Turning 40 is like achieving a milestone - especially in India, and more so for a celebrity! While it's not much in other fields, in the acting industry, it's very difficult to land up with a concrete and meaty role if you are older.
As much as the glamour industry is changing, perception about age is also changing as far as viewers are concerned. While stars like Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and Saif Ali Khan to name a few are well over 40 and flourishing in their career, actresses have a far lesser career span as compared to actors.
However, actresses like Sridevi, Juhi Chawla and Madhuri Dixit to name a few are few heroines who have proved that they can still have a successful career in Bollywood.
