  • Ahilyabai Holkar was an iconic queen who was also known for her fair administration.
  • Here are the top 5 actresses who can give justice to the role of Ahilya on the big screen.

Punyashlok Ahilyabai is currently a serial based on the life of Maratha queen Ahilyabai Holkar that airs every weekday on Sony Television. The evolution of a young Ahilya as a child from a poor family to a warrior queen and administrator has been quite mesmerizing. The way she is shown capturing her enemies and leading her army from the front while simultaneously taking care of her two children makes one wonder who can be most suitable to play Ahilyabai if it is made into a Bollywood movie for the big screen.

Kangana Ranaut

Obviously after Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and Thalaivi, fans would love to see Kangana Ranaut play the role of Ahilyabai. The Queen of Bollywood has been pretty impressive in both these biopics and her look as Indira Gandhi from her upcoming film Emergency has also received appreciation. So Kangana should definitely be on the list.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Be it acing the role of Rajasthani princess in Ashutosh Gowarikar’s Jodhaa Akbar or her dynamic and impressive look from Mani Ratnam’s upcoming movie Ponniyan Selvan, Ash has all the grace, beauty, and talent to give justice to the iconic character of Ahilyabai on the big screen.

Anushka Shetty

The Southern diva who is currently not very active in the film world has rocked some epic traditional characters like Devsena in Baahubali and in the titular role of Bhaagamathie. She is known for some stellar performances in Southern films and has enough maturity and understanding to give justice to the character of Ahilyabai on the big screen.

Next, she will be seen portraying the famous mythological character of Sita in Om Raut-helmed movie Adipurush starring Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan.

Priyanka is getting good offers from Hollywood and currently has only one Bollywood movie-Jee Le Zaraa with Alia and Katrina. But no one can forget her role as Kashi Bai in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani where the desi girl played a typical Maharashtrian royal queen. So PeeCee can be an ideal choice to play the typical Maratha queen from the Holkar dynasty.
