Hollywood Actresses vs Bollywood Actresses

Updated on May 4, 2017

Bollywood Actresses vs Hollywood Actresses

Just West-Northwest of Downtown Los Angeles, California is a district in called Hollywood.
It's considered to be the pulse of the world's cinema and of course it has the world's most beautiful actresses right?

Well there is another film industry based in Mumbai, India that might challenge that notion.
It's called Bollywood, and it too has some of the most beautiful actresses in the world.

So here, in a move that I'm sure will start some arguments, I'm gonna put some of Hollywood's sexiest actresses up against Bollywood's best and see who comes out on top,

Since everyone knows I'm border-line obsessed with competition, let's see how these ladies fair head to head.

This list was compiled from internet searches from the major search engines, so if you think "so and so" is a better actress than "so and so" you may well be right, because this list is based on popularity not talent.

And in a change from my usual format, we're gonna start at the bottom and work our way up to the main event.

So here's our first match up.....

Bipasha Basu vs Nicole Kidman

Bipasha Basu
Born: January 7th, 1979 in New Delhi, India
Acting Debut: 2001
Number of Films: 43
Awards and Nominations: 35

Nicole Kidman
Born: June 20th, 1967 in Honolulu, Hawaii, U.S
Acting Debut: 1983
Number of Films: 54
Awards and Nominations: 22

In the first match up, Bispasha takes Nicole, but just barely.

Shilpa Shetty vs Keira Knightley

Shilpa Shetty
Born: June 8th,1975 in Mangalore, India
Acting Debut: 1993
Number of Films: 49
Awards and Nominations: 18

Keira Knightley
Born: March 26th, 1985 in Teddington, London, England
Acting Debut: 1998
Number of Films: 24
Awards and Nominations: 4

In the second bout, Shilpa easily outdistances Keira.

Preity Zinta vs Penelope Cruz

Preity Zinta
Born: January 31st, 1975 in Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, India
Acting Debut: 1998
Number of Films: 35
Awards and Nominations: 21

Penélope Cruz

Born: April 28th, 1974 in Alcobendas, Community of Madrid, Spain
Acting Debut: 1990
Number of Films: 44
Awards and Nominations: 69

In the third match up, Penélope bests Preity by a wide margin.

Deepika Padukone vs Jessica Biel

Deepika Padukone
Born: January 5th, 1986 in Copenhagen, Denmark
Acting Debut: 2006
Number of Films: 12
Awards and Nominations: 20

Jessica Biel
Born: March 3rd, 1982 in Ely, Minnesota
Acting Debut: 1996
Number of Films: 24
Awards and Nominations: 3

In the fourth bout, Jessica just beats Deepika

Rani Mukherjee vs Scarlett Johansson

Rani Mukherjee
Born: March 21st, 1978 in Kolkata, West Bengal, India
Acting Debut: 1997
Number of Films: 44
Awards and Nominations: 79

Scarlett Johansson

Born: November 22nd, 1984, New York City, New York
Acting Debut: 1994
Number of Films: 30
Awards and Nominations: 6

In the fifth round, Rani easily defeats Scar-Jo.

Sameera Reddy vs Jessica Alba

Sameera Reddy
Born: December 14th, 1980
Acting Debut: 2002
Number of Films: 38
Awards and Nominations: 1 (all I could find at least)

Jessica Alba
Born: April 28th, 1981
Acting Debut: 1994
Number of Films: 24
Awards and Nominations: 6

Priyanka Chopra vs Jennifer Aniston

Priyanka Chopra
Born: July 18, 1982 in Jamshedpur, Jharkand, India
Acting Debut: 2001
Number of Films: 37
Awards and Nominations: 46

Jennifer Aniston
Born: February 11, 1969 in Sherman Oaks, California
Acting Debut: 1989
Number of Films: 25
Awards and Nominations: 23

Priyanka easily bests Jennifer

Kareena Kapoor vs Jennifer Lopez

Kareena Kapoor
Born: September 21, 1980
Acting Debut: 2000
Number of Films: 39
Awards and Nominations: 77

Jennifer Lopez
Born: July 24, 1969 in The Bronx, New York
Acting Debut: 1987
Number of Films: 27
Awards and Nominations: 25 (JUST for film nominations and awards, I didn't count music)

Although Jennifer may out-rank Karenna as far as music goes, the nod goes to Kareena as far as acting.

Aishwarya Rai vs Angelina Jolie

Aishwarya Rai
Born: November 1, 1973
Acting Debut: 1997
Number of Films: 42
Awards and Nominations: 65

Angelina Jolie
Born: June 4, 1975 in Los Angeles, California
Acting Debut: 1982
Number of Films: 38
Awards and Nominations: 56

This probably should have been the main event in all fairness.
Two women popularly acknowledged to be the most beautiful women in the world.
And though it's very close, Ash just barely edges Angelina out.

Katrina Kaif vs Megan Fox

Katrina Kaif
Born: July 16, 1984 in Hong Kong
Acting Debut: 2003
Number of Films: 21
Awards and Nominations: 40

Megan Fox
Born: May 16, 1986 in Oak Ridge, Tennessee
Acting Debut: 2001
Number of Films: 13
Awards and Nominations: 8

Now for the final bout.
Although there may be better actresses than either of these ladies, they are the most popular.
But even though starting out two years after Megan, Katrina fairly easily beats Megan.

So there you have it.
The final tally is ...the actresses of Bollywood over the actress of Hollywood, 7 to 3.

      It's all about their personality, and each of them has different and beautiful personality. I think who is the better is all about their acting and script of movies. I'm not that much familiar with Bollywood, but till this time whatever I have been watching, I would say, it is recycling of Hollywood in different angles of camera and language with same theme.

      One of my fave Indian actresses who is not Bollywood is Noureen DeWulf! There are over 1.1 billion Indians who can vote on this one compared to 300 million Americans. But in honesty, everyone you listed is gorgeous and everyone really has their own taste.

      gramon1:I actually wrote about them making Bollywood Hero on my Bollywood blog before it came out, but I haven't had a chance to sit down and watch it yet.

      Sabreblade, I just rented a video that was very funny and you may enjoy. It is "Bollywood Heroe" and it's really three TV episodes about an American frustrated actor that goes to Mumbai to become a Hindi movie heroe. It was hillareous. Neha Dhupia is in it. She is gorgeous and dances incredibly well. I am not familiar with the other two actresses, but they were also great.

      I really haven't got a clue about anything to do with bollywood as I dont find their movies or their actors/actresses interesting at all. The hollywood actresses are ok although I would have loved if you put Catherine Zeta Jones there.. She's awesome as an actress and very beautiful.

      dlstern0226: Very true...and thanks for dropping by!

      gramon1: I have to agree about the pics. I tried and tried to find ones I haven't used anywhere else (since I have a TON of Bollywood Hubs and a Bollywood blog)but that was the best I could do.

      I definitely go for the Bollywood actress. But the pictures of Aishwarya and Katrina Kaif are not what I would consider their best. Especially Katrina is the sweet type. The picture does not show that.

      Any way, I like to see the Bollywood and Hollywood divas side to side.

      Of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Everyone has different ideas about it. All the women are beautiful. But, in the final analysis it's what's inside that counts!

      I am in love with Jessica Alba and Scarlett Johansson. Angelina Jolie is a gorgeous woman, but in an unapproachable kind of way--unless you're Brad Pitt, I guess.

      I'm also crazy about Kate Winslet, if you ever wanted to do a hub about her, by the way...

      All of these women are indeed beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
