Women's Day Special: 10 women-oriented movies that became a hit without a hero

By Saheli Maity | March 8th, 2019

From playing glam dolls, to be damsels in distress, women have come a long way in our movies. Films like NH10, Manikarnika and Mardaani have proved us that the women in Bollywood have progressed and that they don’t need to be rescued by heroes anymore. The actresses have clearly stepped a notch higher as they are not an 'abala naari' anymore but a naari who is sab pe bhaari.

 

Today, as the world is celebrating International Women's Day, we're looking at the movies where the lead actresses had a meaty role! These movies not only resonate with the audiences but also became a hit at the box-office
