Top 5 Beautiful South Indian Actresses

by Shyna on February 1, 2011 · 101 comments

We have seen many posts on IMBB about beautiful actresses, those with good make-up, good attire etc etc, but I don’t remember seeing any South Indian Actresses among them, and so I thought over and prepared this list- it contains few of my most favorite pretty actresses from the South (especially Malayalam & Tamil since I don’t watch Telugu or Kannada movies because of language problem!)whom I have always admired on/off screen, reasons being natural beauty, good make-up, good posture, good dress sense most of the times. Most of you might be seeing them for the first time but nevertheless hope you all enjoy!

Disclaimer- The list is exclusively based on my personal preference and some of you may have difference of opinion. I like each one of them for different reasons and all of them are unique in their own way and made me like them more with each movie. Also this is not a comprehensive list; these are the ones who suddenly came to my mind when I think about beautiful actresses from South.

Shobhana

One of the most graceful actresses in Malayalm and my ever favorite. Very expressive face with sharp features, she is an excellent dancer too. Any kind of character is safe in her hands, be it comedy, romantic or sentimental and I really like how she expresses the emotion with her beautiful eyes.

Shobhana

Vimala Raman

I love her face and big, beautiful eyes…She is mostly seen with good make-up.

Shriya Saran

I like Shriya for her charm, great body, good make-up & dress sense most of the times. She is a good dancer, basically a Kathak dancer, and recently started her own Yoga School (no wonder she has such sexy figure!)

Kavya Madhavan

Naturally pretty with good facial features, especially beautiful, expressive eyes. I like her the best in traditional attire; a very good dancer.

Trisha

She has a cute face and I like her make-up and way of dressing- carries herself well in traditional as well as western outfits. She has a well maintained body.

shriya is a great dancer no doubt…plus a yoga expert..so you can imagine the combined result of both!!!

Aditi February 1, 2011 at 11:39 am

Shyna, I loved reading your article!! :victory:
I have always liked Shobana a lot…though I haven’t seen any of her Malayalam or Tamil films…I have only seen her in ‘Mitr -my friend’ and maybe in a some Hindi films. I’ve never heard of Vimala, but she looks absolute gorgeous in these pictures!! :rose:
I like Shriya Saran too!! Isn’t she the one who had once slapped an eve-teaser??

Shyna February 1, 2011 at 11:55 am

Aditi, you must watch manichithra thazhu , with that single movie i became a fan of shobhana…Vimala is not a famous actress i believe but she is v pretty…

hey nice list Shyna

Shyna February 1, 2011 at 11:50 am

I was in double mind abt Meera actually..she is cute and i like her acting…but i dont find her very beautiful!!!

Reply

Shyna February 1, 2011 at 11:46 am

But see Jomol, I mostly watch Tamil movies and when i was thinking abt actresses from malayalam movies I was having a tough time to choose…Trisha is my favorite in this list…did you watch vinnai thaandi varuvaya?i thought about you when i saw those backwaters…lovely place!!and i loved Trisha in that movie, lovely makeup and outfits!!

Rati February 1, 2011 at 12:00 pm

OMG Vimla raman is sooo gorgeous and real looking. :D :D :D

Reply

Shyna February 1, 2011 at 12:05 pm

yeah Rati…i used to admire her beauty when I watch her movies…but she is so underestimated as an actress in malayalam, though she is not that bad at acting too

Reply

Neha S. February 1, 2011 at 12:01 pm

except for shriya and trisha i dont know anyone here…. but apart from these two gorgeous ladies; vimala is reaaally pretty too….. :))

I am going through the post again and again. Now I have fallen in love with Shobhna eyes. :D :d

Reply

Shyna February 1, 2011 at 12:17 pm

He he..you can easily make out that majority of my fav actresses have fab eyes!!!Dont you feel lovely eyes is one major criteria for beauty??Shobhana acts with her eyes i should say, no need for dialogue even!

Reply

Vinitha February 1, 2011 at 12:26 pm

Am completely in love with Shobhana! :woot: Shes such a talented dancer! I am a big fan of hers! I have watched Bhul Bhulaya versions in Malyalam, Hindi n Kannada n Shobhana was the best, I just cant forget that movie coz of her, I also like her movie ‘mitr’ its a good one.

Reply

Shyna February 1, 2011 at 12:34 pm

Bhul bhulayya in Hindi and all other languages were remakes of the original malayalam movie and i think no other actress can ever be matched with shobhana for her performance in the movie.

Reply

anks February 1, 2011 at 12:52 pm

You know Shyna, I realised after reading your article that India has such a bevy of beauties…. even a little bit of makeup and grooming makes the indian girls look so good… and yet, makeup is a ‘special occassion’ thing for most…. in almost all the pics, the girls are well made up and even with the barely there looks, they look so nice….

its a shame that we have hindi movie industry/ tamil/ bangla/ malyalam etc who dont intermix to work together…. it wud be so good if the movies made are multilingual so all can enjoy them! or if the talent from one state goes to the others as well….

i enjoyed your list :)

Reply

Shyna February 1, 2011 at 12:58 pm

I agree Anks, but what you said finally is happening now …i mean so many actresses from one language are in No 1 slots in other language movie charts..for eg shriya is basically a north indian but she is one among the top rated actressess in Tamil.Similarly Asin, vidya balan etc are basically mallus and they are famous in bollywood now..

Reply

Rads February 1, 2011 at 2:17 pm

I like Trisha the most..Kavya Madhavan…err..not really…I know a lot of ppl find her beautiful..but I just find her too traditional looking and not in a good way but I DO like her for ditching that guy and moving on with her life..and fast…now pls don’t tell me she has gone back to being married….liked Manju Warrier (?? spelling) better..but then I know I would be in the tiny minority or maybe the only namoona saying this :D and ohh..Gopika (??? again unsure) As for Shriya…every time I see her I think “she tries too much” :|

Reply

Shyna February 1, 2011 at 2:20 pm

It is all personal preference Rads..i like manju warrier as an actress but is she pretty?? :idk: and gopika, i neither like her looks nor her acting!! :|

Reply

Rads February 1, 2011 at 2:23 pm

I thot she looks simple simple :D :D :D No idea about her acting…she acts bad is it?? Oh and there was this Mal movie I saw recently..bits of it rather…and there was these 2 superpretty girls in it..don’t know their names either….should ask my hubby what the movie was….ohhhhhhhhhhhh…and I like Navya Nair..she was the one who came in that movie…ufffooo..again forgot name…you know she keeps praying to this photo for everything …

Reply

Shyna February 1, 2011 at 2:28 pm

i dont like navya at all :spank: rads we are not at all similar in taste!!! :smug: :smug: i think you are saying about the movie nandanam…?
