For some reason, many actresses tend to believe that the most challenging role that they can play is that of a prostitute. They also believe that it is the only role that can fetch them awards and recognition as a performer. And this prostitution thing has become more like a pride among the Tollywood babes.
Whether it is coincidence or choice, Tollywood history has seen the likes of Jayasudha, Jayaprada, Savitri donning such roles. In today’s times the trend was taken over by the likes of Anushka, Sangeetha and others. And now few more are joining the list. They are Shriya Saran and Charmi.
It is true that the life of a real life prostitute is filled with some harsh realities and depicting that onscreen is quite content rich. But given the images that these starlets have set, it will take a lot for the audience to actually connect with what they are doing instead of checking what they are showing. As for doing such roles, it has become more or less like a pride for the Tollywood ladies.
