However, Padukone is certainly not the first Bollywood actress to don a police uniform. Over the years, several actresses have played cops on the screen, leaving a lasting impact on the audience. In this article, let's have a look at some of them.

Hema Malini - Inspector Durga Devi Singh (Andhaa Kaanoon)

Directed by T. Rama Rao, the 1983 action film 'Andhaa Kaanoon' stars Rajinikanth and Amitabh Bachchan - two of India's greatest superstars. Yet, Hema Malini as Inspector Durga Devi Singh stands out and enthralls us like no other.

It was during her peak, and she shattered the stereotypes of the industry by playing a cop on the screen. She broke away from the mannerisms that she was known for and brought enormous depth and authenticity to her performance. It's worth noting that her character inspired countless women across the country.

Priyanka Chopra - SI Abha Mathur (Jai Gangaajal)

'Jai Gangaajal' is a sequel to the 2003 crime film 'Gangaajal', and stars Priyanka Chopra as SI Abha Mathur of the Indian Police Service (IPS).

Abha is a strong, honest, and determined police officer who can go to any extent to bring justice. And Chopra, known for her versatility, nailed the role completely. She brilliantly articulated the mannerisms of the character and showcased her inner conflicts and struggles. Whether it's anger, compassion, strength, or vulnerability - she explored all the emotions perfectly on the screen.

Tabu - IG Meera Deshmukh (Drishyam)

'Drishyam' is an edge-of-the-seat thriller, and one of its best aspects is inarguably Tabu's performance as Inspector General Meera Deshmukh.

Precisely, Tabu's character here is complex and has several layers. She seems an antagonist, and yet, has her own struggles and vulnerabilities that make us empathize with her. And Tabu nailed it exactly here!

She approached the role with the utmost honesty and portrayed it so brilliantly that we couldn’t take our eyes off her. Her interactions with Vijay Salgaonkar (Devgn's character, the protagonist) are particularly captivating, leaving us in awe. From her gestures to body language to expressions and more - it's a masterclass for every acting enthusiast.

Besides these, the list also includes Rani Mukerji as Shivani Shivaji Roy (Mardaani), Neha Dhupia as ACP Catherine "Cathy" Alvarez (A Thursday), and Sushmita Sen as ACP Malvika Chauhan (Samay: When Time Strikes).
