It is often believed that a Bollywood actress’ main job is to wear layers of makeup and beautify the screen with her exquisiteness and glamour. However, time and again our B-town girls have taken up challenging roles and proven that being a Bollywood actress is more than just looking glamourous on the screen, and that beauty is not only about applying a lot of makeup. Here are some of the dazzling B-town divas who went de-glam for their roles and yet looked absolutely ethereal on the screen.
Take a look…
- Kareena Kapoor Khan
Kareena Kapoor Khan undoubtedly is one of the most glamorous actresses in Bollywood. However, she is also among the few leading ladies who have dared to go sans make-up on camera more than once and still has looked absolutely beautiful. Kareena Kapoor has sported the de-glam look in Dev, Jab We Met and Omkara.
- Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
The world’s most beautiful lady too has dropped her glamorous avatar onscreen a couple of times and has mesmerized us with her natural beauty. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan not only left an impression with her acting prowess in films like Raincoat and Sarabjit but also charmed us with her ethereal no makeup looks in both the films.
- Alia Bhatt
Pretty Alia Bhatt is known to be a fashionista on-screen and off-screen but the talented actress dared to go de-glam not once but twice in her career. Alia’s de-glamourous role in Udta Punjab was indeed remarkable. She played a Bihari girl in the film and totally stole the show with her powerful performance and non-fancy look. Alia had even successfully pulled off the de-glam look earlier for Highway
- Kiara Advani
The lovely lass, who recently knocked us all completely with her ‘first class’ moves in Kalank, where she had a special appearance, has recently become the talk of the town for her de-glam avatar in the upcoming film Kabir Singh. The versatile actress, who wowed us with her unabashed performance in Lust Stories, is now playing Preeti in the Hindi remake of the Telugu hit film, Arjun Reddy, and Kiara has stunned us once again and how. Kiara is looking absolutely ravishing in the promos of the film. She has nailed her no-makeup simple salwar-kameez look with confidence and is looking effortlessly beautiful.
- Shraddha Kapoor
The beautiful Shraddha Kapoor may have had a small part in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider, but the talented lass did manage to captivate us with her minimalistic no make-up look and subtle performance.
