    6. Mallika Sherawat
    7. Shraddha Kapoor
    8. Alia Bhat
    9. Frieda Pinto
    10.Kangna Ranaut

    How come these people are not in the list while you have mentioned Sonakshi Sinha, Asin , Vidya Balan and Ameesha patel whose strong points are not looks ?

    Besides I think you could have done more to write better descriptions and could have chosen better pictures of these ladies. Describing Deepika Padukone as an “Ace actress” while not mentioning much about Priyanka Chopra’s huge talent . She is a former Miss.World ,national award winner , great public speaker and a well established singer . And why would anybody bother to mention about Deepika’s non-existent dancing skills when you have Madhuri Dixit and Aishwarya Rai on the list ? Plus Shruti Hassan has way more than beautiful lips , eyes etc.. She is a great singer( both classical and western ) and a good actress.
