Whoever said you need a man by your side to have a little fun in life? If you doubt us one tiny bit, all you need to do is look up these ladies who are having so much fun in their single avatar! Here are 9 leading ladies of Bollywood who are rocking the single life and how!
1. Priyanka Chopra
PC is on a roll! From being the first Bollywood actress to bag a lead role in an American TV series to starring in what’s predicted to be the year’s biggest blockbuster (Bajirao Mastani), to also being named the sexiest Asian woman of the year. Who knows how she’s managing being everywhere, all at once - all we know is, we just can’t get enough of her!
2. Nargis Fakhri
We know it’s not very polite to guess a woman’s age, but we’d urge you to fancy what Nargis is going at…’coz she totally blows our minds at 36! Yes, she is but a few years away from her forties, and still a top choice with top designers to walk their ramps. This one does not plan on “settling down”, and is super happy being her awesome single self.
3. Sushmita Sen
She has continuously redefined what being a modern, independent woman means for all of us. Sush adopted and raised two daughters, without a man by her side, in a society that raises its eyebrows at single mothers. And all this is an act of choice and love. She is her own hero, and quite a role model to her daughters, we say.
4. Neha Dhupia
Neha has publicly admitted how she loves her single life, ‘coz it gives her complete freedom to do whatever she wants with her time - which mostly includes having loads of friends and going out on as many dates as she likes!
5. Kalki Koechlin
She had quite a public relationship and divorce with Anurag Kashyap, and now is very open about the troubles she now faces as a single, divorcee in the big city. She is quite vocal about women’s issues and often shows us all how she is a more than just a pretty face, and that a “social stigma” like divorce won’t stop her from living it up.
6. Parineeti Chopra
This Punjabi kudi’s new campaign, Built This Way, is all about struggling and celebrating your struggle, and taking pride in who you are and who you can become. She has simply wowed us.
7. Kangana Ranaut
The Queen of Bollywood - and may we say, rightfully so? Kangana shows us what real struggle is like, after having conquered over B-Town by fighting through issues with her appearance, language barriers, acting challenges and lack of support from others. She shows us how not to succumb to failure and how not to give up.
8. Sonam Kapoor
She doesn’t dress up for the attention of some guy - she dresses up because she loves it, and isn’t that just so great? The world is now her fashion show, and we can’t applaud her style enough. And that is worth more than some guy’s attention, right?
9. Sarah Jane Dias
From singing, songwriting and releasing her debut music album to recently starring in Angry Indian Goddesses, Sarah Jane is doing everything she loves -and having so much fun at it. For her, being single means having more “me time” - the time you would spend on discovering and honing your passion, the one true love of your life.
