Our general understanding of a heroine is that she is present to add glamour to the movie and also to romance the hero and fill the songs. This is something more commonly found in Tollywood industry. But despite such a template, there have been few starlets who created a niche for themselves.
First in that list is Mahanati Savitri. In almost every film of hers, she created her own unique impact and this is the reason why she has a strong set of admirers even today. Eventually, Savitri was joined by the gracious Soundarya. Though her career was short-lived, Soundarya became a darling for many lady audiences.
After Savitri and Soundarya, the only person to really enter that club is the awesome beauty Anushka. She is a performance oriented beautiful actress who has also shown impressive glamour. In her intro scene in Rudramadevi all were shocked whether it was Anushka because she was extremely slim. Now, in Size Zero she is total opposite. That way, she has got such perseverance and determination which is hard to find in others.
