I think Kriti Sanon & Diana Penty are the only 2 girls who are closer to 5'10". infact these 2 I guess have just raised the bar fro heighs of bollywood ladies which for long had stagnated between 5'8" & 5'9". Offcourse we had rare cases like Pooja Batra & Yukta Mookhey who were pushing 6 ft but that is the reason their careers hit a road block. Hope Bollywood accepts these 5'10" girls and pairs them with the taller men.

@nona very tall actresses like isha koppikar and kangana ranaut look short in front of sushmita
Dost says on 20/Oct/14
Nona is correct, Sushmita is not 5'10, she is closer to 5'8. Katrina is about 0.5" taller than Sush in Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya.

Deepika is 5'8.5 and Kriti is closer to 5'10!

@Baba: Namitha is not big, she is huge at 5'8" & 95 kgs. Furthr she has very broad shoulders with thick arms and tree trunk like thighs. I am sure none of the tiny south indian heros can lift her. Infact Namitha is twice the size of most of the heroines
dec@p says on 17/Oct/14
@nona i dont think zoom tv will provide fake information of any actor or actress. Sushmita looks taller than many 5'8 actresses
nona says on 16/Oct/14
@dec@p: Sushmita is no way 5'10". See the movie she starred in with Katrina Kaif and in that the 5'9" Katrina is taller than Sushmita in all scenes. I would put Katrina at 5'9" & 72 kgs and Sushmita at 5'8" & 65 kgs
Baba says on 16/Oct/14
Namitha is one of the big actress in Indian cinema. So now she is appearing more bigger
dec@p says on 15/Oct/14
on zoomtv shweta kawatra said that SUSHMITA SEN's height is 5'10. I think she hides her height
nona says on 15/Oct/14
@babu: The other girl with Aiahwary ais Abhishek's sister Shweta. She is 5'10" tall but in your pic she does not look 4" taller than Aishwarya.
dec@p says on 14/Oct/14
even sayali bhagat is very tall. She is more than 5'8
nona says on 13/Oct/14
Its sad that we are not discussing one of the first tall (>5'8") heroines to appear in Hindi movies. I am talking about the 5'9" Tabu who apart from being tall was very well built at 80 kgs. I remember her in the song Ruk Ruk where she was huge compared to Rishi Kapoor with tree trunk like legs and huge curvy hips. Now with age (she is 44) she has lost a bit of weight and weighs about 75 kgs. Still she is defnitely one big tall graceful lady worth discussing

@sampu: Sonakshi is only 5'6" and she towers over Priyanka because Priyanka is only 5'4". Infact Sonakshi who weighs close to 78 kgs is a giant when compared to Priyanka who is tiny at 53 kgs
sampu says on 8/Oct/14
Mentioning Sonakshi as 5'6" is the biggest blunder in that. She towers over Priyanka and is taller than Rekha also. i.e, 5'8" at least.
Vishnu says on 7/Oct/14
But it looks like a document done without checking for proofs.I still think there will be changes within that.
Dost says on 6/Oct/14
@sid, @aparash - a lot of those heights are wrong. Sonam and Bipasha both being 5'8 is the easiest to disprove. I can find a handful of photos of Bipasha with Sonam, Katrina, Shilpa, etc. and she is shorter than them by at least an inch...
aparash says on 6/Oct/14
@sid
Awesome goldmine, i guess all the debate can be laid to rest now.
Sania says on 6/Oct/14
Nergis is taller than varun in recent movie
sid says on 4/Oct/14
see this link Click Here
Dost says on 3/Oct/14
If you watch this video (Click Here), you will see Nargis and Deepika together. Looks like Nargis is about 1/2 inch to 1 inch taller.
nona says on 1/Oct/14
@Dost: yeah Nargis Fakhri at 5'9" is also on the skinnier side but not as skinny as Diana and Anushka. Nargis I think tips the scales at about 60 kgs like Kriti.
@Sid: I have not measured anybodys heels or height or weight. All my opinions are based on what I see in comparison pics. So whatever i say is defnitley up for debate and discussion.
Dost says on 1/Oct/14
@nona, looked closer at Kriti Sanon and I truly believe she is 5'10 or so. The girl is always in flats and absolutely towered over the 5'5 Aamir by 5" or so, more than Katrina Kaif did also in flats. Also Kriti in flats is virtually equal to Jackie Shroff, who I think is around 5'10. I've also seen Deepika with Jackie and she was a couple of inches shorter than him.
Dost says on 1/Oct/14
@sid - agree with nona that Sonakshi is not in the same class as some of the other ladies we are talking about. I am going to give her 5'7". She is not as tall as Shahid Kapoor and also agree with nona that she is probably in some massive heels.

