Archie chose to propose the glamorous and spoilt Veronica instead of the 'best friend' Betty disappointing many of the Archie comics fans. There has always been a hidden a conflict between the two types. While our heart shouts out for the nice 'n' cute next door girl the eyes look out for the 'sinful'. Who do you think wins the game? With many of the epic love stories coming out of India and also from Indias very own Bollywood, we thought of finding out 'Bettys' and 'Veronicas' of India.
It looks like
past. We take a look at some of the recent and most prominent ones:
Although we just have two movies to refer her from, this leggy beauty is Daddy's girl. She is the sweet wholesome hometown girl who will charm you with her warm smile and innocent looks. From 'Sawaariyan's black suits to colourful yet subtle attire of 'Delhi 6' makes Sonam very approachable. Betty, we would say!
You may call her Betty, but the Betty who gets her man. Deepika has everything going for her. A rich dad, a family name which speaks of glory and the glam doll looks which has set many a hearts a flutter. And all this minus any controversy. From raw acting of 'Om Shanti Om' to a more mature independent girl of 'Bachna aye Haseeno', Deepika's career is set to go places. Guess what this possessive Betty doesn't let anything come in between her man and her, not even a kissing scene. A very secure Betty!
The new found hottie Amrita Rao, is Bollywood's girl-next-door, unlike the others in the industry she has never been found wrapped in controversies of love. She goes about her business and would probably want to head home after a long day at work. With her role of a best friend in 'Main hun na' and the sweet girl of 'Vivah', Amrita Rao could be the eternal Betty.
We would think if Archie was a Bollywood movie, Veronica's role would definitely go to her. With her attractive looks and oomph Kareena looks carved out to be Veronica. From 'Poo' to 'devoted lover of 'Omkara' to 'size zero of Tashan' al her moves have worked well for her. Blinded by her looks, everyone completely forgot the fact that she dumped the favourite chocolate boy of Bollywood Shahid Kapur. And of course now she has none other than the 'Chote Nawab', Saif Ali Khan swooning over her. Undoubtedly Veronica!
We know her from the 'Slumdog Millionaire' as Latika and of course from the red carpet of Cannes in a designer evening dress. She suddenly shot to fame but the simple charm on her face makes her the girl next door. She has been the talk of B-Town and has a promising career that lies ahead. She is currently dating Dev Patel and the two seem happy in love. Was there a news of her dumping someone? Did this Betty get her Archie now?
Soha Ali Khan:
She comes from a royal family and is known for her simplicity. And also the girl who would enjoy with a bunch of friends in 'Rang de Basanti'. She has managed to achieve a lot in her career and also has attracted attention in the right way. Soha is definitely the talented Betty of Bollywood .
This is what you call a perfect combination of Betty and Veronica. Great looks, world title, a rocking career and even more rocking personal life. We are sure that even Veronica would be jealous of her. When she broke up with the Bollywood brat Salman Khan, her fans sympathised with her, the same happened with Vivek Oberoi too before Ash settled to a happy married life as the Bachchan Bahu. Does that remind you of Ronnie's flings with Jughead and Reggie before settling for Archie? But this Veronica shows a lot of Betty after her marriage.
'I want my diary before marriage to be clean' that's what Katrina said at Koffee with Karan. With her unbeatable looks and good choice of roles, Kat has travelled the distance to success pretty fast. Kats and Salman seem to share a great bond and she has always been there for him and stood by him through thick and thin. We donâ€™t know the future, but she does look like the Betty with Veronica looks.
Lara Dutta was crowned Miss Universe in 2000 which led to her appointment as a UNFPA Goodwill Ambassador in 2001. Add to that a military upbringing and you have the perfect recipe for Veronica in Lara. She has dumped her long time beau Dino Morea. All this put together, we think will make Lara a good bet.
Very dignified and yet fun, Asin is making all the right choices. She made a mark in south cinema and now Bollywood is eating out of her hands. She is the kind of girl you would depend on take home to mamma. Even if she is the Betty, she is definitely the smarter Betty
