B-town ladies and films with strong female characters had a fantastic run in 2018. From Padmaavat to Pad Man, Pari, Raazi, Stree, Hichki, Veere Di Wedding, Soorma, Kedarnath and so on; each and every film not only got appreciation, but also raked in the moolah at the box office. The ladies gave a good takkar to the men and looks like this year is not going to be any different. With an interesting line up of movies, 2019 witnessed the best January till now. Yami Gautam’s Uri: The Surgical Strike has raked in Rs 200 crore till now. Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, on the other hand, has also performed well at the box office.

Amrita Rao also made a brilliant comeback with Thackeray, which won a lot of accolades for her, apart from earning a decent amount at the ticket window. Though she gave a tremendous performance, the movie had a sub-par run at the domestic box office. However, it was enough to make her a part of our list of highest grossing actresses of January 2019. Check out the whole list right here!

1. Yami Gautam

Movie: Uri – The Surgical Strike

Box Office Collection: Rs 200 crore*

Aditya Dhar’s Uri: The Surgical Strike revolved around the devastating Uri attacks and India’s fightback with a surgical strike in Pakistan. While Vicky Kaushal killed it with his performance, Yami Gautam’s intense act also won a lot of hearts. The story, the execution and the message were the major factors in the film’s success. And it has made Yami the highest grossing actress of the month too!

2. Kangana Ranaut

Movie: Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi

Box Office Collection: Rs 75 crore*

A biopic on the life of a revolutionary freedom fighter like Rani Lakshmibai was exciting. But the fact that it had Kangana in it, playing the titular character as well as co-directing it, meant audiences went to watch it in large numbers. The story and grandeur were loved and Kangana as usual was praised for her act. The clash with Thackeray did affect the movie, but it has earned Rs 75 crore till now, making Kangana the runner up in our list.

 

3. Amrita Rao

Movie: Thackeray

Box Office Collection: Rs 20 crore

Amrita Rao has been away from the big screen since a while now. But her return with Thackeray as Meenatai Thackeray (Balasaheb Thackeray’s wife) was really impressive. She emoted the character well and people loved her in the movie. With the biopic raking in Rs 20 crore at the domestic box office, she comes in at number three on our list.

 

So that was our list of the top three grossing actresses of January 2019. But who was your favourite? Share with us your thoughts in the comments section below! Also stay tuned to Cine Blitz as we get you all the updates from the world of Bollywood right here.
