With its huge projects, South India has transformed the film industry. Additionally, it aims to appeal to a larger and better audience across India. As a result, south celebrities are now collaborating with Bollywood actors in Bollywood films and vice versa. This is a trend that is very new but is growing. Here is a list of South celebrities who have amazed Bollywood with their performances.
1. Allu Arjun
Indian actor Allu Arjun is one of the most good-looking south celebrities. He is one of South India’s highest-paid actors. Allu Arjun is well known for his dancing as well. He has won numerous awards, including five Filmfare Awards South and five Nandi Awards. We were all in love with Allu Arjun’s performance in Pushpa. Not just the movie, but his performance made waves in Bollywood. We still admire his famous line, “Main jhukega nahi sala.”
The Telugu version of Pushpa: The Rise was out on December 17, 2021. Additionally, it is available in dubbed Malayalam, Tamil, Kannada, and Hindi versions. Critics gave the movie good reviews and praised Allu Arjun’s performance. Some of the best films of Allu Arjun that are dubbed in Hindi are Happy, Arya, Arya 2, Race Gurram, Sarrainodu, Son Of Sathyamurthy, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.
Indian actor Prabhas primarily appears in Telugu movies. In Indian cinema, he is also among the highest-paid actors. Additionally, since 2015, Prabhas has thrice appeared on Forbes India’s Celebrity 100 list. It was because of his fame and wealth. He has been a nominee for Filmfare Awards South and has also won the Nandi Award and the SIIMA Award.
Prabhas played the lead character in S. S. Rajamouli’s grand action film Baahubali: The Beginning in 2015. Later, in 2017, he returned to the role in its sequel, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. It made over 1,000 crores in all languages in just ten days. As a result, this made it the first Indian movie ever to accomplish this feat.
