Artists does not have any barrier. They can go anywhere and everywhere to show their talents and get recognition. In film industry, we see actors from a particular industry working in different industries.
For an example, our own Kiccha Sudeep went to Telugu film industry and won the hearts of Tollywood audience with his performance in Eega. Versatile actor Prakash Raj has also not restricted his talent to any particular industry as he has worked in all the major film industries of India. But we have to note that more than actors, it is actresses, who move to different industries too often.
Well, it is because filmmaker loves to cast fresh faces from different industries. If we take examples of yesteryear actresses Ramya Krishnan and Khushboo, we realise that they were most sought after actresses in their times in every other South film industry.
In Sandalwood, filmmakers have often preferred to cast tried and tested face from other industries than introducing a fresh face. As a result, many from other industries, came here and ruled our Sandalwood.
Especially, Malayalam actresses created a niche for themselves and earned stardom here. Now, let us look for some of the popular Mallu girls, who have worked here.
