Radhika Rajamani in Hyderabad

Many heroines featured in Telugu films this year but the following five leading ladies made a mark and left an impact on viewers.

Nayanathara

Film: Sriramarajyam

Nayanathara played Sita in Sriramarajyam, a mythological film which retold the Uttarakhanda of the Ramayana. This was perhaps a role of a lifetime and Nayanathara gave her all to it.

She delivered a calm, controlled, subtle and restrained performance and perfectly complemented Balakrishna, who portrayed Rama.

Films: 100 % Love and Oosaravelli

Tamannaah has had a good year in Telugu films. She played a sprightly, bubbly, talkative and emotional girl in the cute love story 100 % Love. She made a credible transformation from a village belle to an urban girl.

The crackling chemistry she shared with co-star Naga Chaitanya was a joy to watch on screen.

Film: Ala Modalaindi

Nithya made her debut in Telugu with Nandini Reddy's maiden film Ala Modalaindi. Not only did she deliver a fine performance, she also sang songs in the film and dubbed for it in her own voice. That's quite a lot for a debut film.

Nithya's acting was very natural and her pairing with Nani worked very well.   

Already there are comparisons with the late Soundarya. Endowed with loads of talent, Nithya is surely the best find of this year.
