A Telugu film without a lead actress is as rare as a film without songs. A beautiful lady next to the hero is essential in every movie.

When we consider the films in 2012 ans 2013 there are many actresses who have become popular, few for their looks and few for their acting talent.

Many producers feel that few actresses' presence have been proven lucky for them. Such beliefs along with the box office collections have made the queens of the industry.

Anushka Shetty for instance, after her spectacular performance in the film Arundhathi along with the Box Office returns of the movie, she became the most wanted actress, particularly in period films. Producers when they are investing crores in a film want to invest in an actress who can guarantee them success and performance in return. Anushka Shetty does that.
