Top stars are signing and lining up projects at fast pace much to the delight of not only fans but also movie lovers. However they are remaining clueless about their heroines. Most of the filmmakers are evading the question saying they will finalize them at the latest stage.
Heroines’ shortage is an old issue and directors, producers are trying their best to overcome the problem but they are unable to arrive at a long term solution. If they cast star heroines, fans and movie lovers complain of repetitiveness and routineness and they cannot experiment with newcomers for high profile films.
If they think of Bollywood beauties, they are scaring them with their starry tantrums. Though some are getting ready to give in to their demands, they are still facing shortage of heroines. Rajamouli's multi starrer RRR with Ram Charan and NTR is facing the same problem. Same is the case with Nagarjuna's Manmadhudu sequel.
Mahesh Babu's next with Anil Ravipudi is staring at heroines’ problems. The makers finalized Rashmika Mandanna for one heroine and when they contacted Sai Pallavi, she hurt by fans trolls, rejected the offer. Allu Arjun's next with Trivikram faced similar problem. so they finalized Pooja Hegde, but are trying to tempt people saying they are repeating a hit combo while Allu Arjun, Pooja Hegde's DJ just turned out to be an average grosser. Boyapati Srinu's next with Balakrishna, Chiranjeevi's next with Koratala Shiva too is experiencing heroines’ problems.
Top production houses are giving casting calls and even then they are not getting the required heroines. Though Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam industries too are facing heroines’ shortage, this is more in Tollywood. A top producer revealed that due to heroines shortage they are giving repeated opportunities to those present and the actresses are taking advantage of them by increasing their remuneration.
Young heroes like Vijay Devarakonda, Sharwanand, Nani, Akhil, Nikhil, Varun Tej do not require star heroines. But, they are not getting heroines suitable for their budget as even newcomers with one hit are behaving like top heroines.
