  • Katrina Kaif, you are mad to think she is good as the actresses mentioned in the list. All she has is beauty and men fantasizing over her. But, a good list, forgot to mention, Nargis, Nutan and some others.

  • Try no being Biased with Ash…. She has got global head turn unlike any other actress even katrina Kaif. Evn Kaif’s shoot was stoped in some city in Eurp coz she is not a regstrd actress glblly. She was refered to be like Ash… she is the pride of Indian Entrtnmnt indstry, a globla face of Inda.. After Mckl Jaksn, Ash is only celeb know globaly from ages 6 – 60.

    • Yes that true Ash is not respected in India but she is Global Super Star… It is said that a diamond is found in mines and unless it unless see by a Jeweller who will raise it to its true place …. Ash is like that Diamond not recognised at home but VALUED & RESPECTED ABROAD MEDIA AND WORLD.

      She tops polls globally top searched person in world……………..only Asian Women in the top 25……………….. so where is Kareena ????? Piyanka Chopra ???????? Kartina ??????????? Kajol ????????????????

      Now speak user name “Kathi” No wonder she beats Jnfr Lopz and is complimented by Julia roberts

      None in history got spl invite from OSCARs Specal inivtatn but ASHWRIA RAI Got !!!!!!

      She rocks without her, your list is never valued… learn to appreciate her achievements dear……… see what Longiness and Loreal has to say….

      Dont see flop movies and dosnt earn anythng……………………..Other actors/actress do movies and earn but Ash earns more than 100 cores just doing ads she need not do movies ads…. she got 2 million pounds for Pink Panther……… shez the grtest star and living legends of our times even rekha told that she is a diva and hema malini told that she is true dream gal

  • katrina kaif is the best and so is kajol

    • dear payal acting dont concerns with lokks and face it is all about your expressions

  • the list is fine but where is hema malani

  • this list is bulshit including katrina. where are hema nutan and saira banu

  • Surprising list.. While some are qualified to be in it .. absence of Nargis, Meena Kumari, Nutan, Wahida Rehman, Shabana Azmi, Smita Patil, Asha Parekh is not understood. If Kat is in, why not Hema Malini who had equally good looks and comaratively better acting skills than Kat!!!

  • If you ask me here is the list of top 10 bollywood actress of all time both in looks and acting prowess

    1. Meena Kumari (1950′s)
    2. Madhubala (1950′s)
    3. Nargis (1950′s)
    4. Nutan (1950′s and 1960′s)

    5. Waheeda Rehman (1960′s)
    6. Viyajayantimala (1960′s) – Like Madhuri more known for her great dancing skills

    7. Sharmila Tagore, Rakhi, Shabana Azmi, Smita Patil (Acting 1970′s)

    8. Hema Malini, Zeenat Amman, Parveen Babi, Dimple Kapadia (Great Looks 1970′s) – You choose one of them, Helen for Dancing (1970′s)

    9. The one and only one Sridevi (Great Looks and Acting and Dancing 1980′s), Rekha also gave great performances with some movies like Khoobsurat, KBM etc (Acting and glamour 1980′s)

    10. Kajol esp for acting (1990′s) and Madhuri Dixit esp for Dancing (1990′s)

    Karishma Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai, Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Priety Zinta, Rani Mukherjee, Sushmita Sen, Priyanka chopra,Vidya Balan (2000′s) rule the roost.

    But they still cannot be compared to 1-10 actresses of all time as of now.

  • MADURI should be at the top
