Bollywood has graced us with a wide array of films in 2016. A few of them absolutely won our hearts, while a few others we could have done without. Over the years, Bollywood has evolved with the way women are portrayed in films, well, at least we would like to think so. While we still have films that have women being stalked under the pretext of romance and being serenaded in the Alps, we also have actresses who are not afraid to throw a punch or two. This year, especially, we saw a rise in the number of films that saw mainstream actresses taking up action-based roles.
We have listed down a few.
In Jai Gangaajal, we saw the lovely Priyanka Chopra take on a dabangg role. She played a hardcore lady cop and trashing people with a laathi in a typical Indian cop style.
Shraddha Kapoor has played the Bollywood sweetheart in almost all her films but with Baaghi, she played rebel throwing professional punches and cracking several bones.
The biggest film of 2016, in Sultan, we saw Anushka Sharma play the role of a professional wrestler and topple people double her size.
Sonakshi Sinha turned into an action hero in Akira, not only playing the main lead but also putting Bollywood's male actors to shame with her action sequences.
In Force 2, we again saw Sonakshi Sinha play a RAW agent. Bullets zipping, cars racing – she did it all.
