So who are those actresses gearing up to fill the void that will be created in the near future when actresses like Trisha and Nayantara move on to take up character roles, once their career as Tamil heroines reaches dusk?
These 5 actresses might go on to rule Tamil cinema for the next 10 years. Have a look.
Hansika is known as today's Khushboo within the Kollywood fraternity. Few years back, Khushboo came, saw and conquered Tamil cinema and was the reigning queen of Kollywood for many years.
If Hansika, who has started well in conquering many hearts in Tamil Nadu, achieves half of what Khushboo achieved, she will easily rule Kollywood at least for the next few years, if not a decade.
Gone are those days when only North Indian actresses used to conquer Tamil cinema. Make way for hotties from overseas who might find a new home here.
Amy Jackson, a model from London, is well on her way in becoming a leading Kollywood actress in the near future. She's got the looks and talent to do so.
This 21-year-old boxer-turned-actress is a bundle of talent. She's been in the news ever since her impressive debut opposite Madhavan.
She's also blessed with great looks to complement her acting skills. She's definitely someone to watch out for in the near future.
Keerthi Suresh has got this magical charm which has earned her numerous fans in such a short period of time.
Don't be surprised if she goes on to become one of the leading actresses in the next few years.
Sai Pallavi is one actress who has captured thousands of hearts even before making her Tamil acting debut.
With awesome acting and dancing skills, this cute looking girl is a great prospect for Tamil cinema. Not to mention her alluring raspy voice.
