There is a general belief that women tend to look the hottest and sexiest when they are in their 30s and as they approach 40s the signs of old age begin. But then Indian cinema is lucky to have some ladies who have touched 40 but are still the most admired and dreamt about by many people.
In the current group, the likes of Nadiya, Aishwarya Rai, Shobana, Ramya Krishna, Roja, Raveena Tandon etc have been ruling the roost. Though ladies like Nadiya, Roja are already into the mother roles, the others are managing to do important character roles and maintaining that oomph factor.
Incidentally, there are those who say some have the power to become heroines even today. One such example is Sonali Bendre and many feel she must be brought back to Tollywood given her record of hits here. So, the Tollywood male audience is having their visual feast with ladies from 20 to 40 onscreen.
