Glamour has always been a synonym with Bollywood. Actresses are almost always expected to look good, both on-screen and off the screen. However, some actresses take up roles that require them to look de-glam. Here are some of the glamorous actresses who pulled off the de-glam look in films and TV shows with ease.

Alia Bhatt

Alia Bhatt has done a vast variety of roles in her short career so far in Bollywood. Not only one but she went de-glam for two power pack roles. The first was for Highway and the other for Udta Punjab. She played both the characters so effortlessly, that we know Alia is the queen of versatility and doesn’t need make-up or a fancy wardrobe to prove it.

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra, the global queen, was barely recognizable as the autistic ‘Jhilmil’ in ‘Barfi. She left such a deep impact on the audience with her brilliant performance that it is believed to be one of her career-best performances.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who is known for her beauty, amazed audiences when she went de-glam for Omung Kumar-helmed biopic Sarabjit. In the project, she played the role of Sarabjit Singh’s sister Dalbir Kaur. Sporting a de-glam look with no makeup and simple dressing, she not only surprised fans with her look but also with her outstanding performance.

Sonam Kapoor

The fashionista of Bollywood Sonam Kapoor surprised us with her non-glamorous look clad in black khadi kurtas and simple Punjabi suits in the films like Raanjhanaa and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. Sonam’s sartorial choices off-screen and her plain Jane look in these two films are as different from each other as chalk and cheese. However, she carries off both looks with equal panache.

Not just Bollywood beauties but also TV actresses have aced the de-glam look!

Mahhi Vij

The young actress Mahhi Vij played the role of Nakusha in Laagi Tujhse Lagan who is forced to hide her beauty and sport a darker complexion to avoid being taken advantage of. The great performer managed to rock in her de-glam avatar successfully.
