There was an era when Bollywood actresses were depicted as an epitome of simplicity and grace. And then came the era, when the B-wood beauties were introduced in a completely different avatar of charming, outgoing and bubbly tomboys. These gorgeous heroines performed the role with élan and changed the outlook of the audiences.

Here are some unforgettable tomboyish roles of the silver screen.

7.    Katrina Kaif


No doubt, Katrina is the most sought after actress of the Bollywood. She broke her ‘sexy’ tag with her brilliant acting in New York, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, and Blue. In these movies, Kat played the role of a tomboy.

6.    Amrita Rao

Amrita Rao surprised the audiences with her whimsical appearance in Main Hoon Na. She put on curly hair, tethered T-shirts and ragged jeans in this movie. Her style quotient rose after the release of the film. 

5. Kangna Ranaut


Although Kangna made her acting debut with Gangster as a serious actress, but the movie Tanu Weds Manu featured her in a completely different look of a tomboy. Her curly and tousled hair, rebellious and outgoing behaviour, and attitude of not shying from smoke and alcohol portrayed her tom boyishness.

4. Preity Zinta


Preity beautifully played the roles of Priya Bakshi in Kya Kehna and Amby Malhotra in Salaam Namaste. With her outstanding performance in these movies, she proved that she is the ideal face for a tomboy character, in the tinsel town. Well, Preity is a tomboy in her real life too. 

3. Hema Malini


Seeta Aur Geeta is an all-time favourite movie for Dream Girl Hema Malini’s fans. In this movie, Hema played the role of identical twins. As Geeta, she superbly portrayed a feisty girl. The movie was a blockbuster hit and for her role in this film, the actress got wide accolades from the audiences.

2. Genelia D’Souza


Do you remember that spoiled brat- Aditi Mahant in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na? Her brawl with her on-screen younger brother and the way she fought with her friends portrayed her tomboy character very well. In this role, Genelia looked charming and secured the title of top tomboy.

1. Kajol


If I talk about the movie Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, the character that instantly clicks our mind is that of naughty and bubbly Anjali’. Her body language and accent was perfectly tomboyish. After this movie, Kajol became one of the most hunted tomboys of tinsel town. The girls got crazy for the similar haircut and clothes that Kajol had donned in the movie.
