Kollywood is not the only film industry that Malayalam actresses have taken over. If the trend continues, they'll soon become the dominating force in the Telugu film industry too.
Even before Nayantara made her debut in Telugu, Asin had established herself as one of the leading and most promising young heroines. Just when her career was hitting a slump, Nayantara made a powerful arrival in Tollywood. She tops the list of Malayali heroines in Tollywood with three new films in her hands.
Now, Asin has bounced back very well with the recent release Annavaram. Then, there are other actresses like Meera Jasmine, Gopika, Samvritha Sunil and Shridevika who all have one film each in Telugu.
Like the Tamil film industry, Tollywood too has plenty of heroines but only a very few of them are from Andhra Pradesh.
