Aishwarya is one of, if not, the most well known Bollywood actresses. Aishwarya gained fame in 1999 when she started in Hum Dil De Chuk Sanam and continued to grow from there! PSST… her next film is Fanney Khan and the trailer was just released!
Shah Rukh Khan
Shah Rukh Khan is one of our personal favorites. As a boy, he lost his parents very young, building his career out of nothing and now he is the top paid Bollywood actor in the industry. We love a good underdog success story!
Deepika gained success in 2006 with her breakthrough role in the extremely successful Om Shanti Om, where she started opposite Shah Rukh Khan. After that, Deepika continue to grow and is now considered one of the leading actresses in Bollywood.
Yes, okay she’s dating Nick Jonas, and yes we are definitely feeling it, but don’t forget that Priyanka Chopra is a serious talent and powerhouse. Priyanka is one of the few Bollywood actresses who’s gone in and out of Bollywood and Hollywood. Priyanka’s break out role in Bollywood was Aitraaz, where she played the antagonist. She continued to rise and now is the leading lady on a long standing American TV Show, Quantico!
Talk about a heartthrob. We are definitely swooning over this Bollywood star. Having his big release in 2007 for Bachna Ae Haseeno. Ranbir went on to gain huge success and even dated Deepika Padukone for awhile and is now in a relationship with Alia Bhatt.
Last, but definitely not least, is Kajol! Kajol had her breakthrough role with one of our absolute favorite Bollywood movies of all time, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge where she starred opposite Shah Rukh Khan. Now she is married to the successful actor and director Ajay Devgn!
Now, now we know there are so many more, but these are some of our favorites! Check back each week too see what other Bollywood love we are spreading.
