Mera Shikar is a 1988 Indian Hindi action film directed by Keshu Ramsay. The film stars Dimple Kapadia, Kabir Bedi and Navin Nischol in lead roles. Dialogues of this movie became a hit and therefore audio cassettes of dialogue were released. It was written by Iqbal Durrani. Subhash K. Jha of The Indian Express called the film "extraordinarily adroit entertainer" "one of the most engaging action films", and wrote, "with daring defiance, the film snowballs ideas that challenge its common objective (elemental entertainment). It would be a pity if the film is lumped with the run-of-the-mill potboiler." He further wrote that "unlike Zakhmi Aurat it does not degenerate into sleazy sensationalism". Referring to the transformation of Bijli, he wrote, "The metamorphosis of the frisky Bijli into the ferocious fighter is achieved in the film with unusual restraint through smooth editing, crisp camerawork cuttingly ironic dialogues, and of course Dimple's trevails both physical as well as cerebral."

Zakhmi Aurat is a 1988 Indian Hindi movie starring Dimple Kapadia and Raj Babbar and directed by Avtar Bhogal. Kapadia played Kiran Dutt, a police officer who is subject to gang rape and, when the judicial system fails to convict the criminals, unites with other rape victims to castrate the rapists in revenge. A financial success, the film opened to a polarised reaction from critics and further attracted wide coverage for its lengthy and brutal rape scene involving Kapadia. Khalid Mohamed of The Times of India noted Kapadia's "power packed performance" but criticised the rape sequence as "utter lasciviousness" and "vulgarity spattering through the screen". Feminist magazine Manushi panned its low cinematic quality, including the absurdity of the action scenes and the "ugly kind of titillation" in the rape scene, but believed it "stays closer to women's experience" than other films of its sort; the review was particularly approving of Kapadia's work: "What really carries the film through is Dimple Kapadia's performance—low key, moving and charming without being at all clinging or seductive. She brings a conviction to her role that is rare among Bombay heroines." In later years, The Times of India labelled it a "B-grade movie" though it noted Kapadia's convincing portrayal of "anguish and bitterness at being denied justice". M.L. Dhawan from The Tribune, while documenting the famous Hindi films of 1988, praised Kapadia for "proving her mettle as an actress of intensity and passion." Subhash K. Jha, however, wrote in 2002 that its box-office outcome notwithstanding, Zakhmi Aurat "turned into quite an embarrassment for its leading lady".

Dimple Kapadia is an Indian actress who predominantly appears in Hindi films. She was discovered by Raj Kapoor at age 14, who gave her the title role in his teen romance Bobby (1973), opposite his son Rishi Kapoor. The film became a massive commercial success and made her an overnight star.

Released in 1985, Saagar earned her a second Best Actress award at Filmfare, and she went on to establish herself as one of the leading actresses of Hindi cinema in the 1980s and early 1990s. The early roles she played following her return included the Hitchcockian thriller Aitbaar (1985), for which she received positive reviews, and the commercially successful action films Arjun (1985) and Janbaaz (1986). During this period, she acted in several films in South India, which she admitted to having made for financial gain and dismissed their quality.
