Mashallah! These faces have been proving their mettle for more than a decade in the film industry. They have over time emerged as a sex symbols in their own way.

We are talking about Bollywood actresses who are ruling the industry not only with their talent and beauty but also their sensuality. Kareena Kapoor comes first in the mind, while making this list. She is currently making waves with her raunchy number Halkat Jawani. Be it Pooja of Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham,  Kaurwaki of Asoka or her portrayals in Chameli and Tashan, Bebo has upped the sensuality quotient in B-Town. She gave Malaikas and Mallikas of Bollywood a run for their money in Chammak Challo too.

Katrina Kaif is slowly but steadily riding the glamour ladder. Though she started out with a bold role in Boom, she turned into a sweet girl later with films like Namaste London and Singh is Kingg. Kat was formally anointed as a sex symbol with Sheila Ki Jawani (Tees Maar Khan). She had shown promise in Zara Zara Touch Me (Race). Then came Chikni Chameli and Katrina was at her best again. With the success of her film Ek Tha Tiger and the track Mashallah! topping the chartbusters, Katrina is on another high.


Who's the hottest of 'em all. Take a poll and tell us what your think:



Aishwarya Rai might be on a break from Bollywood post motherhood, but her previous achievements qualify her as a sex symbol. She broke her pretty doll image with Shabd, her eyes did the trick in Umrao Jaan and her Kajrare was an ultimate gamechanger. Her bold kissing sequence with Hrithik Roshan in Dhoom 3 and her bindaas performance in Chokher Bali helped her reach there.

And who can forget Vidya Balan who went 'dirty' for a film and still walked away with a National award. In fact she displayed her bold side in her debut film Parineeta. Her lovemaking sequences with Saif Ali Khan and Sanjay Dutt in the film were high on steamy quotient. Guru, Salaam-e-Ishq, Ishqiya further accentuated her bold image.

We have some other names too! Bipasha Basu's Jism is probably the Raaz of her success. The lady seduces in Raaz 3 like never before. The bongshell first tasted success with Raaz, opposite Dino Morea. The film is as much known for its horror quotient as its steamy scenes. The portrayal of Sonia Khanna in Jism established her as a sex symbol in the industry. Madhoshi, Omkara, Race, Bachna Ae Haseeno and Players are some of the other films that helped entrech her sensual image in Bollywood.

Priyanka Chopra's chemistry with Akshay Kumar was crackling to say the least in Andaaz. Her body language conveyed she would continue with her bold ways in her subsequent films. She dared to play a negative role of a seductress in Aitraaz. She looked tailor-made for the role. Her 'Fashion' sense got her not only a national award but also a siginificant place in showtown.