Look here: Click Here
Compare with someone like Sonam Kapoor: Click Here
Anushka Sharma: Click Here
Dost says on 29/Sep/14
@Nona, could possibly throw 5'9 Nargis Fakhri into that group as well.
sid says on 29/Sep/14
@nona have u gone and checked sonakshi's and sonika's heels. So dont give that fake answers. Also see in bullet raja that sonakshi appeared to be taller than saif
nona says on 29/Sep/14
There is Telugu movie named "Rani Rudhrammadevi" which is being shot and it has got to be the movie with the tallest female starcast ever. There are 3 girls in the movie, namely Anushka Shetty (6'0" & 77 kgs), Hamsa Nandini (6'0" & 65 kgs) and Nathalia Kaur (5'10" & 63 kgs).
nona says on 29/Sep/14
Kriti Sanon is 5'9" and weighs 60 kgs whereas Dian penty is 5'10" and weighs 53 kgs. Both very tall and very thin. Anushka Shetty at 5'9" & 53 kgs also lands in this bracket.
nona says on 29/Sep/14
@sid: thanks for the comparison pics. Karishma Tanna is 5'11" and so is Sonika Kaliraman so guess Sonika is in heels. Sonika though weighs about 85 kgs compared to karishma's 68 kgs and is huge compared to karishma. In the 2nd pic Sonakshi is in atleast 6" heels and towers over the 5'8" Saif by 4", so that would make her 5'6". At her height she is huge and weighs close to 75 kgs. The only actress shorter than 5'7" but who is bigger than Sonakshi is Huma Quereshi who is 5'7" and weighs a massive 80 kgs

I know this has been discussed, but Kriti Sanon looks at least 5'9 and possibly 5'10. Saw her in pics with Aamir and Salman Khan in flats and she was towered over them. Have compared Salman with Shilpa, Sushmita, Katrina, Deepika, etc. and Kriti definitely seems to have these ladies by at least an inch.

The question now is who's taller - Kriti or Diana Penty?

Aishwarya & Priyanka are both only 5'4" and 2 of the shortest Miss India's ever. The others being Namrata Shirodkar (5'5") & Dia Mirza (5'6"). What makes Priyanka better is her well toned body which Aiahwarya never had even when she was single. Aishwarya weighs close to 65 kgs now compared to Priyanka's 53 kgs

@jack, you are bang on. I myself genuinely believe that she is a giantess who hides her precise height. She is more around 6'1" than 5'11" which she had mentioned sometimes. I also think that she may have grown a little after winning Miss World. This video is absolutely fabulous and she is the tallest in the gathering towering over everyone by several inches. She is standing in the last row yet visible very clearly. A real amazon.

