From Shefali Shah to Neena Gupta – actresses who are finally getting their due

Indian film industry is going through a change. There is a new crop of filmmakers who are working with the actors of their choice and as a result, man actresses are getting work now.

Here are some of the great actresses who are finally getting their due.

Shefali Shah

Shefali Shah is a wonderful actress that started her career in the 90s. She rose to fame with Satya but did not get roles according to her caliber at that point of time. Since then, her career graph fell and it was the emergence of new age filmmakers who realized her potential and gave her the much needed break she wanted. Zoya Akhtar gave her a chance to play a wife and a mother and she nailed the role to perfection. It made other filmmakers notice her potential. Since then, she has worked in many short films and big movies. She is now a bankable actress and many aspiring actors look up to her.

Neena Gupta

Neena Gupta is a highly talented actress but she got famous for all the wrong reasons. People and media took more interest in her private life than her acting prowess. As a result, Neena Gupta only got few small roles here and there but did not get a chance to showcase her incredible acting abilities. It was only after shetweeted that she is an actress who wants work, people noticed her. Neena Gupta rose to fame with her mind blowing acting in the movie, Badhaai Ho and she is working actively in the film industry now.  It is good to see her finally getting the roles that suit her and she is showing the world what an old woman can do with the right chances and courage.


If there is an actress who has influenced many in the last few years with her exceptional acting abilities, it is SheebaChaddha. The UP born actress is a chameleon and she gets into the skin of a character with ease. She has done every role to the perfection and she has the sheer ability to bring charisma in every role. Her career too is full of struggles and despite doing some great roles in the movies like Talaash, her work went unnoticed. She was not taken seriously until she played the role of bua in Sharat’s Dum LagaKeHaisha. Since then, Sheeba has not looked back and the actress has blessed us with many great characters. She can bring life to a simple scene just by being in it.
