There have been many times when a particular character in a movie inspired us in real life too. We can connect with those characters and take major life goals from them. Here are 7 free-spirited female characters that gave us major life goals.
Geet from Jab We Met
Geet played by Kareena Kapoor in the movie Jab We Met is one of the most iconic characters this millennium. Her zeal for life inspires us to live life to the fullest and make the most out of it. Just like how the character of Aditya (Shahid Kapoor) gets inspired by her and turns his life for good; we are also quite mesmerized by the character of Geet which Kareen Kapoor played beautifully.
Aisha Banerjee from Wake UP Sid
Aisha Banerjee in the movie Wake Up Sid is an aspiring writer who comes to Mumbai to pursue her dreams. Konkona Sen Sharma played the character of Aisha and nailed it with her brilliant performance. Aisha is a fine example of an independent girl who is chasing her dreams without compromising anything. She inspired Sid (Ranbir Kapoor)to get out of his comfort zone and follow his passion for photography.
Shashi Gadbole from English Winglish
Late actress Sridevi made her comeback in Bollywood with a bravura performance in the movie English Winglish. Directed by Gauri Shinde , the movie captures the subtle patriarchal quirks that run through Indian families’ blood. Sridevi played the role of housewife Shashi God bole with such dignity that the film was able to criticize the family members without entirely demonizing them.
Rani from Queen
Queen was a milestone movie in Kangana Ranaut’s career that changed her career for good. She won many awards for his beautiful portrayal of Rani, a typical Delhi girl who comes of age while travelling Europe solo. When her fiancé leaves her just before their marriage because he thinks she is not fit for the lifestyle he is seeking, it breaks Rani’s heart but she decides to break free and create her identity. It was a beautiful movie about female empowerment while giving us major life goals including a solo trip to Europe.
Veera Tripathi from Highway
There is one speciality about the female characters in Imtiaz Ali’s movies and it’s that he makes his female characters independent with a mind of their own. They are not just for decorative purpose but play an important role in the happenings of the movie. Alia Bhatt in just her second movie got to play a character like Veera in Highway who has many layers and Alia played it beautifully. A girl traumatized by a childhood experience, the movie beautifully portrays her journey to find her inner self.
