Bollywood industry has proved that size-zero actresses are just adding on to their acting skills and that it is their quality of work that leads them to success.

From Vidya Balan to Bhumi Pednekar, the promising heroines showed everybody that weight is not the key to success in Bollywood.

Here is a List of Actresses Who Proved that Weight is not 'Key to Success' in Bollywood:

Bhumi Pednekar

Recently, Ayushmann Khurrana starrer "Dum Laga Ke Haisha" launched Bhumi Pednekar as the new face of Yash Raj Films. The movie is doing well at the box office and the actress is appreciated for her terrific performance. Pednekar's entry into the film industry would encourage plus-size actresses, underlining that in Bollywood only talent matters.

Sonakshi Sinha

Sonakshi Sinha made her debut with "Dabangg" opposite Salman Khan who was also her mentor. The actress, who used to be fat, lost weight to enter the industry, but still looked chubby. Though people criticised her curvy figure, she slammed them with her performances.

Sinha has once answered her haters through Instagram saying, "To all those who keep commenting on my weight, whether it's a full picture, or a close up where you can't see jack. Take a good look at this picture. Now get this: 1) this ain't ever gonna be me. 2) get over it. 3) I wish u could see which finger I hold up for shallow and idiotic people like yourself." RIP Haters."

Vidya Balan

Since Vidya Balan made her debut in "Parineeta", she has always impressed viewers with her acting talent. People has also criticised her for her weight and still continues to do so. But Balan has shut everybody's mouth with her hit films like "The Dirty Picture", "Kahaani", "Paa", "Ishqiya", "No One Killed Jessica" and many more.

Parineeti Chopra

Parineeti Chopra did her first film as a supporting actress in "Ladies vs Ricky Bahl" and bagged Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. Despite being curvy, the diva garnered success in her career within in a few years. Her performances in "Shudh Desi Romance" and "Hasee Toh Phasee" were also appreciated.

Huma Qureshi

Huma Qureshi surprised viewers with her debut in "Gangs of Wasseypur – Part 1 and Part 2" in a supporting role. Her bold performance made her one of the promising actresses in Bollywood. Even in her recent release, "Badlapur" with Varun Dhawan, she proved that size does not matter in Bollywood.