Talking of sportswomen, I was just looking at the profiles of Krishna Poonia & Seema Punia the 2 champion discus throwers and was amazed that indian girls could be so tall and huge. Krishna Poonia is 6'0" & 96 kgs and Seema Punia is 6'1" & 98 kgs. These 2 are easily taller and stronger than 70% of the men in India

@sid Ayushmann is 5'8 maybe 5'8.5 but no more than than.Sonam is almost 5'9 but she looks much taller in films/promotions.Akshay is 5'11 so he's only arround 2 inches taller than her.
nona says on 15/Sep/14
@figo: Sonika Kaliraman is a wrestler and not an actor. However she is tall at 5'11" and also very huge at close to 85 kgs. She participated in one of the Khatron Ki Khiladi seasons and she was the only girl with another girl for a partner. Guess none of the guys wanted to partner a girl stronger than them.
sid says on 15/Sep/14
Sonam was looking as equal in height with akshay in song full volume of thank you movie. In that song sonam was barefoot and akshay was in shoes.. So this shows that sonam is much taller than other heroins. Also she was taller than aayushman in bewakoofian.
John says on 14/Sep/14
Hey guys!
Can somebody predict arjun kapoor's height?He looks 5'11 to me because next to 5'9(176cm) imran he only looks arround 2 inches taller.
And what about Vivek oberoi,he is listed as 5'10(177cm) but he looks much taller than Neha Sharma(5'9).He was even taller than her in high heels.

@dost- Agree with your assessment regarding Shweta Menon and Shilpa. From the Miss Femina video, it seems that Sushmita is 5'8-5'8.5, Shweta is 5'9, Francesca and Jesse are 5 '10 while Pooja and Karminder Kaur are 5'11.
Dost says on 13/Sep/14
@Sunny, I do agree that I think she is taller than 5'8, I'm guessing about 5'9 and Shilpa is 5'8. I have no explanation for why Shilpa looks so much shorter than Shweta in the video!
nona says on 12/Sep/14
@dost: thanks for the video post. Aishwarya & Namrata at 5'6" are by far the shortest. Pooja Batra at 5'11" is the tallest. Francesca Hart, Karminder Kaur & Jesse Randhawa are 5'10". Sushmita Sen & Shweta menon are 5'8". Karminder Kaur & Francesca Hart are the most well built girls amongst all on view and both weighed about 70 kgs back then. Aishwarya, Namrata & Sushmita looked about 55 kgs. Shweta weighed about 65 kgs and Pooja about 60 kgs.
Sunny says on 12/Sep/14
@Nona and @Dost- Sure Shweta Menon could be 5'8 but maybe that could mean that Shilpa is less than 5'8. You can see clearly in the scene that they are filmed through various angles and at the end of it they are standing close to each other. Shilpa barely is at Menon's eyebrows level. Sure Menon has boots on but a few seconds earlier you can see that they aren't that much high heeled boots. But the difference in their respective heights seems very much more significant than any advantage the boots could provide to Shweta Menon.

I think throughout the movie, Menon also seems almost as tall as Sunil Shetty while Shilpa, whether with high heels or not, never looks anywhere as tall as Sunil Shetty.
Figo says on 11/Sep/14
Noboby is discussing about sonika kaliraman she is more than siz feet tall i m sure she will dwarf any hero
Dost says on 11/Sep/14
I think Shweta is around 5'9. In Miss India 1994, she was taller than both Aishwarya and Sushmita Sen. Shilpa Shetty is about 5'8.

Watch this video: Click Here

There are lots of interesting observations as the clip includes: 5'7 Aishwarya, 5'8 Sushmita, 5'9 Shweta and then 5'10 Jesse Randhawa as well as 5'10+ Francesca Hart. Then we also see appearances from 5'11 Karminder Kaur, 5'11 Pooja Batra and 5'7 Namrata.

Highly recommend everyone to watch it!
nona says on 11/Sep/14
@Sunny: Shweta Menon was a Ms. India participant and was listed at 5'8", so she should be only as tall as Shilpa.
@Dost: Karminder Kaur is easily 5'11" & weighs 78 kgs and she clearly is so much taller & bigger than Shilpa who at that time weighed only 55 kgs
Sunny says on 10/Sep/14
@Dost- What would be your personal estimate on Shilpa and the other actress (Shweta Menon) height? Sure she has boots on while Shilpa is barefoot but they don't look like 4 inch heels boots while the difference in their height is very significant there.

