The leading ladies of Bollywood have given us some memorable films with heartfelt performances where they have adapted the skin of the characters to the T. Essaying real life achievers is never easy and to play someone else who has gone through a lot and have been over-performers in their fields. Let’s take a look at a few of these iconic films where actresses played real-life characters and bought them to life on this Women’s Day…


Priyanka Chopra As Mary Kom : An inspiring story of a six-time World Champion and an Olympic medal winner Mary Kom, the film was a biopic with the same name where we saw the acting-prowess of the actress who is on her global-domination spree, Priyanka Chopra killing it with her sturdy avatar and powerful act. She was extremely believable as the Manipuri boxer and made sure she punches a strong blow among the critics with her performance!



Alia Bhatt In Raazi : Based on the heroic adventures of the spy Sehmat who went all the way to Pakistan as an undercover agent, Raazi really worked very well in showcasing the story of a girl who had to go through a lot to bring glory to her nation. Fragile yet strong, effected yet focused, contained yet emotional is what Sehmat is! As the movie progresses, you will be smitten by Sehmat’s character and Alia Bhatt‘s portrayal which truly makes her special as an actor. Raazi is one of the most powerful, engaging and humane films in recent times unarguably which celebrated women-power.


Sonam Kapoor In Neerja : Another film which celebrated the selflessness of a woman, Sonam Kapoor played the character of Neerja Bhanot in Neerja, an air hostess who died while helping to try and save 359 out of 379 passengers and crew on board. The plot of the film portrays the hijacking of Pan Am Flight 73 in Karachi. Sonam did a superb job as Neerja and there was not a single person who wasn’t proud of the young air hostess who saved lives of strangers but sacrificed her won. Inspiring!


Kangana Ranaut In Manikarnika : Essaying the role of the iconic Rani Laxmi Bai, the Queen of Jhansi, Kangana Ranaut looked every bit of the warrior queen in every frame of the film. The brave-heart, Rani Laxmi Bai who fought for the Independence of India was one of the woman freedom fighters who fought with her son tied to her back after her husband was killed by the Britishers. In the film, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, Kangana really made us remember the forgotten hero of our country and it was indeed one bravura of an act!

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan In Sarbjit : The 2016 biopic-drama, Sarbjit was a film which had Aishwarya Rai Bachchan play the role of Daljit Kaur, sister of Randeep Hooda who portrayed the title role Sarabjit Singh, an Indian man who was sentenced to death by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in 1991 and who consequently spent 22 years in prison for alleged terrorism and spying. The emotional journey of a sister who was determined to get justice for her brother was a sight to see and we loved Aish come back to prove her worth as an actor with full dedication. The film was a success and we were truly moved.
