Guess who is the number one actress in South India? It is not Trisha or Tammana. Not even Anushka or Nayanthara. It is a common complaint that our heroines do not concentrate on their career when they are in peak. It is always true for most of the heroines. Nayanthara was the number one actress in Tamil and Malayalam for a long time. She decided to end her career abruptly due to her affair with Prabhudeva. In the same way Milky White Beauty Tamanna who climbed the steps steadily for the number one actress position headed down due to the affair with her lover boy.
Anushka who acted quite maturely, managing both the industries, is now starting to get numerous complaints regarding her time mismanagement and reserved nature. Kajal Agarwal is the cute girl we saw in many class Tamil movies like “Saroja” and “Modhi Vilayadu”. She did not make it big in either Kollywood or Tollywood for a long time. But she kept striving sincerely for a long time, until her blockbuster hit “Magadheera” was released. The film is dubbed into “Maveeran” and released in Tamil too. This mega budget film portrayed her as a princess and a chirpy college girl. She proved her acting mettle in the film.
Numerous directors realized her potential after this film and started to book her as their heroines. In fact her major hit in Tamil “Naan Mahaan Alla” came after this film. She is the heroine of leading stars like Prabhas and Junior NTR in Telugu now. In Tamil she is the heroine of Surya in “Maatraan”. Surya’s blockbuster hit “Singam” is remade in Hindi starring Ajay Devgan. Kajal bragged the heroine role of the film amidst great competition. She also acts in the Kannada film “Thathasthu” opposite Chirag. She is doing two other Telugu films with Mahesh Babu and Pavan Kalyan.
Kajal Agarwal is the number one actress in the South Indian film industry as of now. She is paid the highest salary as well. She gets more than 1 and a half crores for a film already. After getting booked in “Dabang” remake with Pavan Kalyan she had hiked her salary further, beating Trisha and Nayanthara’s salaries. The actress will climb great heights if her Hindi venture does well. Who knows, someday she might compete with Aishwarya and Kareena for 6 or 7 crores salary.
