Today’s Bollywood Actresses Don’t Impress M. F. Husain

Acclaimed artist M. F. Husain isn’t terribly impressed by today’s generation of Bollywood actresses. In an interview with Mid Day, he got candid about the following actresses:

Barbara Mori — “A few days ago, I saw someone called Barbara Mori from Brazil or Mexico. I was horrified! Why cast her when so many of our girls are far more beautiful and talented?”

Kangna Ranaut — “She looked ghostly in Kites. Kangna had so much white make-up, she looked as if she had applied chalk all over her face.”

Amrita Rao — “I liked her very much in Vivaah. Just one more movie… phir woh bhi khatam ho gayee kya? Maybe she just didn’t find a manager who could guide her career properly.”

Katrina Kaif — “She’s zero in acting but she is beautiful, not bad.”

Priyanka Chopra — “She’s all about imaging. If she gets a good role, she’s good. People liked her in Fashion and Kaminey but she’s not my type of heroine.”

Kareena Kapoor — “I wonder why people like Kareena Kapoor. Bilkul matchstick hai. She has come to destroy Saif Ali Khan and go away.”

He does have some nice things to say about Vidya Balan and Ranbir Kapoor, though. Read the entire interview here.
