    Default Bollywood's Beauties With Brains

    It might be hard to imagine but some of our B-town scorchers have more to them than just their glamorous on-screen persona.

    Ameesha Patel

    She may not be the most successful actress around but she certainly tops this list much to our surprise — and chagrin. After all, how does a high society girl go from head girl of her prestigious school (Mumbai's elite Cathedral & John Connon School), gold medallist in Economics at Tufts University and a career as an economics analyst to item number-lovin' Bollywood hottie?

    Yes, you read that right. Patel is probably accomplished academically more than you and me and had a tough time convincing her family of her choice in profession due to the same.

    All people from her past remember her incredible academic abilities and still wonder at the transformation. Well, we suppose passion is better than rotting away at a 9 to 5 job even if you're much better at the latter. P.S. - She was also offered a job at Morgan Stanley shortly after graduating.

    Gul Panag

    Though she experienced the childhood of an army brat and studied in over 14 schools, Panag maintained a keen focus on her acamdeics. Despite having the face of an angel and a clear path in the beauty industry she not only finished her schooling but went on to complete her Bachelors in Mathematics at the Punjab University as well as a Masters in Political Science from the same.

    Her early interest in Public Speaking which saw her win multiple awards is a talent she clearly still carries till today as we have witnessed when she holds an entire audience rapt with her words. Currently, she is widely regarded as one of B-town's most intelligent actors for everything from her choice in scripts to her method of acting to her involvement in social causes as well as her indelible Twitter persona. In fact, she is widely believed to be one of the sot influential celebrities on Twitter thanks to her intellect. And yes, she manages her account herself.

    Konkona Sen Sharma

    The daughter of a science writer and journalist father and a genius film-maker mother (Aparna Sen), Konkona Sen Sharma almost had no choice but to be born cerebral and prodigious. With her impeccably intellectual bloodline it came as no surprise to anyone when she got into India's best college—St. Stephens College—and completed her degree in English from there.


    Today, she is a tremendous arthouse cinema performer and has received undulated respect from many Bollywood veteran actors for her intelligence while performing which clearly shines through. In fact, Shabana Azmi (a later feature on this list) said in an interview that, "Sen is one of the most intelligent actors around. At the moment, all her work springs from honesty." She also has tremendous courage while picking roles that are off the beaten path but always manages to make them work for her.

    Shabana Azmi

    No one would even bother trying to refute this because Azmi is undoubtedly one of Bollywood's most cerebral performers till date. She's married to renowned poet and screenwriter Javed Akhtar making them one of India's most intellectually powerful couples around too.

    Several directors ranging from Sudhir Mishra to Aparna Sen have praised Azmi's intellectual capacity in the past. She's deeply involved in social causes as well and has come to be known as a serious activist too. She's been a member of the National Integration Council since 1989 and also a member of parliament in the Rajya Sabha where she was nominated. She's also been appointed as the UN's goodwill ambassador in the past, an honour we know is reserved for a very special few. Most importantly however is that unlike all other Bollywood beauties, when she speaks she always has something of true value to say and we can't help but listen. That in itself keeps her deserving of her spot on this list.

    Lara Dutta

    She may look like one of the most glamourous actresses in the industry but anyone who's been watching Dutta since her being crowned as Miss Universe knows there's a lot more to this leggy lass. In 2000's Miss Universe Competition, she broke all records during the interview round with her thought-provoking and incredibly powerful responses. Every judge there awarded her a 9.9 (the maximum score possible to be allotted).

    This win also got her appointed as a UNFPA Goodwill Ambassador in the future and ever since, no matter how many silly Bollywood films she does, when she speaks we all know she's as intelligent as they come. She can attempt to hide it from other B-town bimbos but certainly not from us! In fact, the actress has even admitted to be tired of the general perception that she's a totally 'cerebral person' because she knows how to have a good time too.

    Soha Ali Khan

    Much like Konkona Sen Sharma, Soha Ali Khan too comes from a rather profound bloodline. She attended The British School in New Delhi and Balliol College at Oxford topping all that great education off with a Masters Degree in International Relations from LSE and Political Science! She then went on to work for both Ford and Citibank before joining hands with the entertainment industry here.

    Today, she still juggles several of her intellectual capabilities along with her acting regime and has clearly struck a fine balance between the two worlds; not exactly an easy feat.

    Preity Zinta

    This dimpled beauty is all set to make her silver screen comeback but in her few years' hiatus she's also proved that she's one of the savviest business-women out there. As a part IPL team owner of Kings XI Punjab in addition to her finger in several other pies, her zeal has ensured that she exceeds at everything she touches, including businesses and film production.

    She graduated with English Honours, pursued a further graduation in Psychology and even earned a post graduate degree in Criminal Psychology. All of this alongside winning awards for Best Actress in films like Veer Zaara. A full blown Bollywood beauty with brains? We certainly think so.
