Bollywood can imitate Hollywood from time to time, but there are things in which no one can beat indian cinema.
The entrance scenes of the film’s main characters are one of those rare things that no one does better than Bollywood. If the hero often arrives standing on a bicycle or fighting a tiger, the heroine’s entrance scene is no less so. They are dreamy, dramatic and filmy AF.
Recently on a Reddit thread, Desis discussed the best female entrance scenes that have ever existed in Hindi cinema which were even better than the hero entrance.

Here are the most iconic entrance scenes from a female character in Bollywood films, according to fans:
