Most of the Tollywood actresses are tired of playing the same type of role in each of their films. Reigning star Nayantara recently said that she is fed up of playing the same glamorous babe in all her films. The actress said that the so called ‘Four scenes, four songs’ films do not appeal to her anymore. Although the actress enjoys commercial success, she still clamors for performance oriented roles that challenges her as an actor.
Nayantara gave a wonderful performance in the movie ‘Simha’ and she is ready to take up similar projects. Most of the A-listed actresses of Tollywood do not have much diversity in their roles, directors like to play it safe and turn them into eye candy for the audience. Right now it seems that Box office queen Anushka is playing safe with ‘Ragada’. Most of the actresses get tired of the same roles over time and want some variety in their films.
Actress Sneha Ullal said that she wants to experiment with different roles so did not embark on a signing spree right after ‘Simha’ became a huge hit. Right now Sneha is trying her luck in the Tamil films. The actresses claim that the audience usually follows the male protagonist throughout the course of most films and heroines are only reserved for the glam quotient. All the major actresses of Tollywood believe there is a lack of women centric films in Tollywood, hope the directors are listening. — Sampurn
