Until few years ago, Tollywood Veterans used to repeatedly complain about priority being offered to the North Indian Actresses inspite of their inability to speak or understand Telugu. Legends such as Dasari Narayana Rao, Kota Srinivasa Rao and Kaikala Satyanarayana raised this issue again and again.
North Indian Actresses who feature in big ticket films these days are very professional. In fact, They were very particular about mugging up the dialogues and knowing their meaning prior to the shoot. Pooja Hegde claimed the only condition from her side to the Tollywood Directors would be to provide the dialogues one day in advance so that she could prepare. She doesn't want to come to the shoot unprepared while sharing screen space with Star Heroes of Tollywood. In that way, Pooja improved her Telugu-speaking skills.
Even Shraddha Kapoor followed the same process while shooting for 'Saaho'. Though it's her first Telugu Flick, This Bollywood Beauty made a conscious attempt to learn her dialogues before going to the sets. Prabhas really appreciated the effort put in by Shraddha for doing complete justice to the character. Good to see Young Crop of Actresses leaving no scope for criticism!
