15 Progressive and Strong Headed Female Characters of the Past Decade

Not very often we see well written female lead characters in Telugu Cinema. Even if we get some strong roles, sometimes actresses fail to deliver. But this has changed in the past decade as we were introduced to extremely talented writers and actresses. Writers like Tharun Bhascker, Sekhar Kammula, Venkatesh Maha, etc. gave us some memorable female lead characters. They were brilliantly portrayed by actresses like Sai Pallavi, Ritu Varma, etc. Though some roles feel like they are strong female roles, if we take a deeper look they aren’t that progressive or strong-headed. Here, we only listed out 15 well written and performed progressive female characters of Telugu Cinema in the past decade. Take a look!
