Underrated Bollywood Actresses Who Deserve More Limelight,Mango Bollywood,Bollywood Celebs Latest News,Bollywood Movie Updates,Underrated Bollywood Actresses,Actors who deserve more limelight,most underrated actresses in bollywood

For many years, Bollywood was about superstars and their kids.  It is just recently we started appreciating real talent. There are many actresses in Bollywood who, despite being supremely talented, lack recognition.  Here is a list of a few such actresses who we think deserve more limelight.

 

1) Radhika Apte

Radhika Apte is arguably one of the most versatile actresses in B-town.  Her journey in the film industry began with the film Vaah! Life Ho To Aisi and ever since, she worked in several films and experimented with various genres.  With films like Shor In The City, Phobia, Pad Man and Andhadhun, which were extremely different from each other, she proved her versatility as an actor.  Her work in several regional films like Kabali and Vetri Selvan is also praiseworthy.  Radhika Apte also conquered the digital world with her commendable acting in the short film Ahalya and web series Lust Stories.  Radhika Apte definitely deserves more appreciation.  

 

2) Bhumi Pednekar

Bhumi Pednakar started her journey in films by working as an assistant director at Yash Raj Films for six years.  Her debut as an actress, however, was with the film Dum Laga Ke Haisha, opposite Ayushmann Khurana.

Her portrayal of the overweight wife was topnotch in this film.  Her acting brilliance was, however, proved with films like Shubh Mangal Savdhaan and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.  For the latter, she also won the Dadasaheb Phalke Film Foundation Award for the Best Actress.  Despite being such a talented actress, Bhumi Pednekar still lacks widespread recognition.

 

3) Taapsee Pannu

Time and again, Taapsee Pannu proved to the world how brilliant she is as an actress.  Her work in films like Pink, Badla, Mulk and Manmarziyaan is quite commendable.  While the actress is being recognised by the audience for her acting capabilities in the recent times, award shows like Filmfare and IIFA are yet to recognize her brilliance.  Considering the share of fame and limelight bestowed on star kids of this era, it is quite an injustice to this supremely talented actress.

 

4) Richa Chadda

Richa Chadda is yet another talented actress who came to be known with films like Gangs of Wasseypur, Fukrey and Goliyon ki Raasleela: Ram-Leela.

While Chadda received a lot of critical acclaim for her work in Fukrey and Gangs of Wasseypur, the mainstream audience are yet to recognize her.

Despite delivering such great work, she still has not been able to bag any big budget films.

 

5) Swara Bhaskar

Swara Bhaskar is known for her portrayal of important characters in Tanu Weds Manu, Raanjhanaa and Veere Di Wedding.  Her portrayal of a single mother in the Ashwini Iyer Tiwari directorial, Nil Battey Sannata, received widespread critical acclaim and she walked home with the Star Screen Award for Best Actor (Critics.) This actress has a different energy of her own, but failed to gain the attention of mainstream media and audience. We think she definitely deserves better.

 

In Bollywood, there is a swarm of actors who play supporting roles and even protagonists in some films and yet go unnoticed majorly because they do not have a famous surname.  In the coming times, we only hope these actors get the appreciation they deserve.

 

Comment below and let us know which one of these actors is your favourite.

Jaipur Literature Festival is an annual literary festival which takes place in Jaipur.  It is said to be the world’s largest free literary festival. Every year, eminent personalities attend the festival to speak about current affairs and political trends.

Actress Dia Mirza attended the event this year and was speaking about climate change.  However, the actress broke down into tears in the middle of her speech. Upon being asked the reason for the tears, Dia Mirza said she was affected by the tragic demise of basketball legend Kobe Bryant, who passed away in a helicopter crash.

The actress delivered a message about the importance of being empathetic and said, “Don’t hold back from being an empath. Don’t be afraid of shedding your tears. Feel it, feel the full extent of everything. It’s good. It gives us strength. It does. And this is not a performance.”  

When offered a tissue to wipe her tears, the actress refused by saying, “I don’t need paper.”  This particular statement attracted trolls on Twitter, which compared her to a desi version of Greta Thunberg and pointed at how the actress did not mind attending the event in a petrol vehicle but refused tissues.

 

This edition of Jaipur Literature Festival had Faye D’Souza, Javed Akhtar, Lisa Ray and Manish Malhotra, to name a few, as speakers.
