Puri Jagannadh is the synonym for aggression, carefree nature, and straightforwardness. But he’s not careless and he has a strong philosophical outlook. For the fans, Puri Jagannadh means aggressive and roguish heroes who are known as Puri mark heroes or Puri Jagannadh heroes. Such is the impact his characterisations created among the fans. He has rewritten or enhanced the images of almost all of our star heroes.
But what about heroines? There is a mistaken thought process that Puri Jagannadh heroines are often meek and play second fiddle to the heroes. They lack the aggression that is trademark of Puri heroes. But what people miss is: he has given us several heroines who are equally aggressive and often loud in their characterisations. Take, for example, Suchi from Idiot. It is Ravi Teja who comes to our mind when we think of the movie. But despite often needing hero’s help, Suchi played by Rakshitha is a strong-willed girl.
How can we forget the ultra aggressive and hatke Chandini (the dangerously sexy Nabha Natesh) in a one of its kind mass role in iSmart Shankar. Didn’t Trisha show attitude that’s equal to that of Bujjigadu in that Prabhas starrer? Agreed! The heroines in his films are often at the receiving end of the aggression of the heroes, but there are heroines like Jyothi Lakshmi (played by a terrific Charmi) and Pallavi in Golimaar who sang Magaallu Otti Mayagallu (Priyamani).
Here are 12 aggressive Puri Jagannadh heroines who stood firm in Man’s World. They are strong willed. Confident. And wear attitude on their sleeves.