I will try to check out the hospital scene you mentioned. Maybe I missed it.
Dost says on 9/Sep/14
@Sunny, that is from Prithvi and the other actress is Shweta Menon, who is reportedly about 5'8. IF you watch the rest of that movie, a few scenes earlier you will see the 5'10/5'11 Karminder Kaur dwarf Shilpa Shetty in a hospital scene.

@Figo: Shilpa Shetty has not lost any height, its just that compared to the younger taller actresses entering the industry she looks short. When Shilpa entered the industry except for Tabu & Pooja Batra all other actresses were not more than 5'6", so she appeared tall.

Check out this scene from a Shilpa Shetty movie. At from the 1'55'50 to the 1'59'00 mark, Shilpa is alongside another actress and the latter towers over her. Shilpa is barefoot there while the actress is in boots. But the difference is height is very significant.

Krish says on 8/Sep/14
I think that girls like Shilpa and Sonali Bendre looked quite at the time of their debuts. Their slim frame made them look even taller. But in today's times lots of girls will tower over them. I think Shilpa is slightly below 5'8 and lots of actresses today are taller than that.

I can say to nilufer welcome to tall actress club
Figo says on 7/Sep/14
Is it possible that shilpa shetty has lost a bit of height because when she entered the film industry she was much taller
Dost says on 7/Sep/14
I think Tabu is about 1cm taller than Shilpa, so in terms of feet/inches, maybe Tabu is about 5'8 1/2 and Shilpa is about 5'8. They've acted together in "Himmat" and "Tarkieb" and Tabu looks marginally taller in both. Check out this song from Himmat, at about 1:05 - 1:20. Tabu is in flats in this song, Shilpa in very small heels.

nona says on 6/Sep/14
@Krish: Tabu (5'9") is actually taller than Shilpa Shetty (5'8") by an inch but they look the same height because Tabu (80 kgs) is much bigger and broader then Shilpa (68 kgs). This is specially evident in their hips and shoulders where Tabu is huge.
nona says on 6/Sep/14
@aparash: Not only does this Nilufer look tall but she is huge. There is no mention of her height anywhere online but I guess she is around 5'9" and easily weighs about 80 kgs

@Figo, I'll give her 5'7.5" MAX. Yes she is broad and like Nona said, weighs a good amount. But I would not be including her in any discussion of the tallest actresses!

@krish: I agree with dost on the heights of shilpa shetty & karminder Kaur. As far as their weights go I would put shilpa's current weight at 68 kgs. Haven't seen karminder of late but during the Ms India contest she easily weighed around 75 kgs
Figo says on 15/Aug/14
Why is eveyone on this site estimating aishwarya to be short.she is 5.7 if she stands in a crowd she would be taller than seven out of ten guys
Alig says on 15/Aug/14
Awesome video short_aish....awesome comparison b/w yukta and priyanka at the end
Dost says on 15/Aug/14
Look at Pooja Batra stand eye to eye with the 5'11 (?) Mithun: Click Here

She has flats or barefoot throughout the song and Mithun is in 1" heels and they look the same!
Dost says on 15/Aug/14
My guesses are:

Shilpa Shetty: 5'8
Karminder Kaur: 5'10.5
Pooja Batra: 5'10.5
Yukta: 5'11.5 to 6'0

@dost-Thanks for pic of Karminder Kaur and Shilpa Shetty. The difference in height is impressive there. What would be your estimate of their respective heights?
@nona- can you please give us your estimate of Karminder and Shilpa's respective height and weight please?
Dost says on 14/Aug/14
She's definitely more than 5'10. I think she's 5'11 to 6'0, despite what she may say.
Enginner says on 14/Aug/14
Nice video on Yukta Mookhey. She reveals her heights as somewhere between 5'10" and 5'11".

