8 South Indian Actresses From Filmy Families

8 South Indian Actresses From Filmy Families

7 Mar 18 @ 10:45 AM | By Vamshi

Down the southern film industry, majority of heroines are basically imported from North India. One blockbuster result at box office, the actress turns into an overnight star and then offers start pouring from other industries as well. In the next few years,  she would likely pair with all the heroes and then goes fading. But over the years we have hardly seen a native heroine who could have stayed for long and make a big name for herself in the industry. Star families generally don’t encourage their women to explore a career in the glamour world for inexplicable reasons. But here is a list of heroines, who defied the trend, who arise from star families and went onto hog the limelight.

  1. Niharika Konidela

    She needs no introduction, she is the daughter of Megastar Chiranjeevi’s brother Naga Babu. Arising from Megastar family is already a pressure but Niharika Konidela did her homework before she debuted. Niharika started off on the small screen followed by a web series and then short films. After gaining enough experience she made her silver screen debut with Oka Manasu which fared above average at box office. Now, Niharika is in talks with a couple of filmmakers.

  2. Manchu Lakshmi

    Daughter of Dialogue King Mohan Babu, this Manchu lady is quite active on small and big screen. She handles multiple reality shows and is grabbing opportunities coming her way. Probably Manchu Lakshmi is the only Telugu lady to have featured on American television as she did couple of shows before she relocated to India. Currently she has a Hollywood film in her kitty.

  3. Shruti and Akshara Haasan

    Darling daughters of Universal hero Kamal Haasan are quite multi-talented. Before making their on-screen debut, Shruti and Akshara were involved in the filmmaking process. Shruti’s personal interest is in music and she composed music for Kamal’s Eenadu which is the official Telugu remake of A Wednesday. Shruti has featured in blockbuster hits in Telugu like Gabbar Singh, Race Gurram and Srimanthudu to her credits. On the other hand, Akshara is currently assisting her dad in his directorial ‘Sabash Naidu.’ She is yet to make her mark in Telugu.
