Some of the talented and finest Bollywood actresses, including Kajol, Raveena Tandon and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, had created a buzz when they entered the film industry. But for the past few years they have been staying away from the silver screen, in order to take care of their family and children.
Though these actresses have been in the limelight through endorsement deals and reality shows, audiences have been waiting for them to make a comeback on the big screen.
Here is the list of B-Town actresses who are yet to make a comeback:
Kajol took a break from films after the birth of her first child in 2001. She returned to the silver screen after a gap of six years with Kunal Kohli's "Fanaa", which turned out to be the blockbuster hit. After that she did a few cameo appearances in several films. Kajol's last prominent roles were in "My Name is Khan" and "We Are Family", both in 2010.
However, the actress recently said that she will soon make a second comeback.

Several reports claimed that the actress would make a comeback with husband Abhishek in "Happy Anniversary" but the couple denied the news. The actress, who is busy taking care of her daughter Aaradhya, has said that she has been reading scripts but has not finalised anything.