@short_aish: How do you know the girl near Yukta is Aishwarya, it could be Diya Mirza also. Anyways there is atleast 8" difference in that pic between Yukta and the other girl. Yukta infact towers over most Ms. India winners including Sushmita who at 5'9" is the tallest.
Figo says on 13/Aug/14
Does anybody has yukta mookheys picture with amitabh bachchan,it would be interesting to compare them
short_aish says on 13/Aug/14

just look at that...how short aish is looking in front of yukta...yukta can easily lift her like a baby..
Dost says on 13/Aug/14
Tried to post this before.

Karminder with Shilpa Shetty in Prithvi: Click Here

I think she's about 5'10 to 5'11. Saw her in a pic with Pooja Batra at Miss India 1993 and they were pretty much the same height.
Figo says on 11/Aug/14
Karminder kaur used to come on a serial on dd metro which had puneet issar,shahbaz khan,hemant birje and other tall well built guys and believe me she looked as big as those guys
nona says on 11/Aug/14
@figo: Karminder Kaur sort of disappeared after the Ms. India. She is 5'11" and along with Pooja Batra who is 6'0" dwarfed the winner Namrata Shirodkar who stands 5'6". One more thing about Karminder is that she was a basketballer and as such was very well built with long strong legs. She easily weighed about 72 kgs during the Ms. India contest.
Figo says on 11/Aug/14
Sonam kapoors suster rhea is also very tall
short_aish says on 8/Aug/14
aishwarya is looking very tiny in front of women in pink dress...may be that is because of camera angle...but does anyone has photo of this??

Where is karminder kaur?she dwarfed sunil shetty in shastra
Figo says on 6/Aug/14
There was an acrtress named pooja madan who used to appear in zee serial amanat.she was quite tall and stocky
nona says on 6/Aug/14
@figo: Jwala Gutta (6'0", 83 kgs), Krishna Poonia (6'1", 85 kgs) & Seema Punia (6'1", 94 kgs) were 3 of the tallest & biggest women in India's Commonwealth Games team. They are not only taller and heavier than all other female athletes but also 80% of the male athletes. Seema Punia & krishna Poonia are discus throwers and need to be big and strong but Jwala being a badminton player is huge and considering her size she moves very well on court. Her partner Ashwini at only 5'6" & 60 kgs looks like a small kid nest to Jwala
nona says on 5/Aug/14
@fcb: Thanks for the comparison video. Only proves that Yukta is by far the tallest and heaviest actress ever to grace Bollywood. She is easily 6'1" and going by that video should be about 85 kgs
Figo says on 5/Aug/14
There was a photo today in newsapaper in which jwala gutta stood alongsides other medalist.and my my jwala totally dwarfed everyone else

@Figo: Rakshanda Khan is 5'8", which is tall but nowhere near Yukta (6'1") or Karishma Tanna (5'11"). Rakshanda is also very well built with nice broad shoulders and wide hips and easily weighs close to 75 kgs.
Krish says on 4/Aug/14
Usha Bachani is a tall woman. Maybe 5'8 or above. In a scene in Dulhan Hum Lejayenge, she slaps Karishma sending the latter tumbling down and later on, when Karishma tries to slap her, Bachani barely blinks and this prompts the puny Karishma to run away. The height difference between them is easily around 4 inches or more.
JV says on 3/Aug/14
In Kyonki saas bhi kabhi bahu thi, Smriti irani 5'8. Gauri looked taller than her(5'9). Rakshanda khan(5'9.5) taller than Gauri Pradhan & Karishma tanna(5'11) taller than Rakshanda Khan

