Top 5 Beautiful South Indian Actresses

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.


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.

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.

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.

  1. Vimala and Shriya Saran….both gorgeous :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

    Sorry I have only heard about Shriya and Trisha…rest were new faces for me…..but they all look so pretty!! :-*

  2. Beautiful girls! :)) Me louuu Shriya Saran!! πŸ˜€ I went gaga over her belly dancing in IIFA!! ….Katrina kaif’s tiny mini belly dance was nothing in front of hers!!! :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: It was an aweeesommme performance!!! :joker: :joker: :joker: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho:

  3. 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??

    1. 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…

  4. Shobhana and Kavya Madhavan are my favourite……….Kavya’s eyes are so beautiful :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: you have put a great list Shyna……….. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

  5. 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!!

    1. 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

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

  7. He 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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 πŸ™‚

    1. 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..

  11. 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 πŸ˜€ and ohh..Gopika (??? again unsure) As for Shriya…every time I see her I think “she tries too much” 😐

  12. 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!! 😐

  13. I thot she looks simple simple πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ 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 …

    1. 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…?

      1. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…heheheeee….I like her a lot cos she so cutely praying praying in that…heheheheeeeeeeeeee…i like that movie too πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Oh no we not different…see both of us like Shobana…and I would totally :spank: :spank: anyone who says she is not good :smug:

        1. in nandanam i like her acting…but rads pls pls dont tel me she looks good!!!but ya, u lik trisha the most na , like me, so let us :aajanachle: :handshake:

          1. Heheheeeee…. :aajanachle: :aajanachle: I should have typed under some other name…my hubby might be rolling and laughing at my comments…and he might totally agree with your list 😐

      1. Haahahahhahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa I think thats her name…I was so fascinated by her…she just puts this kaajal and looked so fascinted by such ppl…but me not sayign anything any more :lol2:

          1. :toothygrin: That one only…something about some lotus flower blooming in some pond and ya yaaaa..she naughty servant :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

              1. Thanks for the warning…me never going to watch…everrrrr…..:yahoo: Actually don’t watch very many Mallu movies anyway..just end up seeing if my hubby is watching anything and I am in the mood to not irritate him :toothygrin:

                  1. The last I saw/liked was I thinkkkkk “katha parayumbol”….see my knowledge of Mal movies is so outdated :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: and now pls don’t tell me you ddint like that movie either :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :tremble: :tremble:

  14. And I like Shobana…a lot…a lot of ppl used to say what’s so pretty about her and what’s so great about her acting in that movie…but it’s my fav fav movie :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

      1. Ya so I thought..but you know I remember everyoen going gagaaa over that movie and her acting..and I used to be like wowww..and then i heard ppl (from my family only!!) and they were like she doesn’t even look nice..and what’s so great about her 😐 😐 😐 I was like HUH?????

      1. oh ya i got the was a super hit but i found it boring..tamil remake was a hit too with rajnikanth, not heard abt this hindi remake though.

    1. ya sara..i wouldve considered asin and anushka in the 6th-7th slots…and tabu i dont think s considered as a south indian actress since she has acted in bollywood mostly

    2. anushka shetty is a south indian actress..? i dint know that i thought her 1st film and a couple after dat were bollywood only.!

        1. Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaadssssss…. u too brutus!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :violinbash: after all you are supposed to be my soul mate(dont forget we are left-right confused) :spank: :spank:

          1. I looked up that Traffic movie on Wiki – I keep confusing this guy Kunchako Boban…with another one….this other person he seems to be playing either deaf/dumb/or really stupid and dumb characters in all his movies :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

          2. I think trisha krishnan is d most beautiful n talentd actres of south india…her smile is so cute…i lik hr vry much in athadu opp mahesh..both make awsme pair :star:

    1. I like him :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: he always confused in all his movies – me like such characters – πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  15. Rads, in Traffic you wont find any fascinating actors, u must see it for the way they have taken the whole movie..very different treatment unlike the usual movies…have not seen anything like this in recent past in any language…i watched the whole movie as if i was in some other world..forgot to munch pop corns even

    1. :toothygrin: am like that…very few movies fascinate me…but if i like one movie i will sit as if am not in this world..

  16. sometimes i like her sometimes i dont….i like her in that lux ad…but in movies :idk: but definitely not in my top 5 list

  17. Shyna….i juz lovd dis post a lost.. πŸ™‚ we think alike..!! :-* all r my fav stars n kavya & shobhana r top.. I luv kavya 4 her big eyes, beautiful smile moreover her paavam mallu character… Shobhana..hmm..wot a fantastic structure yaar.. Manichitrathazhu is ma most favrt movie.. Donno how many time i hav watchd it.. watch everytime it comes on t.v.. Crazzy… πŸ™‚ n shyana.. Ur tastes r xactly like mine..i hav same opinion abt navya, manju, archana n all th actresses u hav commented abt.. Thinking v hav same wavelength… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  18. Hi Shyna,

    Nice compilation… I love Shobhana…. does any1 remember her with the Big B in remix of Kabhi Kabhi…. awesome dancer man!!!! !!! :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:

  19. I feel Vimala Raman has some manley features. I like Sherya, Trisha equally. They both have great dressing sense among the South Indian heroins. Shobana is all time beauty like Rekha. Kavya has grt eyes and skin that s it πŸ™‚

  20. my mom likes kavya’s unda kannugal (saucer eyes)

    This is purely abt Kavya’s eyes, if any person having such eyes read this comment, then it’s pure coincidence πŸ˜› :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

  21. Fantastic post.. :yes: I wud love to see Samvritha Sunil n Anushka shetty in the list. Ann Augustine is also good looking..
