Bollywood actresses who defy age

Mumbai: They say it’s an industry dominated by men where the Khans rule the roost. But here, we have listed out five actresses, who have not just defied age, but given stiff competition to their male counterparts and perhaps even outshined them with their performances.

Here are those stunning divas of Hindi cinema who have smitten moviegoers with their beauty and have impressed many with jaw-dropping performances:


Rekha in 'Umrao Jaan'.

At 61, Rekha, the Umrao Jaan of Hindi Cinema still looks gorgeous. She is indeed the evergreen beauty who will never cease to leave her admirers in awe. Rekha makes men go week in the knees even today. Sadly, there is dearth of good roles that can do justice to her personality and talent.

Madhuri Dixit:

Madhuri in 'Devdas'.

The dancing diva of Bollywood, Madhuri rocked the silverscreen as she matched steps with a much younger Ranbir Kapoor in a special song from ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’. She can carry almost any kind of role in style. She is just a couple of years short of 50.


Tabu in 'Haider'.

We saw Tabu essay the role of Shahid Kapoor’s mother in ‘Haider’. But the lady was absolutely brilliant in the film. She belongs to the league of actresses who can make the likes of Irrfan Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui run for their money! Tabu rocks even at 44!


Kajol in 'My Name Is Khan'.

Kajol looks prettier than before. She set the silversreen on fire with her too-hot-handle chemistry with Shah Rukh Khan in ‘Dilwale’. None can do what Kajol, a mother of two can – look for irresistibly cute at 41!

Aishwarya Rai

After a hiatus of five years Aishwarya Rai Bachchan returned to the silverscreen last year with Jazbaa. The film may not have been a success commercially, but Aishwarya’s performance was very much appreciated. She will soon be seen opposite Ranbir Kapoor in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. She is 42 and looks gorgeous.

Vidya Balan