Another tall woman is usha bachani who appears as a vamp in movies and tv series.watch dulhan hum le jayenge,karishma and salman looked like small kids infront of her
Figo says on 1/Aug/14
Does anybody knows priyanka gandhis height.she looks very tall
Dost says on 31/Jul/14
I think I said this earlier, but speaking of tall actresses in serials, check out Shireen Mirza in "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein". She stars as Simmi and is very tall. Looks to be about 5'10 in flats easily!
Figo says on 31/Jul/14
She appeared in few episodes opposite r madhavan.she played the role of manoj pahwas daughter whose name was bhamra in the serial.she would be around 6.2 in height.honestly she would dwarf yukta and karishma tanna easily
Krish says on 30/Jul/14
@Figo- Rakshanda Khan was the actress. It was practically at the time of her debut. A young Nikki Aneja was the other actress. However, Rakshanda isn't that tall by today's standards. She was leaner back then and looked quite tall by the standards of the 90s. She would have been taller than the likes of Raveena, Mamta, Kajol or Karishma and maybe as tall as Shilpa or Sonali Bendre but shorter than the likes of Tabu, Sushmita, Kunika or Pooka Batra back then. I guess she is at around 5'7.5 which is still quite tall for an Indian actress. But definitely nowhere near Yukhta's height.
rahul says on 30/Jul/14
Figo was she regular or just appeared in only few episode
Figo says on 29/Jul/14
I searched everywhere but that link is not available.someone must have known about that actress.i am sure she would dwarf yukta mookhey easily

Guys, Anu is 5'8.5" and weighs 53 kgs whereas as Kat is 5'9" & weighs 68 kgs. Both are extremely beautiful in their own ways. Anu has a more boyish figure with no waist:hip defnition and stick like legs wheras Kat is extremely curvy with a tiny waist, huge hips and thick legs
Dost says on 5/Jul/14
It's confusing because we can't see the bottom half of their torso, what footwear they are wearing (both seemed to switch shoes sometime during this event) or where they are standing.

The conclusive pics are the ones I posted and the first one by Subha which show their full body...

Katrina is marginally taller, I actually don't think it's even 1/2 inch.
Subha says on 4/Jul/14
Those pictures are from same event, its confusing

Anushka looks much taller than katrina

nona says on 1/Jul/14
@Dost: Your pics are clinching evidence that Katrina is taller than Anushka by atleast 0.5". I would put Anushka at 5'8.5" & Katrina at 5'9". The other very noticable thing from your pis is how thin Anushka is compared to Katrina. Anushka's legs are half the size of katrina's
Bablu says on 1/Jul/14
Shireen Mirza from the serial "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" is very tall. Comparing her with the stars of the show, who also appeared alongside Bollywood actor Siddharth Malhotra, I would estimate Shireen to be in the 5'10 to 5'11 range.
Ricky says on 1/Jul/14
@Riya. Where's your observation about bollywood actors?. Specially for salman khan.
Dost says on 27/Jun/14
@Riya...Anushka taller than Katrina, I dunno about that:

Anushka's heels are bigger than Kats yet she appears slightly shorter: Click Here

Same day when they both had flats on: Click Here
Riya says on 26/Jun/14
I'm 5'9" myself, and I've actually met a lot of Bollywood celebs. This is what I concluded from my observations:
Aish-5'7" (like the article states)
Rani-5'3"
Preity-5'5"
Kareena: 5'6" (I was suprised-always thought she'd be taller)
Bipasha: 5'7.5"
Priyanka: 5'6" (she was wearing about 3" heals and was the same height as me)
Lara: 5'8"
Katrina: 5'8.5"
Vidya: 5'3.5-5'4" (her shoes were flat, but not completely flat)
Kangana: 5'7"
Sonam: 5'10"
Deepika: 5'9"
Anushka: 5'9.5" (she said she's shorter than Kat, but I doubt it-considering she was slightly taller than me.)
Jacqueline: 5'8"
Shruti: 5'8"
Shraddha: 5'6"
Sonakshi: 5'8"
Ileana-5'6.5" (I always thought she'd be taller around 5'9", but everyone said she's petite at only about 5'4", but I'd say she's more near the middle considering she was about the same height as me in about 2" heels.)
Parineeti: 5'7" (I was actaully shocked! She always looked so petite to me, but she was quite tall in real.)
Nargis-5'9.5"
Diana: 5'10" (was easily an inch taller than me)
Vaani: 5'7.5" (was just teensy bit taller than Parineeti)
Alia: 5'5" (Again, I was shocked. She looks only about 5'1" or 5'2", but she's actually above average height.)
Kriti: 5'9" (Saw her from far-she looked only an inch shorter than Tiger who's apparently 5'10".)
Kiara-5'7"
Deeksha-5'8.5" (just met last week btw!!)
Dost says on 23/Jun/14
@ghangas: great find. They are both in no heels and that woman looks at least an inch taller than Katrina. I think she must be around 5'10...

