Hema Malini in Khushboo, Rekha in Musafir, Raveena Tandon in Shool, Juhi Chawla in 3 Deewarein, Kareena Kapoor in Dev and lately Lara Dutta in Billu, are some of the actresses who dared to remove all elements of vanity from their performances by appearing utterly makeup-less on camera, all to be supposedly in the ‘other’ league.

Ditto happened to Rangeela girl Urmila who after some very steamy performances in Rangeela and Daud was spotted without make up in a series of films right from Satya to Pinjar. She perhaps is the only actress who can wear a cotton saree and a mini skirt with same élan.

Bootylicious Bipasha Basu tried her no-make up look in Prakash Jha's Apharan. Since then she gave into many a luscious and meaty roles. Right from corporate to Omkara, she shone on the silver screen. Having made natural look 'in', with attending parties and social obligations without make-up, it was but apt for her to star in Rahul Dholakia's Lamha, where she plays a Kashmiri girl. She is also playing a widow in Sab Charitro Kalponik, her first Bengali movie, directed by Rituparno Ghosh.

 Cherubic Preity too tried salwar kameez in Heroes where she played a soldier’s widow. Having bid adieu to designer attire, she was also seen sans make-up in Mira Nairs's critically acclaimed Videsh/Heaven on Earth which amused audiences across the globe.

Just looking pretty and shaking a leg or two in skimpy clothes will soon be a thing of past for Katrina Kaif. Besides being Salman’s girl, she is proving her mettle in Prakash Jha’s next venture Rajniti where she allegedly plays Sonia Gandhi. That should not be very difficult. Given her heavy British accent, we are sure no body can question the capability to imitate Sonia Gandhi on silver screen.

And why only Kats and Minns, only recently, Priyanka Chopra gave an overwhelming performance in Kaminey, where she palyed the role of Sweetie. She has come across as a true Marathi Mulgi, and her acting capabilities definitely go beyond question. PC is ready to surprise everyone with her 12 roles in What's Your Rashee.
