There is no denying that Bollywood is brimming with great actors. But it’s how they’re handled that counts. According to several examples, Bollywood should place a greater priority on casting brilliant female actresses. They are entitled to more screen time and should not be pushed to the sidelines of a film. Utilize their acting experience in original storylines and present them with well-developed characters.
Here are some examples of excellent Bollywood actresses who are deserving of greater recognition:
1. Tabu (Golmaal Again)
She did a wonderful performance in the movie Golmaal Again, despite the fact that her role was poorly written. Even though it was impossible, she made better use of her abilities to outshine the character. It’s not fair to dismiss her abilities. Tabu is an excellent actor who can play any role.
2. Rajshri Deshpande (The Sky is Pink)
In the film The Sky Is Pink, the sky is pink. Rajshri had a minor role (Anita Tandon) and was given very little screen time. Her performances in films such as S Durga, Angry Indian Goddesses, and Sacred Games wowed audiences. Even if it was supposed to be a cameo, it should be done with more amazing craftsmanship concepts.
3. Sheeba Chaddha (Shakuntala Devi)
Shakuntala Devi doesn’t pay much attention to Sheeba Chaddha, a superb actress. Filmmakers don’t seem to give her much in the way of conversation or screen time. She is deserving of more, particularly in mainstream films.
The best part about her is that she can perform without using more than a single cadre. Her work has a long-lasting and incredible impact on people.
4. Supriya Pathak (The Big Bull)
Supriya Pathak is one of Bollywood’s most gifted actresses, with a strong desire to work in the profession. It makes no difference which character she plays; she shines in all of them. Supriya became well-known for her portrayal of Hansa in Kichidi. She is also known for her appearance in the film Ram-Leela and a notable performance in the film Love per Square Foot.
However, in the film The Big Bull, she appears in only three sequences with little sentences, which is not fair. She is more than deserving of greater screen time.
5. Shefali Shah (Mohabbatein)
Shefali Shah is a superb actress who uses her expressions to convey a lot of information. It is simple to relate with the persona she portrays. Despite this, she has always been overlooked, and there is no disputing that she needs more screen time.
6. Seema Pahwa (Suraj Pe Mangal Bhaari)
Bareilly Ki Barfi and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan are two of Seema Pahwa’s best films. In the Bollywood industry, she provided a magnificent example and persona of “DESI MOM.” Her role also had a revitalising and upbeat energy, which was well received by the audience.
It doesn’t matter how brilliant an actress you are, if you are labelled, your talent is wasted, as Seema in Suraj Pe Mangal Bhaari discovered. She only had a little role, but the audience was eager to see more of her.
7. Tisca Chopra (Good Newwz)
Despite the fact that Tisca is a gifted actor, she was given no dialogue or screen time in the film Good Newwz. Such blunders in casting are now commonplace.
8. Ayesha Raza and Ashwini Kalsekar (Laxmii)
The truth is that most of the talented performers – the star-cast – were wasted in Laxmii. It’s awful how Bollywood treated Ayesha Raza and Ashwini Kaleskar. The talent of someone who can nail every part they are cast in is wasted.
9. Tillotama Shome (Hindi Medium and Angrezi Medium)
With such a strong plotline, a mainstream film fails to build a solid character for Tillotama Shome. Although she performed a good job in some of the best films, such as her debut feature Monsoon Wedding, Qissa, and Sir, she did a better job in others.
