Usually, in Tollywood heroine’s career span is far less compared to male stars. Very less number of heroines could survive for more than five years and several heroines are opting to do sister or aunt roles, when offers have dried up for female lead roles. Here are the heroines with over 10 years of experience in the industry and are still making waves.
1. Anushka Shetty:
The tall lady had debuted to Tollywood way back in 2005 with Nagarjuna co-starred Super. She has acted alongside most of the top stars in south industry, including Chiranjeevi and Rajinikanth. She is currently part of SS Rajamouli’s most awaited film Baahubali: The Conclusion, Suriya’s Singham 3, Nagarjuna’s devotional film Om Namo Venkatesaya and a female centric film Bhagmati.
2. Tamannah Bhatia:
Manchu Manoj starred 2005 film Sri is the first Telugu film for the actress who shot to fame with Sekhar Kammula directed Happy Days. Within no time, she had become top actress in Telugu as well as Tamil. It was Rajamouli’s Baahubali which gave much needed break for Tamannah. With the humongous success of the film, Tamannah is now back to track and has bagged some prestigious ventures.
3. Shriya Saran:
She is the senior most heroines in south industry right now. Entered Tollywood with 2001 film Ishtam, she got first break with Nagarjuna’s Santosham. Later, she grabbed films opposite all top stars in Telugu and Tamil industries. Though she has played brief and unimportant roles in recent times in few Telugu films, she came to limelight once again with her recent outing Gautamiputra Satakarni that starred Nandamuri Balakrishna. With the Krish directorial turning out to be a super hit, Shriya is getting some good offers in Telugu.
4. Kajal Agarwal:
Though her first film ‘Kyun! Ho Gaya Na…’ where she played a character artist released in 2004, she had got her first film in Telugu in 2007 with Teja directed Lakshmi Kalyanam. But, Krishna Vamsi’s Chandamama provided first break to Kajal who has ruled the south industry for ages as top actress. Despite continuous flops, Kajal had got many films in Telugu and Tamil in recent times. However, megastar Chiranjeevi’s Khaidi No 150 which is running successfully with record collections has given Kajal second life. The starlet is in talks with several production houses for their future ventures.
We can say all these heroines are age less divas who still are making waves in the industry with their charam as well as acting prowess!
