1. Priyanka Chopra (34)
This young woman is a trailblazer! From winning the Miss World Crown, proving her mettle in Bollywood, singing with international artistes, and packing few punches in an American show plus, plus, plus starring in Baywatch! This girl has got guts, passion and glory – all this on her own!
2. Tabu (44)
She’s one of those women who combine unique beauty with pure raw talent – that’s a lethal combination right there! With 2 National Awards, 6 Filmfare Awards, and a Padma Shri, Tabu is one woman because of who your parents and relatives won’t have anything to counter-attack your point.

What can you say about this talented woman that hasn’t already been said? From The Lunchbox to Airlift, to Homeland – this lady carries herself gracefully and with a dignified air in all her roles! Hats off to her paving her own success path!
5. Sushmita Sen (40)
Sushmita is more than ‘just’ a Bollywood actress. She encompasses a variety of roles that she follows with intense fervor. Winning the Miss Universe title (the first Indian to do so) was only the start. Adopting Renee at the young age of 25, adopting Alisah few years later, immersing herself in child welfare and education of the girl child, Sushmita is an example of courage and strong will amidst the countless aunties harping on marriage – give them a dose of Sushmita’s story and watch them back off.
6. Kangana Ranaut (30)
She is a refreshing person in the tumultuous Bollywood industry. Her bold, frank, honest views and daredevil approach marks her as one of a kind. From Gangster, Fashion, Queen to Tanu Weds Manu, Kangana holds her own easily. With 3 National Awards and 4 Filmfare Awards, Kangana is a great epitome of a woman who believes in herself and who slays any naysayer in her way. Take that annoying neighbours!
7. Deepika Padukone (30)
Yeah fine, so what if she’s dating, the lissome lady pursues her career with fierce devotion. While many think that ‘Om Shaanti Om’ was her debut, in reality, it was the Kanadda film ‘Aishwarya’ that marked Deepika’s entry into movie-dom. This darling of the masses is soon to be seen in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage! How amazing is that!
