Since the 1990s, Telugu films have only begun accepting outsiders as leads. Even in the 1960s there were actresses from other languages, but not all of them dominated the industry without knowing the language.
Other language actresses are also rooting for Telugu TV serials. Take TV’s Top 5 Serials and here’s a list of major actresses from them and their birthplace:
Premi Vishwanath – Karthika deepam – Kerala
Sujitha – Vadinamma – Kerala
Kavya Sri – Gorintaku – Bangalore
Mounaragam – Priyanka Jain – Maharashtra
Ashika Gopal Padukone – Rajakumari- Bengaluru
Katheeka Deepam gets a TRP of more than 18 TVR daily and Vadinamma gets more than 15 TVR. Looking at the trend, many are commenting that the dubbing artists and even writers will come from other languages, in coming days.
