Tamannaah grabs limelight in Tollywood

Six years ago when Tamannaah started her career in the south, she was just one of the many glam dolls who dotted the horizon for the chauvinistic leading man to take his pick. However, the success of her last two movies has changed this perception forever

Though the dainty south actor, Tamannaah has been appreciated in the past  for her acting, her scintillating performance in the Junior NTR starrer Oosaravelli has grabbed audience attention like never before. Essaying the role of a girl with a traumatic past, Tamannaah captured the imagination of Tollywood. “Such roles are rare and I am glad that I got the opportunity to play such a strong character in what was a hero-dominated movie,” she says and adds that unlike in the past where friends would complement her on ‘looking pretty or cute’ , this time everyone loved her acting. Coming immediately after the success of 100 Percent Love where she managed to steal the spotlight from Naga Chaitanya, this is one lady who is truly leading the way. We wonder if her arch rival Ileana’s fall in Tollywood is making Tamannah’s success even sweeter?
