Indian cinema is home to the various film industry’s, most strikingly Bollywood and the next being Tollywood. And its actors/actresses are the ones that remain synonymous to that industry. The rising popularity of the South Film Industry amongst Indians is growing as the movies and the actors, actresses expand their horizons touching upon different film industry’s and work on multi-linguals and crossover films which are slowly increasing by the day.
And in this land of cinephiles where stars are gods and cinema is religion, the Vogue Magazine, one of the leading magazines for fashion, beauty, lifestyle and entertainment featured their cover story for October 2019 with a stunning picture of the 3 of the most loved, admired and path-breaking stars from the southern film industry; Mahesh Babu, Nayanthara and Dulquer Salmaan.
In recent times Mahesh Babu, Nayanthara and Dulquer Salmaan have been at the centre of stardom with their unique movie choices and their undying commitment to the craft. Be it Mahesh who has blossomed since age 4 playing small roles to the lead in Raja Kumarudu for which he bagged the Best Male Debut at the State Nandi Awards to doing ground breaking films like Okkadu in 2003, Pokiri in 2006 to Maharshi in 2019 or Nayanthara who has starred in multi-starrers where she is the lead of the narrative and women centric films where she is at the top of the cast and even Dulquer who has changed the conventional approach to acting in Malayalam cinema to bagging roles from Bollywood movies, what they all have in common is their passionate approach and dedication to make films that transcends boundaries and connects masses from generation to generation. And it is this professionalism that makes these 3 stars the pioneers of the current generation of the southern film industry.
