Indian cinema has completed 100 years and the South Indian film industry, which consists of four languages like Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam, has made an enormous contribution to it. There was a time when Punjabi girls ruled the South Indian screen! But gone are the days and hardly a few girls from this part are featured on screen today. The thrones have been usurped by a bunch of ambitious Malayali girls.
These Malayalam actresses are educated and uninhibited, talented and beautiful! They first debuted in Malayalam film industry and proved their metal. They impressed the filmmakers in other South Indian languages with their wonderful performances and glamour and won chance to feature in their respective languages. Some of them proved successful in other languages and they never looked back to Mollywood, while few others returned home without having successful career in other languages.
A host of Malayalam actresses like Nayantara, Bhavana, Meera Nandan, Meera Jasmine, Mamta Mohandas, Bhama, Ananya, Asin, Gopika, Kavya Madhavan, Padmapriya, Navya Nair, Remya Nambeesan, Shweta Menon, Sindhu Menon, Amala Paul and Parvathy Omanakuttan have invaded the Tamil, Telugu and Kannada film industries and become top actresses there.
We pay a pictorial tribute to these Mallu girls, who have invaded the South Indian celluloid! Continue to see them in the slide show.
