Tuesday Trivia! Current heroines who have acted with 3 Generation superstars

Tuesday, February 5, 2019 • Tamil Comments

In this week's Tuesday Trivia we take a look at some of the current heroines who have had the talent and staying power to star opposite three generations of superstars.  We need to celebrate these icons as Kollywood has been a man's universe over the years and their achievements are remarkable to find favor among the audiences for such a long time.

Jyothika

Jyothika made her acting debut simultaneously with Suriya and Ajith in 'Poovellaam Kettupaar' and 'Vaali' and the rest is history.  In the past twenty years she has acted opposite the legends Kamal Haasan and Rajini (though not the superstar's pair in 'Chandramukhi'),Prabhu, Arjun, Sarathkumar, Vijay, Vikram, Prashanth, Madhavan, Shaam, and Prabhu Deva.  Among the current generation Jo has paired opposite Simbu, Vidharth and Prithviraj.

Simran

Simran is the luckiest among the leading ladies as her debut itself was in 'Once More' starring Nadigar Thilagam Sivaji Ganesan in which she was paired opposite Vijay.  Thereafter Simran has romanced Kamal Haasan, Ajith, Suriya, Madhavan, Prashanth, Murali, Prabhu Deva, Arjun, Sarathkumar and S.J. Suryah.  Her dream of playing Superstar Rajinikanth's pair only came to life in 2019 when she made him and fans swoon in the blockbuster 'Petta'.

Sneha

Sneha the eternal girl next door beauty first made a stunning impression opposite Prashanth in 'Virumbugiren' and slowly rose in stature to become the leading lady of Kamal Haasan in 'Vasoolraja MBBS'.  In between her romantic interests include Arjun, Ajith, Vijay, Suriya, Shaam, Srikanth and from the later superstars Dhanush and Simbu in 'Pudhupettai' and 'Silambattam' respectively.

Anushka

When Anushka made a silent debut in Tamil opposite Maddy in 'Rendu' directed by Sundar C few would have thought that she would one day attain superstardom and carry films on her own.  She has matched her screen presence opposite such huge Kollywood megastars as Vijay, Ajith, Suriya, Vikram and much later Rajinikanth.  She has also starred opposite younger generation heroes, Karthi, Simbu and Arya.

Trisha

The evergreen beauty Trisha made a rather low key debut opposite Shaam in 'Lesa Lesa' but picked up steam instantly and was the most preferred heroine of Vijay, Ajith, Suriya, Vikram, Siddharth and Kamal himself.  She has paired up with almost all the younger generation heroes including Simbu, Dhanush, Jayam Ravi, Jiiva, Arya, Vishal and fulfilled her dream of working with Rajinikanth in 'Petta' as well.  She is back in the reckoning after realistically portraying a star crossed lover opposite Vijay Sethupathi in '96' and she is now concentrating more on women centric roles.

Nayanthara

The queen bee of Kollywood had the good fortune of starring opposite Rajinikanth in her very second film 'Chandramukhi' and ever since she has maintained her numero uno status and going from strength to strength.  Her leading men of different generations include Vijay, Ajith, Suriya, Karthi, Vikram, Sarathkumar, S.J. Suryah, Jayam Ravi, Jiiva, Arya, Vishal and Udhayanidhi Stalin.  She is the only heroine who has starred opposite the millennium superstars Simbu and Dhanush and the current ones Vijay Sethupathi and Sivakarthikeyan.  In all probablity if the buzz around Kollywood is anything to go by she is the sweet surprise in Kamal Haasan's 'Indian 2' directed by Shankar as well.