Dost says on 19/Jun/14
Malaika looks way shorter than Deepika. The woman who looks close to Deepika appears to be Kalki Koechlin. I think Kalki must be about 5'6 to 5'7, she was shorter than Katrina Kaif in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

Guys any idea of as to Alia Bhatt's height and weight? She is listed at 5'6" & 54 Kgs but appears to be only about 5'2". Her weight though seems correct.

Quote from Sonakshi Sinha in an interview "I am 5'8" tall and have a very healthy Indian frame". Agree with the healthy frame bit but the height is a false claim. She is at most 5'6" but weighs in at a massive 75 kgs with huge shoulders and broad hips.
Ricky says on 20/May/14
I agree...she is 169 cm...because shahrukh 170 cm(5'6.75)
tiny says on 19/May/14
Agree with Aparash & Dost that Kriti Sanon is 5'10". She is as tall as Diana Penty but is much more healthy and weighs about 70 kgs compared to Diana's 50 kgs
Dost says on 18/May/14
She seems slightly taller than Katrina Kaif if you take into account pics of Kat and Aamir. The 5'10" sounds about right, taking her to the top of the current crop of actresses along with Diana Penty.

@zig.zag: agree with you on Amrita Rao, she is really tiny but very cute. Regarding the strongest though Sameera is up there, I think she is no match against the likes of Sonakshi (5'6", 75 kgs) and Huma Quereshi (5'8", 80 kgs)

@John: U are right about Namitha being shorter than Anushka Shetty. Namitha is 5'8" whereas Anushka is 5'10". Moreover because of Namitha's bulk (she weighs close to 90 kgs) she looks even shorter compared to the perfectly built Anushka (weighs 75 kgs)
John says on 3/May/14
@ss- Namitha is probably 5'8 to 5'8.5 at best. She is shorter than Anushka Shetty in Billa. Watch this pic from an event, for e.g:

Click Here
nona says on 3/May/14
@ss: I think that Anushka Shetty (5'10", 78 kgs)is the strongest as apart from being tall and well built she is a yoga teacher and knows how to channelise her strength. Sameera (5'7", 70 kgs) is a close second as she has broad shoulders and thick muscular arms. Deepika (5.8", 65 kgs) as you say is surprisingly strong for her thin frame. Another girl who has to be very strong is Katrina kaif (5'9", 72 kgs) as she has a very strong lower body with amazingly muscular legs as you can see in Dhoom 3

talking about the strength in Bollywood actress ...
sameera reddy is probably the strongest...having muscular arms and compact body(she lifted krk effortlessly in bigboss)..followed by deepika as she belongs to the sports background..(lifted imran khan in movie)..
then actress from south like anushka shetty (lifted prabhas, ravi teza)

Thanks Alig, Tabu looks just as tall as Ruby but hard to see from the camera angle.

Sid - That is a bad picture, there are others out there where the two look the same height, if you subtract the huge mound of hair sitting on top of Deepika's head.

@ss - agreed, Lisa claims 5'9 and in "Aisha" she was head-to-head with Sonam Kapoor and at times, looked slightly taller!
nona says on 26/Apr/14
Guys, what are your thoughts on Alia Bhatt the current big ticket girl in Bollywood. She is listed at 5'6" & 55 kgs but looks very compact and dainty to be so tall and heavy. She looks only abotu 5'2" & 45 kgs....what are your views??
