Telugu film industry has a shortage of heroines all the time. Despite the arrival of new beauties every year, only a few become star heroine and rule the roost for a few years. Stars like Kajal, Samantha and Anushka went through their golden period and now earned the tag of senior heroines.
It is the time of Kannada beauties Pooja Hegde and Rashmika Mandanna. They have become the go-to heroines for every crazy film in Tollywood. Dusky girl Pooja Hegde acted with Allu Arjun in 'DJ' and recent blockbuster 'Ala Vaikunthapuramlo'. She was paired beside Mahesh in 'Maharshi' and romanced NTR in 'Aravinda Sametha'. Apart from that, she is doing the female lead in Prabhas's upcoming film and Akhil's 'Most Eligible Bachelor'. She is rumored to be the heroine in Pawan Kalyan and Harish Shankar's film.
On the other hand, Rashmika is catching up with Pooja rapidly. She acted alongside Mahesh in 'Sarileru Neekevvaru'. Her recent outing 'Bheeshma' got super hit talk and is expected to score big at the box-office. She is the heroine in Allu Arjun and Sukumar's prestigious film.
Recent news is that Trivikram is thinking of roping these two for his next film NTR. In this way, both these ladies are grabbing one star hero project after the other. As star heroes do not show any interest in working with fresh heroines and the audience not encouraging senior heroines is making these two a hot property in Tollywood.
This may continue until our filmmakers come up with another gorgeous beauty who can beat both of them.
