Mogli!  LOL Sonam doing a film with RKS or Mani Ratnam is the biggest joke of the year!!!  ROFL  I wonder why big banners are giving her the time of day!!!  Wink  I want Anuskha to do a big film outside of Yash Raj.  Movies like Ladies Vs. Ricky Bahl will not help her!  Geek
Mogli you forgot Abhishek and Kareena in Yuva...the overrated/overhyped flop king and queen of the time LOL 
 
On topic:
Today's heroines are pretty much only required to look pretty and shake their boobs and ass. They are not expected to act. I'd actually say our actors are expected to have more of an acting bone in them than the heroines.
 
Can the heroines today do substantial roles? Vidya Balan most definitely can. Priyanka tries her best to. The rest...with a good director, good script with a good substantial role for them, could possibly do one. But...are they willing to be more than the decorative furniture in a movie and are the industrywallas ready to offer them substantial roles?

Vidya can...Priyanka and Kareena keep trying from time to time. I have no hopes from Katrina. About the rest-Sonam, DP, Sonakshi, Anushka...I feel we shouldnt dismiss them off. With a good role and a good director they have the potential to perform. But they might not get the oppty.

And the answer is a NO.Every actress now wants to become a star and not an actress.If the actress really acts,then she can perform substantial roles,but most of the actresses choose to star in a film and not act,taking the route of expensive dance numbers,dresses,etc.They are popular more for their offscreen 'acting' than their onscreen 'acting' because of which they are stars.The day these actresses start really acting in a Bollywood film,they will be able to perform in substantial roles IMO.


Also,it dependsupon the creatives of a particular film.Films like TDP,NOKJ,Shaitan gives actresses an oppurtunity to have a substantial role in the film whereas films like Ra One,Bodyguard,TMK only allows the girls of bollywood to be eye candy for the audience.So here also,if the brains behind Bollywood films start developing substantial roles for actresses,I am sure,we can see some strong women centric characters in Bollywood films.

The new age actresses do nothing but act as an eye candy most of the times in bollywood films these days,but if these actresses...even Katrina falls into the hands of the right director,they can give award winning performances.But sadly,there aren't sufficient good directors out here in Bollywood,and the sane ones make films with the experienced and not the popular.

I think I have deviated from the topic midway :/..Never mind.

Thumbs Up , Ditto, None really want to act they want to go with big names and all , they take TIME in deciding over SCRIPT and keep making those Substanical roles wait and wait, and they breath a sign of relief when it comes to another actress who can ACT ... 

@Topic, Nope ... they simply cannot
