- Vidya Balan
When it comes to films, Vidya Balan cannot go wrong. The actress first acted in the popular television show Hum Paanch playing a studious nerd. She signed her first Malayalm film in 2000 called Chakram opposite Mohanlal and subsequently was signed on for twelve other films. However, due to production difficulties the film did not pan out.
She made her Bollywood debut with Parineeta, which garnered her critical acclaim and a Filmfare award for best actress debut. The following years proved a bit difficult for her but she came back with movies like Paa, Ishqiya, The Dirty Picture, and Kahaani. This led to her winning the Filmfare best actress award three times in a row.
Her bold film choices have reaped benefits beyond anyone’s imagination. She has established herself as an actress of substance who can spark life to any role.
