Women who have moved us, shaken us and made us smile.

Gayatri Moodliar

Priyanka Chopra Jonas In what can only be deemed a whirlwind year, the global icon grabbed mindspace—and, we’re not just talking about her nuptials. The current Hot 100 winner invested in tech through Bumble, the dating app built on the premise that women will initiate conversations in heterosexual matches, bringing the service to India and helping to ease safety concerns associated with other dating apps. She has also partnered with Facebook to spread awareness and empower women, and to reduce instances of cyber bullying—a 2014 Ipsos study placed India at the top of cyber bullying list.

Deepika Padukone

A 2018 study regarding mental health in India found that most respondents associated mental disorders with a stigma. The study, conducted by Deepika Padukone’s Live Laugh Love Foundation, showed how our former Covergirl has been upfront about her own battle against depression and anxiety, and has made serious strides in terms of spreading awareness.

Our debutant November Covergirl is the dominant binge-watching actor, and her stellar performances have made sure she isn’t boxed into a single category. Plus, she really turned heads with her elegant and sexy Maxim turn.

Disha Patani
