Being an actress ain’t as easy as it looks. Beyond being beautiful, one has to know the tricks and trade of acting skills, which is what helps have a prolonged career in the cinema.
India is the largest producer of movies. Bollywood, Kollywood, Tollywood and other regional cinema industries together produce more movies than any nations in the world.
Some of the actresses started their career on TV. Now, in this article, we will take a look at the three beautiful South Indian actresses who kick-started their careers on TV.
Sai Pallavi is a South Indian actress who entered the film industry from TV. The actor was a contestant in the reality show Ugail Yaar Adutha Prabhu Deva in the past.
She hogged the limelight after she performed the role of a teacher- ‘Malar’ in Malayalam movie ‘Premam’, which was her debut film in 2015. She was last seen in Malayalam film ‘Athiran’ opposite Fahadh Faasil.
The actress is riding high in confidence now, with her recent hit movies Athiran and Maari 2.
Hansika Motwani has long been regarded as one of the most potential stars in the region. However, before becoming a well-known performer in films, she began her career on the TV show Shaka Laka Boom Boom. She also appeared in the Des Mein Nikola Hoga Chand serial.
Her first big successful role was in the Hrithik Roshan and Preity Zinta starrer, ‘Koi Mil Gaya’. Years later she was cast opposite Govinda and Himesh Reshammiya who were twice her age at the time. After odd pairings as such, she tried her hand in South Indian movies and that turned out to be for good. Her debut film, ‘Desamuduru’ bagged her the Filmfare Best Female Debut.
Nayanthara began her career as a TV host and debuted on the small screen with the show Chamayam. She then kick-started work on her first film, Manassinakkare, directed by Sathyan Anthikad, in 2003.
Her hit movies include Viswasam, Naanum Rowdy Thaan, Darbar, Bigil, Raja Rani, Chandramukhi, Imaikkaa Nodigal.
