10 Bollywood Actresses Who Changed The Face of Indian Cinema

There was a time when Bollywood Actresses were considered a second fiddle to the protagonist and were typecasted for being the “Heroine” of the film. But this was not going to last, as there were times when the actresses stole the thunder from the actors, which introduced the possibility of them portraying a character-driven role, instead of being only a second fiddle. Bollywood Actresses have always proved naysayers wrong with their terrific performances.
