Size doesn’t matter. Not sure what you’re thinking, but we’re referring to these amazing actresses who, despite their limited screen time, stole the limelight at the movies. Even though the story didn’t revolve around them, they managed to hold the audience’s attention onto their characters and find a special corner in their hearts.
Kangana Ranaut, Fashion
Kangana Ranaut was a surprise package in Fashion as supermodel Shonali Gujral who goes from riches to rags when she lets success get to her head. Her portrayal of the dark side of the glamour world was so raw and real, it won her the National Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Divya Dutta, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag
If Farhan Akhar was the heart of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Divya Dutta was its soul. She took the brother-sister bond to a whole new level with her realistic expression of happiness and pride for the ace athlete’s achievements. Her emotional acting, especially in the scene where Singh returns her earrings, melts your heart.
Kalki Koechlin, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
Who doesn’t remember Natasha from Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara? Kalki Koechlin absolutely nailed the possessive girlfriend role with this one. As annoyed as the Three Musketeers were by her presence at their bachelors trip, let’s agree the film wouldn’t be as fun without her!
Richa Chadha, Fukrey
Richa Chadha hit it out of the park with her portrayal of the badass Bholi Punjaban in Fukrey, whose sharp tongue and stinging sarcasm were permanent keeps in her arsenal. She single-handedly made the four male protagonists dance to her tunes - not to forget Panditji, who was equally wary of her.
Shefali Shah, Dil Dhadakne Do
Despite being set against the opulent backdrop of a cruise ship, Dil Dhadakne Do had deep wells of emotion thanks to performances like Shefali Shah, who aptly showcased the hidden fears, hypocrisies and humanity of homemakers as Neelam Mehra. The scene where she stuffs her face with chocolate when she’s hurt breaks your heart.
