With a recover of a initial  look of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani, apart from Ranveer Singh’s Maratha soldier look, we also got a glance of Deepika Padukone as a soldier black Mastani. Sporting what looks somewhat like a helmet, and aiming during arrow, Deepika looks each bit a warrior.

Meanwhile, there’s a outrageous hum around this year’s biggest epic tale film Baahubali. The cinema of a masculine leads are splashed all over a posters of a film. There’s good seductiveness in Prabhas and Rana, each fact of their work out sessions and diet have been probed by a media.


Aishwarya Rai in Jodha Akbar and Deepika Padukone in Bajirao Mastani.

But there is tighten to immaterial information about a women in Baahubali. All we’ve listened is that Tamannah Bhatia plays Prabhas’ adore interest, though really few know about Sivagami, a black of the royal family of Maheshmathi, and a mom figure to Prabhas and Rana. If we haven’t seen a film yet, watch out for her character, it’s flattering badass.

So Bajirao Mastani sent us digging for instances of women personification warriors and suchlike in Hindi dress dramas.

Sivagami (played by Telegu singer Ramya Krishnan) – Baahubali  (2015)

In a initial few scenes of a film, Sivagami — who raises Baahubali (Prabhas) and Ballala Deva (Rana) together as children — kills all a courtiers who conflict her. It’s a flattering greatly aroused scene, where we get a glance of a Queen’s perfect power. After all, she lifted dual of a many beast contenders to be a King. SS Rajamouli himself certified in this DNA news that, “Never before have we dealt with a impression so heated and an actor so capable.”

Jodhaa Bai (played by Aishwarya Rai) – Jodhaa Akbar (2008)

In Ashutosh Gowarikar’s film, Emperor Akbar’s mother Jodhaa, is shown to be a learned warrior. After all, who can forget a sword-fighting stage between Hrithik Roshan personification Akbar and Aishwarya Rai personification a feisty Rajput princess Jodhaa?

Rani Lakshmibai (played by late singer Mehtab) – Jhansi ki Rani (1953)

Not many from from a era knows of this 1953 film. Set in a 19th century conflicting a backdrop of a 1857 Sepoy Mutiny, a film revolves aroud Rani Lakshmibai, famous as a initial Indian lady to lead an army conflicting a British. The film was destined by Sohrab Modi and starred Mehtab as a Lakshmibai. According to reports, a film didn’t do good during all during a box office. 

However, Mehtab is seen in a film personification a soldier with good finesse. In this one scene, she is seen enchanting in a sword quarrel with her opponents , while she rides a horse.

Also, Rani Lakshmibai is set to get another shot during a Bollywood box office.  According to this HT report, Ketan Mehta’s subsequent will star Kangana Ranaut during a fiesty queen, and Hugh Grant could also be starring conflicting her.

Razia Sultan (played by Hema Malini) – Razia Sultan (1983)

Who wouldn’t adore to see Hema Malini play a extreme womanlike Sultan of Delhi? However in this Kamal Amrohi film, a categorical thesis is a Razia’s purported adore event with Yakut Jamaluddin (played by Dharmendra). Now, we know Hema Malini and Dharmendra were a speak of a city behind then, though it wouldn’t have harm to try Razia Sultan, a soldier in some-more detail, right? But a film doesn’t defect completely. In a final few scenes, Hema Malini as Razia Sultan fights is seen in soldier mode. But we would have really desired to see more

Sonia a bodyguard (played by Priyanka Chopra) – Drona (2008)

Drona was all about Abhishek Bachchan and it was a flattering bad film. Bachchan, as Drona was a disaster. However, Priyanka Chopra, who played Drona’s bodyguard Sonia, stood out in some frames. Though her impression was as badly created as a rest of a film, it was provide to watch Chopra get out of a standard Bollywood heroine mode and play a impression with some-more sass.
