Believe me it’s not an easy task to keep thinking for new ideas. But I love to write and whatever I write it’s just what I speak my mind. This year, Hindi cinema completes a century; 100 years of entertaining, A long journey from Satyavaadi Raja Harish Chandra to Dirty Picture. So today what I thought being a woman why not talk about those women specially the B town beauties, the ladies who are the integral part of it. As I said in my earlier write up we Indians are very much fond of cinemas we also love to keep track about the stars and so Bollywood beauties are no exception.
A thing of beauty is a joy for ever: Its loveliness increases; it will never Pass into nothingness; but still will keep A bower quiet for us, and a sleep Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing. -JOHN KEATS
Great poets, painters have always praised the Beauty of women in their own ways. What is beauty? “Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”. It is an abstract noun that’s very hard to define. Beauty, like honour, courage, creativity and many of the other things we value most. A woman can be vulnerable at the inside, as sweet and mild-mannered at once and as fierce as the tiger at the other. Outside she’s a portrait of splendid lavishness and breathtaking splendor. This is what makes the fairer sex beautiful, inside out.
Our Hindi film industry can vouch for that for sure. The screens of Bollywood is always blessed with breathtakingly gorgeous and stunningly timeless beauties for more than a hundred years And it’s not just the amount of eye-candy Bollywood offers, but also the sheer diversity of each beauty.
Let’s take a look about some of these gorgeous ladies. Who is the “Most Beautiful” out of all these stunners is a daunting job. Out of the hundreds of beautiful Bollywood actresses, one name has been consistently dubbed as the “Most Beautiful Actress of All Time”. That is Madhubala. She’s perfect in every sense, so for me she really is the most beautiful. Madhubala according to scores of people had oxygenating beauty, and indeed according to various list she’s the most beautiful………….ever!!!!!

Well I missed a lot of names here .There are many more leading ladies of Hindi films; the list is long and quite impossible to write down. But each and every have enriched Hindi films with their looks, glamour and talent. The foundations of the Hindi film industry were laid by these gutsy women. They worked shoulder to shoulder with their leading men, obeyed their directors and at a time when society looked down on actresses, lead very dignified lives. They were the legendary heroines of the Hindi film industry. There is a long way to go and many more iconic heroines to acknowledge. Let me end by saying what Shah Rukh Khan says, ‘Picture abhi baki hai...’ But before ending surely I would love to know who you think the most beautiful is?
