There is no denying the fact that Tollywood is suffering from heroine scarcity. There are many heroines but none of them have the caliber to be considered opposite top stars. To the top of it, many star heroines became seniors. Hot beauties like Shriya Saran, Kajal Agarwal, Tamannaah Bhatia and others are at the fag-end of their career.
Except for Pooja Hegde who is in the star heroines’ league, there is no other heroine in Tollywood. Though Rashmika Mandanna romanced Mahesh Babu in Sarileru Neekevvaru, many felt that she did not suit opposite Mahesh.
Star heroines should have the qualities like little bit acting prowess, few hits in their career and craze among movie lovers, apart from the red hot looks. The name of the star heroine should make people go to the theatres. None of the heroines are having that caliber and so makers are not considering them for the star heroes’ project.
Since crazy heroines are not affordable, many heroes are facing heroines’ problems. Shootings are getting delayed due to heroine problems. Even if Bollywood heroines are given offers, after scoring few hits, they are flying back to Mumbai. Heroines like Shraddha Kapoor is not connecting to Telugu viewers' hearts.
Though Rakul Preet Singh and the likes are available, their flops streak is scaring the makers sentimentally. Under these situations, some daring filmmakers should take the onus upon themselves to introduce new heroines. One wonder where the new red-hot crazy wannabe stars are there to entertain Tollywood movie lovers.
