We'll be seeing quite a few southern sirens in Hindi movies this year.

This year is going to be special for leading ladies, who are juggling south cinema with Bollywood.

So, after looking at what the biggest superstar actors and actresses are working on, here’s a look at southern sirens, who have promising careers in Bollywood:

Ileana D'Souza 
Films: Main Tera Hero, Happy Ending

Ileana made news for all the right reasons when she starred opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Barfi!.

A disappointing turn in the form of Phata Poster Nikhla Hero notwithstanding, Ileana has a lot to look forward to in weeks to come.

First up, will be David Dhawan's Main Tera Hero, where she is paired with Varun Dhawan.

She will follow it up with Saif Ali Khan's Happy Ending.

Kriti was supposed to make her debut in Bollywood first but some reshuffling of dates changed her plans, and she made her big screen debut with a Telugu film instead. It was the Mahesh Babu-starrer hit 1 - Nenokkadine.

Kriti will be seen in her first Hindi film later this year in Sajid Nadiadwala's Heropanti, a film that will launch Jackie Shroff’s son Tiger.

Film: Samrat and Co 

Madalasa Sharma’s name may not ring a bell.

After all, she made her Bollywood debut with the ill-fated Angel, which was promoted as the launch-pad of Sanjay Dutt's nephew Nilesh Sahay.

Even though the film was a disaster, Madalasa did get noticed.

Now, she has bagged a film with the Barjatyas, and will be seen in Rajshri's Samrat and Co, opposite Rajeev Khandelwal.
