In recent years, Sree Leela, Rashmika Mandanna and Krithi Shetty have become more and more popular. Kajal Aggarwal, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah Bhatia and Samantha Ruth Prabhu are getting older and are not the leading female names. Even a relatively new heroine like Samyuktha ('Bimbisara' and 'Virupaksha' fame) is busier than Kajal and Anushka.
Nevertheless, two of the older heroines are perceived to retain the capability to maintain their careers: Anushka and Samantha. Interestingly, both actresses have upcoming releases scheduled within two consecutive weeks.
Come September 1, Samantha will grace the screen portraying the role of a lover girl-turned-housewife in Vijay Deverakonda's 'Kushi'. From the trailer and the lyrical videos that have been unveiled, she exudes a charming aura and appears to be well-suited for these roles.
On September 7, the celebrated 'Baahubali' actress will be portraying the role of a chef in 'Miss Shetty Mr Polishetty'. The success of this film would potentially owe credit not only to Naveen Polishetty but also to Anushka.
Let's wait and observe who garners more acclaim between Samantha and Anushka.
