Women telling stories is the need of the hour, and we are blessed with some powerhouse actresses-turned-producers who back raw, impactful, and brilliant dramas. Their glory shines not just in front of the cameras, but also behind it. Taking challenges on and off screens, these actors have all our hearts. Here’s presenting the list of boss ladies who we love and adore for their brilliant work in the film industry.

Shweta Tripathi 

Everyone’s favourite, Shweta Tripathi will soon venture into production with an untitled horror drama. The brilliant actress aims to produce projects that are thought-provoking yet entertaining. As a producer, we hear she is working on backing rather gritty and visceral narratives with stories that offer hope. 

Alia Bhatt 

Ruling the screens with Gangubai Kathiawadi, Alia Bhatt has wrapped her first production titled Darlings, starring Shefali Shah and Vijay Varma. With her home banner, Eternal Sunshine Production, the actress wants to give a platform to young voices of India and support new-age talent, from writers to actors. 

Deepika Padukone 

Deepika Padukone turned into a producer with a path-breaking film, Chhapaak. She also made headlines for backing the ambitious biopic on Kapil Dev, 83. While the superstar is on a hunt to produce powerful stories, she aims to revolutionise the production space with her innovative thoughts of employing the Hollywood structure. 

Taapsee Pannu

A self-made actor, Taapsee Pannu is often regarded as the ‘hero’ of her own films. Launching her production house, Outsiders Films, the actor has started working on her first project Blurr with Gulshan Devaiah. As the name suggests, she wishes to back the new talent from across the nation who has no connection in the Indian film industry. 

Dia Mirza

An actress, an environmentalist, and a producer – Dia Mirza never fails to surprise us. She turned producer with her home banner Born Free Entertainment in 2011, almost a decade back. Later, she became the force behind the female-led film, Bobby Jasoos, starring Vidya Balan in the lead. Recently, she made headlines for her OTT project, Mind the Malhotras.
