These Bollywood Divas Over 40 Have A Stunningly Fierce Beauty Game!


Bollywood divas seriously have their hands on a youth potion or are genuinely Benjamin Buttoning their way to another dimension! Ageing gracefully is one thing, but there’s something to be said about ageing fiercely. These Bollywood bombshells prove every single day that their beauty game is just as fierce today as it was when they started out (for some it’s even better today). 

I was just scrolling through Instagram when I came across this picture of Madhuri Dixit Nene from an event, and not to be a cliche but it definitely made my heart go dhak dhak. Also, it made me want to apply to be her executive assistant so I could follow her around and write down each and everything she does. Creepy? Maybe a little. Anyway, her picture brought me into a vortex of all my favourite Bollywood beauties who are around the same age (north of 40) and thus started a series of constant fawning.

Here are my absolute favourite (and recent) hair and makeup moments from these Bollywood beauties!

1. Madhuri Dixit Nene

I cannot believe this woman is well over 50. I just cannot. I shall not.

We know what she’s going through and we are praying that she emerges victorious in this battle against time. But she will still always and forever be my first girl crush.

She just played Nargis in the biopic Sanju. But her beauty game otherwise is getting stronger with every passing picture!

THAT smile, it can melt the rockiest of hearts!

7. Shilpa Shetty Kundra

This yummy mommy never clicks a bad picture. EVER. 

8. Malaika Arora Khan

You think you know what fit means? Think again. Also, she NEVER fails to take up an opportunity to experiment with her look.

9. Sushmita Sen

Looks like the sass helps her ace the beauty game! Just look at those voluminous waves. Bad hair day? What’s that!

Those eyes, and the eye makeup surrounding those eyes. Every. Single. Time.

With a jawline that can grate cheese, who needs anything else. Do you even have a bad angle woman?

Well, now that I feel sufficiently hopeful for me to look a little better than a potato when I grow older, I’m going to move on with my day.
