Cinema has seen many transformations ever since its inception. There was a time when men played the female part too because women were not allowed to face the camera. After that, there was a phase when an actress was expected to know everything – dance, music, acting and what not. There have been actresses who were a complete package. To quote a few, Banumathi, Padmini and Savitiri who ruled the silverscreen by their presence. They had strong roles on par with the heroes. With change in time, Kollywood was flooded with heroines from other states.
Well, Tamil girls like Sridevi, Hema Malini and Rekha have reigned the Bollywood so we have no complaints on that. But it is very surprising to see that when actresses go from Kollywood to other languages, 90% of them learn the language eventually. But Kollywood has been missing on that part for a long time. Dubbing artists flourished because most of the leading ladies did not know the language. To break this norm, we now have young actresses who are changing the rhythm by dubbing on their own. We hope more names get added to this list and a day will come when an actress doesn't dub on her own, people will get surprised about it. Few young actresses who speak Tamil:
1. Sai Dhanshika
3. Aishwarya Rajesh
4. Shruthi Haasan
