Women’s Day is only hours away and we’d like to take every chance to celebrate all the fantastic Bollywood ladies who kick ass. So we’ve compiled five of the toughest characters in recent history.  Read on.

Urmila Matondkar in Ek Haseena Thi

Urmila plays a spurned lover out for revenge in this gritty thriller that got kudos for the actress along with Saif Ali Khan as the suave rogue who gets more than he bargained for.


Priyanka Chopra in 7 Khoon Maaf

PC gets away with the highest kill count on this list with Vishal Bhardwaj’s film about a woman who is unlucky in love, seven times!


Rekha in Khoon Bhari Maang

The big daddy… err mommy of badass women, this is considered one of Rekha’s most iconic roles and one of the best  revenge flicks of the 80s. ‘See you later, Alligator’ had a whole new spin!

Rani Mukerji in Mardaani           

Rani was back in a big way with this hard hitting drama about a tough female cop who takes a child trafficking ring head on.


Anushka Sharma in NH10

Anushka’s turn as a  big city girl who is forced to face her worse fears was one of the highlights of 2015. Her performance is as brutal as it is convincing.
