Bollywood actresses have not only captured millions of hearts with their looks this year, but also with their brilliant performances on-screen.

From Deepika Padukone's "Piku" to Kangana Ranaut's "Tanu Weds Manu Returns", these divas have topped the list of best actresses in 2015 so far.

However, the second half of this year will also see several promising actresses, from Alia Bhatt to Kajol, who might turn out to be a tough competition for others.

Meanwhile, below are the top five actresses of this year (so far), who have won hearts with their terrific performances in their films.

Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut had already made a mark with the success of "Queen", which made her win several awards. The National Award winner again proved her talent when she appeared in "Tanu Weds Manu Returns" in double role. The film crossed the ₹100 crore mark as well. The actress is now leading the list of top actresses in Bollywood.

Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone won many hearts when she donned a simple avatar in "Piku", where she appeared alongside Amitabh Bachchan. The father–daughter relationship story touched the audience and Deepika was appreciated for her great work in Shoojit Sircar's film.

Anushka Sharma

Anushka Sharma surprised viewers with her brilliant performance in "NH10". She even turned producer for this film, which was a hit at the box office. The thriller flick brought out the "PK" actress' grey side that she carried with perfection throughout the movie.

Shraddha Kapoor

Shraddha Kapoor is one of the leading actresses in Bollywood at present and has given back-to-back hits. From "Aashiqui 2" to "ABCD 2", her films have grossed more than ₹100 crore at box offices worldwide.

Bhumi Pednekar

Unlike other slim Bollywood actresses, Bhumi Pednekar stole the show in her debut film "Dum Laga Ke Haisha" despite being overweight. The story of the unmatched couple turned out to be a hit, in which the actress gave a mind-blowing performance. She captured hearts with her acting, which overshadowed her weight.
