Just as Bollywood seems a granted choice for beauty pageant winners, politics becomes a natural regression for glamorous female actors. In the past actors like Jaya Bhaduri, Jaya Prada, Hema, Jaya Lalitha, Shabana Azmi and Nafisa Ali have proven that beauty does come with brains. The fresher league of women like Katrina Kaif, Bipasha Basu and Kareena Kapoor have also taken up to netagiri. No it is not about their campaigning for different parties but them playing powerful roles in their movies.
Kareena Kapoor - Dhruv
After crooning Marjaani in Billu and creating waves about sporting a bikini and saying yes to skin show in Kambakht Ishq, Bebo will be seen playing a politician in Sudhir Mishra’s Dhruv. The movies also stars Farhan Akhtar and Chitrangda Singh. Kareena will not only share a crackling chemistry with Farhan Akhtar in the film but also give this glamorous actress a little tuning down. Her role will be sans any make up and the director feels this movie will take her to another level.
Chitrangda Singh – Dhruv
Another actress who will get a make over will be Chitrangda Singh, who'll be the femme fatale of politics and underworld in Dhruv. Chitrangada is expected to play a very seductive and provocative role of a power broker in politics.
Bipasha Basu – Lamha
Shaking her booty and dancing to Lucky Boy from Bachna Ae Haseeno and playing the glamorous DJ in Aa Dekhen Zara, Bipasha is all set to play a hard core Kashmiri leader named Asiya in Lamha directed by Rahul Dholakia. The film also stars Sanjay Dutt – a real life politician and will present Bipasha is a never before avatar. Bipasha's role is said to have been portrayed on Asiya Andrabi, the chief of the Dukhtaran-e-Millat outfit, a seapratist group in Kashmir.
Katrina Kaif – Rajneeti
The drop dead gorgeous Katrina is all set to frop her sexy image and go de glam for her role in Prakash Jha's Rajneeti. Industry insiders are of the opinion that Katrina’s role is build around the political career of Sonia Gandhi. Katrina, took hindi classes for this role. She seems wuite perfect for the role though, the heavy English accent will resemble closely with Sonia.
Apart from these, Sushmita Sen too is playing Benazir Bhutto in the film of same title. Remember Manish Koirala, that Nepali beauty is also gearing up to play the role of Indira Gandhi in a much delayed film titled, Indira Gandhi-A Tryst With Destiny.
