Priyanka Chopra.
Kajol is also really good, people talking about her lack of versatility are acting as if she is an Arshad Warsi doing circuit roles in almost all movies.

I believe Kajol is the better actress -  based on talent and success rate of her movies.
Every body in the industry need to have looks to survive so both are  beautiful ladies - 

While Priyanka has been working non stop and working in a variety of roles,  Kajol has chosen to work in limited number of movies so comparing the number of movies  should not be the only scale they are compared to.

the  question to ask is would Priyanka be able to walk back into a movie after 4 to 5 years and still give a great performance and have a successful run ????

Kajol has always played safe. With same kind of role under the same banner(yrf & dharma, banners which have excellent track record), so obviously her success rate will be more. Whereas PC has taken risky roles, pushed the bar, didn't stick to a safe banner. 

Did you notice that her comeback films are under the same banner she used to work with and one was her husband's production? Out of the 5 films she did after her comeback 3 was dud.

OT: According to me Kajol can act better than Priyanka. Just look at the performance she gave in Gupt and Dushman. She has potential which she wasted. If she had pushed herself she would have pulled even Fashion or Barfi.

Priyanka is a good actress but I have seen her falter in some of her roles. Nonetheless she is commendable for taking risk and do something out of the box. This is where Priyanka scores.

Priyanka is the better actor than Kajol. I judge how an actor can cry on screen well. 

Kajol can not pull off crying scenes at all, she goes OTT & starts to screech. She makes me laugh when ever I have seen her crying on screen.

while PC is more natural when crying. 

At least PC has taken risks and has not played safe, unlike Kajol.

They're both great in their own ways. Kajol was never as dedicated towards her work as PC though. PC has always tried to prove herself with everything she has done. She also has done way more movies. Her career graph is commendable to say the least. With that said, I feel Kajol is more natural and effortless as a performer. I can't see PC doing many of Kajols roles (even if they weren't as challenging as some of her own)..and vice versa.  
As far as who I voted for..Kajol. I connect with her performances as an audience...and that goes back to her being effortless with her craft.

Kajol can only do loud roles. Yea she is a decent actor but she never went out of her comfort zone. There is zero variety in her filmography. While PC started out as an average actress, she with her hard work dedication and good script sense became a better actress.

comparisons should be done with same era of actress and not different era actress...they both are good in their respective space of work...

Kajol is an actress in the 90s where leading ladies has no much scope to do those days thus she picks films like Baazigar...Dushman...Gupt..DDLJ...KKHH...Ishq and many more those days...if you see her careergraph...her roles are not flowerpots in the 90s...she has a strong role in the film...the problem with her is she didn't push the bar in her work wise becos she gave importance to her married life and kids...she is not ambitious or wants to prove the world something...she works for her own happiness and she chooses role which she is comfortable in...and she gives her 100%...

those days in 90s...YRF rules...Dharma rules and her pairing with SRK is legend...they are BW romantic couple of all times

when PC enter BW...women centric roles began to enter BW...slowly scripts are written for womens and performance oriented films begins to make a success...more options were open whether one wants to be a commercial cinema actress or performance oriented actress or both together a balance in commercial and performance oriented cinema...even complex character begin to rule...there was more options to choose in form of roles...and those roles are definitely not flowerpots...PC loves to challenge herself...push her bar in work wise...challenge comes with complex roles...after doing flowerpots role...she began to challenge herself and push her bar...she chose all the complex characters...she challenge herself even more that she qualiies for both commercial success and complex characters...there was more options for her to choose and prove herself...BW too going through a change of giving female leading ladies a good script...unlike in the 90s in where leading ladies had to dance more than acting...only YRF gives leading ladies the due...In YRF...leading ladies are the heroes and leading mens are brought to romance them...another one is SB...leading ladies are given a strong role thus we got suman...nisha...preeti...poonam

those days in 90s BW didn't have madhur bhandakar...imitiaz ali..anand L rai...the kahaani director to name some who gives leading ladies equal importance...

In the 90s too...romance was given more importance than complex characters...only Mahesh Bhatt those days in the 90s give leading ladies a powerful role thus we got Dushman...Sangharsh...from his kitty...

sometimes comparisons should be done with era the actress belongs too...kajol and PC had a complete different era and both are good at their work...

kajol can't do a fashion...barfi..BM...aitraaz
PC can't do a DDLJ...KKHH...K3G...
