The first half of 2015 may have started on a slow note but it has been amazing for our actresses as they mostly dominated at the box office. After taking a look at the top 5 films of this year, its time to list down the 5 heroines who ruled at the box office in the first half of 2015. Well, till now the year has been good not just for the industry but also for our B-town beauties.
It’s been a great year for women at the movies. Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut, Anushka Sharma, Vidya Balan all got a chance to play some meaty roles. While some of them worked, some didn’t. In the first half of 2015, we also had a new entrant who charmed many with her acting chops and cute looks. I am talking about Yash Raj Films’ latest find Bhumi Pednekar who made her acting debut with Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Dum Laga Ke Haisha. So overall, so far 2015 has been good for the ladies but let’s check out who have grabbed the top 5 positions…

Its no surprise that Kangana is at the top position. Her romantic comedy Tanu Weds Manu Returns which released in May literally stormed the box office. In fact, the film is still running in the theatres and its already been declared as a all time blockbuster. So its obvious that she had to grab no.1 position

Shoojit Sircar’s directorial venture starring Dippy, Amitabh Bachchan and Irrfan Khan was expected to impress the masses and it did to a very large extent.

While we’ll have to wait and see how far Piku goes in the numbers game, for now, Ms Padukone stands at no. 5
