Aishwarya RaiBollywood beauties embrace action on screen

The gorgeous Aishwarya Rai Bachchan sword fighting with Hrithik Roshan in Jodhaa Akbar strengthens the trend of Bollywood beauties embracing action on screen.

Not just Ash, actresses like Deepika Padukone , Priyanka Chopra , Bipasha Basu and Koena Mitra , are no longer content with just dancing around trees or singing in the rain. Instead, they are in a bid to compete with action heroes.




"The trend of more heroines taking up action roles itself shows that with the evolution of the Hindi film industry, women are getting to do more in films than just dance around trees," Deepika said recently.

Deepika is all set to give a heady rush of adrenaline to audiences with action scenes in Nikhil Advani 's 'Chandni Chowk To China', previously titled Made In China , opposite Akshay Kumar .

Priyanka, after kicking butt in Don , will be seen doing heavy-duty action in Love Story 2050 and Koena plays a superwoman in 'Karna'.

Earlier, Shilpa Shetty did some stunts in Dus as an intelligence officer and Sushmita Sen gave an action packed performance in Samay as a police officer.

Ash's and Bipasha's racy acts proved a crowd puller in Dhoom 2 and even Esha Deol , Dia Mirza and Shamita Shetty did some stunts in Cash .

So it can be said that flexing muscles, swinging a sword or jumping from one building to another is no longer the forte of heroes as Bollywood actresses are increasingly embracing action-oriented roles.
