“Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world” - Hillary Rodham Clinton

Women are strong, bold and are changing the set notions of the society. They are now breaking the stereotypes and are challenging all the norms at every step. Today is International Women’s Day and it’s celebrated across the world with much fanfare every year. Our leading actresses are no less as they pick up films that speak about the grandeur of the women we had in our history. Bollywood has given tribute to the powerful ladies such as Rani Laxmibai, Mary Kom and more. On International Women’s Day, we are suggesting you some biopics made on the powerful women of our country. 

Raazi 

Raazi  is based on Harinder Sikka’s novel Calling Sehmat, which is a story of a spy who against all odds served her nation. It’s a real story based on the story of a Kashmiri woman who married a Pakistani Army officer to provide the information to the Indian Intelligence during the Indo-Pak War of 1971. Alia Bhatt played the role of the lead character and nailed it. 

Mary Kom 

Mary Kom followed boxer Mary Kom's journey of becoming victorious at the 2008 World Boxing Championships in Ningbo. Priyanka Chopra stepped into the shoes of Mary Kom and portrayed it brilliantly. The actor trained hard to get the minutest details of the game just right on the big screen. Mary Kom is a great example for women to pursue their passion even after becoming a mother. Did you like the movie? Let us know in the comments section below!

Sarbjit 

Based on the life of Sarabjit Singh, a farmer who was captured by the Pakistani Army and was kept for 23 long years in jail, Sarbjit is basically about Sarabjit’s sister who fought for justice for her brother. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan played the role of Dalbir Kaur and did a decent job in showing the struggles of a sister who was asking for justice for her brother for years. 

 

Manikarnika

Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is based on the life of Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi and her war against the British East India Company during the Indian Rebellion of 1857. Kangana nailed the role with perfection. The actress also donned the hat of a director. In an interview with us, Kangana Ranaut was asked about working as a director for the film, and she revealed that this is not the first time she worked behind the camera. "This is not my first experience as far as supervising the edit or even directing a film is concerned. I was 23 or 24, when I directed my first film. It was a 10-minute short film that I had shot with an international crew. Also at that time, I was struggling with small roles in films like Double Dhamaal (2011). So I've been a director since then. Be it direction, writing or editing, I've already done it in the past", said the actress.

 

 

Neerja 

Neerja revolves around Neerja Bhanot, a flight attendant on board the Pan Am Flight 73 from Mumbai to New York, who was shot dead by the terrorists who had hijacked the plane while trying to save the lives of 359 passengers. Neerja, posthumously, became the youngest recipient of India's highest Civilian Award for Bravery, the Ashok Chakra, while Pakistan bestowed its prestigious Tamgha-e-Insaaniyat Award and US its Justice for Crimes Award to her for showing incredible human kindness during the hijack. Sonam Kapoor played the role of Neerja and was appreciated for her portrayal.
