Continuing the Bollywood's Top 5 heroines series, we profile Urmila Matondkar, who emerged the third popular actress of 2003. Readers chose Preity Zinta and Rani Mukerji for the first and second places respectively. Aishwarya Rai came fourth.


Costar: Aamir Khan
Director: Ram Gopal Varma

Urmila’s earlier films like Narsimha, Drohi, Chamatkar and Aa Gaye Laga Ja were disasters at the box-office.

After as many as 12 flops, Urmila finally made her mark in Ram Gopal Varma’s Rangeela. The film gave Urmila a new look and a new image.

Though a chawl girl, she sported trendy outfits and became the new sex kitten of Bollywood.
