Comment in terms of looks, personality, types of roles they played, how (if at all) they were capable of fitting into the roles they played, and most importantly, their acting skill - the most important aspect of being an actor.
For me, it would be Rani, Rani and Rani. Loved her since Kuch Kuch Hota Hai time. Though she was not successful in establishing herself as a leading actress in Bollywood before 2002, I really enjoyed and appreciated her performance. I fell madly in love with her gorgeous looks in Hum Tum, and cried after seeing her performance in Black - the two films which made her what she is today. I also appreciated her performance in Chalte Chalte, Yuva, Veer-Zaara, Bunti aur Bubly and Laaga Chunari Main Daag.
Preity for me is an ordinary actress. The only place where she shocked me with her performance would be Veer-Zaara. While I did not like the film much, I won't deny her performance was brilliant. She had improved her acting skills a lot by this film, and was disappointed to see her not winning any award for it (a little happy to that Rani got it instead of her
). The other films where I appreciated her performance and her rebellious and passionate character would be Dil Se, Kya Kahena and Salaam-Namaste. She failed to impress me in Kal Ho Na Ho. Despite the numerous awards she won, and the popularity she earned with that film, I never was impressed with her work there. Her acting seemed to be way too much artificial there.
So, for me, it would be Rani.
