrina Kaif: This NRI girl has delivered continuous hits (though with the same co star). Said to have been surviving in the film industry due to Salman Khan, Katrina with her hard work and dedication shut the mouth of the gossipmongers and delivered one after another hit.  New York is a new landmark for her, with people applauding her performance, and not her looks. She has actually given expressions and cried convincingly in the movie. She is one of the most desired actresses of Bollywood.

3. Kareena Kapoor

: She too has had her share of disasters, but it is through mistakes that she has learnt to choose wisely. Today Kareena Kapoor is counted among the topmost actresses of Bollywood. Not only films but in the field of endorsements also she is the number one choice. She has back to back several hits and conquered the film industry with her style, size zero and above all with her performance.

Deepika Padukone : She is the hottest actress in town currently. After her grand success of Om Shanti Om, she did deliver duds like Bachna Ae Haseeno. She was little disheartened with the debacle of Chandni Chowk to China but she accepted failure sportingly and stood up again. Currently, she is looking forward to Love Aaj Kal with Saif Ali Khan.

Priyanka Chopra : Right at the top of the mountain is the current reigning actress of tinsel town, Priyanka Chopra. After delivering back to back hits like Dostana and Fashion, she has firmly cemented her beautiful self at the top. She is also awarded with the best actress award for her performance in Fashion. She faced many criticism for her acting but the sexy lady has proved everyone wrong by performing exceptionally well in some of her past films.
