Bollywood has always welcomed new talents from South industries, especially actresses. Many actresses, who play the female lead roles in South Indian movies have dreamt of entering into the industry and make their own identity in Bollywood.
Compared to actors, many actresses from South have made their way to Bollywood. Earlier in the 70s and 80s, popular South actresses like Sridevi, Jayapradha and Vyjayanthimala achieved a successful transition in Bollywood. It is also said that Sridevi and Jayaprada were on screen rivals in Bollywood.
Veteran actor Vyjayanthimala, who ruled South Indian film industry for two decades became the most wanted actress in Bollywood in late 50s. She also replaced Madhubala and gained successful stardom in Bollywood.
The same trend was back in late 2000, where few South Indian actresses Asin, Bhumika Chawla and many others made their way to Bollywood. Few of them got recognised and were flooded with movie offers in Bollywood, while few others like Trisha Krishnan and Tamanna, just made a blink and miss appearance.
